Been and stuck my new sticker on the truck, pride of place by the numberplate for people to take photos of when they get fed up of me going so slowly

Looking forward to the weekend , just got to load the beer and whiskey, oh and might take some food too

Might even check where I'm going so I don't go to the wrong place like I did for the Hubb do.

Better be good weather otherwise I'm in big trouble as I havn't got the new heater working yet

see you on the road

Rich

I'm almost ready, been doing some faffing around with the Mini last couple of days, stripped and rebuilt the carburettor, runs much better now, using less fuel too! Got a wee oil leak from the nearside driveshaft, it'll probably still be leaking when i turn up on Friday night! Rolling Eyes 

Going to put the roll cage back in tomorrow, few other little bits and then he'll be ready!
Looking forward to it!

I am gearing myself up to loading the van with all the CampervanCulture.com shop. Looking forward to the seminars especially as I have followed a few of the blogs of the speakers when they happened.

Packing the truck up and leaving after work tonight. Can't risk having to park on the M25 in the morning.

Oh dear, just sorting through and boxing up some stock to take to the show and had to keep it out of our store room and into the living room ready to load up. It's a good job my Mrs is understanding Smile

Thanks man, was good to meet you too. Never did come and look at them lights of yours! Rolling Eyes 

Well me and the Mini will definitely be there again next year, with a few more miles and probably a few more oil leaks! Laughing

Good to hear man, we will be there too for definite.

We will be adding all the lights to our webshop in the very near future, so if there's anything you're after just bung me an email.

Well if things work out we will be back just in time for ao '14

Good to meet up with people, Can we have the medievil bar next year , mead, long tables and a firepit sound great

We managed to turn moroccan food preperation into a competitive sport on saturday , 2 blokes , 2 fires and 2 tagines - the race is on !

Good to catch up with Julian of overland cruisers , mike of bushpig and marcin to pick his brain about eastern europe travel , and tuggy and all other others we meet at these events

got 3 ivecos lined up and no broken ones this year (the one that broke down last year is currently in sudan so not going too bad)

Managed to completly avoid buying shiney metal bolt on bits - the advantage of the iveco - no one makes any ! but did buy loads of foody stuff (curry sauces, beef jerky and mead)

And of course the weather - Tom managed to make another pact with the devil ,wonder whos soul he traded this time, his own must have gone long ago affraid
