1) Tom
2) cragcrawler (Fiona)
3) possibly Daz
4) anyone else?

Go on, skip work, you know you want to

<font color='#000080'>Put me down as a maybe. I've go wait til monday for my timetable!

If it means missing one or two lectures, I can manage it.

Can someone show me the way to something other than the tunnel bit? I found that by accident, we only went for a pootle! Isn't there a boat in there? Don't mind a play on that, and anything else worth visiting.

11 sounds grand Tom. Just my kind of hour for diving.

psstt...  I have snuck a "me on holiday" into the work calendar for the 30th so looks promising.  

As for seeing the sites!  You name it I'll show it.  Hey I can even get from the end of the tunnel to the boat, via the fridge and kettle (Yes really!) if you want.

Things to see...

Block house - 10 ish
Boat 25m ish
Tunnel 14m down to 25m
Upturned car
Industrial washing machine
Bikes
and of course the fridge and kettle (Same bastard has already nicked the beer from the fridge though

I may have to put a holiday form in, unless I can arrange a meeting in Bath if you know what I mean..  Last time I only looked into that tunnel...  Nasty dark / cold place

<font color='#000080'>Stick me down as definite. I'm there. Maybe it was Daz selling it to me, or the viz in the sea at the moment!

I think I might have seen the blockhouse, and the end of the tunnel at 25, but I didn't go in as I didn't know where it came out and was with a mate who didn't have a torch.

Hey...  barring war, famine or plague,  I'm a definite.

Actually I'm struggling to think of a reason that would stop me?

It's a cold dark manky puddle in the middle of nowhere - will that do? Note that I've never been there, so I may be making an unfair assumption here...

1) Tom
2) cragcrawler (Fiona)
3) Sean
4) Sean's mate Pete
5) Digger
6) Daz, as long as the other three horsemen of the Apocalypse don't turn up
7) anyone else?

Got room for one more on this?
The idea of the wet, muddy and very cold puddle is too tempting.

So that'll be:

1) Tom
2) cragcrawler (Fiona)
3) Sean
4) Sean's mate Pete
5) Digger
6) Daz
7) Richie wants some of that mud
8) anyone else?

Prob. a good idea if a few of us swap mobile numbers before friday, just in case we can't find eachother among the massive crowds that will be thronging the site (or more likely can't see eachother through the blizzards).

Just bumping this in case anyone else fancies getting very cold on friday. I think the plan is to meet at 11 (does anyone want to suggest a specific place to meet, or shall we all just try to find eachother by phone? Doubt if there'll be huge crowds anyway...). I'll be in a blue vauxhall corsa P302 OAG by the way and I think I've PMd everone my mobile no.


1) Tom
2) Sean
3) Sean's mate Pete
4) Digger
5) Daz
6) Richie
7) anyone else?
