I am camping at the Bull, presumably car sharing with Mark. Looking forward to it
Madge sharing (Delphine) actually!
Looking forward to seeing you all as ever... Shame you can't make it Tony and Jean, You'll be sorely missed along with your prints.
Well then you lot - I guess that's it then. Just four or five of us on our lonesome. I must say what ever happened to the rest of 'em?
I suppose that no-one is up for leading the photo ops in the area. I guess its up to who's left to work it out then. All suggestions welcome - but if I'm on my own then so be it...
I'll start looking at the guide books then.
Would have loved to have attended Mark but I've got a 75th Anniversary Club Dinner that weekend in Somerset. The Peak District is a great location but the weather can be difficult. Having said that, some years ago I did a three day walk around the Peak in mid October and the weather was the best I had ever experienced there.
Wishing you all a great weekend.
Positive thinking, Mark... We like that ! Lol

Stuart could elaborate I'm sure in great lenght on the subject of toilet rolls.
I am going to get a guide book too and ask around to people who have visited the area at the office. May be, it is the excuse to meet up before, to go through the guides together and chew some fat?
Happy day to all

I have Dave Dutchers book - Peak Light
Dave, lives in the Peak District and the book is dedicated to photos of the Peak District
He has even been thoughtful enough to put the locations of his photographs in the book - as a guide for others.
I was waiting for suggestions from other APUgers as to photographic locations but failing that we can always Daves book as a suggested starting point
Should we start a new thread asking for recommended photographic locations?
Delphine - You will be surrounded by rocks, no need for a hammer to drive in tent pegs.
As for TP, I thought you said you were a lightweight camper - Surely you know about single sheet usage :o
Lol ... Let's get this right, I said that I was equiped with lightweight gear, I never said that I was a lightweight camper ;-)
I may be tempted to put in an appearance for at least one night - depends whether I've used up all my domestic credit!
Unfortunately I won't be in a position to decide until the week before!
If you're looking for a good location, try Padley Gorge, near Grindleford rail station - a really lovely 'hidden' valley. There's also an old millstone quarry at the top, full of dumped millstones among silver birch trees- beautiful.
It's rather well known Rob
Been extensively photographed
