Scottish Campfire Mini Meet

It's time for another Scottish Campfire Mini Meet!

This will be an informal meet with just a few tents, a campfire (with tarp for bad weather protection!), and probably a ride out on the Saturday. We have yet to fine tuned the details but will work this out as we go along.


Friday 19th October - Sunday 21st October


To be decided once we have an idea of numbers but we are looking at a few different campsites towards the south of Scotland which allow campfires!

We may need to buy some dry kindling & firewood (a £ or so each!?!), to get the fire started on both nights!

Look forward to seeing some old faces and meeting new friends,

Beej n Chris

I've also heard from Richard, Jake, DL & Alex so looks like it will be a mix of older faces and new which is great!

Hi Ali,

Hope you had a great trip in europe... where did your bike take you?

And great news about the wood! Yay! :clap:

Can you let me have a rough idea of numbers from your area to help with sorting the location!

Scottish Mini Meet
Looking forward to this, based in Gretna. Been to Berlin, Amsterdam and all over Ireland this year.

Morocco and Italy are two trips planned for next year!

Let's hope we can find a good campsite for this meet, it's getting chilly so a down bag will be a good idea too!

I could be up for this...

Any confirmation of a location yet?

... it sure is... I had to scrape the car yesterday! brrrr... Big sleeping bag and thermals are a must! The campfire will keep us warm though! :clap:

Richard - looking forward to hearing of your travels, both past and future! Ireland is a possible for us next year so would be good to get some tips!

Matt - the choice of location has been narrowed down due to various factors... e.g. one campsites doesn't allow you to bring your own beer! Will let you know the location asap! Hope you can make it!

Not 100% sure if I can make it yet, but would it be classed as cheating if I were to drive up?

The little DR (125) doesn't sound the most appealing for the ride up.

Now thats an easy run down for me after work on the Saturday, will pull out all stops to get there for 1600hrs. Mike hopefully will be there much earlier.
Sounds like a nice place.

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 14:39.
