Some images from Kielder

Recommended Posts

I came back from Kielder yesterday afternoon. The weather was just too bad, the wind and rain were just making it impossible to stay. Dont know if anybody else left early as I think they were all still at the Castle when we packed up.

Once again it was dark when I arrived (pitching tents in darkness is not a fun experience) so I never got to put any names to faces. I believe everybody was in the Anglers Arms but we had an 11year old with us so had to stay in the lounge, the Wylan Rocket ale was however very good :D

Look what you missed :) :) :):D:) :) :) :) :)

Well along with all the rain and high winds we had this too.....

This was what we woke up to the first morning due to the hight winds...

Even though Moonplodger (Kev) scooped me at pool (Scotland V's England = usual result) :insects1:

See you in October folks....I hope

The sky opened up for about 45mins about 3.30 am Sunday morning, not enough time to do anything serious but it was an astounding sight...

Brave souls, camping in those conditions doesn't look like a lot of fun, it's bad enough in the rain.

Hi all, looked very cold up there.

I was wondering, did anyone who went this year or in the past have a Sky Quality Meter? I went last year and was amazed by the sky (in between the clouds!), I was wondering what the readings wound be up there?

Hi Tom,

Things got good around 10.00 for about an hour. Ok for me as I'm not at work. Poor for everyone else. You did the right thing.

Hi Kong,

No meter readings, but someone said around mag 6. Not that it means much to me.

Dave.

My tent stood up to the weather very well mate i also think it protected your a little from the strong winds.
