Have a good one. Still breezy. Only spot I could see at BC when there in Dec was couple miles up road, or the hill a few miles south, so interested see where you pitch up. Or there's under the verandah in the Tuns car park!

Good point, although I didn't want to presume that it was "available to anyone" as per The Rules rather than just "selected customers" :wink: . Although what with Al being a gentleman it probably is :smile: .

I hope everyone had a great weekend, managed to get out on Friday before the worst of the weather came in so I am now 2/12 and looking good. The plan was to head up to a local area / Iron age fort, it had been nearly a year since my last visit here and what should have been an easy route to the top of the hill and a nice clearing to bed down on turned into a bit of a hike a bike, there was no chance of us reaching the clearing, the rain was getting heavy and there was lots of fallen timber to climb over so we bedding down on the flattest bit of hill we could find. We brewed up then got our heads down for a fairly good nights sleep despite sliding down the hill every time I moved.

The morning was quite nice, very mild, the spot was quite sheltered so it was an age before the sun cleared the ridge, we rolled back into town before stopping at Morrisons for a vegan breakfast and a pot of tea.
Fingers crossed there will be a second this month.
