We’re off and running

Hello Everyone!!  We’re back!!

This year’s field school students arrived at the cottages throughout the day yesterday and by about 9pm (local) we were all here.  So, we woke up first thing this morning to go into town and forage for supplies at the Tesco.  Before we left we gathered everyone in our (now traditional) spot for our first group picture.

Our first photo together!!

You’ll see that our Western flag suffered a little in storage over the winter, but we think it looks tough now and is more suited to the wilds of Northumberland and the mud of the trenches.

We’ve now returned from Hexham with two full cars of groceries and fresh new wellies for the entire crew (some in traditional Western purple: Pantone 268).

We’re off for a hike later this afternoon and will update you as soon as we can.  Big spaghetti dinner tonight!!

  2. Hello Everyone! Nice to see the sun shining! If you need a new flag let us know, but agree the battle-tried 2012 veteran does have more character.

  3. Thanks for starting up the blog again. I’m looking forward to following this summer’s adventures!
