Tarryn and I were planning on climbing somewhere and dragging Becky B along. We had thought Dartmoor because then Tarryn's sister may come and play too.

Also, it has become apparent that I'm quite scared of climbing by the sea :)

Only one way to cure yourself of that. . ;)

Just need to convince Alan then :) There are a couple of bunkhouses in Princetown (and I'm sure elsewhere) that we could book. We should probably decide and get it booked soon though if people are up for that.

as everyone else is in agreement, i'll shelve pembroke plans and join the west country express. especially as it involves staying in the bunkhouse next door to a pub! :)

So for the bunkhouse we've got:

Me
Tarryn
Becky B
Alan
Windle
Ali?

If everyone is happy with this I shall book the bunkhouse before it fills up. It is 9.50 a night (or close to that) and attached to a pub. They have a campsite too so if anyone else wants to jump in then that's fine too.

I am in the Devon area that weekend - so I might pop by for a visit,  depending on the weather etc.  I will message someone over the weekend to find out where you are :-)

We were planning on going to Tarryn's sister's but we can go to the bunkhouse if that makes it easier.

Tarryn, Becky and I will all be going from Guildford. Tash and Charlie are staying at Tash's parents so might be best left to their own devices. Ali is in a catergory of his own.

We could all go in one car? I was just waiting to see what Ali said before finalising arrangements.
