Ashes Hollow

When Briton actually gave way to a truly rare bit of sunshine earlier in the summer, a lads and boys camping trip was in order

Half way up Ashes Hollow

The rolling hills nearing the top

There is a glider station at the summit and many were out to play

Ashley sporting his rather fab optical instrument with a lens for each eye, for viewing distant objects

Not ANOTHER rest?

Rich skillfully building a bridge to find a Geocache at the top

Luke (AKA Runtus Minimus) on the precarious planks to the cache

Eew Max - "Who fell ohhhver... who fell ohhhver!"

Harry giving Max a sound beating with a large stick, much to their Dad's despair!

How to clean your child that has slipped over in the mud on his bum...
Big Rich styleee!!!


Once back at camp, it was Andy's pancake time...

Followed by a late night cheese and red wine sesh.

The red wine was courtesy of Mike, seen here proudly showing off the rather delicate bottle of Merlot he kindly blessed us with :]
He even served it to us in coffee mugs - Pure class

Today's Top Tip: Motor Bikers and Sports Car Drivers: Remember to give two or three hearty blips of your throttle before switching your engine off, when stopping at the pub. This will kindly remind patrons on the patio that you master a beast, likely to burst into life at any moment, of its own volition!
