    Only just arrived, drove onto field and sunk straight away!Tony now gone off to office to get tractorman to come and pull us out- suggest he stays parked by these fields all weekend

    P.s. we had rubber mats & wood etc but nothing would get us out!!!!

    I hope they get out as well they are assistant Marshalls.

    OMG. Not worrying about it at all :cry:.

    By the Way the sun has just come out here in Kent so maybe just maybe it will start to dry up

    Sorry to say that it is still raining here at Greetham, a few miles up the road from Peterborough.

    Been raining since 02.00 hrs.

    Getting worried about going to Peterborough tomorrow. I really dont want to get 6.5t of RV stuck in a mudpit. :Doh:

    you could be right Buttons

    24 to 28 mph winds that could be a lot of head wind. my 14 mpg could be single figures

    OS... OT and OH... :winky: :ROFLMAO: (if you don't understand I can't explain... it is a "taking the mick out of RVs thing"...)

    14 mpg :Eeek::Eeek::Eeek:

    Is that with or without using the 4kw genny?

    with the trailer as well JJ

    OVER SIZED = 23'9"

    the rest you can work out... but yes 14 mpg .. dropped to 10 mpg over the Tarn Gorge in France.. but that also includes my use of the 4 kw genny.. I suspect better than you diesel van JJ:Blush:

    I try to avoid arguments... especially with lawyers... but I can assure anyone interested that my turbo charged, intercooled Iveco does a great deal more than 14mpg as does my beautiful, classic and classy Hymer 660...

    So there! Ya Boo Shucks... (with knobs on)... :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    JJ :Cool:

    I am no way as good as Buttons is

    I am miles behind Buttons, he is almost as good as Chris Green.. I rank way down in maybe 5 or 6 or even further down.. JJ is much further up the ladder than me.. he does it with magic.. he has a wand.. I do not.:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
