Now I know you're fibbing.....

 

Anyone would think I have a reputation for being thrifty............................?

 

Sorry, I've got to go now as my favourite TV programme is about to come on and it has taught me more about successful business practice's over the years than any series of The Apprentice.............

Come on R Cubed we all know that it can be done and the site would not be the same with that large empty space for your tent.

:yay:Hiya dad!!!!!

I am cracking the whip on him and he is working his little wotzits off. What we need is good weather (so he stays outside longer), all the nuts and bolts to come off easily and a very simple and quick change of whatever it is he needs (and of course for Rex to have the bits in stock!)

Rest assured their will be no large empty spaces at Hardwick - Even the termites are moving out for the weekend to make extra space for us moving in !

Just to advise that regular forum contributor 'NOS' has successfully completed the rebuild of his GMC 353 270 engine in time for the big weekend and is now enjoying a week off work to recover from the experience!

 

Wizzo !

To be honest it wasn't looking good at one point, and I was getting used to the idea of being confined to the airfield on Saturday, dragging reluctant Mustangs around with the Clarkat and doing 1/4 mile timed race-offs down the grass strip against Nick's Cushman ice cream vendor's scooter :drive:

:cry::cry:

 

Well The cubed one called Rex today but sadly he is at a show so cant supply the parts needed tomorrow, this will mean that the truck and gun will not be making an appearance at Bolero (Oh dear that sounds like I am blaming Rex!!!!!!!! Sorry Rex :kiss:)

We will however still be coming up and will stay in a hotel type something over the weekend. Wouldnt miss it for the world!!!!!

So we will be looking for a truck to ride in (fuel money will be given of course), maybe a tent to change in on the Saturday evening.

 

The up sides are:-

We wont need to fork out £600+ to transport us up there (though I can guess where the savings are about to be spent, *Rosie blows more kisses at Rex!)

The cubed one does not have to work like a nutter to get it all finished (which is lucky as I am on the razz tomorrow all day with girlies from work!)

I get to sleep in relative comfort for the weekend, someone else cooks my breakfast and makes my bed :cheesy:

See you in 7 days time!!!!!!!!

As the cubed gang will not have there own means of transport, I too (Rosie's father) will be looking for a ride on the outings, will like to take loads of photo's on the visits to the different airfields and on the drive between them, will be grateful to any offers.

Shame about the truck folks, but thats how it goes sometimes. Not to worry - As you say Rosie, at least you will be able to enjoy the event without both of you having hardly any sleep in the week leading up to the event! Their will be plenty of room for passengers in other wagons for sure.

 

At least that is one less low-loader to have to find a parking space!

No problems.

 

Now the set-aside has been cut and having been on-site this evening setting up camp, I am confidant that there is no longer a problem with space!
