Just spoken to NOS4R2 he isnt going,
Weather doesn't look good, BBC site looks more optomistic than most, however I dont fancy driving all the way down to sit in the rain all day.
then another 150 mile drive home in a leaky wet landrover

well touch wood, every searider gathering has had really good weather!

There does seem to be a pattern emerging the last 5 or so years for nice octobers and grotty augusts, is it my imagination or has anyone else noticed?

Damn shame aboutthe weather-just too much for overnighting.

I'm thinking the same sort of thing as the year before last with the campsite for the Searider gathering?
