Wasdale Head Camping Meet 10th & 11th August - Cancelled!!!!

Postby JR » Wed Jul 10, 2019 3:07 pm

Update: due to the very poor forecast & the fact that all those expressing interest were conditional on 'good' weather (plus I'm expecting localised flooding in the Lakes from Friday's rain) this meet is cancelled. There will, however, be a backup plan...

A date for your diaries! Friday 9th to Sunday 11th of August we're earmarked for a trip to what is the spiritual home of English mountaineering: Wasdale.

For those whom are interested, please post below.

(Obviously the final decision comes down to the weather that w/e, but even I'm not predicting that far ahead!)

I'm well aware that the long term forecast isn't that positive, but we usually make the call on the Wednesday or Thursday beforehand, so the weather has some time left to buck up it's ideas!
To aid organisation, certainly when it comes to arranging possible " Plan B's", I'd still like to know who is actually interested in this meet: my sources have already supplied me with a list of 4 names...

Potentially, although very weather dependent.

I’d like to join the “potentially if the weather looks good” brigade...

Thanks for all the interest thus far: now if you could all be excellent people and do a good weather dance to make sure that the nasty low presure that's on the forecast maps for Fridya & Saturday go away, that would be very good! :wink: :roll:

When do people want to make the call on this? Tomorrow or Thursday?

I already have a potential backup plan for Sunday if people are interested.

Right then...

given that nearly everyone has said they are conditional on good weather, I'm guessing you guys aren't keen, because the forecast is the diametric opposite of 'good'!
Although the Lakes will miss the worst of the winds, it'll still be gale force over the tops of Saturday, but our real problem will be how wet everything will be: a LOT of rain tomorrow & then further thunderstorms on Saturday and the latest forecast is showing yet more heavy rain for Sunday.

I guess this one's cancelled then :(

Sunday is looking ok in the Peak (and West yorkshire too), but it'll still be very windy, so people's ideas of the higher grit Eastern Edges may not be the best one...
So firstly: who actually fancies trying for the Peak on Sunday?

Sounds sensible with that wind as well! I was actually a total numpty and had double booked myself, so won't join for back up plans!

Cheers

This isn't the first time you've double booked yourself Helen! We'll be calling you Double-booked Burns (DBB?) next! ;-)

Enjoy your 'other booking'! ;-)
