    It is gospel sexy Jesus. Supported by the Hail Mary's. Remember to praise when commanded.

  5. Glastocam!

    it is a touch bollocks on the weather front today.
  6. Site Visit 23/2/18

    Didn't see any cows, there were only sheep on Sat and Sun when we ran through and down the railway track. They have put some 4 foot drainage along the boundary directly at the east end of the railway track. there is also some 3 foot going along the side of the railway in the comman / Shagri la areas. serious size drainage. Cockmills lane is being closed for 3 weeks soon, might be cutting it into the mains like last time. Will run on the farm again this weekend, will see what else is occurring.
  7. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Welcome to pilton (hopefully )
  8. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Lucy I forgot to say that i saw your panda a couple of weeks ago. You were right it was brilliant. Over to you gumbs.
  9. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Afternoon all we have been for a final run round the farm for this year and apart from a dog called Polly and a few startled sheep, all is very quiet. Going was a bit moist but it was good to get out in daylight before work gets in the way again next week. 2017 has been fantastic, strange, difficult, and worrying at times but now over. Looking fowards to seeing you all in the fields in 2018. if anyone finds themselves at Shindig, Beatherder, Boomtown, Shambala, Sunrise, or Tokyo World (so far but there will be more) I will buy you a beer.

    still can, tier 3 still available. You know it makes sense
  11. Boomtown 2018

    Yes, we normally meet at the Bad Apple bar around 1900 on the Thursday. We firm up the details nearer the time, although it is probably the usual: Beer / cider, wander, music, drunk, repeat,
  12. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Been to the last couple of beatherders and am going again next year. Top weekend with a sense of humour. Quite heavy on dance and spangled kids but never any hassle and is quality through and through. Read Sean's reviews for the last couple of years to get a taste.
  13. Glastocam!

    Went for an evening run around the farm yesterday. All of the fields that have been looking brown (weed killer) are being ploughed. The digging in the other field is more drainage being laid parallel to the railway line. Nothing else of note happening, it is lovely and peaceful. We have our running track back again.
  14. Boomtown Fair 2017

    There are a few muddy patches but not much. Its ok. Can't speak for ped gates but it seems to be moving. Campervans was easier than usual. All good. Sun is out.
  15. Boomtown Fair 2017

    Searches are more targeted than than last few years. Dogs wandering around vans and occasional being pulled for a detailed search. They seem to be profiling and selecting. We didn't even get our usual copper wandering over for a chat to see if you look nervous.
  16. One month on...

    There are sheep on the farm over winter when the cows are in. I get the impression he is renting the land out to others but i don't know for sure. Never thought about it, just run past them. They all disappear by April, probably gone to lunch.....
  17. One month on...

    Same place, down by the football field / skate park. wide verges and plenty of room to park off the roadside.
  18. Pilton party

    Current JP field
  19. Pilton party

    It is the JP field but the tent is at the bar end facing away from the woods.
  20. Boomtown Fair 2017

    Lucy We normally meet outside the bad apple bar sometime around 1800. On the open side round the corner from the town square.
  21. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    well played sir. seriously, it is a long way north of the M4 so the food is a little exotic. But bizarrely not a single pie on site.
  22. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    CG. You could always try Beatherder, we went again this weekend and it is a quality weekend and it is also closer than Kendal for you (Sawley in Lancashire). Sean will be putting a review up soon, he is a confirmed repeat offender. A great laugh and you get gravy on your chips if you want.
  23. Glastocam!

    It only looks normal in camera shot. The area around red gate is crammed with fence and stuff waiting out load. There is also quite a lot of fence still up at the common end. Still a couple of weeks to clear the site.
  24. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Not that bad, that rain was exceptional. Today is bad enough for me to get out of my running kit and put the kettle on.
