Twitey's camping break - May 9th through 13th, 2024
« on: 31 January, 2024, 12:08:50 pm »
We are going with a couple of friends so thought that I'd put it out there just in case anybody else fancies turning up at any point during our stay.

We will not be cycling but don't let that stop you. 

We will not be organising any events, outings, meals, etc., just relaxing.

We will be happy to see friendly faces should you be so inclined.

For those not familiar with Twiteys take a look at the website.  If you are alone but fancy coming along, try to buddy up with others and share a pitch.  There will be four of us (3 tents) and a gazebo on our pitch so sorry but we have no extra space.

I know that they will accommodate parties with adjacent pitches if that is important to you.  The site is not impossibly though. I can enquire if there is demand ...

The firepit makes for a great evening social gathering space as the daylight fades.  Always good to have a seat around the fire ...

Aside from a nice weekend with friends the primary reason for the trip is a kit shakedown before our longer break in June so we will not be taking the big inflatable tent, rather the Hilleberg Keron 4GT and the 3m x 3m "mess tent" gazebo which will also provide a place for me to shelter from the sun.

That's it.  Now it's up to you.

I keep thinking "That sounds fun!" when I see these things, then I go see where it is and realise how long it would take to get there.

Best thing about Twiteys is unlike many places, you don't end up camping in a car park, so you can watch the sunset around the 🔥

Yes, that is a Good Thing.

I will express a tentative interest but much depends on Dez's and Jan's health.

We'll be heading towards Orkney in June all being well.  Any closer?  🙂

Living only about 3 miles as the crow flies, and about 5 by road it would seem rude not to tootle over for a chat.

... and some trivia, when Michael Twite (as in Twitey) was running his landscaping business he did some work at out previous house in SuA.

That's Apollo's birthday weekend so I'm guessing that you will already have other plans.

Just a wee bump in case folks might be interested.  I'm quite looking forward to a day out to Warwick and the wonderful Hill Close Gardens.

I should be there.   Do we need to start thinking about a group pitch booking ?  Who else is in ?

Our pitch is already as full as I would like with mllePB and two other friends.  3 tents and our "mess tent", a Coleman gazebo.  If there is just one more we could just about squeeze you in but more than 1, definitely not.

I can't commit to anything until the orthopods get a chance to meditate on barakta's x-rays in a couple of weeks time.

A "pitch" sleeping 8 for the 5 nights 9th to 14th works out at £114.   Who's in ?

Ooh, could be. The nannies are planning something but I think that is the week before.

I'm hoping to get there for a night or two - most likely 9th/10th or 10th/11th.  Depending on other commitments, it might just be for the one night - the 10th. Just one bike and a 2 man "backpacking" tent.

Hmm. This sounds interesting.

Sadly, I don't have to worry about Dez's health any more, but it depends whether Jan will feel able to cope with a weekend on he own. She won't/can't camp.

It’s a thought. The issues are to do with cold amp air and asthma, and being able to get up at bladder o’clock.
