    I must apologise for introducing an unacceptable level of informality in the replies to this post.

    "Yes please Nantcolly, dates permitting I would like to join you on the River Taff, Thank you for the invitation"

    I'm afraid I can't make that weekend. Interested in a relatively easy ww trip during March (any weekend except the 17/18th).

    Hi Guys, might be interested in this, what's the situation with accommodation and parking(I know that depends on which part of river) but I have a 21ft Motorhome :-) could use as a shuttle as can carry 6 persons

    If we do the lower Taff. Parking the Motorhome on Longwood Drive, Coryton Cardiff (thats just of J32 of the M4) shouldn't be a problem

    Hopefully the enormous Welsh Earthquake of 17/2 won't have destroyed all the rivers, changing their course and filling them with mountains.

    Shame I can't make this one, due to heading (very) north on Friday for our annual winter hills trip. Have fun.

    Directions to meeting point tomorrow. Leave M4 at J32 and take turning to superstore and services, approx 100M after leaving the slip road you come to a roundabout Left to Asda's and Mc Donalds, Right to the petrol station, Go straight on down the hill and around a long sweeping Left hand bend, I will be parked on the right side of the road in a white Renault Kangoo van. see you at 11.00

    An excellent couple of days, coldish but very headwindish. Once again, excellently organised and run by Kate and Paul. Thank you.
