Anyone going to the 'Go Wild In The Peak', BSAOC Warrington branch summer camp this weekend? I'm planning to go if I can.

I HAVE RETURNED, and to prove it I am here!

I have had the best BSAOC weekend camp yet! The Derbyshire Peak District is wonderful; tiny winding roads, some with grass growing in the middle; very steep ups, and then just as steep downs requiring careful road placement and braking especially as the roads were still wet after rain earlier on Saturday.
 
The scenery there is stunning. I've put 250 miles on the trip meter. I met a bunch of very friendly BSA folk from all over the UK but I must say a great big thank you to the organisers from Warrington branch who made the weekend happen. I WILL GO AGAIN!

The lunch stop on Saturday was at this place http://www.yewtreeinncauldon.com. Have a look at the gallery. Wouldn't look out of place in Hobbiton!

My machine is currently plastered in mud so tomorrow it will get a good clean.

Some reference material about the area is here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_District

At the camp I spotted this plunger, registered in the same office and only 13 away from mine.
