I'll be there Jon

Yep, I'll be popping my Kelling cherry too.  I'm on T369, arriving Thursday afternoon with any luck.  I would usually go to Astrocamp in Cwmdu, but it's time to try somewhere new.  Looking forward to

I look forward to meeting everyone.

Which pitch are you on?  I worked it out the other day and I think it's my 13th or 14th Star Party at Kelling Heath :icon_biggrin:

We pottle over from Worcester in our motorhome, stopping for a late cooked breakfast near Peterborough.  We usually leave the house at around 7:30 am, avoid the traffic jams on the M5, M42 and most of the M6 by travelling via Stratford, and Coventry and usually reckon to arrive at Kelling at around lunchtime.  If your going the shortest route (A14 > Oundle > Peterborough > Wisbech > Kings Lynn >Fakenham) watch out for all the forward facing speed cameras (my recollection is that there are 8 or 9 of them) + the new average speed cameras on the Peterborough bypass.

Wow, thanks Michael! I won't be able to leave until around 9.30. I'm using a hire van which I am picking up at 8.00am, so by the time I load it and grab my supplies from the supermarket, it's going to take up a bit more time. The last time I went anywhere in Norfolk, I was a teenager in the halcyon days of chasing after a young lady! Those were the days! Really looking forward to it though. Have a safe trip over ?

We’ve just arrived on the yellow field. The grass is wet but firm and our motorhome has gone on fine. There’s not many puddles either, at least in the yellow field.

Thanks Anne looks like it should be dry enough no sinking motorhome or heavy mounts ?

I'm arriving tomorrow and have a pitch on the yellow field too. I Don't have the number handy. This is my first visit to Kelling, hoping that the weather is at least dry and looking forward to meeting some of you and to making some new Astro friends.

I’ve had a chance to walk around now, the newer bit of the yellow field, the bit behind the toilet block, is a bit muddy in places. Lots of motorhomes and caravans in the red field!

How are you guys managing to get a signal at Kelling, I can't get anything not even a phone signal when I am there, unless I wander around and if lucky find the occasion postage stamp of signal (normally by the water taps) or go to reception and even then their own wifi doesn't work?

I’ve got 4g in the yellow field. It’s improved over the last year and, as long as I don’t hold my phone it works well most of the time if I tether it to my iPad!
