OK, weather is too dodgy for me to want to take 4 hours in rush hour traffic followed by putting up a tent - after a full day's work! I *shall* be there tomorrow staying over to Sun, not promising a time 'cos I'm bound to oversleep ...

After a 5 and a half hour journey I made it to Wetherby last night, just in time for the rain to start. So I cracked open a bottle in an attempt to care less about the weather. It seemed to work, as I woke up reasonably dry! The rain briefly stopped, but started again once I got out of the tent. At least it helped me work out which way was up...

I saw a grand total of 3 BXs there - not sure who owned the white one but the blue one was a 43k mile 16TRS brought by a friendly chap called Paul, who was pointed in the direction of this forum.

I bought a bag of bumper trim clips (the T shaped ones which always break) from Malcolm Lockwood for a quid, which I was chuffed with. Then I left in the afternoon to get back home in time for tea. Rather ironically Lana has been sunbathing over here today!

Leechy obviously hasn't turned up yet then? You wouldn't have all parked in that slap dash manner on his watch! :D

In my experience the Saturday is always a wash out, Sunday is the day to go for, if you have the rear of your car assembled in time :roll:
