  1. Thanks @rickyrooo1 for the tent pegs, I left them on a mat by the van and awning. Had a great time see you next time.
     
  2. It was bloody freezing.
     
  3. Thanks everyone for an excellent weekend.

    Knackered now, just waiting for F1 to start so I can have a nap :)

  4. Thanks to all who helped in replacing my suspension donuts - I hit my talent limit several times in Sat! Much better and quieter drive home. Definitely more resistance to crosswinds

    Home safe and sound :)
    Had a lovely time and thanks for all the help. I'm now suitably ashamed by my laziness to have a list of work outstanding that I must do/pay a garage.
    1st item - change petrol smelling oil :)

  8. @oscar and everyone else...

    Amazingly we came back with 1 less nerf bullet than we went with.

    Amazed.
     
  9. Had a smooth uneventful drive home and relaxing now with a coffee :)

    Great weekend. Great turnout. Great set of vans. Great company. Great beer. Great food (@pkrboo). Really enjoyed it and already looking forward to September.

    Thanks to @rickyrooo1 for the organising and to everyone who gave me advice.

  10. Thanks very much, another quality event. Cheers @rickyrooo1

    I worked far too hard on my van this time, so I'll be taking it even easier at the next techenders!

  13. Just got home.

    Had a great weekend. First night in bus!

    Didn't do any work, but didn't really need to.

    Sorry if I kept anyone awake with my diesel heater!
    And apologies for my parents and their Bongo!

    you're right! Maybe I'm being too hard on myself :)

    Work completed:

    Clean front windows
    Remove and refit window winder knob
    Swop seatbelt stalk for longer strap found under the bed (@Beaver actually did it with her She-ra strength and spanner extension)
    Watched @davidoft fit Eddie supplied HT lead on my van
    Sprayed silicon spray on my sunroof cables, whilst trying to stop Davidoft removing the whole sunroof for me :)
    Helpfully provided a rear wheel cover for people to look at and measure
    Delivered BMW boot to Davidoft and filled the gap in my van with a new towbar.

    A big thanks @rickyrooo1 for organising and Eddie for his hospitality (and the HT lead)

    A marvellous turn out and I met more previously 'imaginary' friends :)

    Bring on September!

  16. 3 miles from home. All lanes of a316 are gridlocked.
     
  17. Finally home. What a FANTASTIC weekend.
    Great to meet all of those I hadn't met before (everyone except Oscar and Bob and MK)

    Safe journey home those still
    On the road.

    See you all soon! :)

  18. Had a brilliant Techenders, there was a selection of excellent looking bays, I especially liked the Champagne Microbus and Merlin Cats Landmark, they both had character!
