Yep. There is virtually no one on site at the moment. The weekend was busier but I still only saw a couple of dogs from afar. One of the plus points of living in the countryside I suppose.

Where's that well on site? Looks new...

This is at one of the ends of the woodland path ( near JP field) near a set of long drops. Been there a year or so now.

Unless you live in a national park and the sun comes out and it's busier than a bank holiday

Ah - never seen it - think I've only been round there once and that wasnt last year either. Hope the long drops are well sealed...

Said to wife we could go out to the forest for a few nights.. She's told me off saying that I was irresponsible and that we still had to keep away from people.. 

I told her that I intended on doing just that.. Even said I'd buy her a new outfit

*****Sad post alert****

I’m sorry to have to let everyone know, Big Dog has left Pilton to join the dog pack in the sky. We are completely devastated. He has made his last weather and ground report here on Earth, where he worked hard, but was rewarded with biscuits. Next he will now enjoy eating rabbit shit, rolling in fox poo and being a generally huge doofus on his next journey. RIP Big Dog. 😥

So sorry to hear your awful  news. We’ve been there and it’s such a sad time for a household. Wherever you look in the house you will see reminders, we still have the chewed skirting board in the kitchen!  Just remember all the companionship, laughs and slobbers you had with him. I think reading your posts we all felt we knew him and his habits! 

And he will forever be on the coat of arms!

Thank you to everyone for your kind words. Having had the privilege of sharing our house with lots of dogs over the years we know this part is the most painful. Slightly more difficult as it was so fast and, although he was a big dog, he was still not elderly. 
 

but we have great memories and the chew marks on the stairs. And of course he will live on as part of the “state of the ground” flag which will fly again at festivals next year.
