Yes. I am hoping to get there next weekend, for a bit extra. We may depend upon the weather for stars but not for relaxation. Hope to see everybody soonest and that we all get some clear skies.

Galloway is worth the trip not only for the skies but for the friendly atmosphere.

Yes definitely looking forwards to the pie and peas night, obviously interspersed with the amber nectar.

See you all there!

Phewww. I was getting worried that all the clear skies would be used up before i got there. I know that there are a few here that do not have the constraints that the rest of us have, and are able to spend extended time away - not jealous at all :lipsrsealed:

Good advice Kenny. We all need earplugs and blinkers whilst at home in the presence of  SWMBO.

Hi,

The clear skies ritual consists of drinking loads of malt whiskey, eating a freshly caught haggis, drawn and quartered in the Burns tradition.

This occurs on the first rainy night of the star party, so us early arrivees will postpone this event until you latees arrive!!!

Anyway, we will be there to watch the tent erecting ceremonies. Great fun in the dark and the rain, I helped erect three tents in September.

Not long now....

Cheers

Adrian

Hang on there Kenny.....

We have to draw a line somewhere!

You will be suggesting ironing or washing the loo next.

Better keep that one quiet.

Hi Adrian

We will be getting down next Saturday so you should miss out on the fun erecting the tent again, this time it can go up in daylight and hopefully no rain.

Hi Jim,

I hope to arrive Sunday after lunch, so you can help erecting my tent, with the setting sun in the background.

Have a safe trip.

Cheers

Adrian
