Annoyingly I have a long-planned appointment with a paramotor and wing up on Salisbury Plain so can't be there year. Gutted to be missing it but confident you'll all do the comfy clifftop and caves proud. I trust the grand tradition will continue and there'll be decent pics of burnt sausages and melted tapes..

As it turns out, right now I could get a ticket to Europe/the UK for more or less the same price of most plane tickets on most airlines, though during summer it skyrockets up with any airline. In 2016 I didn't really have the money though I made sure to save what I could/scrape together some extra cash to make it happen. I'd certainly like to see BTYK/fujee and everyone I never got a chance to meet.

I suppose circumstances are similar. If Cupz could be convinced to go now, I'd have a good four months notice which would provide more than enough time to save up another lightweight, coach/hostels only trip. Though that cash could go to other things as well, so I don't know yet.
Okay...now...wait for fog machine.

Would be great to meet you Jonse, but don't worry too much because I'm sure our paths will cross at some point! Would be good to have a chat and beer by the campfire though, jus' saying ;)

I'd love to come to one of these, sadly I don't know how to tent.

Much respect Mexicola for getting people together x

I work in a school and this is during term-time. Are any of you guys able to stand up straight by the Monday morning?

We don't use tents. All you need is a sleeping bag and a bivvy bag. If it rains we go in the caves.

It's Saturday into Sunday so by Monday you'll be perfectly fine. Unless you're vballs. Vballs is legendary for getting so drunk he usually wakes up with a chalk line drawn around him ;-)

If you want to know more, message me.
