    A non-polictical post related to motorhoming...:winky:

    Anyone thinking of visiting QM in the future should know that my brambles are the hardest, toughest and coolest brambles in the world...

    ...study the photos...

    This bramble (collected in March 2011) has travelled under the Wagon in all weathers all the way from Portugal through Spain and France to the UK. There it travelled to many Funsters' meets (Camarthan, Peterborough, RW meet in Stratford, Newbury and the Stratford show) and then made the return trip back to Portugal. It is still hanging in there...

    Respect hey? :thumb:

    I reckon that this well travelled bramble (we also marvelled at it at Stratford) should be handled with dignity taken off the stealth machine, framed in a suitable home made wooden plinth and put ond display for all to see at QM.

    The rambling bramble


    This bramble is held under tension
    It has travelled for thousands of miles
    It has helped to support your suspension
    And has undergone many great trials
    It's a Portuguese bramble that's had a good ramble
    And given us funsters a smile!

    Courtesy of my man Shaughan.... sitting in the rain at Rosslare waiting for the morning ferry

    Best regards
    Catherine

    You missed out there JJ, we had to buy a load of razor wire to keep the scroats out of the bottom storage yard a couple of months ago.

    Your brambles would have been perfect, do you gat any berries as a bonus?
