My car isn't big enough or new enough really. When are we leaving, friday night. I can meet you guys up in Guildford at Alan's house.

Can I dive in a car on route when you come past Bristol/portishead?

Dave - as an alternative could we sleep on your floor on friday night and then drive in the morning? Its about 2 hours from Bristol to Pembroke.

...Or would people prefer to be closer to the action on Saturday?

Thats alright, might be a bit cramped as Laura will have a few paddling friends there too. So could just head on to Pembroke to get a good start in the morning? Yea second car would make life easier and more comfortable. I texted a few more people about coming today, this morning but no reply as of yet.

Ok less people staying here than I thought so we could stay here. Campsite last time was st petrox, but no pub. Bosherton head has a campsite by a pub I believe.

that campsite works for me...

looks like we'll try and meet about 7ish and stay at dave's if that's ok with everyone? it looks like it'll be 2.5hours to pembroke in the morning so it'd be good if we could have a low-faff start. i'm planning to get food for breakfast and lunch tonight before we leave.

i'd suggest we squeeze into one car from gford to dave's and then put someone/stuff in twindle's car for the drive to pembroke. i don't mind which car we take but shall we meet at my house as we can all park there for the weekend?

It's because I don't want to put the lounge carpet in my car to take it to the tip!!  You shouldn't be so cheeky otherwise you might not get a lift to Guildford tonight :P

If you need a hand with the carpet I can come with my even bigger car :-)  Need to goto the dump as well this weekend anyway. I can probably fit everything I need to goto the dump with plus more than would fit in Rowan's car :-)
