    After much internal wrangling and turmoil, I have decided to take the cowards way out and go for the B&B (horse and farrier) - I know, I'm a coward - but all of a sudden, subzero temps and sleeping with 10 layers of clothes didnt seem an overly attractive option, that ond the fact that I am a southerner, of course.

    this thread has been a bit quiet for a while, and the B&B didnt sound like they are fully booked, so who is actually going? will i be on my own???

    As one soft southerner to another, I quite understand.
    I can reconfirm my wife and I have our room booked. John Neal told me that he had booked the last “double room”, that was on the 27th December. So you could be out with the horses yet Leon.
    Regards Dave.

    I'll be there probably on the Friday and will either be camping or staying in Peter Hogan's luxury mobile home. Can we decide a meeting place and time.

    We will also be arriving on the Friday afternoon. Would the bar of the Horse and Farrier Inn be an acceptable place to meet? Around 6pm in time to plan dinner? Any preferences anyone?
    Regards Dave.

    Sounds good to me, Dave. I've just had my room at the Horse and Farrier confirmed for the Friday and Saturday nights.

    I'm out this time - lack of money. Why don't you all come over here in spring?


    Or autumn:

    I should be up on the Friday: assuming I can get a cottage owner to let me arrive a day early - at the time of year it shouldn't be too difficult (I never book until 2 days beforehand anyway - they are usually very happy to get a booking at such short notice) and will stay the week.

    The suggestions Les made earlier in the thread (Castlerigg followed by Borrowdale (I'm only familar with the twin bridges there) and also Buttermere (I can add to my "The Ash Tree" collection - though at this time of year, the Pines near the Honister Pass end probably make better subjects as the Ash tree will be naked ) sound a very good idea to me.

    On 12/02/05 Apparent Sunrise is at approx 07:30GMT and sunset at 17:15 (obviously, not in the valleys..). No moon to speak of: 4 days after new moon.

    Cheers, Bob.

    P.S. Batten down the hatches tonight (7/Jan/05) - Severe weather warning from the Met office over Scotland, North & E. England - 90MPH winds.

    As a new boy to these things, I'm looking forward to learning from being around the others. Depending when my wife can get off work (she is coming too) we should be there before 8PM, so late for planning dinner, but possibly in time to join in.
    I'm happy to go along with suggestions re subject matter, this is not a part of the Lakes that I know well.
