In a crowd of 1500 people and their cars and tents, when the patches are so small? Good luck to everyone!

 

Has anyone got a flag or banner that will be visible from the rest of the camp area?

Can't wait! But on another note, does anyone have any experience with WE G39's? I keep trying to load mine up with gas, but I get 5 rounds off and it's dead with no gas.

Ref maps, I'll probably get an OS map of the area, will make things much easier. Will just have to pen details onto it from the maps provided.

Skype on Monday sounds good to me.

Do you know what number map it is? I'll have a look in my local bookshop tomorrow.

found an OS Landranger map of the area today, but at 1:50,000 it'd be next to useless, I'll have to just settle for the maps that are provided.

I'm ready for Skype as soon as anyone else is. And yeah I found that map and came to the same conclusion!

I'm available to skype pretty much any late evening for a week or so.

 

Re numbers - I've got 6 phone numbers plus me = 7

 

re what are we sleeping in? Depends how cold it turns out to be, but I'm hoping it's warm enough to be down to my pants - just in case I need to leap out of my tent straight from sleep! Do you mean sleeping bags vs blankets/duvets, or what sort of sleeping bag/sleep system? I'll have 2 cheap sleeping bags that together add up to warm enough for almost anything the UK can throw at us and 2 cheap mats that, again together, do the job of a more expensive one. I'm dithering over buying a Falklands Issue cold weather sleeping bag liner as well, but I probably won't because of the added weight to carry.

Also available to Skype pretty much whenever (apart from this Sat as I'm airsofting).

 

Think there are 13 of us, which isn't too bad.

 

I'm taking a caravan :L, not sure on the sensibility of it though..

Yeah 13 would make a tidy squad.

 

I doubt a caravan would mind being taken but as for whether it's a sensible idea, regardless of its sensibilities, I spose it depends how good you are at reversing with it attached to your vehicle, because you wouldn't want to be crap at it if the ground turns out to be bumpy or muddy, eh?

I know you're allowed them there, and my mate's driving. To be honest, I'm not sure his car can actually pull the caravan.. We could end up needing some help leaving :L

I too can do skype any night this week except tonight and saturday, sleeping wise I'm a bit of a lazy camper and I'll be bringing an air mattress plus duvet/sheets. It's august, how cold can it get? (backup sleeping bag in the boot of car).

Hmmm, just thought of a really important question for the veterans - what are the drinking water arrangements?

Hi all

 

We are still taking a caravan but not hopefully have a truck to pull it so we will be sorted,

 

We are also going to be taking a generator if we have the truck so will have power if anyone wants to take a battery charger or anything?

 

We can provide power for our team anyway :)

Thought you were getting a towbar for your car instead of using the truck?
