    Got my MRI scan end of April beginning of May, so I should have some idea whats happening by the end of May. Camping and crutches don't go well.
     
  3. Hello.  Osprey.  There is a B&B/hotel JUST up the road and I am sure several others in the village.  I will certainly act as taxi service should you decide to come.  We will get you there buddy if you can get to Woodhall Spa.  If I can help in any other way PLEASE let me know.  We would LOVE to have you there.

    I feel certain Graeme has booked.  That makes 4.  IF smokewood has ; that makes 5.  Also you know Steve we fed MANY "on lookers".

    I'll tell ya guys; I wish we could tighten this up and get some numbers but I don't see how.  No one will commit,  So far we have 4 maybe 5.  I can't get a discount for 5 pitches in a peak period.  How do we know how much to cook??

    I gotta tell ya I am starting to lose heart.  Yes, I love the fact of us getting together and sharing knowledge and skills but who is going to show up?  I have a spreadsheet of members from the U.K..   There are 50 SMF members from the U.K. who have not joined the Group.  MANY U.K. members join the Group and are never heard from again..  Of the folks who have joined the Group 95% of those are not active ( UK members ).  

    There are 5-6 of us keeping the Group going and I'm not holding up my end.  I hope to change that!  I will start to post more Q-View.

    Well there are the facts.  I don't know why we struggle on?  I guess I am too stupid to give up!

    As said hopefully know more soon, then I can decide. Why do we struggle on ? The passion , or obsession, to create a fantastic meal.

    keep with us Danny, use the smoke !!!
     
  6. [​IMG]   YES that is why.  Because we care.  Thanks Dave.  As have been pointed out I need to watch my BIG mouth.  I just get frustrated.  We have the skill base but no participation.

    I hope you can make the weekend.  I will help in any way I can; just let me know what ya need.  Keep Smokin!

    I'm fairly certain I will be in Montana during that weekend. If I am in England I'll drive up for the day for sure.

    Hi Ewan

    There will be lots of tents there so don't worry about that. I have actually booked one of the Pods. The site isn't as big as it looks on the map and we will all be scattered around it so don't worry about the location of your pitch . You will be able to get anywhere on the site within a two minute walk.

    Anyway, the further you are away from Danny's caravan the less likely you are to be kept awake by his snoring [​IMG]

  15. OK cool. Checked the tent availability for that weekend and most of the pitches are available!? Would have thought it would be mostly booked up by now, especially being the summer hols.

    Hi Ewan, looking at the plan, most are in pitches 83-88, tenting area opposite. If you phone and tell them your with the Smokers Weekend they will sort you out.

  17. Hi Ewan.  The truth is we would not allow Wade to be any where near us!  We banished him to the other side of the campsite.  You know; the big head and all!  Last year I taught him to boil water! [​IMG]

    Serious now!  My friend Wade knows his stuff and if he tells you the sun is shining at midnight; you better go check!  We don't always agree but we get to the same place in the end.  More than one way to smoke a cat!  [​IMG]   We would love to have you there!  As SM pointed out if you let them know you are with our Group they should help you get a pitch near us.  The 80's is where most of us will be but as Wade said it is only a minute or 2 walk from the other side of the campsite.  Hope to see you there.  Keep Smokin!
