I'm OK Cole - got a place all week Smile

WFZ??? That's a bummer... Sad Was looking forward to seeing ya Matt! I've got a nice ESP equipped Audi now so there's no chance of drivi.., no, I better not tempt fate...

I'm leaving sometime Friday night - probably late knowing me and my organisational skills so getting there about 11 hours later, not counting stops for a pee, stops for a snooze, stops to shout at the satnav (Audi satnav is the pits... grrr)

You barmy beggar, an 11 hour overnight drive from one little island to another after a full day and a camera club meeting! Have a good one, Skye's one of my favourite places, wish I was there! If you don't know already, you can get a really good meal at reasonable prices (especially compared to the Three Chimneys) at the Old Schoolhouse in Dunvegan Smile

My goodness, Stephen, you left on Wednesday! Epic!
Weather yesterday was bad, not much better this morning either.
I am in Inverness Airport now, though another 3 hours till departure.
Good to see all the new faces I have known for ages in EPZ.
Thanks to Katy, Goggz, BigCol and Stephen for the lifts.
Thanks to Jamie for organising it.

Saw Coenraad to the airport this afternoon and enjoyed an evening with MrsMad and Mr Talisker (just a wee dram). Looking forward to using my new Lightroom knowledge to process my images of Skye (thanks Pete).

A cracking meet, good company and a very able host.

See you around.

Hope yes all got home OK.

is any of you having problems viewing the EPZ meet page with the pics on? or is it just me (the link's on page 2 of this thread). I'll put in a report but thought I'd ask first

Likewise back home now after a 8.5hr drive and some 450 miles later, but it was worth it. Thanks to everyone who contributed in making it a memorable week and it was nice to meet you all, and thanks again to Jamie to organising it in the 1st place, it's a shame you had to leave early, maybe we'll get that ride in next time Wink

Good to see you again Ian and Robbie and thanks for the delicious meal you served up on Thursday, You to Pete, and thanks again for the lifts, much appreciated mate. Stephen, shame you had to cut your stay short, or late in your opinion Smile, it was nice meeting you and hearing your endless jokes, I'm already looking forward to the Ireland meet Smile

Hope you got home safely Meredith, nice to meet you and enjoyed your company on the outings, you too Katy and thanks for dinner earlier in the week. Conrad, it was good of you to come so far for a meet, it's nice to see that EPZ attracts members worldwide for meets and it was a pleasure to meet you, you also Colin, lookforward to seeing your shots, even though we didn't see much of each other, it sounds like you had a good week.

Stephen, I don't think meeting page is working properly.
If you upload a photo to the gallery and link it to the meeting, it doesn't appear in the meeting page.

What's wrong with driving there? Wink


Hi all, thankfully I slept for 10 hours last night after arriving back home @ 9.40pm... sheesh. Passed through the lakes too late for a sunset at Buttermere Sad was snoozing in Tebay when Harsharn txtd to say he was at Pooley Br. "for the best light he had all week")

Thanks again Jamie for organising it. Shame you had to leave early. Thanks everyone for a very, very good time and thanks Colin & Katy for putting up with my company on Friday night. I had a great time!
Thanks Tooth for the jokes and the company! Shame you had to go bud.
Thanks to Linda from Kelpie Crafts for the free painting of Neist Point Lighthouse after I tried to (unsuccessfully) fix her tractor.
Thanks for the thanks Cole! SmileWink

Thanks respectively to Katy, Robbie & Cole for the chicken curry, free mussels in delicious sauce and chicken curry with special burnt rice... different! Wink

Thanks to my wife for letting me go, thanks to Audi for their rubbish satnav which doesn't show lighthouses, only similar-looking headlands... special thanks to Continental for their superb tyres which kept us on the road on those infrequent occasions the road went a different way to that which I was going...

Thanks to Graham & Carol for showing us the sheeps skull (would never have noticed that!).
THanks (NOT) to the unknown person who had removed it the following day Sad
Thanks to Harsharn for locking the car!! A 25 minute run over rough terrain to do it and not a hair out of place on his return! Wink
THanks to John West for making such handy snacks.
THanks to Meredith for showing me that book about Sledge.
THanks to the little green caterpillar for providing the foreground interest in a shot of a flower barrel I took.

Thanks to the weather for dishing up some good stuff, including that shot of the Old Man of Storr Grin Oh, and not to forget my manager - thanks! Is that everything covered?????

NO it isn't!

Special thanks to Jean (the Co-op, Portree) for the cardboard, clingfilm and marker pen to make a temporary number plate and a BIG thanks to Ian & Robbie for finding my real number plate the next day!! Smile Yay - it's back on now with more double-sided tape than a nuclear sub... Grin

Finally, very special thanks to the bloke in the shop who pointed out the public loo in Broadford just in time! Phew!!!
