Reporting LIVE from the W&P Show 2011

Recommended Posts

I will be leaving from Sussex to land in the Americas field later this morning.

 

Hoping that the Reo I can see sat rather close to where I have camped for the past 6 years is not where I planned to camp though? Difficult to see in these photos.

Good to see my plot is still there, and I will be arriving this Sunday about Lunchtime. I was hoping to get there Saturday, but too much is happening this week with my Mum's Funeral. Really looking forward to getting away for a rest.

Anybody passing my plot, please stop for a chat. Look for a WOA2 in Monktons near the exit.

My condoleances Robert.

I might stop by on my little parascooter.

All set up and as always it felt like I had returned home the moment I stepped out onto the fields.

 

There seem to be a few minor changes noticeable. Getting in was different to the past, but soon sorted - and I suspect later in the week entrances will be back to what we are used to? A few road around the show site have widened, and others have narrowed. Otherwise all looking great.

The Chinook landed at the Helle Pad Mereworth Training Ground in Seven Mile Lane, About 5 minuets after you shot these.

Gutted I can't get there AGAIN this year. Have a good time all those that are going.

 

I thought the Special Forces Robin might be Gritineye's runabout but no Cummins I know of would fit under that bonnet....:-D

Weather - Update Wednesday 13 July

 

I have just checked the weather charts and Friday and Saturday look changeable and wet at times, especially Saturday Night. My guess for next week is still for good weather if the High pressure in the Atlantic comes our way, but keep an eye on the Barometer for dropping pressures as this will signify rain approaching.

 

I have packed umberellas, boots and waterproofs, just in case.

Somewhat off-topic, which airtime providers are people using at W&P (those of you already onsite)? I think last year I had a Vodafone dongle which provided spotty at best connectivity.

 

Thanks

Going to book my tickets this evening for next Wednesday and Thursday as I hadn't known if I would be able to come down this year until recently. Looking forward to it now!
