EASTER EVENT

Post  mac aspley on Thu Jan 19, 2012 12:19 pm

Hi all


rose has managed to find somewhere for us to camp...

duke of york
ashbourne
nr flagg
sk17 9qg


no electric hook up sorry and no unessary driving around on campsite

The pub does serve food and meals from 12pm till 8pm


what we really need to know is how may tents and caravans will be attending within the next couple of days (so rose can ring them back)

I found it useful to check The Cat & Fiddle Weather Cam to see how bad it was up there before sending our lorry drivers up to Selden Research...
I think the camera will be about 10 miles from where you're camping, but it'll give you a rough idea. http://www.maccinfo.com/cat/
It refreshes every minute, so you do occasionally see something driving by. Very Happy

We'll be DIYing on the bungalow, in between Reg being on-call.

Some silly sod put this under Neils refurb ................ Doh

Post  Mk3rob on Mon Apr 09, 2012 6:39 pm

We went, we got stuck, we broke bits and we all then came home.
Mk3rob Today at 1:06 am

.Snow, Snow and more snow ......greaaaaaaaaaaaaat

6 scamps, 1 Paj, 1 Disco (?) and Mike S 4x4. so a good blend of getting stuckers and pull er outers.

Mike B arr thurs pm followed on Fri by Tony & Lyn, Col & Deb & co, Mike & Wendy , the Thorpe party along with the Pork pie hanger on. After finishing nights Fri am and having a kip, I got there about 5pm.

Brakages started early, with Mack only getting 10 miles from Newark when the Trannies (!) rad blew so he went back home to get his tow car.
Colins clutch went and he got trailered/dollied to the Campsite before him and Tony went back and nicked the clutch from Daisy !!!! Opps hasnt he told you yet Nic
Sat my steering column pulled out of the rack cause i hadnt fitted the pinch bolt right Doh. The consequences of this was that it was an undemanded left turn (Clyde) into this wall and two holes in the sidewall of my tyre. Any one got any 12 Mud and snows ? After swopping all the wheels around and having my road tyres on the back in record time we were off again. Most were gob struck how quick i could change the wheels with my batt op socket gun. I could have sold half a dozen right there.

Most of Sat Deb had been on about how loose her steering was , so Sun am Colin tightened up here rack ...................... clamp bolts and she was well happy.
Sun am Rosie organised an Easter egg hunt for the kids, we had to sit on Rob B the big kid.
Adam turned up with his Scamp in the back of his Trannie van and off we went. Mid afternoon on a hillside break he checked around it only to find that his rear shocker was dangling by the bit of rope holding his rear tarp in place. He blamed the Galv steel, but we all put it down to duff welding and dodgy MOTer. Colin later found he had also bust one of his.

Snow Snow Loverly Snow
It was well enjoyed by Scampers, young kids, dogs and one and all.
Fri, the early arrivals did a few lanes and got blocked on a couple.
Sat was better with us managing to plough through most and getting dragged through others. Two did defeat us all, one when we walked across it and i pushed my spade down into it proved to be abour 3 feet deep !!!!!!!!!!!!
We went to the start of one very long section which was a none starter because it was steep and littered with small bolders.
But all wasnt lost on Sun pm we did it the other way round, 1st gear downhill lurching fron one bolder to another. Even on Sun there was still drifts of snow across some tracks.
After all this when we were on the way back to the campsite with one more track to do Adam sudenly lost all his brakes and limped back. Good job he came with it in his van
The campsite was basic but functional, the pub was great and the last night we all went for a mass feeding frensy ,
I think Rob B won .

Note to self ............ Pack my wellies next time ............a few of us have gone down with Trench foot due to having wet feet most of the weekend while we were out and about.
Mon 10am saw most of us packed up and departing off into the Derbyshire mizzel

Bring on the next off roading event June BH in Hants..
