    My camper fuel gauge had only gone into the red as I arrived at Sid's on Thursday, so imagine my surprise when I ran out half way up a Devon hill after about 10 miles on the way home
    I've not had that happen for more years than I can remember, and was saved by Proff getting two cans filled and driving 20 miles out to me, and no, I couldn't unload my bike and go get it myself as the clutch plate had an 'Ooh-nasty' on Sunday morning and was not ridable, so thanks for that Keith.
    Lots of time and effort goes in to giving us all an event like that, and it's much appreciated.

    Nobody mentioned the beer. I thought that it was great, but it took six "glasses" of it before I was certain.

    Nice one Keith.

    thanks again

    320 miles later (not including the ferry) I made it home at around 10.30 last night. Not sure if the double vision I suffered on the M6 was a result of proffs hallucinagenic cider or just general fatigue. I managed to avoid both those lorries though

    Thanks to all concerned for an excellent weekend. Apologies to Sid for nicking half of the snorer's field (at least it seems that half of it is stuck to most of my clothes!)
