Well I for 1 had a good weekender! Liam had a whale of a time and the truck now hates me even more. So all in all top weekend lol. I hope andy got his fan working without blowing a new tyre changing hole in the clearing :P.

We got home (mine) at half 11pm after leaving the woods at about half 6 ish? So not the quickest recovery ever but hay.

Looking forward to seeing the pics and vids! Expecially when I nearly rolled it on the axle twister lol

Glad you got home ok Dan :)

Good to see everyone over the last few days and the rain stayed away despite the roof being down - well until today anyway but i am not taking blame for that one.

Guinness World Records have been on the phone - appears that we have broken then record for most people looking under a Frontera bonnet - Andy's!!!

Great catering from Sal and Mrs.Tats - thank you!

Well done as usual to Greg for making this happen and to everyone that attended for making it a good un!

See you all soon

A great weekend, thanks to everyone who came and made it a blinder! :drink: :drink: :drink:

This has got have been the most chilled weekender we have ever had, uber laid back and a relaxing weekend for a change over the norm that took a week to get over! LOL.

Thanks to Robfog, Andy and Lisa, and Chris for coming down early to assist with set up.

The weather was great all weekend, until today, when we paid for Stevey2much running with his hood down yesterday!

Great company, great food, in a great setting were the order of things for the weekend, big thanks to the chefs lisa and sally, and everyone for their cooperation in our "food experiment"...which from feedback recieved was a success.

A cracking weekend, just what I needed TBH, and I cant think of a better way to unwind.

Finally a big thanks to everyone for welcoming our 2 new fluffy members to the weekenders mayhem...Misty was at last years aug weekender, but Kane and Benji enjoyed their first FOG meet this weekend. Kane had been to a workday before with misty, and was very "helpful"...but little Benji, our rescue from Romania, is new to pretty much everything, but made loads of new friends this weekend. Thankyou everyone for your help with them this weekend...they have all finally dried out and are soundo snoring their heads off!
