Also looking forward to the Rocker Box amended rules, have two Rover rocker covers just waiting to be butchered !

Oh me, the sheer nerve of some people, I have a pretty good house cleaner Dyson, I think he's called & lives in our servant quarters a bit like Harry Potter - under the stairs.

Not only will Mrs G be making her debut in 2018, Mabel currently going through a cheeky wee upgrade; led front & rear lights & fitting window frames around my one piece electric windows.
Photos to come....

In view of the upgrades by others and the fact I've been looking at improving on the tent I have, I'm looking at my options.

I would love a pod but I haven't tried to get in or worst still out of one and they may be a tad too small.

So after much searching I think I've found the perfect tow for Matilda.

What do you think..? 8)

Plenty of room in there, just might take you 6 months to get to Pateley, not including breakdown stops. :lol:

I don't think it will take that long, I've researched it and there's a way to do it quicker... :lol:

Ha, still think Horse Power would trump Dog Power.
I am so excited about this year, must be the thought of being retired almost 5 months by the time the next Gathering is upon us :brave:

Currently debating with 'I'm indoors how to approach this. Chris will not travel in Gladys. Not even to the end of our farm track- so that's a bit of a spoiler.
Would there be a facility to park our RV and bring Gladys on the trailer? I know- total freakin waste, but other wise it'll be me and Morris on our own with the tent again.
Opinions please, chaps...
