Re: FTU Day Out - Epping Forest 9th November

A bit of a late comer in this discussion, but I might try to join you for the early start if that's OK. I'm in Enfield - not so far away.

I've had 17 replies, most of them definites, but only 3 (apart from myself) have said they are up for the 6 am start! The advantage of meeting at this time is that if there is a sunrise we will be there to capture it. The disadvantage is that it will be cold, dark and there is no guarantee that the

Could all the above please confirm if definitely coming (and specify if 6am or 9am), either replying on this thread or by e-mail to johnperriment@btinternet.com

On the day my contact mobile number is 07772416988

The meeting place, Connaught Water, is situated on the A1069 between Chingford and the A104 (the main road that runs through the centre of the forest). Approaching from Chingford it is situated on the left and has a large car park.


I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!

Cheers,

John
Still not sure if I can make it. Is there a postcode or something nearby so I can find directions walking from Chingford Station to Connaught Water? I tried a quick search and couldn't find anything. I have an appalling sense of direction and need all the help I can get!

I should know later tonight if I can make it an will reply here. I'll also text you one way or the other, John, tomorrow morning so you know exactly what is happening. If I can, it will be for 9am and I'd have problems getting there on public transport for the earlier start

Re: FTU Day Out - Epping Forest 9th November

Thanks Ian,

Haven't been able to get online today - family duties. For rest of evening I'm at a firework party.

It'll be nice to see you if you can make it, the4ts.

Cheers,

Seriously, hope your togging goes well on Sunday and that the paper uses lots of your pics and prints them big!

Cheers,

Lol, I'm glad you finally used that smiley John I just hope I don't give you reason to use this or this ! (although quite what the last is I'm not sure, 4/3rds withdrawl after mistakenly buying a canikon perhaps)

As far as the photos, I have attached a couple I like, and perhaps the paper will too.











But more importantly, how was the trip? I hope the rain held off. See you at the next one I hope!

All the best,
Phil
