I’m just wondering about what gear to bring. So far I have. Telescope, deck chair, Pimms and sun block.

I don’t think you’ll need any of those with the possible exception of the Pimms :icon_biggrin:

If Mapstar attends, make sure you hide any pies you may have taken with you - they won’t last long ?

Arrived at half 3 after everyone else. Old Nick and the rest in good spirits despite the poor weather outlook.

Had some clear skies this aft and Kerry did a bit of planet hunting.

Pod is cosy wish they had these up Galloway.

Good job Calvin didn't come it's 50p for the showers :eek:

Yes. We’ve seen our near neighbours at least: Sun, Venus and Mercury. The prospect of going further looks doubtful .

Ha ha yeah glamping at it's best :icon_biggrin:.

Didn't want to have to pack away a wet tent then dry it for the galloway trip.

On a more serious note I'm thinking of packing up today and heading to Galloway early if the weather looks good for tomorrow night and Monday. First quarter next weekend.

I am officially turned soft. Kerry has decided to head for home. So i’ve inherited his pod. Double bed, duvet, heater, beer fridge. He even had candles by the bed!!! The world has gone mad!

Sausages nearly cooked. Snow stopping. I’ll be digging out the Solar gear in a minute???

The sun's just come out here, about four or five miles away!

Would the proprietors object to someone popping over for an hour to say hello to fellow SGLRs later?
