Cumbria Star Party 4 - Nov 18th & 19th


Recommended Posts

Netweather.tv is reasonable Andy.

Sorry to hear Sandra is unwell, please extend my best wishes.

Clear skies not guaranteed, but if you sacrifice young children to Sol Invictus (Roman Sun God) he may smile on you and give good weather. On second thoughts, I believe the Romans used chickens and their Empire did pretty well for 400 years or so. So go for the chicken entrails - it keeps you out of Jail.

Tom

Bring LOTS of cakes - I will put the calorie controlled diet and get fit regime aside for the weekend in honour of your humungous cakes : ))

Hi Steve,

If I am sober I will help with your nocturnal tent erecting endeavours.

Put some of the curry aside for me : )

Single Malt waiting to be loaded into the car - first thing after the astro kit and tent/sleeping bag.

Isle of jura eh! I considered that myself but was beguiled by the Glenmorangie. Still, a good choice and I will be at your shoulder for a wee taste (or two).

I will arrive early afternoon on Friday and try to coral Adrian and Mike to assist with my tent erection. then I will slump in my camp chair, beer in hand and solar scope at the ready. Nina will fan me with fresh Peacock feathers and feed me grapes whilst singing softly too me (You will Nina, wont you?) Okay, maybe your hostess duties don't extend to that. : (

Away now to sacrifice to Sol Invictus and the Longtown cloud nymphs (in best Roman tradition) - it will probably be as successful in getting good weather as anything else.

Regards to all,

Tom

We can't blame David this time Mike - he isn't at CSP4. Good you had a couple of hours clear on your first night. I will keep sacrificing to the cloud nymphs.

"Jane .... Check" Are you sure Terry? Loading

Jane into the car tonight is probably not a good idea. :)

Lentil and Tomato soup simmering gently on the stove. Should be ready about 12.30, then off to bed, up 8am and a quick Gym trip, back for 9.30am and load the car, then shower and brunch.

Will set off 11.00-11.30 and arrive 1.00-2.00pm.

Netweather forecast is 40% cloud at 9pm tomorrow, dropping to 30% at midnight, similar (but slightly better) Saturday night - so we may see some stars.

Sorry you can't make it Mike - see you next time.

No problem Rob! :-)

The skies seem to be clearing so fingers crossed.

Mike says give him a call when you arrive and he'll come and open the gate for you.
