Bad Camberg was a great show, but what made it so special for me was the journey there and back, great buses and even better company... I think it's going to be a difficult tour to beat...

I've followed Mark's, Dai's and Deano's restos closely over the past couple of years, and to travel with them to Bad Camberg was a real treat for me, especially knowing the incredible amount of effort that had gone in to get them there. Cheers, I loved every single minute 8)

Got back to the farm at about 2am this morning - What an epic journey!!!! :lol: The last part was the hardest with gale force winds and driving rain blowing me and Mark all over the M4 - Ever seen branches littering the hard shoulder as you drive??!!!! 8O Phil finally came in handy by driving me and Marika back to the farm in the polo after leaving the '53 safe and sound in Bath - Finally found a reason for bringing him!!!! :lol:


Fantastic to meet you all, excellent company, a totally memorable time and a fantastic line of 10 busses all rolling beautifully!! 8) 8) 8)

Gaffa tape tour! :lol:

2am Dai! 8O
Phil was worth taking, it was great seeing him and Mark with their animated conversations in the cab when they were following us! :lol: 8) :roll:

Marika - yes he is Chris, and so is his wife!
Is your dad's name Geoff? Only one dad could think of but he doesn't think he was in Gib when we were.
Is your dad going to contact SW RNA?
