We have yet to meet in real life but through this forum I have noticed your progress and occasional difficult patches. I cannot imagine what my life and my attitude would be like in your shoes. I am immensely proud of your having held yourself together and of the help your brother has been. Keep pedaldogging!

Thanks RR.
I modified the OP to reflect the Actual Date, 15th April 2017 is 21 years to the day. I want to celebrate it, I've had a Much Better life than many others with similar injuries.

Not actually a YACF thing, but since there's some overlap, the ALC are going to Hayfield that weekend... http://lightweightcampers.org.uk/hayfield-peak-dist-apr-17/


Keep on keeping on!

Mrs. Wow and I are members of the C & CC.

It just so happens that our wedding anniversary falls on 17th April, as it does every year, curiously enough. This year will be our 41st.

We are very fond of Hayfield, despite Arthur Lowe having lived there. We have stayed in the Lantern Pike Inn (Little Hayfield) on several occasions. This was Mrs. Wow's stomping ground when on family afternoons out as a small child.

Go on, go on, go on!

We will be in Hayfield that weekend, obviously and we'd love to see any other C & CC members out. It's very cheap when we camp as a rally  :D

I suppose that, as an Association of Lightweight Campers, it might be frowned upon if we took a very large tent in a car...

Nothing wrong with using a car.  It's all about the tent.

I am formulating a plan which involves getting a train to Stalybridge, spending a night with Mrs. Wow's sister at the Family Seat and then pottering over the hills via minor roads/sustrans routes. It isn't that far from Stalybridge to Hayfield - probably about 12 miles, says he without actually plotting a route.

Not a Member, yet. Is it extra cost for the ALC bit? I assume I'd need to be a paid up member for the Hayfield meet, I might be able to find the joining fee in a few weeks so watch this space.

ALC is an extra £6. You're allowed to join a meet if you are a C+CC member though.
I'd need to know in advance if anyone wants to join us as we only have a set amount booked.

Book us in please Rich. This will be Jan's first small tent venture since our ill-(midge)fated trip to Mull 3 years ago. However, if she finds it utterly intolerable she has a sister 13 bike miles away with a perfectly decent bungalow to escape to! We are C & CC members. Quite happy to pay the extra £6 for the ALC element.

Put me down too.  Not sure about barakta, as she isn't really rated for lightweight tents, but she has a mother about 6 miles away with a perfectly good bungaloid.  We are members of that there ALC.

Will do  :thumbsup:
You don't need to pay the extra to camp with us but you can join the section if you so wish.
You get a small mag and great rally rates at all our meets.
The fee for this meet is only £8 per tent per night.

We have a meet booked most months this year, have a look at lightweightcampers.org.uk to see the list.
Hampshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Somerset, Oxfordshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Kent to name a few  ;D ;D

Put me down too. 

Will do also  :thumbsup:

I just spoke to Jan's sister about potentially using her bungalow as a bolt hole, but she won't be there - she has decided to join us camping in Hayfield!

This should be very amusing...

Edit: hey, Pedaldog, sorry to hijack your thread like this, but I definitely think you ought to be there now!  :thumbsup:

No worries. I'm going to know if I can make it by the end of Monday. Hoping I can.

That weekend we will be returning from a short restorative in Normandy. Enjoy your camping expedition.

BTW that is Easter w/e, don't assume transport links and roads will be 'normal'!

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

It is looking quite possible that Jan and I will be having a preliminary night at Hardwick Hall, for historical research purposes.  ::-)

Our plans are currently in a state of flux. Jan has had a rotten cold for over a week and her asthma is playing her up, especially when horizontal. Subjecting herself to a cold, clammy tent does not seem to be especially wise. I think there will be a representation from our party, but whether it ends up being just me is yet to be decided.

Hope Jan feels better soon xxx
