    Mornin All
    arrived at The Americana 1.5 Hrs early and they sent me away:cry:
    met with mr jobs worth at the gate and told Elf and Saftey still inspectin so go drive round for a couple of hrs and come back, I did ask if i could park up on the 35 acre drive way but was told there is no room, damn clever these camouflaged motorhomes cos I coudnt see any on there at all:Doh:
    Hey Ho
    Parked up at a service station about a mile away from the show with free Wi Fi so just wasting an hour or so before attempt No 2
    think i spotted Pete and Shirl (Arazona Cheif) tucked into a lay by/gateway near the grounds:thumb:

    We arrived about Lunchtime on the Thursday last year. We had to wait hours whilst they got their act together and would let us park up, never mind the weekends definitely worth it:thumb: have fun y'all

    Americana's security mostly look rough, plenty of tattoos, leather, moustaches and ponytails. :Smile:That said, last year I found them to be very professional and courteous, so you can't always judge a book by the cover.:Smile:

    Morning John. :Smile:

    Rita and I must be at the wrong venue Jim, as we ain't got any of that gear with us. :Rofl1: But I know a man that has, (Raoul), :Wink:

    How's your "yomping" going? Not too far if you are online. :Wink:
