plus it might entice others from a far if theres a group staying over there.


I was hoping to camp over and tackle Walna Scar Road the next day (early night for me then! :oops: ), or maybe Garburn on the way home, whatever anyone fancied really :)

I camped in Chapel Stile last April and despite wearing every scrap of clothing I had with me and two sleeping bags, I still ended up in the car with the heater on full blast. I wouldn't want to do it at this time of year unless you have some pretty serious kit.

Brrrrrrrrr

Camping? Nah. Not at this time of year. I was thinking of chipping in with the Yorkies and getting a nice cottage for the weekend. Local beers, cognac and cigars, fine food etc.

I will of course think of you lot shivering in your vangos.

Reminds me of the night I spent camping in a £20 Halfords 'Carnival' tent.

A crap single skin tent at minus 5 is not that much fun.

Right the Lake District National ride announcement thread is now up.

Hoping to see a strong NWA contingent there.

Dunno about 'strong', I was thinking more 'weak, shivering and whining', but will be there... 8)
