If there is anything you want to shout from the rooftops but dont have a ladder, then this is for YOU! (plus it is a lot safer than climbing on top of a building)

Glad it went well. smile

And "not been out much" means "not climbed rock for two years and gym for nearly one". I need to build my own wall.

I have dreams about a home wall. I have a basement I could use but its only 6ft high so it would have to be STEEP. One day...

There is an old outbuilding which has not been used for years. Standard ceiling height (a little over 2m), and dodgy looking rafters, but hey, I have a reasonable job now.

Probably worth it.

I am so tempted to say it....
The joys of comments out of context. wink

On a more serious note: What do you plan to use it for? Astronomy or just looking at stuff in the distance?

What kind of a telescope did you get? I really want to get a new one. Mine is really old and doesn't work very well. I wish they weren't so expensive.

Moon and planets mostly, It's a celestron 130eq - 5 inch newtonian reflector. The starting eyepieces are a but too powerful with too narrow a field of view so tricky to find stuff, however I plan to get a lower power piece.
It's nice, has an equatorial mount so can use polar alignment to find stuff if necessary. Cost gbp118

Ooh hop thinks its already my birthday grin laugh3

WOOT! I started my own fire group late last year after years of performing in other people's, man it is soooo much work! But this week we've been taken on by a stage touring various festivals so thats a summers worth of bookings sorted grin

Now we just need to get the show sorted! And costumes. And safety gear. And PA system. And finish off the website... *passes out*

Yay! Camping with EoL and the rest of the HoP kids in a week!

Suddenly, I miss the dramatic moments between FireTom and EoL...

Where did they both go? frown

Myself and three other mates are basing ourselves in Calgary and plan on working and touring through North America over two years. So I won't be able to take you up on the FB invite to burning man this year but am there without a doubt in 2013

That's okay BM is going through transition so we decided to go to other events instead. We'll find a way to meet up with you if the universe lines up right.

Your local fire marshal should be able to tell you anything you need to know. Keep in mind that it is not okay to spin fire in most parks.

List of festivals I'll be taking my group to this summer is starting to come through. Definite for Kendal Calling, almost certainly for Beatherder and theres a clutch of others I'm not allowed to talk about yet smile Website is getting there (www.darkspark.co.uk) too.

Best thing though? Nothing clashes with Play festival! YAY!

Well, I'm not saying we'll be there, but Secret Garden Party, Boomtown fair and Shambala are supposed to be pretty good wink Depending where you are in 'the back of the north' them Summer Saturnalia is a nice smaller festival we'll be at.

If you spot us at any of them come say hi, we'll be giving out little pressies to people who've liked our facebook page, but sure I could extend that to HoP members too grin
