Kielder in Spring

Recommended Posts

Who is going to go along to Kielder in March then? The dates are the 16th to the 18th. I think I might give the SGL one a miss as this is a LOT closer to me!

This posting seems to have gone quiet! Is everybody going to the SGL Star party? Its just a bit tooooooo far for me. About an 8-10hr journey each way.

Anyways I am just about to book a couple of pitches for the Friday and Saturday and wondered if there was any way of us all getting pitches beside each other?

Lo Craig

If You want a Pitch with power they are going like hot cakes but if you don't there's plenty of pitches on the bottom field closer to the pub :shock:

I was having a small email debate with gary (Who is taking the bookings) and initially said I would like power but he has said that all the SGL bods like to get a bit closer to nature and go wothout power. So I guess I need to get a power tank then! Power would have suited better but it will be good to meet up again and hopefully get some observing this time!

Think I will also be going :D

From someone who hasnt been before: Is "camping" in your car allowed? Do you think I'd then need hard standing? i.e. how soggy can it get? lol

I don't need electric hookup (I'll try to get hold of extra batteries for the lappy just in case I need to refer to starry night)

I've mailed Gary anyway and got the nod from my missus too :p

Cheers

Paul

Lo Paul

Camping in Your car is not a problem as long as your used to it, as far as soggy goes I think everyone parks just off the track anyway. :D

I've often thought about coming along to one of these occasions. Never got round to it though.

Go on........someone sell it to me.

Why should i want to come along? (The camping aspect really appeals. Been years.)

Lo Andy

Well mate you would be in the company of like minded people who are only too willing to help with a variety of experience.

Plus you get to meet people from here. If that doesn't sell it I don't know what will.

Well maybee fantastic real ale in the Anglers Arms. :D See You there mate :p

I've been given spousal permission (my two year old daughter has said I can go too) so I'd be a fool to not use the "weekend pass" to attend so have booked to do so! :D Its going to be my first star party and I'll be driving up from Taunton so I'll be the one walking around looking more than a little spaced. I'm told the skies are seriously dark at Kielder so hopefully the skies will be clear and the weather not too bad although I've camped in pretty grim circumstances before.

A couple of posts back I see reference to real ale andd a pub? Are they nearby? :p
