5 miles from home the caravans LH wheel bearing went.
Stopped and tightened the nut up which eased the prob a bit.

I checked it out last week when I replaced the brake shoes and thought that they looked a bit ropey.
Ordered some of Ebay, they're in the post.

Driving at 20 mph with your fingers crossed is a bit awkward.

Got home at 4pm, just as some light rain started.

For those that didn't go to Newark and haven't heard the rest of the story
The RH van tyre blew on Fri on the way and I had to fit a Mini wheel in reverse onto the axle.

At the beginning of June over in Suffolk the Van wheel studs sheared, one by one, on the RH side.

Well that was all over 800 miles of travelling:roll:

It was a very pleasant weekend all in all.

Very proud of Pepe and Taz.  We drove them both there and both back without a break down.  Just a little bit of a problem with the wheel nuts on Pepe.  The fact that two of them on the front wheel were almost falling off and the other two were just finger tight wasn't too much of a problem was it?scratch  Tony insists that the insurance policy he has just taken out on me had nothing to do with it! 

Me thinks I had better check those a little more often!

Many thanks to Rick and Rose for allowing us to crash out at their house.  It saved pitching the tent and carrying everything we would have needed for camping.  (and was warmer, more comfortable, had a bathroom in the warm, had hot and cold running water, provided tea and coffee, etc etc!)

Stingy money grabbing (no not you Rosie) Newark organisers have scrimped on giving us a Newark 2013 plaque this year. Which is a bit ironic as it was their 30 Anniv.

AGM

Subs have risen to £16, after being frozen for years.

Annual Scamp Mag reviewing past year and looking forward to next year. newsletters to fill the gap.

Scamp Picnic, we need the numbers to keep the costs down.
If we miss one Aug BH we will never get back in there.

Chris W organising a visit to the Le Mon 24hr next June, looks like it might clash with Newark though.

Chris W assessing numbers for Xmas do.

Rob (me) bitching about people discussing Scamp issues on FacelessBook rather than on the Scamp Forum.
