By the time i've picked her up in the morning from coventry, dirven 10 miles, broken down, driven another 10 miles, broken down...etc...it would be time to turn round before we'd get there !

Seriously tho', Maisie's only 4 & as much as she loves Walle & can't wait to have a drive in him, she's a bit shy around strangers. Plus i don't want to risk getting her home late !

I can drop her off & be down on saturday night so no prob's. My mate is up for being there on the saturday & putting the tents up tho'. (saves me the 3 minutes it takes to put my tent up)

I will be there in a disco again and so will wallie (even if i have to tow it there...sorry neil). If you need numbers for support vehicles then count me in. Will have as much support gear as i can carry and a few tins of extra fuel if anyone thinks it would help.

Hopefully this year i wont need towing out myself Smile My new disco is somewhat modified.

Don't be cheeky woz, just because Walle had a few teething troubles when i picked him up... All i shall say is, How many times have your various Landies broken down on the way offroading ? Most memorable one being ... I'm sure that diff's getting louder, where's all that oil coming from ? followed by Doh Bl##dy Matt.

Seriously tho', looking forward to driving the ultimate in offroad vehicluar transport........................& maybe having a go in your Disco too.

ok, so i didn't clean out the old broken diff before fitting the new one in....collected 8 old teeth from the case, welded it up and off we go, until the starter stuck and burnt out, oh and then the gearbox imploded..yeah maybe i should have bought a scamp afterall. Still perhaps the new disco will be the answer...

Just make sure you pack the tool box in the scamp, i'll probably need to borrow it Smile

The way Walle's rebuild is going my tool box will consist of:~ 1 set of Allen keys, electrical screwdriver, pliers & gaffa tape....Every bolt i'm replacing is coming from my ex companies stocks of grade 12.9 capscrews hehe... with enough gaffa tape, you can accomplish anything.
Still as the main role of walle's bonnet at the moment is that of workbench, don't be suprised if i turn up complete with a vise...complete with 'Black & Decker' transfers on too.

Woz, just wait till Matts out offroading & weld a set of wheels to his Snap-On toolchest....Instant trailer & portable machine shop. (i'm sure you could weld one of his compressors to the back of your disco, would match the size of your fuel tanks).

The question we're all asking, is the approach angle as steep as the departure angle Question

Having Known Warren (Jolly) for over 18yrs Embarassed , i'd estimate that the approach angle won't be a problem... the big give away will be the extra set of wheels mounted on top of the rollcage Laughing !!!!

Seriously tho' i've seen the disco & the rear approach angle is massive, the front approach will depend on how much restraint he doesn't show with the 9" chop saw Twisted Evil !!! Boy's & their toys ! (I'm still trying to talk him into cutting most of the front off Shocked !)

think the rear angle is about 80 degrees give or take abit, the front will be less because i dont want to flip it over doing something stupid. Saying that the plan is to remove front bumper and raise it a few inches and chop the front chassis to suit. Building it because at stourbridge last year i couldn't open the rear door on my disco after i'd finished playing

to be fair i'm hopeing to spend most of the weekend in neils 'wallie'. I had the luxury of a fully kitted workshop and a foldaway MATT on hand to get the job done(only neil will get this joke). Neil has rebuilt his car which to be fair was in a bit of a sorry state(good old ebay) and done a top class refurb and upgrade to the old girl with the car parked on his driveway through rain / snow / sarcasm while working full time as well using smart ideas rather than bottomless budget ones.

green laning at Stourport?

Post  lin and tony on Mon Jun 22, 2009 10:57 pm

Have looked around for green lanes local to Stourport. There are a couple over our way - bout 10 miles from SOS. We (Tony, me, Colin, Deb, Charlie and Maisie) have checked these out - light weight,easy going when we last tried a few months ago. (see the entry re - a glorious weeknd - or something like that) Nothing particularly scenic like the Peak district but pleasant enough on a sunny day and close to the Severn if you fancied a picnic. Only enough for half a days fun. One does run along a stream for about 10 yards and could be fun if there is a lot of water about.driving (Our profile pic was taken in the water there!)

There also look to be a few others a bit further away - bout 20 miles from SOS(ish) Haven't looked at them yet, but wondered if anyone would be interested. Question I know many of you are quite happy to stay at the camp site with the wealth of tracks to explore there and really just want to know if it is worth us going over to check them out (Probably will anyway at some point in the summer!) drive1
Anyway, its just one avenue of thought - (Might have to confiscate Taz keys off Tony to get him to leave the site though!)

Hello folks, a big wave from Muddybuggies.com. At Newark we were approached by Mr Harlequin, (please accept my apologies as I never did get your name) to join you in our Freestyles at your annual picnic. I have just read the whole post including the way off topic stuff Laughing to find out more to try to drum up support over on our site. Couple of questions for you if I may, as I have no idea who Mr Harlequin is/was/or could be within the club does he have the power to invite us, will we be welcome? Another question which I almost fear to ask is has the cost issue been resolved. The last current one assuming we are invited & you ave resolved the payments, how do we go about giving you the ,money?

Hi Alan,

I was the nutter in the "outfit" etc.....

I been a fan of the Freestyle for years ....but could never get round to handing over the cash Rolling Eyes .

We didn't get chance to have a good chat, with the music in the evening and the car arranging in the morning......it seemed to be a very busy weekend

Yes, I did mention off roading events especially has we've done a few in your neck of the woods (Worksop ?).

The Scamp Picnic is what it says, our big bash of the year, and is (primarily) for Scamp Owners Club Members, especially with Insurance and the Health & Safety considerations.

I'm not in a position to unilaterally invite you to the event, so appologies if that's the impression I gave.

With this year being the Scamps 40th Anniversery it might be a "Closed Shop".

But I'm sure that there will be opportunities in the future for us to join up and have some fun !

After all we've a lot in common....mini based, off road kits, insane drivers,......only your engines in the wrong place. Wink

As long as you are a paid up member of the SOC (13) I cannot think of a reason why you couldn't attend Stourport, obviously you would have to pay for the camping/off roading at the site (like all members do). Smile

Stourport certainly won't be a closed shop event but as Reg has said we'll no doubt have the same arrangement as previous years. You join the club on the day (that covers insurance and you pay the 15 per vehicle for the weekend.

Pretty much anything goes (as always) but I'm sure that anyone acting in a wholey inappropriate way would get a strip torn off! Though it's not happened yet. Very Happy
