Brilliant !

What a great weekend that was.

I have just (literally 5 mins ago) learned about Ziggy from reading a post on here....

When the 2014 weekend had finished at the hall, there were a few of us lucky enough to be able to follow Ziggy to a known high spot he knew. He guided me through what to do and I was lucky enough to spend the day with him eating bacon butties and DX'ing under his expert guidance and wild enthusiasm.

A man I first spoke to from my old home in London - all the way to the Peak District ! I only met him on that particular weekend but upon returning to CT after a few years of 'family trails', he was the first person I PM'd here to say hello again. I did wonder why there was no reply.

God Speed Ziggy - and I hope that PM I sent you a few days ago remains in the ether for you to read one day.

RIP buddy

Matt
Maybe tomorrow I'll find my way home....
