If things go to plan.

Post by Mothman »

If things go to plan this year i have decided i will try my hardest to do the X Rally in Lincolnshire this year, the county of my birth.

Never taken a BX to a rally before so if i set my sights on one, i hope it will be done.
Hopefully take Gloria, as she is a rare one.

Need to sort somewhere to stay but ime sure thats not a problem, getting too old to do it all same day, given that up with my fishing in Cornwall.

In fact, next week, ile get onto my care providers and sort it. About time i met some more of you guys n gals.

A tent with enough beer in your belly should see you right! Works for me!
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...

A cunning plan bud, might be the right idea. I do have a tent but might need some help to put it up as its 20 ft long. Certainly big enough to swing a cat in and would probably house the BX too!!

Early days though. However, later today, i will contact the carer suppliers and once thats done it will be a goer. Will give me something to look forward to and at the moment mum seems quite stable.

haha, of all the events I've tented at over the years, I've never yet erected my tent! Driven over it, yes, hung it off Smiffy's car, yes, but never erected it. It magically erects itself soon after I turn up and point Vanny at it! ;)

With enough beer you don't need a tent anyway, just sleep in the back of the car. I've never erected a tent at an event yet!

back of the car? You aren't trying hard enough mate. On more than one ocassion I've woken up in a field, sans tent, car or much in the way of clothes!

I've woken up in the van sans clothes, but as you were the chief suspect in that respect the less said about it the better...
