    Such cutting wit. I've ridden further to camp in a field for a few hours riding and a pint or few so yes, I am considering this. I'll be looking forward to meeting the meatspace you.

    Ok, Ill commit and since Ill be coming ALL the way from the saarf...... I could get there at a hump (weather depending) Friday by 7 ish pm, or saturday morning 10 ish. Road ride must be offered for me to make the trek. No need for speed but at good ride and a longish run with lunch and tea stops in between (120 miles?) Is that acceptable? Ill bring me own cider...lol

    The B6047 has got to be worth a viewing in the crisp January frost and/or snow ?

    Well, I was looking forward to going out for a ride on this event, however, I may have changed my mind.

    Not wishing to sound too precious, I thought that it might be nice for GSs to go for an off road ride, and, if you don't have a GS, bring what you have. (Various exceptions apply) But as it seems most are going to be using their super slim, lightweight, fettled, helium lightened off road 'tools' for the job, I'm a little put off as to the suitability of the tracks and trails for my G/S.

    So, in order to prevent me from having an Elton John style hissy fit on the weekend, I am going to opt out of the off road ride and join Arkwright on his Airhead Tour of Lincolnshire and the East.

    Probably a good idea, as the green lanes in the area are particularly muddy & greasy & a GS will be a handful - not something I would do -
    In fact, If Mikeyboy does the job I think he'll do for me, I'll be doing them on an ultralight XT250, rather than my 650 X Country

    I have some more details for the intrepid campers
    the cost of the weekend will be; £25 this will include,
    camping for both nights,
    breakfast Saturday morning,
    two course evening meal on Saturday night.
    which I think is a damn good deal
    as previously stated tom will do us bacon cobs on sunday ,(let him know on the Saturday night)
    if we need a chemical loo this will be extra
    although I have not been asked by tom ,I think it would show goodwill for us to pay in advance for the weekend
    so he is not out of pocket if the weather turns and folk start crying off.
    hopefully you will all be in agreement with this.
    mike
