Ordered exhaust from Longlife in Swansea as Bessie failed MOT with a rather large hole in the original one! Should be here in a couple of weeks....

Well done Baylee! Our Lady bug went in for her first MOT yesterday too, she's growing up!

My Bessy Blue had a longlife exhaust fitted today to replace the original which blew on the way to the kombi sleepover weekend before last.....all shiny shiny now and purring like she should. Thank you to Lisa of longlife and Paul of VW Down under for fitting it!

Charging leisure battery, packing and now cooling down fridge, ready to go away to the Big Church Day Out festival in Sussex tomorrow.

No hook-up, so leisure battery will need to last until Monday!

Battery tips:

Have fridge up high for the journey, turn it down on arrival and off overnight (make sure the door is closed tight). You'll be fine.

MOT pass and no advisories... Dizzy that is,...I would have failed on worn joints, a tendency to wander, and possibly emissions Smile .

Fridge is too old to have such fancy things as a 'coldness' control?! It was rubbish, to be honest and needs replacing; it kept on coming up with battery low, even though I knew it wasn't and wouldn't switch on at all.

Anyway, Big Church Day Out music festival was great and we survived the thunderstorms on Sunday night (even if M. had to get out and lower our sunflower sunshade in the night!)

Stan came back from the New Forest, after a short weekend away cycling and camping.

He's now back on the drive after a quick clean (pleased he cant see that Scooby got Meguiared - he'd be jealous)

Tallulah had a nice wash today too, after a busy week taking us camping, kayaking and to the forest for Go Ape.

We had planned to pop along to Stoner VW Expo too, but decided that we had too many jobs at home that needed finishing. Maybe next year.

Bumble went to the New Forest over the weekend (like S/Stan), but we were in Lymington. We also took the ferry over to the IOW with our bikes and cycled to Freshwater Bay, once we'd exhausted the Old Gaffers event in Yarmouth.

Nice site (if a bit noisy) - has http://www.hurstdubfest.co.uk/ there this next weekend. It was a bit windy and I managed to break our flagpole No , well the bottom section anyway. Any idea how to fix it?!

Bought new wheels for Sadie today. Powder coating our steel wheels was ruled out as it cost close to the cost of new alloys.

Our flag pole broke and I tried to fix it with duck tape. It didn't work and we ended up purchasing a new one. It might be possible to just buy that section.??

That's what I was hoping - I'll contact Spirit of Air; until then, we have an 7m flagpole pirat

'Cleaned his nose' after the drive home from a FAB weekend in Glastonbury with Als - it was a trip man! Very Happy

Missing Glasto already!

Bessy gone a spring clean today and re-stocked and fueled up ready for another weekend of camping. She was pretty grubby from her cornwall trip at half term.....now all shiny shiny...like the new exhaust.

Put it on a flatbed truck and took it to the garage due to , hopefully, a broken clutch cable

Picked up the van from the garage with new clutch cable. Needs a new cable conduit (ordered).
Booked in for next Thursday to get the conduit fitted.

Can't identify the clutch cable required to replace my spare one with certainty so will leave till I get time. The new cable is bound to last a week Smile
