There's no anything near by. Bring as much as you can on Friday. No cash machine near either.

BBQ for me. will bring a small one and meat.

Not much in the way of phone signal either.

Weather looking pretty good at the moment!

News flash!

Looks like Richard was right to question the state of the campsite....

I have been in contact with the owner. It is waterlogged. He has had to cancel loads of people. The pitch we had booked with electric hookup is not useable. I have managed to organise a space of our own in the top field. This does of course mean no hookup... There will be plug points onsite to do any charging we need.

Not ideal but in true Anglo/French style I'm sure we'll make the best of it!

PS. Do you like my gold and carbon fibre username stripe? I've no idea why I've been given it, but hey it looks nice! Apparently it's because I've been selected to test RCGroups PLUS, and "Participation is restricted to a few hundred of our most prolific and trusted users." .... nice!

Ha Ha Hogg! I reckon it's 'cos you made 8000 posts without flaming anyone, posting loads of good stuff, no sneaky hidden business ads and generally being cool.

Re: Electricity, I will be bringing a 1000w inverter with 4 way socket for low power applications like small chargers. Big ole fridge might work on gas with a bit of coaxing.

We are an inventive bunch, so being in the top field and doing our own thing sounds good to me. Towrope added to packing inventory.

Cheers!

Andrew
