North Wales Meet

Count me in (assuming 4x4’s can attend?!)

I can vouch for Nant Col Falls Campsite (I was fortunate enough to live and work in that part of the world not so long ago, beautiful setting and a decent Pub in Llanbedr.

The one at Glyn Ceiriog is a great spot also (about 10 mins from where I live now oddly enough). Easy access but not as scenic or rural as Nant Col IMHO.

I'm going there Friday night with the lady friend to check it out.

I'll have a word with the gaffer and see what he says about a load of smelly bikers and 4X4's !

Fingers crossed !

Well, I went down to Nant Col and stayed Friday night.

It pissed down and blew a gale but it didn't deter from the beautiful scenery and a really nice " out of the way" site.

I had a word with the owner and asked him about the chance of 10-15 bikers descending on his site.

He didn't seem overly keen as he's trying to keep the place family orientated but after assurance that we are all well behaved traveler types, he was ok with it as long as we kept the number reasonable.

I'm going to go for late August on this one as I'll be away for most of September.

While I was there, a full range of shower blocks, toilets and other facilities were about 80% completed. They should be done by August I should think.

SOOOOOO !! I'll be collecting names pretty soon as it will need to be booked in the next few weeks I think.

Ta, Ed

Can't make 22/23 August - as it clashes with the West Wales bike show run by our local club. Other wise I'll be there!

Sorry this has been off the radar for a while......

I have a new job which is shift work meaning I have no idea what my weekends off will be in the distant future...

Very very anoying and making things very hard to plan.

I will probably just give 2 weeks notice and just see who can turn up.... watch this space.
