Hopefully 9/10 May.I think Mid country would probably be best as more central for everyone or maybe Welsh Wales, I don't think we have been there, Dusty when does your Scottish tour start. ?
Could always take a bottle and walk over to see the blast walls of the old Thor missile base that’s nearby 😱Good windbreaks.There's a pub in Dalby then the cherry tree at the end of our street . But there not that close. used to be a pleasant foot path to Cherry Tree but thats been moved to the perimeter of a building site doubled its length. will check the pub in Great Dalby. but still a good walk away.. No not near by you would have to drive.
Could see them missiles from my bedroom window during the Cuban crises, They sat ready to launch for days.. I was 19 didn't think I would see 20.Could always take a bottle and walk over to see the blast walls of the old Thor missile base that’s nearby 😱Good windbreaks.
I cycled over from Leicester to see them, also cycled to the airbases at Cottesmore and Bruntingthorpe as I loved seeing the aircraft movements. and also for airshows. I would have been 15 when the Cuban crisis arose; dad was busy seeing how quickly he could remove doors to make a shelter. I'd have found it difficult to get home in 4 minutes though.!!!Could see them missiles from my bedroom window during the Cuban crises, They sat ready to launch for days..

Dont forget the cost of fuel you used as well ParksyI've had a woosie moment this afternoon.
We went to the caravan storage to sort out the interior loose objects in the caravan and to tow it to our drive for cleaning etc tomorrow before our fortnight's holiday in St Ives on Saturday.
It was the first tow with the Sorento that I bought last December.
I fitted the leisure battery and the caravan came out of the barn using the motor mover, so far, so good.
I hitched up, and tried to connect the 12n lead to the car to test the lights, indicators etc before we set off for home,
The caravan plug just wouldn't go in.
The car socket is difficult to see, being lower on this Sorento than on my old one, and the sprung cover is quite strong, so I ended up kneeling down to have a good look.
The car socket is 13 pin, unlike the 12n socket on my old Sorento, but it didn't occur to me to check before I left our house.
A frantic phone around after I discovered that our local Towsure has closed down, then a rush hour drive to Black Country Caravans a few miles away to buy an adapter and the caravan is now safely on the drive at home, and my wallet is 26.99 lighter.
