Oh my word I am spoiling you all - The ice is in the freezer. Wow's arn't I organised.

Tom I am so sorry I just assumed we would all be at work today. Duh... next time we could do this though if it would be something we want to do.

Thanks Callisto - you must get to a CSP at some point.

Do you know I don't think I will be able to sleep tonight. Still need to go to asda... does anyone need anything? Will log on again before I go.

Speak soon

No problem Nina, I am just getting excited about CSP3 (As you know, I have never really grown up - still a flaxen haired 8 year old little boy in many ways, thank goodness).

Nothing needed at ASDA, if we need anything for tomorrow evening, then we can always drop over there and get it then.

I will pack the car tomorrow morning (probably after a poor nights sleep - too excited) and head off about midday - so should be down to yours about 1.30pm.

Ice in the freezer Nina? Guess I better bring some white wine then, if I know You and Val the white wine will be a necessity : )-

I think I will head for bed now - need all the beauty sleep I can get.

Love

Tom xx

Just got up, so am stumbling about thinking about packing the car. Down to CSP3 about 1.30pm.

Sorry you can't make it this time David, but we will see you at Galloway.

Weather forecast completely changed from last night, now suggests cloud for tonight/tomorrow and a wee bit of drizzle :rolleyes:

Oh well, c'est la vie. I hate camping in wet weather.

Anyway, off to start loading the car.

Car largely loaded. And I mean LOADED.

14" Flextube GOTO, Berlebach + Skytee, 4" fract + white light filter, Solarmax 60, 2 powertanks, eyepieces, 15x70 and 20x80 binoculars, tent, 2 sleeping bags (it may get chilly), blow up mattress, beer, winr and "Scottish amber fluid".

Still to load: Laptop, projector + speakers, ext'n cable, camera bag, clothes .... oh, and ME.

Phew - will need a sleep after loading all that. The poor car is groaning.

I think the astro kit loaded inside the car may be worth more than the car itself.

We're all here - I had an expensive saga relating to tentpoles, but thanks to Nina and Tom (and a visit to an outdoor $hop) saw me with a new tent.

All set up, watching the clouds grudgingly think about clearing with some food on the barbecue.
