Folks - thought I would share some pics with you from base camp!

 

All is well - some issue I have to crack first thing in the morning.

 

But Mark got to base camp with no aid of a satnav...! I joined him at around 18:00 tonight, so we sat in the sunshine and had a beer.

 

Previous to that we had a major problem kick off about 10:00 this morning....the following pictures will explain...

Hi Jack,

 

Did Mark have any luck sourcing the part he rang about this morning? If not, try this one, L W Vass Ltd, in Bedfordshire, 01525 403255, I am sure they will have the part.

 

Hope all goes well this w/end.

Whilst Dave was setting up the cook house on his own (I did say to Mark we should help him but he said no....let him do it by himself) we went for a drive around Dorset in Marks Girls Truck...

 

And a view from base camp..

You put up the pathfinder hq tent yet jack?

Remember the lion skin rug is on marks side and zebra pelt is on mine and serving girls with bowls of rosewater in the middle. NO I repeat NO burning torches outside, they attract the midges and sounds of the sentries slapping themselves all night will keep us awake :-\

He will need that cuppa! By the time we had finished packing, hooked up gun and finished all bits and bobs (which involved me and dad putting the world to right over some brandy!) it was about 0020 when we went to bed, my alarm went off at 0555!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

Right off to work now, love to the cubed one when he arrives. :kiss:

No problem for a Ward La France with six wheel drive and a new torquey diesel engine. :D

 

On another note, that must be one of the earliest Bedford MJ's I've ever seen. Amazing that it took so long from WWII prototype to early eighties in production.

 

Or is it simply a re-cabbed QL?
