If you are going away somewhere and don't mind meeting up with other Bongo owners or if you've been somewhere & want to tell us about it & stick up your photos, put the details here.

Trish - Postcode for the campsite is WS15 2UA although that's not entirely accurate, use 52.745157, -2.000030 in your SatNag if you're using one.

Hi to all
Been a few years since I went to Tackeroo, am I right there is a cold tap and an Elson drop.
Thanks
Trish

Hi Trish, yes - that's about the sum total of the facilities so you need to be pretty much self-sufficient.

Wifey and me will probably make this one (subject to about 30 caveats)! Looking forward to Ian G.

Who is going and when?
We have a newish member who is thinking of going on Friday if there will anyone else there, if not then he will just come for the Saturday night.

We'll only be there for the Saturday night, Muppet has things to do on Friday and then she's swimming on Sunday. Probably arrive midday Saturday and have to be away by about 11 on Sunday.

Muz Jr is planning to attend also, even though he's now officially a southern softie he fancies roughing it with the old crowd :D

I'll be there on the Friday. Spending 2 nights at Ashbourne CCC to top up the LB and have a shower or two (Wed and Thu) after my leisurely drive down from Silverdale, over Bowland and the Peak District. Hoping to wild it or use Britstops in between. :wink:

Another good weekend at Cannock Chase for the die-hards who made it to this, it’s a very basic site but in a beautiful part of the country plus there are a lot of bike trails for the fitness freaks amongst you (I noted it was only Muz Jr who bought a bike with him :roll: )

But the weather was good for the time of year, rather better than the previous weekend at Silverdale :lol: A few photos from us...

If you go down to the woods today...

Image
...you’re sure of a big surprise...

Image
...because once Muz lights the barbecue, nothing is safe :twisted:

Image
Muzette chilling – I didn’t really set her on fire :wink:

Image
You can’t really beat this for the last weekend of October :wink:

Image
It’s just the camera angle, Muz Jr hasn’t really just dropped his strides :roll:

Image
A hive of industrious activity...

Image
...as several pumpkins are carved

Image
Meanwhile, Jr is ready to go off on the infamous Follow-the-Dog and Monkey Trails

Image
Partners in crime – The Sausage-Monsters!

Image
More pumpkin creativity

Image
Muzette’s new best friend, a CockaPoo called Pickles :roll:

Image
The result of a lot of hard work...

Image
...which really looked the part given the surroundings

Image
Beer, wine & burnt sausages...

Image
...what more could you ask for!

Excellent photos as always Paul. It was a really good meet.
