our Tow Car is due an MOT on the 12th June so need to get it through by Saturday or there will be no camping for us.I had totally forgot it was due until Saturday and because the Jubilee has taken up half the week its reducing time should car need any repairs. Neutral

I hope it's not raining too much on the journey, the 6volts will struggle with lights, wipers and the trailer. And we have no fans to clear the windscreen if it mists up. lol!

Yes but you can probably drive in the rain with the windows open a bit without water running in every time you go round a bend Very Happy

Brilliant ..... well done that car Woodhall Spa Meet 2012 - Page 8 1710857839

Having trouble with packing too much already and I've not really started yet Woodhall Spa Meet 2012 - Page 8 143088812

Is it rain all the time or are there sunny spells too ..... then again the forecast said rain for Wales so I didn't pack my summery things and the sun was blazing the first day and we had long sunny hot enough for sun cream spells on a couple more days!

summer stuff and rainy stuff being packed .... just in case lol!

I'm loading the dog pushchair, clothes bag, battery and bits tomorrow, the cool box is going in on Friday, then we're set.

If it's hot i'll wear a t shirt, if it's cold I'll also wear a jumper, if it's very cold i'll wear a thicker jumper, if it's wet i'll wear a coat. Or i'll wear any combination of the above to suit what ever weather we have. lol!

Save journey to everyone who is going, see you on Friday. cheers
