    Got home OK deciding not to stop for the last bit from Oxford, where going off to Sainsburys got me petrol at 158.9p instead of 175p at the previous filling station on the A34, about a mile back.

    I had a great weekend, glad I stayed the extra night for the chat round the burning barbecque .. (we discovered how to overload a Cobb , repurposing it as a fire pit. Eventually some plastic caught fire .. ) Fortunately a couple of cups of water poured over the correct places put out the external fire, and cooled the metal that had ignited the plastic. ..

    This weekend seemed to be partly about people who fitted 123 distributors to Type 4's and then had mystery ignition issues.. Which I think came down to voltage drops on the positive power feed to the coil being higher resistance than a T1 by design, we looked over a schematic and the wire is a lot skinnier on the VW diagrams..

    Home, safe and sound after a great weekend great to catch up again. Stopped off with @mcswiggs at the British Motor Museum on the way back just off the M40.

    What an awesome 3 nights.
    We really enjoyed ourselves fantastic company and we we're overwhelmed by the lovely comments about our loft conversion

    Highlight of the weekend was @mikedjames pole danceing last night on Sarah's awning pole and guide ropes, pity we didn't get it on video.

    Safely home and vaguely unpacked!
    A great weekend as always, new faces and old; wouldn't miss it.
    Thanks to everyone for the sliding window effort - it does open now, albeit I still need to develop a bit more bicep power.
    And big thanks to @pkrboo for not only the best mac' n' cheese in the land, but for collecting and delivering the twin carbs :)

    September is already in the diary x

    The answer to Life, the Universe and Everything…. Not only in a small cafe in Rickmansworth then, but in a field near Lutterworth :D
