Just saw this. I'll translate into Layman's Terms for you:

Bruce what is your plans over and back in a day or staying over night? If staying over night camping or b&b?

Jon,
we are staying the night before in Whithorn and coming back that night as it is only about an hour across. It should be easy with reasonable weather to have a full day and be back at a reasonable hour and back up the road to put everything to bed nice and washed down before going back to work monday.
I will be looking at booking very shortly as it getting near enough that we should be starting to do detailed planning.
We will be B&B in whithorn

Don't worry, I'm with you. I've been away on a few trips of a similar nature myself. It must've been rough to require a hard hat though.

Sounds like a good plan to me, i just need to decide whether to drive down to whithorn early in the morning or stay down there. Let me know when you are booking b&b and i will look into it.

Easy peasy. Broadcast your intention to make a Large Deposit and they'll turn on the landing lights for you.

Leave us a few Wets, pls.
