Well I ain't bailing...yet! I'm packing as we speak and after cooking dinner for me n the missus tonite at hers I'll be off early doors for Dorrrrrzzzzeeet! I say yet as it's the end of my two weeks off, but as I'm agency won't be going back. And if the last 18 months have been anything to go by I'll be offered a job tomorrow. Tempting fate, you ask? Probably not. My karma is in such good shape at the mo. Unlike me and my non-Brad-Pitt-like physique!! She likes it, that's all that matters. Time to seek new top box...and if anyone wants to hook up along the way me n Maureen (green tdm850)will be going from Canterbury A2,M2,M26,M25 and all the other interesting roads, but will divert a bit to meet along the way. Ciao for now. K :P

Thanks all,

The weather looks ok, there is a bit of rain forecast but it can't be as bad as we had last year! The ground is still wet in places but the camp site is well drained.

Really looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.

Get there safely and take it easy.

I'm not on the list - but I need a break - so talking nonsense in a field somewhere for a couple of nights sounds just about right.

Idris will be packed and wheeled out of the garage in the morning, so I should be there for beer o'clock!

A small tent and no ride out for me, as I'll be visiting family on Saturday.

See ya all soon.

Pat

Sorry Mark, got to bail out I'm afraid, work just seems to get in the way and after a quiet week and a cancellation or two had a client ring up and book a couple of days of my time and work cancelled my holiday request.

Sorry mate, see you soon, down in Dorset for a week with the family next month must try and meet up.
