The journey begins.....

Post by syncropaddy »

We will all meet in your house (Syncropaddy's) at 15.00, have a cuppa and head to Rosslare for the ferry! That is the plan! It's a 40 minute drive to the ferry! The ferry boards at 17.00.

Paul's phone is off so that means he's still in bed! Its 12.45 and its an hour and a bit's drive to me from his place.

Dave rang to say his van is still in his workshop and its a two hour drive to me from his place. He has to go and get it, bring it home, pack it, shower and head down to me!

Everything is going according to plan then ............... :!:

See you somewhere near Ghent on Wednesday morning :ok

I'm not leaving till Thursday.
I know everyone is going to the best possible place for anything to go wrong but if anyone needs anything bringing out let me know before Weds evening.
I know I've said I'm not trading or taking any stock but if you need anything briging out to dig you out of the "pooh" let me know.

Happy travelling, oh and Andrew for the reasons you have just stated this is why I have decided to go alone in the T4.
Crusing to vanfest with 5 or so van is stressfull enough trying to keep everyone together nevermind going through Europe doing it also!

how do you think he got that protruberance?
Can't get that from drinking that black shyte, goes straight through you, you know where you are with lager, fair do's you have to pi$$ more but it's a decent trade off...
:lol:
I take it Dave was running that late that he just had to grab that T-shirt on the way out of the door and he is saving his best clothes till he gets there... please.
:lol:
If I get time I'll see if I can do him a better one, if the T-shirt stock lands in time that is.
