Got a bit lost in the Forest again today! Thank goodness for phone maps but will also bring a paper one next time. Had yummy takeaway wood fired pizza ( food van in Long Meadow Campsite) & loving the evening sun - a good end to the day :) Hopefully next time we will have good weather & be able to mix more in the field.

Thank you all for coming along & making the most of things in this weird May weather! Lots of lovely chats & good to meet Funster friends again & some new to us too. With so many here & as much time spent indoors as outdoors know there are many that came later in the week that may not have benefitted much from fellow Funster friendliness but another time should be better.
Hopefully we will be back here next April with Appletree Exhibitions again - the new thread will be posted once dates (& hopefully discount 🤞) are confirmed.
Wish you all safe travels if you have left today or are leaving tomorrow morning - we have to have the fields clear by 11am on Monday but with everything all packed away already due to all the liquid sunshine that should be easier than usual! Look forward to seeing many of you in the field again later this year or perhaps another time.

Thank you for all your hard work in arranging this and keeping us informed along the way. As you say, lovely to meet old friends and I've met some lovely new funsters too.
Can't be helped about the weather but we made the most of it.
Off up the road today to Salisbury to sit in the sun.😉

Thanks from us too 😊 Not the best weather but we managed a couple of BBQs and didn’t get blown away so I guess it could have been worse 😝

Thanks also for our surprise purchase, we will definitely make the most of it 😄

Thank you Karen and Alan once again for your friendly welcome, hard work and organisation.
A lovely setting for exploring the forest.
It was great to meet and chat with fellow funsters. Looking forward to next year 😀☀️☀️

Great fun this morning we had to be towed out, I blame our neighbours. When we arrive they told us the ground had all been redone with gravel under the grass excellent drainage - lying toe rags.

I still put my bread crates under the wheels, moved off the crates then put them away and that's when we got stuck winter tyres & traction plus we're no help in that soggy ground. Now if I hadn't listened to neighbours advice I would have driven straight onto the road and gone back for the crates.

Apparently the only areas where the drainage has been sorted are the show enclosures.

Crikey. It all seemed solid. Me and 2 friends actually moved away from the trees on Wednesday because we were in the shade! We felt stupid as that was the last time we saw the sun.
Maybe it was a lucky escape!
