    Here we go then, roll up! Techenders spring event 2014 at the usual place
    http://www.victoria-farm.org/

    All welcome learn how to fix your van in company or just camp.
    It's usually about £8 a night - there's limited hook ups for the nesh which then makes it about £10.
    Breakfasts are about £5 pre book with Eddy the owner.
    We usually have a takeaway run on the saturday night.

    So what is it?

    Techenders is a chilled weekend where you can learn to fix things on your van in the company of likeminded people, there's always a few "experts" on hand to assist but we prefer you to get your own hands dirty while we shake our heads and point at things - so don't come expecting work to be done for free (beer and cake "may" help....)
    It's on the weekend of April 25th although a few of us arrive on the Friday the main day is Saturday for tinkering.

    I'll provide a firepit and enough wood for the weekend should you want to sit round the fire - there is also the use of Eddy's barn for wet weather working/evening chill out (an extra cost will be made if we use the barn to "chill" in for the heating/lighting.)

    Any questions? ask away to either me @tuesday_wildchild @zed @Baysearcher (hope that's ok lads) we always go so mostly can answer your questions.

    Next post i make is just a list of who's coming and if they have any jobs to do.

    My bus needs work but none suitable for a weekend in a field so I won't be doing anything.
    I might help but don't count on it, I need a break. :)

  10. I'm planning on coming. Want to know how to do some basics (oil change, points, tappets and the three main cables) plus help swapping out my 2-way fridge for a new(ish) 3-way one. Will be available to hold things and hit other things with hammers if required.

  12. I'm aiming on coming but have a lot of stuff to do to the bay at the moment that'll need doing before I go camping in it. However, even if I just turn up for the day (not that far from me) I'll be there. Was good last time.
     
  13. Count me in....I'll be in the area reserved for Ford Focii and other non-buses

  20. I hope it's clear to everyone that you will be doing your own spannering unless you hit lucky and @Dicky installs your electrics.
    That said if you're planning on taking out your engine everyone will want to help.
