Heading for this campsite Friday night.

http://baysbrownfarmcampsite.co.uk/index.html

It does state no groups on the website and I'm wary to phone them to ask the group question. I've previously contacted another site and they point blank refused, so we are all on our own for finding a place to camp Friday night. If I can't get in the above ill be heading for the great langdale national trust site.

http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/holiday ... -langdale/

If they won't let me camp then ill probably head back towards wainwrights inn near bays brown farm campsite (see the map on the campsite). Ill hang around there until approx 1930 and if anyone else has found a site come and let me know. My backup then is to point my bike up the closest mountain, get as far up as I can and then wild camp.

Saturday. Those that are trail riding, think there approx 6 of us. Meet at wainwrights inn. Or somewhere close and visible. We will be riding from here at 0830.

The crossing for piel is from snab point. We will be leaving here at 13:30. Don't be late. We will be guided across by a 4x4 from the island. No one is to cross without the guide. Ill probably ride out a hundred meters and park up to help anyone that needs picking up.

See you all there.
I'm getting a bit twitchy about this and though I'm not down to go I'm more and more tempted. I need to check when my wife comes back from the TT and if it's not until Sunday am I ok to just pitch up for the crossing on Saturday?

It's only about 4 hours from Bedford so I can do it easily and I can throw a tent on the bike when I get home Friday evening.

Not sure. Ill call the pub tonight and ask. But incase I can't get an answer I'd urge all to take what you need to survive for 24 hours. It's an island after all and there isn't a local Asda on the island.

There is a basic toilet and tap etc etc so waters not a problem. And a pub which serve meals........but with so many coming getting a table may be a concern. Remember its a small island, with a smallish pub. I doubt they get large numbers visiting at a single time. Just be aware of this. So ill reiterate, I'd recommend all being self sufficient. Any extras on the island, take as a benefit.

We should be back on the mainland midday Sunday.

I would have hooked up with you but it's going to be a bit early for me, not leaving Stevenage until about 1.00 but that is dependent on what time I actually get out of work.

Don't worry Tony, I'm sure we will all be wrapped up in the pub.
