Default Re: The Last word (AE07)

At request of a few folks with concerns I have just called the campsite to enquire about the state of the field. The lady, she say (I'm parapharasing BTW)....

The field has drainage (being a camping field) but obviously this is limited. The field WILL be wet/damp at least by the time we get there!! In her words "obviously we can't help it if it's raining"... I don't think she understood my point, but ho hum.

BRING SIDE STAND PUCKS!!!

However, should anyone forget, she's also said that there is a carpark we can make use of. I'm not sure of the size of the carpark, so I wouldn't advise that everyone assumes they'll be able to fit in here!! The car park I suspect will be "farmers tarmac" (gravel on top of mud more likely - if this is the case, the bikes still may dig in!!).

HTH.

The carpark is not big but it will hold quite a few bikes, however we will have to be careful due to ramblers being at the site as well!

Plus any cars said ramblers have brought along too.

If I remember right, we're in the spare field and one of the BBQ's is booked up, so I'm expecting a fairly full campsite.

I have a cunning plan to prevent bikes falling over as a last ditch solution, but I'm not disclosing it yet because I really don't want things to come to that.
