Kelling Heath Chat Thread (Autumn 2011)

Recommended Posts

Good for overnight or a couple of days - just keep an eye out for condensation - and give it a good airing every day :)

Oh dear, I seemed to have pulled the ligaments in my lower back one week before Kelling !!!! (A recurring old problem from my Nursing days which only happens once in a while). Very annoying and painful. Would any of the people who will be there on Thursday be willing to give me a hand putting up my tent and lifting my NEQ6. It would be great if more than one person could respond in case of availability at the vital moment/spread the load.

I would be terribly grateful and not likely to arrive until mid-afternoon.

Please state your pitch number and or send me a PM.

Many thanks

Carole

Thanks, Kim Ben and Allen.

See you all there, any more offers gratefully received just in case I can't find those who have offered at the vital moment, OR to spread the load a bit.

Thanks

Hi Carol

I should be on T223 from Wednesday, so give me a shout (I'll pm my moby number) when you need a hand.

I notice you are from Kent when you go to Kelling do you use the M11 or A12 cant make up mind which is best way to go :(

Thanks Colin,

I usually follow Sat Nav, which normally goes M25, M11, then A11, then through Brandon A1065, Swaffham, Fakenham, Holt. Many thanks for offering to help. I am hoping I will be a bit more mobile by then (fingers crossed), but don't want to take any unecessary risks even if I am getting better as I know from past experience I have to be careful for a good week after these episodes occur otherwise it "goes" again.

Unfortunately the last time I went to Kelling there were road works on the M25 and I think they might be on-going (widening the motorway), so this held me up quite a bit, but as it was windy and I had a load on the roof rack, I didn't mind too much.

It will get dark around 6:30 and by 7pm you'll not be able to drive onto the field and set up using lights. You'll need to park in the car park overnight and set up in the morning.

I would have thought it would have been ok if it was 100% cloud cover when they arrive Kim....ONLY if it is 100% cloud cover..any chance of a bit of viewing or imaging...then Kim is right.

We're very excited now - just in the middle of loading the caravan up - then tomorrow morning we'll stuff all the astro gear in the boot, hook up the van, and head for Kelling. Looking forward to seeing you all there and thanks to everyone for contributing to this thread.

Wooohooooo :(

Yes - I should have qualified that statement - if it's chucking it down with rain or clouded over then pitching in the dark would be ok.

You'd only need to kip in the car till dawn if the weather is clear overnight :(

I think I've solved this problem by swapping pitches with Ben from Yellow 163 close to car park so I don't need to bring the car in. We'll pitch using red headlights etc...

Sounds like a good idea Perry - If you need a hand just holler over to red 304 and I'll come help you :(

Look forward to seeing you on Tuesday Bob :(

Our time has come. I'm having a quick sandwich and a cuppa. The car and caravan are both loaded. And all that remains is to hook up and head out. So I'll be logging off and going shortly. Safe journeys all and see you at Kelling over the next few days :)

Hi Carole,

I think Sarah and I are next door to you on Red 327. We're hoping to get there about mid day on Thursday.

We'd be more than happy to help if you need a hand. I'm quite good at heavy loads and am used to moving our NEQ6 around. I'm less good at tents (mine have always been crooked :(, but willing to help should anyone competent not be around!!)

Really looking forward to Kelling! Safe journey everyone.

Hi guys, we just bought a pitch at Kelling, my son is so excited!! We are in with the EMS lot, so hopefully we will know a few of you. Is there a map of the pitches available? I did a search but didn't find one. Will be there Fri/Sat/Sun....fingers (and toes) crossed it will be amazingly clear. Looking forward to meeting more of you there, we have a ton of questions with collimation (I messed it up) and imaging...
