I will be heading to Gimme Shelter for a three night camp on Thursday 27th February until Sunday 2nd March. For those who have not been before, it's a very basic site with no shower facilities and compost toilets. They do however allow campfires which is a bonus. Who needs a shower when your sitting around the fire?     Gimme Shelter is roughly a five minute drive from The Forth Road Bridge just outside Inverkeithing. Hopefully some kind soul will post a wee linky of the site

Names of folks meeting up so far are:

* krazykamper - Thursday-Sunday
* themanwithnoname - Saturday-Sunday
* Bowies x3 - Friday-Sunday
* Jim Call - Thursday-Sunday
* thebiz - Friday-Sunday (possibly Thursday-Sunday)
* armchaircamper - Thursday-Saturday
* VangoMan02 (For a wee day visit over the weekend)
* andycapp and Sandra (Also joining us for a wee day visit)
* Jelboy (might also manage a wee flying visit)

This is a picture as you first come into the quirky site

One of the pitches. Most come with little tables and benches handmade by the owner. This picture was taken when I was last there in September.



See you there

Here you go, Krazy.

Gimme Shelter

Not sure if I can make it that weekend. I'm free on the Friday night but not the Saturday. I'll have a think.

Thanks for posting a link armchair

That's a shame your not free the full weekend. It is quite a distance for a one nighter. Would you be free on the Thursday? I could always go on the Thursday and stay three nights if you could manage that?

Och that's a pity Jelboy! Will raise a glass of something for you that weekend. Noname and I will hopefully catch up with you before our trip to Knoydart in May.

Could you not fake a wee sickie jelboy? Just this once think you are allowed to do this at least once if not twice in your working life.

Hmm, I could possibly drive down after work on the Thursday but I'd be arriving in the dark. Yes, that's possible. Good thinking, Krazy! Have you booked up yet? I'm sure at this time of year they won't be full. I'll make a decision and let you know. Just as long as I'm home on the Saturday in time to have a shower(!!)and get back into Aberdeen by 9.30pm.

Armchair, I've not booked yet but emailed Yvonne and Chris this morning. I said I would contact them with numbers nearer the time. I would help you set up if you arrived on the Thursday night. The fire would already be blazing away. I would even cook tea that night! Now, how can you refuse that offer? Remember it's still six weeks away and it will not be dark until around six.

Well, there's an offer I can't refuse! What time would you be there Krazy? I could probably get down between 7 and 8ish and I'd bring the little Halo so it wouldn't take much pitching. I could try cooking something in my Dutch oven on the Friday!

I would probably head over around lunch time on the Thursday. Oh, I'm sure everyone would love a cooking demo in the Dutch oven! Sounds good to me.

I've only used it once, Krazy, although I have to say it was a great success. And this from a reluctant and not very skillful cook!

I've actually got the weekend of Friday 14th set aside for going camping as it's about the only weekend that's entirely free. Haven't decided where to go yet but will have to have another Dutch Oven practice then in preparation. Maybe I could play a tune on it too, then I wouldn't have to bring a musical instrument!

And isn't it time we were thinking of going back to Comrie Croft?
