    Friday was upon us and the Volvo was packed , Will n Lou had finished school and i had the night booked off in preperation for a weekend with some vw cyber friends at weston park shrops , With a niggle regarding the recently fitted volvo cv joint in the back of my mind we set off on the 40 mile journey at about 6pm , halfway there and in the middle of Woverhampton the niggle reached fruition - the gear box began to whine , i pulled over and sure enough the gearbox seal had gone and ejeculated the oil , great start -- refilled the oil as best i could and slowly trundled the last 10 miles to cj at 40mph .

    We reached weston park at 7.30 and spent a age queuing to get in , but it was worth it !!.
    As soon as we got to the latebay enclave our friends descended upon us , my official stalker ( baybirmingham ) was away to the cooker making teas , rickyroo1 and Dubious had our tent erected in a shot -

    over tea Lou looked at me contented - we felt at home already .

    After tea it was time to meet the rest of the gang -- strangely though there seemed to be a gap the size of Wales between rickyroos van and the next latebayer - still it would suffice as a helicopter landing pad in case of emergency ! .

    The rest of the gang were equally as welcoming ,and on friday we had Donnydubber , Alanred7 , the hippyhoughs , the wilma's ,paradox , sandybay , beckyip , vw olive , jivedubbin , lmpd , poptop2 , Dubious , rickyroo1 of course baybirmingham and their amazing ( on the road and campable ) vans dog n dubs were there too but selling ..

    A drinkie poo around the fire was the order of the evening and jolly nice it was too , sat there amongst our cyber friends -- thing was i felt like i'd known them for years , so comfortable in fact i got a little tipsy .After a comfortable night between loo and door finished off with a dawn wash down with wet wipes i finally hit the sleeping bag --

    i dreamed that DUBious rowed with his wife about the size of his sausage and woke the whole campsite at 06.30 - silly thing to dream .

    Saturday was shower , show , hillboarding and tug o war ( how i got roped in as captain i will never know ) fancy dress and try to act sober day .The Hillboarding was bonding , its amazing how unsympathetic and smiley friends become when you fall off a board , Donnydubber and dubious beer in hand were the hero's of the hill boarding , me n bayb were pretty awful - still we would show our metal in the tug o war ---4pm and we mustered in the main arena , the support was wonderful , we the latebay.com tug o war team would be victorious .

    Thebricksh-tehouseworks had differnt idea's, so too did the we hate all the pie's north Anglesea air rescue coolled team -- it is at this point i have to say -- we should have tied the rope to a convenient bus -- we lost despite the superb support in magnificent fashion , we dug in held fast and they leaned back -- all over .

    Yet we still had hopes in the fancy dress , jivedubbin ( or jabba the beach hut ) was in it with mrs jd , limpd -- i still can't work out what they were apart from scary -- they got a third between them , well done you guys , we drank to that .

    Sunday was pack away day and show n shine day , Alanred7 kept our end up in the show n shine and shoulda got something for his efforts , his van was well turned out , i think he's gettin a new front bumper for next year .Our vw friends were a pleasure , the weather was tropical and the show a treat , i can't fill you on with all the laugh's we had , the jokes we told and the smiles we wore , so will leave it like this -

    Next year we are gonna do it again , camperjam is one of the best !.
