I only took one pic ::):

This was early on Saturday morning.

Had a great time as usual.  Rode over on the Friday and arrived about 9.30 in the evening.  Kev and Sparky made the tea and 50ft provided moral support (read: little in the way of actual assistance :D) while I put my tent up in the dark.

Up early-ish on Saturday to find that more firewood had blown down the previous day :woohoo: and Sparky had brought even more axes  :woohoo: so spent most of the day drinking tea, talking smurf and using axes to either throw at things or chop things up.  50ft had cooked and dehydrated a chicken biryani so we had that for dinner - very nice it was too. :)  Made a very large dent in Taxi Dad's whisky that night. :facepalm:

Sparky very kindly brought me breakfast on Sunday (I think he was itching to get going as he'd promised me a lift into town to go shopping) then we headed off to Waitrose for provisions while it was yakking down.  I also got the chance to take a look in his fabled shop - I'll never know how he manages to cram so much rust stuff into such a small space. :D  The rain cleared up by the evening and Huntsman arrived :woohoo: so we were able to get the barbecue on and commence operation-eat-it-up whilst going on to make a slightly smaller dent in Huntsman's whisky. :facepalm:

Monday morning was spent mostly avoiding packing up, but eventually I had to get going and headed off into the wind for a very long ride back. :(

Was really good to see everyone (Sparky, Kev, 50, Taxi Dad, Cupboard) again and great to meet Huntsman.  Shame the others couldn't make it, but hopefully they'll be back next year.  Big thanks to Sparky for arranging the site and providing so much of the stuff that makes the weekend run smoothly, and to Kev for the tents and facilities.  Also to everyone there for their generosity, openness and friendliness.  It really is a great way to spend a weekend. :salute:

You seemed to have at least a rough idea what you were doing, but might need the practice, so I let you crack on.  :P I was on hand ready to laugh, point, and generally take the piss should anything have gone wrong though :whistle:

Another great weekend at the UK meet, a soggy rainy one at times, but great none the less. Thanks again to Sparky415 for organising the venue, and a thank you to everyone that could make it.   
It was great to meet up with Sparky415, 50ft-trad, hiraethus and Taxi Dad again, and to meet both Cupboard and Huntsman for the first time.

The others have mentioned some of the weekends activities, and as they say, come to the meet to find out everything.  That being said, here's a few pics/vids of the weekend

The Camp



An inviting fire pit and the everontheboil kettle


Expert axe throwing


Wood Butchering (with the smallest axe Sparky had)


Hopefully those that were unable to make it this year will be able to attend next year.

Thanks again guys and see you next year.

Also thanks to Grant for a few goodies to hand out. I ordered some MTo and Swiss Army Knight patches to hand out and Grant kindly added some extra stickers and wrist bands to my order, which were greatly received at the meet  :tu:

The weather was great today so I set to and aired my tent and the club house. They'd been drying in the garage since I got back, and  I also took the opportunity to seam seal the club house to prevent it wicking through the ties and dripping inside like we got at the meet.

And I gotta say I was pretty successful at it - with almost a 100% sticking in rate .......  As long as I hit the targets .... quite a few went sailing over the top
Easy enough... just miss the target all the time and you get to 100% :tu:

It was a great weekend :)

First time eating dehydrated food, first time meeting Kev, not the first time arriving in the rain.

Thanks to everyone who made it happen! I'm sorry I missed the last day.

Gareth - I'm always happy to collect you from an airport or station if that helps :)

Still super jealous of the great time you guys always seem to have!

One of these days I'll get there... one of these days...
