Thanks Phil. I've heard that's a good place for deer rutting too, different time of year though obviously! I hope you can make it out with us and/or dinner at least one night.

List modified above on previous page to include Dave and Maria  :)

.....Who will be arriving on the 30th and leaving on the Sunday.
Dave asked if he should bring anything. I suggest walking shoes/boots and a sunhat. Nothing else really because the 20 euros is to cover breakfast, packed lunch, dinner and drinks, ie beers, soft drinks, wine and, yes, the neighbour's famous orujo  8)

Hi Lisa
and everyone going to the summit,
have a great time, with lots of wonderful excursions  :dancing:

 We'll be thinking of you having fun, but we must be closer to home whilst waiting for a certain migrating stork to deliver a very special parcel one day in May!  8)

Regards,
Sue
Thinking of visiting the beautiful Sierra de Grazalema in Andalucia?

On the 30th I'll be picking up Lucy and Nick from Santander at 12.00 so we should be able to visit some interesting spots on the way home.
Dave, any idea what time you'll arrive?
Friday, Glennie, Technopat and entourage will be arriving a.m. Teresa has now wangled Saturday free so Friday will hopefully see us in the Cordillera Cantabrica  8)
Saturday is now day out with T.
Isidoro will let us know nearer the time whether or not he'll be free for Sat/Sunday.

Lucy and I will also be accompanied by Mónica which means that the Catalan Faction (Facció Catalana) will equal its record of last year with three participants.

Hi all.

I asked Lisa of-line if a newbie would be welcome and well .... many thanks to Lisa for letting a newbie come along.

 :)

I'll be leaving the Bilbao area at about 10 am.  Looking forward to it very much. I don't live very far from Bilbao airport - anybody still looking for a lift?

Hi Bob,

Lisa mentioned to me that you might be picking up us Catalans from the airport. Do you know anything about it?

Hi Nick

Yes, no problem.  Glad to be able to help out.

:-)

All ok?

Bob

Bob only lives an hour from Santander and was planning on leaving at a perfect time to pick up Lucy, Nick and Monica so has relieved me of the journey. Not that I would mind going but it saves having two cars on the road and leaves me free to be home to welcome Dave and Maria with a stiff brandy nice cup of tea after their journey over the pass  :) Thanks Bob.

Ah I see.  Sadly, my flying car is out of commission at the moment, so I'm afraid that won't be possible.  :'(

No probs.  It's a very minor detour, and it would have been absurd to have lisa and I pass each other on the road.  In fact, a bit of help on the navigation will come in helpful.
