PostSubject: What a weekend   Wed Jun 06, 2012 7:31 am

Had to drive my son to Brize Norton to catch a flight to Afghan early hours of Sunday Morning, which was a bit of a downer,

Blew the head gasket on my LWB Frontera on Monday driving down to a camp near Brighton and to cap it all today pitched my new tent in the garden to make sure my new camp bed fitted in length ways and it started to rain and hasn't stopped yet and I need to pack it away as I'm away early doors Friday and I just know work will be mental tomorrow and Thursday.
GGGrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!

Had the same problem at and after the Bushcraft Show. When we left it was set in for the day (Sunday) so literally packed the motor, laid a dry tarp on top of the bags and chucked in the soaking wet tent on top.

Erected it in the garden Monday morning and fortunately despite on & off showers all day the wind just managed to dry the thing by late afternoon before the next shower came along. Couldn't even bag it up as the black clouds rolled in, just chucked it in the garage seconds before it started again.

Sod's law that last weekend was brillant sunshine! mad

WF, you spoke too soon when you recently said how reliable the Frontera was, you should know better as it tempts fate.

Hope you get it sorted quickly and painlessly.
