/ Is it winter yet?
I'm back now that the white stuff has started to materialise again - did I miss much?... didn't think so ;-)
Anyways... it's winter season again (Is Kinder in yet?) and I thought I'd poke my head in the UKC door again.
I'm looking at getting out a couple of times this season, January or February. Probably staying at Rothiemurchus for the Cairngorm or the Alpine Hut for Ben Nevis (both Joint Services huts).
Thinking about planning a winter UKC meet in Feb, thought I'd gauge reaction first (any other Service or ex-Service personel here? Then we could look into a joint bid for a group stay at either hut).
Early thoughts please, or a show of hands? Numbers first, then we'll do dates, then we'll sort a grot.
It was winter last week, now it's back to autumn.

I guess that's early season for you... should have settled down by January though.
Meant to say, this invite is to all, not just Pongo's, Bootnecks, Matlow's etc. Last year I signed civvies into a hut no problem.
