    Cheap stopover at Bishopthorpe. "The bungalow" in Moor Lane, smashing little CL at £6.50. No leccie or showers/toilet but I thought good value for York and we often get posts that you can't get in at Rowntree. Open from March to October. :thumb:

    Yep, the lane is a bit tight turn in but there is an Allegro on now and a double axle European has just left. You are only on the lane for 3 wood (about 250 yards) :Rofl1:

    P.S. we walk the cycle track to Askham Bar for a bus into York, takes us 30 mins but I think you could get a bus from the village.:thumb:

    There is no subscription unless you want to contribute to the "Restore Hilda" fund. :Eek!: By the way have you met the other founder members Hilda and Sundance (Dave shiftzz and Graham GJH)? The only stipulation is that you must be a bit daft. Sundance has a 1st honours in daft. :Rofl1:

    Ah all becomes clear, no subscription is good...I cant count anyway.

    I am dafter that a daft person with a degree in daftness from the University of Daft.....I take it I qualify.(Edmund Blackadder)

    All hail the Pope, you cant beat a free holiday in a Merc with a fish tank on the back can you.

    Sorry, going back under my sleeping bag now

    Yet again Ken tries to prove he's dafter than the rest.

    I keep telling you, it's suspicion not subscription - don't let them have any suspicion that the subscription shouldn't be paid.

    And remember, keep it to yourself, don't let anyone else see this or they might twig what we're up to. Best thing is probably to print the message and eat it. If you've already had your supper keep in under your pillow (in an envelope so Steph can't read it) and have it for breakfast.

    Got a double first in aimless and idle as well. Now I'm fighting off people from universities trying to get me to research the value to society of dad dancing. Well, somebody has to do it since Victor Sylvester died. No, I don't know who he is either - but Ken remembers him from his Teddy Boy days :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Knobbly Knees wasn't a Teddy Boy in the 60s - he was one of Eddie's minders when he went visiting Lilly Langtry :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Update

    SWMBO tells me to get to get a grip:Eeek:

    It is not a CL (caravan club) but a CS (camping and caravan club) :Doh:

    BTW I resent those references to my body parts. There is nothing wrong with my knees. :Eek!: I will have you know I have had them for years. and apart from a motorbike accident and the occasional twinge they are wonderful knees.

    PS I have a matching set (two off):thumb:
