Yeah you too mate, and everyone who was there, it was a great laugh and I`ll definitely be going to a few more meet ups. The tent I brought off Gossamer of this parish, the one thing that this camping trip has shown me is that I didn't have enough space to do everything comfortably. It`s a military command tent made for the army to fit onto the back of FFRs / Carawagons etc ( Correct me if I`m wrong Gossamer )

anyway summers here people, door tops off..



actually clearing the truck out on monday after getting back.

Regards Chris

That's a nice looking truck and anything connected to railroads (railways) works for me.

We'll come next year, this year was postponed as our "running mate" with a Minerva decided his money needs to be invested into a Mini that he'd been trying to buy for 7 years, but next year he's coming with us or we're doing the trip alone. Well, with two kids, two dogs, Facebook tracking your location and NSA listening in to your phone calls you're never alone nowadays anyway sh1

Hello you lot, I hope everyone is keeping well,

well I`ve added a few things to the old girl some have a purpose, others are there purely for the "why the hell not" reasons, so first up.

I`ve built a rear step because I wasn't happy with anything on the market and I like making stuff so.







and the second thing is this spot lamp which was going to become the reversing lamp but the plan changed, but I still quite like so this seemed like the best place.



and it`s not too obtrusive from the inside either.



and finally I`m on the look out for some 7.50 x 16 road based tires something along the lines of michelin xzy`s but I can`t seem to find anything of that size in metric ( 195 x 85 x 16 ) or imperial, so if anyone knows of anything could you me a shout.

Many Regards Chris

Does the step fir on the Dixon Bate slider?

If it folded up when not in use I may be interested in one for the boingy, it's a long way up!
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.
