  1. Sad to hear you can't make it guys and gals. I hope you get sorted and can make it for next year. Like others have said, I to will miss those pink wellies around the camp site. Just brightens the start of the day up. Stay good and hope to catch up with you all sometime during the year.....
  2. Cheers Neil, I had a thought it was on here somewhere. Tony
  3. Sorry guys, must read more before posting.
  4. Just had this site posted on the PM forum and thought I would share it with you all. I know this is not a model site but just take a look. AA do do a 1.35 scale but this is great. Just scroll down and have a gander 1.24 scale FV622. http://www.kitformservices.com/tq.html Tony
  5. Directions for camp site. West bound M3 come of at junction 8 onto A303, Strait on for about 25 MLS till you approach Countess round-a-bout, take the third exit onto the A345 Devizes, follow road for aprox 1m till you hit next round-a-bout, take first exit of and follow road through Larkhill Garrison, drive strait on till you find Fargo camp on your left, about 1 & 1/2 mls on you will see Rollestone to your right, Directions for camp site. South bound M5 Gloster Junction 11A, take 417 to Swindon, cross M4 A346 to Burbage, take A338 signed Salisbury follow road to Tidworth, drive through Tidworth for 5 MLS passing Shipton Bellinger on your right, drive under the A303 and you come to a rounder-a-bout, take 3RD exit of and get onto the A303 then follow directions above. Vehicles coming in from Dorset will need to get onto the Salisbury road and then to Stone henge. I will post the post code for the Bustard in for all SATNAV user's soon.
  6. Don't you believe it Dave, a lot of stranger things go on on the the ranges mate. Have seen all sorts of wacky things on the ranges in my time. A young couple bouncing around in a pig is nothing mate.
  7. Paul that water pump is going to haunt you for the rest of your life mate, HEHEHE. Neil could I post a few of your vids onto the Plain Military forum mate? Baz I think we are going to be ok with maps, Many thanks for the offer. Tony
  8. Giz, The 12x12 will be of great help as a command post. I am just starting to go through what maps I have to see if we have enough. If you have any mate please bring them along. Thanks for your help. Tony
  9. Westdown have no knolege of this 4X4 weekend, They have told me that if anyone outside the group tries to park on the area we have the rights to send them packing. I have also been in touch with Chris at Land Marc and he will be watching every move they make...If all else fails, maybe a bit of monster truck action with the Stollys
  10. Like I say Neil, if they haven't got a licence to be on the area over night, by law they are breaking the Provisions of the Military lands act 1892. I will contact Westdown first thing in the morning and find out weather they are just passing through. I know Dave next to the Bustard lets his garden out to 4X4 clubs, this isn't a problem with me. The problem is where are they parking there vehicles. At the end of the day that area is ours, we have payed for the licence and nothing has been said to me about anyone else being there........... If I remember rightly, the first Plain Invasion weekend we had a load of 4X4s turn up on the car park......... Tony
  11. Roy was hopeing to have the new room ready by May. As for the 4X4 I have not been told anything about this event in the area so I need to check this out. Not sure where they are parking cos Plain Military are booked in area 12 that weekend. No licence, no parking.......
  12. Paul you do know all tracked vehicles will have to stay static mate. West Down won't permit the use of any tracked movement......Sorry
  13. Just a quick heads up, The licence will be dropping through the letter box any day. PLI is almost sorted, just need to check the small stuff. To date we have 60 vehicles + 4 Motorbikes coming this year. If you thought the convoy was good last year just wait till this lot hit the tracks. All routes are well in the planning stages and even though we are haveing a few glitchs trying to get the DTA we have a back-up plan. More later guys. Tony
  14. Neil, the wages are $*&, the food isn't much better and as for the hotel, well the least said about that the better...........
  15. In a way I agree with the fact that MR Kemp could put young mens live on the line, but not so. After spending a few weeks over the last year Photographing MRXs on the ranges, media peeps are inbedded with the troop training. Prior to Ross being sent to Ganny he spent a bit of time on the Plains getting to know the Reg he was attached to. I was asked last month weather I would like to go out to Camp Bastian for a three week tour taking pictures of the next Regiment due out......... It was a big call for me and turned it down in the end. Most folk think I am barking but at the end of the day I have far more important things this end to think about. WIFE, WORK and I'm scared of flying.
