    GFG Hope you're doing something fun

    I haven't sent any bills out yet, so the barn is booked but the attendees are all provisional (including me if I don't book the time off work soon ).

    The provisional list is:
    1. Milly me with food & whisky
    2. Maria with stove & coal & maps & plans
    3. G wumpy with assorted tiny stoves & whiskies & a big GPS
    4. That Blonde Woman, perhaps with her dressing up box?
    5. AT, with That Blonde Woman & a good sense of humour
    6. Mini Mal with his Sooty suit and without a dodgy curry
    7. Ninja Marmot with tales of hurricane survival
    8. Bob Marmot, perhaps with a trilby

      and then mebbe
    9. Kate with a gap in her diary, perhaps
    10. Imperial Davey Dux wltc, with permission perhaps
    11. Frank, if Munro doesn't call him
    12. Dave Moseley with a brand new passport


    I'll issue requests for money soon after Black Sail...

    There were lots of free range hens when we were there, I don't recall anywhere obvious to camp but there were fields nearby so maybe thats a possibility

    Watch out for the stove, it is very smokey till it gets going and the top gets really hot. In an attempt to dry out my gloves I managed to melt them!

    Have a good one, I'd love to come up but I have a knee op in a couple of weeks so won't be hill fit in time.

    Cheers

    Thanks MK

    It is fairly minor, a tidy up of a tear in the miniscus, all keyhole surgery and the surgeon we have here is very good. We are up in Scotland visiting Granny at the end of April, so hoping to get out then.

    Assuming I get fit, the weather is kind and there is not too much snow. I'm hoping to do the Grey Corries ridge, finishing up on the CMD arrete and the Ben. It is probably a bit ambitious as it is about 38km from Spean Bridge to Fort William via the ridge, but I am looking at spending a couple of nights wild camping en-route.

    Cheers

    Steve D

    Hope you recover well, Steve

    Dave - everyone in the first 12 counts as definate unless they say otherwise, or neglect to pay up by the deadline...

    ... so I'd better get a bit organised I'll send PMs with payment details by Wednesday this week, and set the deadline as erm, 13th February?

    He may call himself a Badger now, but some of us remember him dressing as a Meerkat in Sequinned Hotpants.

    Think about the tiny gold ones that Kylie wore, add sequins, and you're half-way there

    Actually, t'would be good to get Dave and Nick (and Steph) squeezed into the tiny hut, it'll be like OM circa 2001.

    OMG I'm starting to have flashbacks

    you're scaring me now, NM. I wasn't party to OM 2001, but it sounds, erm, err, squashed?

    Them were the days eh JJ???

    Fun times as I recall.

    Forgot about those damed sequinned hot pants - Kylie's had em back.

    Will keep fingers crossed on the camping front.

    Btw Dave - now you have your passport does that mean you can have a bimble over in North Wales???

    If we get places then my better-half (Soon to be Mrs Badger in September) will be coming along also (her first OM meet).

    Well, either Kamikaze Badger or Mrs Badger can have my place. Having finally consulted my diary, I've discovered I'm going to be washing my socks that weekend.

    Actually I'm already away 2 weekends in March, in Scotland and Snowdonia, so really can't afford the time or the petrol for a jaunt up to the Lakes in between.

    Nothing to do with the fact that I'm worried Maria might burn the place down
