    Hi,

    Not scheduled to arrive ourselves until late Friday.

    Can folks post updates here as they arrive re ground conditions etc.

    If it gets too bad, may end up having to miss weekend ourselves, as we are off to France straight after show, and Mrs D. does not want to get MH to dirty:RollEyes:

    We will be there tomorrow but suffer a lack of interweb in the UK..

    However, having been every year for the past 4 years I can assure you the ground is well drained and even us, who have managed to get stuck just about everywhere across Europe, have never had a single problem driving on or off the site.

    Weather as of this moment ( from a military source based quite close :winky: ) is cold, light showers on Friday, but dry the rest of the weekend.
    Winds are not expected to exceed 8mph

    Welllllllllllllll

    Given the source I use controls certain movements that are VERY weather sensative it will be interesting to see who was right :winky:

    If my lot have it wrong there will be some VERY red faces in the RAF met office on Monday !!!! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Well we're all packed, fuelled up eager to go. Just top up LPG en-route and set for a cozy weekend. Plenty of antifreeze stocked just in case.

    What a nice change to drive just a couple of hours. Same for Chester.

    Yup.. Woman has just finished making the stew for the weekend ! Might sound funny but it is cold out there and nothing warms like a big bowl of stew !

    She makes it, lets it cool and puts it all in 4 big zip topped plastic bags.
    We will have hot stew complete with dumplings within 20 minutes of landing !

    We won't be there as we will be at the Scarborough Fair Collection working in the museum polishing traction engines and getting them ready for the inspector and the coming season.
    All hardstanding, all indoors (including old time fairground rides) and bar open as long as we are standing.
    The downside is that I will still be there from Friday for possibley a week, working on Fairground organs and other stuff. It's gonna cost me a fortune in the bar :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
    The upside is that I get to stay on the site for nowt, including all amenities. :thumb:

    We will be heading over later in the afternoon tomorrow. We are trading so won't be camping with you. We are sure to see you all though.

    With the weather predicted we might well not even bother with the van, might just come on the bike with a bivvy and a couple of sleeping bags.. We ARE British dontcha know !!!

    Weather only looks duff on Friday and MAYBE a bit of a shower on Saturday.. but seriously.. If we relied on the weather ( especially if we took any notice of weather predictions ! ) we would never leave the house :Eeek:
