Anybody going this autumn?  I'm hoping to get a camping pitch, only ever camped at kielder once before but I now have a 5 man tent, so loads of space for me and Gaz and Martin plus the scopes....

So I take it that its just Gary, Craig and Martin that are going to Kielder
this year ?  Did you's get booked (i.e. is it booked out) ?

Me and James had to move our weekend booking for the Wed & Thursday nights this year as we are at the 'Dark Skye' event on the Isle of Skye on the 25th with the planetarium, it's the first time in years I'll have missed the main day at Kielder. Shame I'll miss it but great to be involved in a public event in it's place.  :)


Last I heard there was still non-electric places left but that was a good few weeks ago.

Yup, looking forward to it. The Skye event sounds great too, Steve.
 
Craig, we'll cope in a tent. I know you and Gaz are a bit soft with all those years of caravaning but Ian and I have camped at Kielder in -10C. Fan heaters are the way to go as well as an extra duvet underneath :)
 
Cheers, Martin
