Syncropendence Thanks.

Post by jed the spread »

A big thanks to all of those who made number 10 so epic. I think this one was the best ones so far for us. It was brilliant to be able to try out some new towing techniques in preparation for other trips we plan on taking later this year, amazing to hang out with the usual crowd and make two new friends Fab and Carla, finding out that Alex can drink as much as me :shock: , Isaac absolutely loved it and wants to hang out with his Dad more often now too.

I am not sure you can ever get bored with the venue because every time I go I find another part I haven't driven before and the views are always amazing.

Great weekend it was shame I couldn't stretch it to a week. Could have stayed there for ever. Thanks to all that made it happen and a big thanks to Rich for lending me PEJ and the tent.
it`s a big round cage and there`s too many animals in it for my liking. To help address this ring lee on 07977 765818.

Yep, it was rather good...drive home was heavy going! My apologies to everyone not saying bye but felt a tad rough Sunday morning!

Next year I'm going to be better kitted out and i won't be fetching the range along again! I didn't even bring a mug..what a mong.

Can't wait for the action videos to start popping up.

A splendid weekend. Managed to stay in shorts all the time, so summer must have arrived. Good weather made for a relaxed, unhurried affair.
Hello to all, new and old, you made my weekend.
The 'bob on' club camaraderie came out and helped those in need with spare parts, advice and willing hands.
I was green with envy as I drove back from Bala with some new seats, to see the long-termers heading past me for the weeks laning in Wales. You lucky so and so's.
Managed to forget all weekend to ask 'what is the hole size in the front cross member underneath the bumper top that one rivets the foglight brackets too?'.

Aha, thats why I saw so many T25's coming through Shrewsbury yesterday early evening & a couple leaving Oswestry today too :D I was in the white high top syncro camper travelling in the opposite direction, totally unaware that the event had been on :(

Yes, just saw you out of the corner of my eye waving at the last minute & only just managed to wave back. Must be the camouflage (plus I was pretty much flat out too :mrgreen: ) Nice to see a few syncro's on the road, quite a rare sight :)

I was there in spirit!

Family duties saw me at Ye Olde trip to Jerusalem Inn Saturday and the Devon weekend will see us travelling back home through Italy/France after our hols so it looks to be an eventless year for us in 2013 :cry: It has to change.

Photos/vids will help ease matters .......
