Hi Folks I have a prior arrangement for the Saturday evening but I would be up for arrivng on the Friday afternoon and going back on the Saturday afternoon.

As I recall there are two camp sites in dent, a bigun and a littleun. I assume you mean the little site on a hill? (that is where I buried my back wheel up to axle trying to get up the hill before the last wild camp, mercifully I was rescued by Ted Magnum and Steve but I had a red face)

Yep - camping
Yep - pub
Yep - full english (all days)
Yep - Greenlaning.

Do we have to book the campsite?

Debz (and Iain) - We met at the HUMM. I tried to get in touch with you through this forum, but I couldn't think of things to say for 8 posts! It will be good to meet up with you again- (probably in damper weather!)

Ps. Our certificates arrived last week - framed and hung over the fireplace now!

I have no prior engagements (no mates?), so will be there.
cheers
Chris in sunny South Africa.

PS. Don't let any of those 4x4 types tell you a car is better than a bike for adventure travel. Having just driven a Landcruiser for 9000km I can unequivocally confirm how much more fun a bike is.
