An informal wild camp gathering

Friday 27 to Sunday 29 October 2017
A few Bongonauts decided to meet at Tackeroo, the Forestry Commission woodland, in Cannock, Staffordshire, West Midlands.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it on the Friday, for the Ridge Monkey ‘Tackeroo Toastyoff’… but here’s a very excellent video by¬†Briwy.

When everyone arrived back, the Pumpkin Carving Competition began with earnest…

And then it was time for fires and food – kindly arranged by several of the group, who had decided to feed everyone with wonderful offerings.

Later, it was time to judge the Pumpkins. Can you spot the Bongo?

As night fell, it was time to light things up…
