17th - 19th August 2012
Peter - plan is to stay at the Bothy Friday night as some of us may arrive late and it's an easy option, but we will be camping high level on Saturday night, be great to meet you!
Peter - rough plan for weekend as follows:
Stay Mosedale Cottage Friday night. On Saturday morning, get up bright and lively and go back up to the pass, up onto the ridge (Adam Seat, Knowe, Kentmere Pike, etc down to Kentmere). Then across and up the otherside and hopefully get up to Thornthwaite Crag (camp there). Sunday, we'll head off up High Street and eventually come back to Haweswater.....
ok not sure what im up to yet but if i can will try and get there will be with my faithfull choco lab
Only 3 days to go..... whoo hoo.........quick check on attendees:-
As much as I want to join you, I am going to have to give it a miss.
See you at Brecon Beacons meet
I will be there if i dont get blown off the hills on me friday walk
Well... it's time I started looking at the weather forecast...
Friday... rain all day and all night...
Saturday... cloudy, but no rain, all day and all night...
Sunday... a glimmer of sunshine and maybe a bit of rain when it's all over.
That leaves me still undecided!
I'm in the same situation...
Mind you... the proposed Saturday night pitch... I once camped up there when there was snow on the ground and cloud that never lifted. At least it didn't rain!
Peter... when I camped up there, it was on the big, open slopes south of High Street, between Thornthwaite Crag and Mardale Ill Bell.
I'm certainly keeping an eye on the weather forecast. Getting to and from that area is interesting by bus, requiring long walk-ins from all directions. Getting away on a Sunday by bus requires an even longer walk-out!
A straight-forward run back on the Sunday might be welcome. But first... let's see if both of us actually turn up for the weekend!
Forecasting nightmare for this week-end as it happens. One thing to note, windy on saturday on the tops. Would hate to make a call now for conditions after checking the various models...
