    for your information guys we have 3 different woodlands on site but the one in the pictures is the driest by far....

    we have approx 20 fields the same size as the main camp field that you can look for your lunch on ;)...

    the site is drying out nicely and i think it was a wise choice to change venues as when Steve and myself went to the old site to collect the equipment today it was touch and go to whether we could get into the main camp with the land-rover as the ground was so wet we were just sinking up to the axles in mud ...

    All looks great, until the snow falls. Can't wait to get there. Bought my new tent today, it's going back in the morning. Too bloody big. I didn't know they made tents in hotel sizes. Geoff:hp-beer:
