Kevin and Huff,what an interesting guy and what a Scamp,with everything out of the Harry Moss book of spares you could lay your hand on.I was told he had rejoined as a member so we might see him at Stoneleigh.Did you ever see his Kennel and his canvas caravan?

Rose, Is he still a member? I know he broke his ancle several years ago and have not heard from him since. He's a lovely man and I'd be happy to contact him if I can have his details.

Yes, What a genuine guy, i seem to recall one huge battery for a jcb or the like. The car has all manor of switches ,lights and fuses, Thanks for the help Chris & James. I for one look forward to meeting Kev again. I recall he had a CARANEX Tent on the rear of his scamp. Was it the Bristol area he was from? If anyone fancies a trip down if possible to see how he is that would be nice come the warmer weather? Could we combine this with a Southern KitCar show Chris? Take care, ttfn 4x4 Rob.

Exeter and Maidstone are probably as far apart as Manchester and Hastings so I think it would take a while to get there.Maidstone is not a million miles from Canterbury,then you've got the Royal engineers museum and dockyard at Chatham,and Saaaaaaaaaf End in't too far away as well,Maidstone should be a good crack in the evening as the River medway runs straight through it.Don't be too dissapointed at our southern kit car show though,it is very small in comparison to Stoneleigh and Newark but,for me,it will be the first outing for the new miniscule caravan.

Thanks for that Chris, Its about time we went South for a change, Hopefully this may generate the interest of others. Im sure you would like to see The club more in your neck of the woods, Than having to come the unteen hundred mile trip to the midlands every time. What do the rest of you think ? Can we squeeze this into the callender when its a little warmer. Put my name on the list. Where is Huff ? Icon_biggrin

Hi there, Kevin and Huff rejoined the Club last year. He was waiting for the rejoin entry form in the mag last year, sadly we didn't get a mag at the beginning of last year. So Chris could you print it in the next Scampers. We should do a event down south, there are plently of green lanes in Hampshire or go down, East Sussex way? if anyone one is interested?..Its a long way just for a weekend..

Rick,is it just me,but has every event got to incorporate green laning?We used to have events where we visited places,organised treasure hunts,we even had a crazy golf tornament on the sea front once.I know for a fact the only green lane in Hastings has been totally destroyed by the 4x4 crowd,not even the farmers have access to their field down this lane anymore.I enjoy green laning like anyone else,but it seems that every event has got to incorporate a green lane or two.

Another thing Rick,you seem to forget that the majority of events are over a weekend and we in the south travel to a great deal of them,normally north of Watford Gap!!

We're going off at a tangent here...... Where is Huff ? Icon_rolleyes ....I'm just as guilty.

Kevin and Huff were at my first "Scamp" Stoneleigh..........didn't he do the Quiz.......or have I got my wires crossed Where is Huff ? Icon_scratch

I'd really like to echo your (Chris's) thoughts on Scamping being a "broad church", accommodating different interest areas, etc.

Having not owned a Scamp quite as long as some, I want to do everything, but it not always possible, due to other commitments.

I'm here to have some fun !

Thank Dave it's one of those things,I remeber in the days of Steve Taylor there was a green Mk1 with a murell on the bonnet,he turned up at the picnic and it was the best Mk1 there,then Steve turned round and said the trophies would only be given to those that did the off road picnic coarse................we never saw him again.I've learnt from that day that if our club is to survive then we have to take on board everyones idea of..........fun.
I can't remember how long Kevin has been with us,he just used to do the Stoneleigh show and the Christmas bash.

I feel the same way Chris. Currently I really enjoy things like the mini/kit car shows and weekends away like the Birmingham Bash.

Having done Mike & Wendy's bash the once,I want to do it again,it's a gooden.
Oh,I forgot to mention about the bits I've replaced through off roading...........the chassis,rotted from inside because it was full of water,first it was the cross rails then it was the main side frames,just fell apart.Ended up renewing the whole frame,worth it though.
I'll probably go out and wreck it again somtime,that's Scamping.Remember,AJB is a delecate 40 year old now,I don't know how many that is in Scamp years,probably 110!!

Blimey i only asked where Kev was! "A long way for a weekend", Its a weekend or just one day for Chris and John to get to most of the shows we attend. In my youf i and a few mates rode on motor cycles (BMW R100RS) down to Ramsgate, up through the boring bit above france (Sorry Chris) and into Holland to watch the Dutch TT in 4 days. We also used to do the North West 200 in Ireland that was a long weekend trip. Ive done Goodwood in a day. We might even get the pleasure of a trip round the M25- Where is Huff ? Kopfschuettel I know its difficult for those in the club long term as most have been there and got the Tee shirt. But there are the few newer ones that havent. Another place i would like to go is, over to Ireland again although its a little expensive.£5 per pint! Giants causeway, Bushmills Distillery, a proper Guiness! Where is Huff ? 221997 Soda bread !! A long way for a waste of time try 12,000 miles away and a 23 1/2 hours in cattle class...........?
