Martin.... I'll be arriving with tea, coffee, milk and a fridge! However there will not be quite enough to feed the 5,000! And I am only there Sat-Sun. Be happy to help out for a time though. :D

Might even pack some bacon and eggs for Sunday if I can be persuaded........and I may well have some beer/wine in the fridge.

Just in case you misinterpreted that, its not just me that's had the 3 Doom bar and 2 red, there's Muley Jim and Flasherman Phil to help me :cheers:

It's now 3 reds but we've persuaded Phil that he doesn't need to go to the pub tonight :lol:

Must be very localised, guys; we’ve had no rain in Crudwell since lunchtime :shock:

Local forecast is for rain until lunchtime tomorrow, then clearing

Hot showers and soup available at a very reasonable rate just up the road if required.

Enjoy it guys, within the limitations of weather.

hopefully i will be in a better position next year, im pretty bummed out (think thats the correct expression) for not making this one. although the weather is making me feel less bad about it.
no rain here, clouds all day long and a couple hours of sunshine just before nightime. so i made the best out of it and fitted remote lock system on one of my toyotas

1991 elan se project

I drove 300 miles down the A7/M6/M5 with the top down and factor 15 liberally applied. It was only when I got to Cirencester tthat I had to put the hood up :?

Not often the weather is better in Scotland than Englandshire :twisted:

Having spoken to Phil yesterday, I have put a spare shower-proof jacket in the car (as he is underequipped).

Will be leaving in about an hour (still no rain here, but will have roof up anyway - can guarantee rain somewhere on the M4, and sods law says i'll be in traffic moving at 20mph so would get wet, but unable to stop and put it up).

I was wondering how you guys enjoyed this morning’s wonderful Wiltshire weather!

If you’re looking at the BBC Weather app it always says it’s raining! Look more closely and it says ‘low chance of precipitation’. ....... Which is probably wrong anyway.

It’s meant to stay dry for the rest of today, which means I’ll probably be washing the car in the rain after work. :lol:

Actually, what are you happy campers up to this afternoon? If I give you my address and leave out my buckets and collection of AutoGlym maybe you can make yourselves useful, because I won’t have much time this evening. :lol:
