Chappies - the conditions are not that bad down there - put it this way, last night, you could have driven a 2 wheel drive motor in the picnic area. The real soft mud was deep down in the holes. Other areas were more top surface slippy stuff that will dry with a bit of sun and a few motors driving on it.

Just made Hipo1024 an offer he cannot refuse so he may well be there if he accepts my offer of a lift!

Just to ask for a favour .. I was going to get Fudge to weld the shackles tonight, but I cannot make it to his now ... so can I ask someone nicley to weld them for me?

All the way Ross...we wouldnt expect anything less mate!

Todays the day!!!! :dance:

Really looking forwards to it...we are gonna have a blast guys... :drive: :drink: :party: :dance:

The weather is looking promising, the woods are looking nice, sticky rather than wet, drying quickly in the warmth and the occasional shower should be mainly taken care of by the tree canopy overhead sooner than turning everything too muddy. 8)

I will be going up their shortly, will deffo be there by midday, so any time after that for the guys who are kindly coming up early to help out with setting up.
Will be at the workshop, getting stuff ready and loaded so will meet ya there...

Rossco please dont forget to pick up the camping stove/gas bottle and air bed inflater from Kels.

Sally isnt staying over, so if anyone needs to get hold of me and cant get me on my mob, please PM Gregsters Boss...
Again please please let us know in good time if any one cant make it for any reason, because we will need to try and cover what you were down on the supplies for somehow.

Dont think I have forgoten anything, if I have its Sals fault of course :lol: ...

See you all very soon, and big thanks for your support guys :wink:
Check out the index thread below where pics/reviews from all our past meets can be found!!!!
click here for the SE Events Index/links Thread...see all the reviews and whats coming up soon!

Looks like I'm in trouble with the Mrs's again...
She asked me what I'd most like to do to her body...
Apparently "Identify it" is not the correct answer!

Just need a little space for an iclke Mk.I to fit my shackles. Might need a vice (other than hot chicks and beer) to tweak the shackles as well.

So looking forward to this and meeting peeps.
