Devon Trip - 4/5 August


#102

Nice one Matt, amazing effort you’ve put in! So glad the weather is going to be perfect for it.


#103

If anyone who is a) going on the Devon meet, and b)will be at Mile End on Wednesday and c) has a set of sport quick draws they don’t mind lending…could I borrow said quick draws?

@tutu and myself only have one set between us and that will make working projects at Portland on Friday a pain.

They will be delivered back safely on Friday evening.


#104

I can lend you some barely used sports draws. Main thing will be to encourage me not to forget them on Wednesday.


#105

Cool. Once I’ve used them you can sell them on eBay for extra £££


#106

Well remembered. The unused draw did finally sell once I labelled it used on eBay! Who knew?


#107

The Prince William looks excellent. Thanks Matt.


#108

This trip is looking great :grinning: Nice one Matt and Jo.


#109

The guidebook author (Kafoozalem) had a post on UKC earlier about the state of play of the magical mystery tour exit post rockfall, if anyone has that on their todo.

I think we are going for the bank holiday, so would be interested in a report on the campsite as it looks to avoid the carnage of the roads down to Berry Head…

You are very welcome @Max_A :smiley: can’t wait!


#111

@hughmerritt, @Mark_W; does 6.30 at Oakwood tube work for you Friday evening?


#112

@Peter Cheers, that works for me!


#113

Good for me.


#114

Great 6.30pm at Oakwood it is @hughmerritt & @Mark_W. @dabarlow & I will meet you there. My mobile number is 07398718422, Mark can you give me yours?


#115

Hello all, is it too late to join in?! Any spare spots left at the campsite? I’m hoping to drive down from Angel late tomorrow, if anyone wants a lift… Though I am still trying to convince @Kate_Davis to join!


#116

Morning. My younger son Jules is ill with fever and my wife Caroline and I are worried about him. I am going to pull out of this climbing trip to stay home and look after Jules this weekend. @Miguel_Aguirre and @Max_A you will need to find a lift. Sorry to let you down at short notice.
Toby


#117

Very sorry to hear that Toby. I really hope he’s better soon for you.

@Tim, you’re timing is spot on so not too late to join. Can you take @Miguel_Aguirre and @Max_A?

Imelda and I are leaving at 10am to meet my parents, who will also be staying with us: hooray! But we’ll not be coming directly back to London so can’t help with the return. JT and Laura are in a similar situation. Does anyone else have spare spaces?


#118

Who wants a prize?

Check out my post from last night: Belaying Safely. The Petzl page has a belaying no-no on it. There’s a free prize, to be awarded this weekend, to the first person to spot the error.


#119

Wishing Jules a speedy recovery, and sorry you’re missing out Toby. Let’s see that lifts materialise.
Tim - what time would you be looking to get away please?


#120

OK - I’ll play. that lass in the black t-shirt is using her thumb to hold down the cam.


#121

Is that wrong? Anyway, it wasn’t what I spotted and that’s how you get the prize! Correct to be looking at the pictures though. :wink:
