    New Year GIG

    Just got home, having travelled at 15mph for 15 miles in the snow. Us wimps need to go to Switzerland I think for a spell, lol.
    And what a GIG it was, all five days we were there. a huge THANKS from Jean, Millie and myself to Bryan and Suzy for an absolute fab breakfast, company and keeping Millie warm and dry while we put everything together.
    Thanks especially to Haganap (Paul and Nicky) for solving the problem of why we had no heating for 30 hours. The company we bought the van off had put on a Gas Regular on the bottle when there was already one on the bulkhead. We would never have sussed that out for sure.
    To all the new friends we made and the old (sorry, youngish) friends we have met before thanks for the great company.
    Just had a report from NASA that a UFO was sighted over Nantwich on New Years Eve. Actually it was a MotorhomeFun Chienese Lantern that went on forever. Global warming was the order of the night when Shane decided to warm up the sky with paraffin ignited from his mouth.
    Brilliant time, see some of you again hopefully in February at the Valentine's do in Scunthorpe. Haganap, have a great time Skiing next month.
    Best wishes, Graham, Jean & Millie

    Just got back after unloading and draining down the old girl- Frankia- not me and fighting the snow up the lane.
    We had a wonderful meet. :BigGrin: Like JaG it was great to meet old and new friends.

    What super hosts Bryan and Suzy are. From the mulled wine ( innocent looking but lethal slur slur) and Christmas cake to the fantastic cooked breakfast Bryan Suzy and Pamela fed us on New year's day, everything went with a swing. Many thanks for all your time and hard work, you are stars.:thumb:

    Thanks to Nikki and Paul (Haganap) who sorted out our lack of heating ,too, by giving us one of his fuses and spent hours in the dark with our green but ineffective wind up torch :Doh:looking at fuse boxes. Also fetching us a new battery and petrol for the jenny.
    Have a great time in France skiing!:BigGrin:
    Thanks to to Cheynne for towing us onto the field to a great spot and for the fire swallowing. :Eeek:
    We had a fantastic relaxing and lazy time- just what the doctor ordered!:Smile:

    Love to see the photos. Shame we missed another excellent meet but didn't think we'd cope for a week with our puppy. :cry: We haven't been away since Upton Barn in October and starting to get awful withdrawal symptoms. :cry: We're going to try our luck and take Cav away on a few close to home weekenders. Hopefully prepare him ready for two weeks at Easter. :Smile:

    We reached our destination without a hitch and will stay on this campsite near Oxford for a couple of days, then head back to Suffolk and back to work on the 6th.

    Nigel and I would also like to thank Brian and Suzy for making it another great New Year bash, we look forward to next years, if we are still in the country.

    A lot of us certainly got withdrawal symptoms from not being able to connect to the internet, 3 & T Mobile signals were almost non-existent.

    It was nice to meet so many new (to us) funsters, and hopefully it won't be too long before we meet some of you again.

    Just trawled through the photos Paul, it's good to see us enjoying ourselves, thanks for reminding us what a good time we had.:thumb::thumb:

    Nigel and Pamala

    New Year Meet Thanks Bryan and Suzy

    :RollEyes:Thanks Bryan and Suzy for yet again another first class new year meet, the standard just gets better and better
    New state of the art catering equipment meant a FULL English breakfast for all on New years day, instead of the usual Bacon butties, courtesy of Suzy (Master Chef) ably assisted by the best egg cooker Ive ever met Pamala (Sundowners)

    The new years celebrations were not at all dampened by the very cold and sometimes wet weather

    New year was celebrated to well past 1AM
    entertainment was by way of a 3 man group from Liverpool until midnight and an cleverly executed Fire eating display (he still had a beard at the end) and Chinese's lantern launch from Shane (Upmarket Hippy):thumb:

    Thanks also due to Paul and Nicky (hagermaps) for a Lpg gas and Petrol delivery service second to non
    With petrol @£45 a gallon and a 13Kg cylinder @£195 delivered new years eve I thought the prices fair Paul, just ignore the moaners:Blush:
    great party atmosphere all week with good pub beer and excellent food we couldn't really go wrong
    looking forward to next year already
    Sorry I wasn't as socially active as normal (Man Flue):Eeek: thanks to Chris (Tick59s) better half for the drugs that made it bearable:thumb: (never tried "E" before):Eeek:
    Just for the record after the marathon cook in this week, Pammy has decided on a continental breakfast for all at the Valentine meet, you may have Jam or Butter on yer croissants not both and of course the orange juice will be dilute:Doh:
    you could of course bring your own cornflakes and ill warm em up on the cadac:thumb:
    Happy and prosperous new year to all
