    Hi Bassist, sorry I just noticed this post. I stay in a 1 bedroom flat 16 floors up in a high rise building so not much space for a tent . I've got 2 airbeds and a floor in the living room tho

    Hi bassist,just wanted to lell you it's funny hearing you talk about the Ribble all the time.I lived in a mill house next to the river at Langcliffe,the water that fed of the river ran through our garden(olden days it was a corn mill run by a water wheel)The river was just over the garden wall,i allways think of the River Ribble as mine!
