Cool... unfortunately I now won't be in my bus :( as the gearbox I fitted last week is leaking oil and wining.

I'll keep an eye out for your bus. We ususally hang down at the Worms Head end as its quieter!

Doing a U-turn on RTTS, weather looks real crap, starts bad and gets worse :( So, day out for the dogs on Saturday in the local Forest of Dean.
Packed a few belongings and headed out to Pirates Cove. In my buddy’s old grey Kombi we rolled until the gas got low.....
