  4. Mike, apologies. I now have a medical appointment for Weds and impractical for Linda to come alone. So regretfully we will both need to pull out.
  5. Mike I've pm'd you on WhatsApp
  6. John, if anyone drops out, I'd like to join please.... Ta Pete
  7. Mike, I've never been on the Weir before. Does it still run in low water? Currently showing 'Empty' - 0.43 at Sunday morning.
  8. Mike...the calendar time appears to conflict?? (2130). Could you confirm please? Thanks Pete

  10. Ok Tom....I won't put our names to this trip just yet then. If you are sticking with this time and venue I'll post a 3rd trip!! 1000 from Pooley Bridge. This allows us to miss wave 1 and more critically means a civilised start for our 1 hr 45 drive up there. Hoping we can combine......and would be great if Robin was open to this too.
  11. Julian, Tom. In light of both your comments....Linda and I would still like to do the trip, but with a later start (It's quite a hike from Skipton). If We're guaranteed company, I propose, as above, meet at 1000 at Pooley Bridge. If that works, I'm happy to post yet another trip, although it would make sense just to change Tom's continuation trip?? Cheers Pete
  12. Hi Tom, I'm really sorry but Linda and I will likely pull out of the Ullswater Trip. I fully understand your rationale for changing the arrangements - and I have zero complaint. However, the new plans don't really work for us. I realise this leaves you high and dry - on your own - and I apologise again for that. I'll give it further thought this morning and let you know sooner rather than later today. Given that we won't be meeting up with the original 6 in any case - we may still paddle from Pooley Bridge but delayed by an hour to give us a friendlier start from our long Skipton drive.
  13. I've had to drop out.......unfortunately (but fortunately) I have to go to Cheshire to pick up a boat. As of tomorrow I won't be boatless!!! Woooohooooo.
  14. John...if it changes, I can't make Sunday ....I'll be in Poland!
  15. I too am interested......Ta Pete
