Anyway just thought id introduce myself.

Welcome to the forum. Looks like the scamp will have good company! - Oh, and you HAVE to name them!
Your other post on the forum asked for background info. If you look on the main scamp owners club page, and click on the history bit, you will find lots.
Look on the photos bits too. You will get a little insight into the lunacy required to own a Scamp Exclamation Exclamation
Welcome Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation
Incidently - interesting job you have - look at the threads on Stourport/Scamp picnic and you will see that you and your services will be very welcome Razz

Thanks for the welcome!

Two red portaloo's? Neutral dunno about red ones havent seen any of them for years...a company called polyportable used to make them that colour but that was a long time ago.

Its a shame im up in cumbria really we have some really useful gear that we use ....but then we have to with the weather!

This was at the original mountain marathon at honister - THE DAY BEFORE IT STARTED.

(oh and they are 13inch trailer rims)

Ha, that rain looks typical of 'The Birmingham Bash' weather! The puddle the 13" wheels were in was only the same size as the puddle IN Nic and Chris's tent after 1 night there affraid

Mmmmm - me thinks a spot of off-roading in Cumbria might be on the cards Exclamation

Got any good sites and green lanes you know of? I think the portaloos might be easily arranged!

That puddle reminds me of a rally Colin & I were going to do.

Unbelievably it was cancelled after we'd all gone through the hastle of scrutineering! The scruntineer never even batted an eyelid at the Outboard motor either! Rolling Eyes

Welcome to the forum anyway. Very Happy

And loving the scenery you have. Lucky sod!
