Yes. I will.

I might even wash it first.

Whooaaaa! Steady on there, young Stuart! :D

Bit of a drastic suggestion, isn't it?

I went in Sally once, having just blown a jet wash over her, and received kindly advice from the CCC members all day.

It's tempting to drive round and round Doc's farm a few times before going, if I'm honest...

I always do!
the valver should really have won the "muddiest car on site" award last year!

I might wash and polish it before this one though..
Although I may not.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Indeed. Of course, even if I wash it before I set off, it'll be covered in dead flies and dust by the time I get there.

I plan to be at the National this year. However, do I take the Tatty-as-hell DTR turbo, or the Likely-to-be-unique C25?

Hmm. Decisions Decisions.

C25 mate. Take the C25. Really, take the C25!
Then you can get ouragiousley drunk on LHM ( :wink: ) and crash in the van!
After previous years I've learned to erect the tent before getting plastered! Had it not been for Vanny a couple of years back I'd have been sleeping in a field with no cloth protection whatsoever! Not that I'd have noticed...

It's got to be the van! Tatty BXs are ten-a-penny - take your exclusive vehicle and park it next to the SMs.

I was thinking about this. Harveys is my local brewery - like, about 100 yards from my house - and Best is a very quaffable pint. Reckon 20 litres will be enough? 40 pints for 60 quid sound OK? Don't worry about the "let it settle for 24 hours" bit - it will be perfectly drinkable, just might have some bits floating in the bottom of your pint.

Who else is in? Seriously, I'd love to bring one - if we've got enough people willing to split the cost of the polypin and able to finish it over the weekend we'll do it!

Oh yea! I'll throw in a few farthings Stu - I'll be coming straight from sausage side ( D) having not licked a pot of ale for many a moon.

I'll have a few Fürstenberg on board, not that anyone's interested in good German pilsner..

The first photo came up while I was looking up 'C25 van'.

That's 35.2 pints in total, (a pint is 568ml) for £58.56, or £1.66/pint. Sounds like good value to me, as it is very lovely indeed.

That'll do me... What's everyone else bringing? :mrgreen:

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Thats rather what I was thinking actually.
YES, I am most definitley IN!
However, you do realise that only 35 pints is nowehere near enough, in years previous I reckon we must have polished off over 17 pints each given the amount we brought, and the need to go to town to get more mid evening.
Even then we only actually went to bed because we ran out of beer and there was nothing left to do....

Although, big keg, plus some local bottled beers, plus a shopping trip into town for more.
That should see us ok for the night.
