That time of year is nearly upon us, the sun is breaking through clouds and the birds are starting to sing. Meanwhile our thoughts can shift from freezing cold belays, bitterly cold winds and iced up eyelashes to balmy days, warm rock and sunglasses. Spring is here and for the first camping meet of the year we're off to some unpronounceable Welsh place "Cwmrhwyddfor" for the bank holiday weekend!

Situated below the magnificient Cadair Idris this is a superb location for brushing off the cobwebs and getting out again. There's walking of all difficulties as well as scrambling and rock climbing, all a stone's throw away on Southern Snowdonia's premier mountain range. The campsite itself has toilets, razor points, hot showers and wash basins with hot water supply, pets are allowed and they have space for vans/tourers with electricity hookups if you so wish. What more could you want? Oh yes, there's a pub 5 minutes walk away too.

More information on the site including directions here - https://www.walestouristsonline.co.uk/s ... ddfor.html.

Post below if you intend to attend.

In a field adjacent to the campsite lives a mule (or perhaps an ass, or even a hinny).

We discovered this on a meet there a few years ago because the mule would wake the campsite at dawn with a session of eeyoring. Both vigorous and prolonged.

You did ask 'what more could you want?' Well I think this is it. an important feature that makes the location extra-special, and I am sure will encourage many LMC members to attend.

I'll try and be there if the weather is good. It is a great location.

When I phoned them at the start of the year, the lovely lady said that we can just turn up. I was planning to give them a courtesy call on the Thursday before when the final meet location is decided.

Thanks Karl. As it looks like it is just me at the moment I've invited my friend Patti from Wales to come along too.

Me too.....depending on a reasonable forecast.
Think Peter and his boy were too, but I can’t really speak for him!
