The whole bunkhouse (18 beds);
is booked with bedding for the Thursday the 19th prior to the weekend for those that want to have a slightly more leisurely ride oop north on the Friday.
It also gives us a chance to have a chin wag and a beer without eating into the ride 'proper' sleep and energy reserves. I suspect Friday night will have to be a rather well behaved affair (maybe?!?!) if suffering unduly is not on the agenda!
You can take along or get before you land any breakfast and pack up tackle you like as it is set up for self catering or just have it all done for you for not a great deal of money. Speak to Valerie but she will need to know a few days in advance so she can deal with numbers.
Bunkhouse (with bedding) £150 (£200)
Cost per person £15
I require 10 people at £15 to pay for the bunkhouse not including bedding
........or 12 people at £15 to pay for the bunkhouse including bedding.(expensive bed for me otherwise!! )
If the bunkhouse is filled it will cost each person £11 (inc bedding) with the remaining £4 going in the charity pot.
I will be taking the scenic diversion to the bunkhouse from Darlington (or a convenient spot slightly further south along the A1) in the afternoon. I have already proposed a nice little afternoon jolly in my stomping ground for any that have already done enough motorway and want to unwind for a couple of hours.
Just so you know who you are...... here is a list of people that have coughed up (£15) and definately have a bed!
1 Mr NiceGuy.
4 ME! .
5 Steve C
Send me a pm to sort a bed.
They also had a couple of rooms left in the B&B at the farm last time I spoke to them.
I will update this over time with other details and additional local B&Bs on request, and leave a date.. (25/01/08)
