Well the boys have made it as far as Portsmouth, and when I left them about 2020 (as I have to be up at 0400 in the morning to go to work :( ) they seemed in good spirits - although a bit chilly.

Hogroast and tea-wagon going strong, and more arriving as we left - just wish we could have stayed longer (and got colder :D )

You didn't miss too much. Party began to break up around 9 when the chuck wagon went home.

Nice to see faces again - hope you all thaw out before the New Year,

"Onehour sth of cherbourg stuck as no cc for fuel trying to flag down a frog to exchange cash for card rofl" :D

They emptied the tank after one hours driving :eek: :eek: that Landy must be one thirsty beast.

Single figure fuel consumption nice !!! know why he had so many cans on the roof now then;)

Or did they leave the uk with a half or so tank as fuel is cheaper that side of the water? hope so!

UK cards won't work in French unmanned pumps :mad:

High fuel consumption could be something to do with running the engine all last night to try and warm up the car park in Portsmouth though :D

30 years ago (yawn) I prepped an LWB for overland to There and Back. It came with a 16 gallon rear fuel tank, I fitted ex WD under seat tanks and increased capacity to around 36 gallons and a range of 700 miles. There must be loads of LWB Civvie Landies in scrappies that would have been glad to give up their tanks and pipework. Next time, eh:beerjug:
Not seen anything yet, but whats in the Think Tank for their (possible) return Shindig.
