Leafers in 'T' Lochs.....Friday 4th-Monday 14th July....
« on: April 17, 2014, 07:06:42 pm »
Right folks I have a cunning plan
 "As cunning as a fox who's just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University?"

As some of us have discussed at some of the past events.... I (and some others) have an itch to scratch regarding visiting the lochs and Highlands of the West coast of Scotland.... Wild camping where possible and travelling light.
Thoughts thus far are.....
First day cross the border into the land of the Jockanese... Probably camping at Galloway forest... Ish... Thence off to the Ardnumurchan peninsula to Sanna Bay (crossing an extinct volcano En-route ;-).... Then possibly taking Genem up on his kind offer of camping etc.... Before crossing over to the East Coast and dropping down to Kelso ish so those with S1's can join the S1 rally.

Obviously details are in a state of flux ATM but basically a week (with a long weekend either side of it so Friday till a week on Monday) of solid touring/travelling light/wild camping Road tripNess in some of THE most beautiful scenery in the British Isles.

Just trying to gauge interest ATM.

Being that it was your good self that planted the seed Toby....
 I blame you AND call you out.....
Dates are  negotiable... Though mindful of  those that have to work around school hols etc AND potentially the S1 rally at Kelso.

I'd love to do this!

Need some dates so I can see what's happening at work.  I'm getting flown to Munich in a few weeks!

But I had holiday booked before the  "thistle do" and I changed it to after the show because LRSOC were organising routes and time exploring Scotland after the show.  Now you offer me something before the show.  What is a man supposed to do?

Would have loved this but it's Chelsea 21 birthday end of June and we are going to Liverpool. Maybe another time this trip will happen.

Dates ARE negotiable....
Only real fixed things are school holidays AND the S1 rally.... To work around THOUGH some folks will obviously not be panic stricken if they cant visit the s1 rally ...

Main thing is a date that works for the bulk of folks ...we can manage pretty much any time  Celbrt
