Definitely keeping an eye. End of September looking more likely, but trying to confirm some dates that are out of my control.

Sadly after checking that the journey time is going to be 7 hours for me to get to the camp site, I have to back out.

Looks like it will be awesome, so am gutted to miss out. I'll just have to look forward to the photos.

Not the same without you.
We will have to do another meet on the south coast in the near future.
