Mike - didn't you mean the Star on a reasonably priced tank? :whistle:

Yup that's the one.

What an EPIC day today! The convoy is massive! We've been to Maiden Newton, Martinstown and at the mo were having tea and cakes in Dorchester. The out riders are doing a sterling job in keeping roads clear, thanks guys and girls!!

Jack is blowing the whistle and keeping us all in order. From my perspective everything is going tickity boo :)

It's 1.45am, it's absolutely pouring with rain, some big old gusts to, our eldest cubelet has been sick (and worse) this evening-everywhere and due to him running out of clothes now I am going to have to go home in the morning :(

BUT saying that, it's still been an amazing time and I am still smiling :)

Bring on 2014.........

Oh dear, sorry to hear about eldest cubelet :( It's no fun when your kids are ill, even worse when its away from home. Glad to hear you got to enjoy some of it anyway.

Does Jack know about this?

 

Well I made it into Dorchester yesterday. £ hours there and 3 back (average 45mph)

Not only did Jack do a great job, he even got the sun to come out at times.

SO I suppose I better put a a few pics.

 

Mike

 

SO WELL DONE JACK:yay::bow::bow::bow:

Thanks Vulture :)

Unfortunately I started a little while later and am still 'going'

It's an unfortunate end to a wonderful weekend. I have cried on Jacks shoulder this morning (literally) as I'm devastated I cant go today but that's life.

some great pictures there of a great weekend, massive thanks to all that made it happen and a big thanks to the outriders for doing such an excellent job of keeping the convoy together and moving, well done:tup:: (we wont mention trying to send a few of us to Honiton!:cool2:). also well done on the weather, never before have i experienced all four seasons in one weekend!!!!!!

 

The Mrs was gutted that she decided to head home this morning thus missing out on the sunny afternoon on the beach! who would believe the weather could turn out so nice, Mini Ring love the chance to strip to his pants and get in the sea!!!

 

Trip home was lovely in the baking sun without a traffic jam in sight! truck performed faultlessly on the return journey, very happy.

 

Once again Thanks for a great weekend.

 

it was all too much for some on the way home :-)
