  1. Sorry you couldn’t make it mate. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. Suns out at camp unlike yesterday, showers all evening. So need to finish unloading car this morning. Safe journey everybody, see you when you get here. Guessing just after lunch for most of you.
  3. Good luck sorting the motors @DanUK I see @robke has made it across the channel and is now driving on the correct side of the road. Dog food and Stella packed and caravan on charge with fridge on. Swearing involved as couldn’t find the power adapter last night so bought a new one. They only had EU ones so modified it last night. Went to plug it in just now, couldn’t find it anywhere. 20 mins later and I found the original one before the new one. Dumbass (Ares) and Lucy know we are packing and won’t leave my side, going to be very disappointed tonight as they are going to vets not camp. #badhuskydad Lucy is blowing, but it’s not coming out, can you all take turns brushing her? See you all Thursday or Friday
  4. I’ll be up tomorrow at some point, think we are going to catch evening rush hour at Brum or Stoke.
  5. You will probably have your tent up before I get there.
  6. Weather is looking good now. Packing is underway, but lost the charging adapter for the van.
  7. Good point Rob, I use it to balance the nose weight. Ironically, all that Stella came from Magor Brewery in Wales.
  8. Yeah, but I never seem to have time to go to Asda the first few days. And I buy it when on offer, £13, which is cheaper than Fosters.
  9. And so preparation begins......
  10. Any takers yet Gary? Just a thought has anyone else booked with cancellation insurance that could cancel and take yours? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  11. Sorry, yeah, hoping to go up Thursday.
  12. Finally got round to phoning to book my pitch number. Was someone else on 107, but they chucked them off for me. Happy Days. Good job I phoned as I was booked Friday to Friday, would have been very disappointed on arrival. Chloe at Ty Mawr was very helpful and sorted everything, looking forward to seeing the dogs next week. her brother has two, so I told her he should pop down and see us.
  13. Happy with that, can drive down for the dogs and walk back, get the car the next day. or weather permitting sit outside with them
  14. Likewise. I expect to be sat outside in the sun with a can of beer in my hand
  15. 2 weeks today, we should all be together. Can’t wait. But to make sure we are together we need to request pitches. I was told categorically last week that it is reserved pitches only. Whilst it may be quiuet and can maybe flex the rules, they were pretty adamant. None of last years security were there, but New bloke Paul was pretty helpful and loves dogs. As far as I can tell, we only have three or four pitches booked. Me, Rob, Dunc (party tent) and possibly Matt. I am going to request 107 (unless Matt would like in which case 106) so that back of van is to camp, easier for dogs. The space in front of utility building is not a plot, Rob you normally pitch at 10 or 11, so do you want to book 10 and Dunc book 108 so we can occupy the whole area?
  16. Next job. Expand the Stella storage!
  17. Four weeks today, people will be arriving to join me and @robke. Cant wait to see you all again. I have finished the caravan repairs/mods ready for test run next week. Repaired the Truma blown air heating. Having previously decided it was scrap, in the process of removing, found a damaged PCB which I have 'modified'. Replaced the single electrical socket in the Kitchen with a double that includes USB charging points. Fitted the old kitchen socket at foot of the bed, perfectly place for 'Hoover' and hairdryer. Fitted another double socket with USB in overhead locker at foot of bed, perfect for charging kit out of site and provided sockes for (5). Fitted additional Cold Fan / Heater in over head locker, perfectly placed to blow length of caravan. Hides nicely out of site when locker closed.
  18. Five weeks today everyone! I have been contemplating switching my phone from Apple to Android before camp so thought I would do some tests. Decided to stick with Apple rather than Android as it is much faster. I asked them both to plot my journey times from home to camp:- Apple: 3 hours 23 minutes Android: 3 hours 38 minutes
  19. LOL - That is why I said "had a river running through it" and put beach in inverted commas. ie. flat beach like entry to the river. Kept me busy in my Lunch Break though, trying to find it on google maps.
  20. It was nice there, but not what I was thinking of. Its West, has no river and not very scooter friendly. After staring at Google Maps for a while, I found it. Alyn Waters!
  21. I thought the whiteboard with a list of options worked really well. Had distances, times etc. (whether there is a pub there). Means for the regular excursions, we can swap about based on weather. But obviously some events need to be fixed / prioritized / pre-booked. Barrys BBQ, Group Dinner (out), Group Dinner (camp), Off-lead I really like that place we went that was to the East, wasn't Loggerheads, but that direction. Had a really good circular walk that was mobility scooter friendly, had a river running through it with a good 'beach'. Someone must know where I am talking about.
  22. I was planning on Friday afternoon, but will look at escaping the office Thursday and coming a day early. Will be around then to help others / put up party tent etc.
  23. Who else is in the field? Most are in statics this year.
  24. Was just thinking, could have done the attendees list in this style, just to make us think...... Ares & Lucy + 2 adults Darwin + 2 adults & 1 child Dallas & Sabre + 2 adults Eski, Chester and Blu + 2 adults
  25. No no no no, that place scares me. I always worry that you lot will get me so drunk I’ll agree to something there. Then my bravado has to fight my dibilitating fear of heights. Just had a look at ‘freefall’ and got sweaty palms. Ares has already learnt to walk in the middle of a bridge and not go near the edge. Less than four months today! Where is our countdown Rob?
