Bollox! I was looking forward to that, now I'll have to drink that cheap shit co op lager myself Jim! ;)

I can still come down for the Saturday for a ride about, anyone else close enough and fancy it?

Just checked local forecast for the next ten days--rain or showers every day, so the campsite is not about to dry out any day soon.

oh bugger, jim im gutted for you mate you and herman and the others go to a lot of effort. I know we are supposed to be 'adventure' bike riders but i draw the line at underwater camping!
It will happen again, dont worry about it. Winter camp again?

Jerry and anyone else who still wants to come out, im up for a ride on the saturday or sunday still, no idea where though, many of the roads around there are shut too. 'rain stops play'

Thanks Dave, its a real shame but lets not give up hope. I'm thinking if the summer does appear or even a short dry spell to get the water levels down, we will be able to set a new date for the SCS and/or the winter camp.

Thanks to all ride out leaders also Herman for hording a wood pile. Lets hope we get to burn it soon ;)

I was looking forward to you lot singing happy birthday :laugh:

That's a real pity especially after all the hard work everyone's put in.
I'm tempted to still make a weekend of it (as SWMBO gave me a pass) and try this campsite near Stonehenge.

near Amesbury, although I've not been able to find out if they're flooded too. They do group booking, campfires and have had bike rallies in the past, might be one to remember.
