Logistics and Tat

Following the May meeting we agreed to put up a list of stuff that we are taking and stuff we still need to get hold of. If we add size and weight this will help us work out who can carry what (and whether we need more trailers!).


REMEMBER - people/tents do not necessarily match - this is just to know we have enough tents for bodies, so don't stress if you get put in a tent with tim...

Tent One: Two Spaces - both taken. (matt/aurora)

Tent Two: Two Spaces - both taken (andrew/patrick)

Tent Three: Three Spaces - one taken (charlotte) two spaces free!!!

Tent Four: Two spaces - both taken (imogen/james)


Patrick - is no longer homeless..but he can bring tiny one-person tent if necessary

Ian - will have bivi bag to suplement ludicrously thin sleeping bag and so will be able to survive without a tent, but will hapilly occupy a spare tent space if one is available.

1 large workstands (4 kg but large) 1 small workstand (500g)

Foot pump - quite light and small - will bring unless i'm told we really don't need it..? Matt - No, we really don't need it as we're bringing a trackpump (Chris)
