Loads of guest beers, and it's within walking distance of the camp site.

I'm thinking loads of bent valves, not a job I want to undertake in a wet field 240 miles from home to be honest.
The AA. Reckon I may well have to stay in a hotel overnight and be recovered in the morning shame :D

So how many are left with no truck issues and how many are on for fixing it tomorrow to come.

I also have a spare seat if reqd, if you could get the recovery for Sunday.

Should we have a quick pm of mobile numbers if anybody else has any further probs.

Does anybody have the km for this route

Cheers

Finally arrived home at 05.30 this morning after being relayed 3 times by the AA went straight to bed and woke up at 12.30
By the time I'd unpacked the stuff from the Frontera it was getting on time wise and the traffic was building on the A34 so I've decided to give it a miss :thumbdown:

Hope you guys have a great time hopefully the weather will hold off for you.

I'm going to have to try and make the next one sorry to have missed this one but 5hit happens.

Have a couple for me :drink: and give the rump steak a try at the Wainwright it's pretty good

What can i say.......................AWSOME LANES!
Really enjoyed the weekend and did some great lanes and saw some amazing scenery :thumbup:
There were some interesting moments over the weekend, none as interesting as us rescuing a guy with a broken ankle :shock: and a bleep off girlfriend :lol: , from a rough lane, after his 'Buggy' thing sheared off its rear wheel :oh yer: , it couldnt be repaired, so abit of heavy lifting and some good team work, and we had him back to the bottom of the lane awaiting assistance :thumbup: and the wrath of a very annoyed bird :thumbdown: :lol:
