Well I shall definitely be heading down on Friday morning for a 1pm ish arrival.

Sleeping options are up in the air at present as the "tent" just failed it's MOT test! (The world's one and only Land Rover Discovery camper van).

Alternatives are the two man dome tent in the back of the Focus or strapped to the back of Mrs M-C's Kawasaki (cos i'm curently motorbikeless too)! Mind you not sure I'll be able to get the mountain bike on the back too!

Weather don't look great as according to the BBC weather website lots of the below for Thursday, Friday and Saturday:

TFM, I think i remember seeing that hannibal roof tent near us last year. was so jealous. I'm sure you'll have Mrs Wu quizzing you about it over the w/e, she wants a Defender and a roof tent so much.

:D

This is what the Disco camper looks like (weekend before last at Eastnor).

Yes I know it looks like a standard Disco but the inside has been converted to sleep one (or two very short people).

Heard today that Pat Adams (organiser) has arranged a luxury house complete with swimming pool! nearby for our accomodation, so looks like I will have a comfy bed for Friday and I'll only be camping out during our shifts on Saturday night (plan is for commissaires to do four hours on four hours off). But that depends on you lot (and all the others) behaving yourselves :D :D :D

Having watched Midlands Today this evening it looks like most houses in the Worcestershire area now have (or are) swimming pools.
