Is anyone off to the Malvern Show, we are booked on staying on the CCC pitch, just hoping the weather is ok by then, as the line up for the show seems to be good this year, and is there any way forum users could meet up for a chat, nice to put faces to names. (and yes I know there is a thread for the show but it is from 2006 and not much up to date. Carol.

We're going! After visiting Dishy Dave to get cruise put on our camper we'll be there some time on the Thursday until the Sunday (weather permitting!). We're looking forward to it as we've never been before ... anyone know if it's liable to be affected by the wet weather (not floods hopefully), just the rain?

We put down UK Campsites as our 'club' as we belong to this but not the others and I don't recall a section for 'Forum members'.

We will be going as usual, also have been there for the garden shows, ground usually copes with wet weather OK. No longer have the 'Ranger' now have an Autosleeper Legend on a transit N577TPR.

According to the website there are no problems with the grounds. Let's hope for sunny weather

I've got an idea ... yup, I do have them occasionally!

What about those of us who are going putting a sign in our windscreen with our user ID written on it? That way if we are wandering around we can 'recognise' each other from the forum and pop over to say hi?

What d'ya think?

Not a bad idea but I won't bother, the readers of MMM should recognise my 'van now.

Mine's a Holdsworth Valentine with big pink flowers on the back and two black dogs guarding it. Nuff said?

Yes Janine, a good idea, I know Diamond Daves 'van from rallies with another forum, I also have Holdsworth Owners Club Badge stuck in the window, have you joined yet? We have some good rallies with a nice crowd of members. Most of us no longer have Holdsworths for an obvious reason, we do miss our old Ranger. Unfortunately I had to get an automatic. Dodgey left leg. Stroke! but I keep going just for spite.

Funny you should ask, David, I sent the application off yesterday!

I am also going to book Malvern today. I was going to wait and see what the weather does, but I have been waiting since May for summer to return and if I don't go away soon, I will............ well, I don't know what, but I will

Hi to everyone who has posted on this, sadly yesterday my mum passed away, and at the moment don't know where I am, but think if all is well a break may do me a bit of good , and we may come down for a few days if we do would be really good to meet up with fellow forum users. Carol

Hi Carol

My condolences to you. It will be a hard time for you but speaking from personal experience it will get easier but will take a bit of time (we lost my hubby's Mum in December after a short illness).

Just take it a day at a time. If you need to chat drop me a PM.

Forgot to say, we'll be in the UK Campsites area - don't belong to other clubs now so had to pick that one to get the discount - anyway see you all there - our reg is FJ56 YPM - low profile Rimor 645TC. We're bring a few bits and pieces to see if we can sell them so we'll probably have signs in the window so you should be able to spot us.

Oh, and if you see two nutter riding around on push bikes with a kiddy trailer behind one with 2 dogs in ... that's us!

Yup, feel free to come over and have a stroke!

If the weather is nice they might even come out for a sniff whilst sitting on our shoulders as we wander about.

Sounds like a good idea!

They weren't affected with the last round of floods, so we should be OK.

Anyone taking their stetsons and revolvers then?

Off to bed now so I guess I'll find out on Thursday as we're setting of tomorrow teatime so won't get the change to have a shuftie on here again before setting off.

See you on the showground guys (Dave - see you on Thursday morning chuck, don't forget to take Dex to work!!!)

So-long, partners ... hopefully it'll be a rooting tooting weekend, dog-gone it, can't wait!

The good news is it was a blazing weekend weather wise, there were lots of very pink bodies around by Saturday afternoon. We left about 10.15 Sunday morning just as it started to spit with rain then we hit a very heavy shower about two miles away. other than that it was bloody brilliant!

Have to agree Mel - brilliant weekend (except for slight problem with my waterworks and not enough vodka)

Rain stayed away except for few big spots this morning. Weren't we lucky?

yes - what a great weekend, we got the solar panel fitted on Friday morning, worked a treat with all that sun too!
Charles and I met up with Mel and Chris and Janine - we sat in our 'van last night and had a good laugh. It's true Janine did not have enough vodka!
Got some pics but they will come later.
We left at 4.30pm after another brilliant day - only a few spots of rain in the morning and then the sun shone yet again.
Excellent journey - no holdups, got a bit slow on the M69 at one point, but we were home with the kettle on at just after 7pm.
All the washing is done, van cleaned out and ready for next weekend - hey ho - good ain't it?

Yes, a great show, weather fantastic, evening entertainment usual high standard, except Saturday night when one hall ran out of beer. Did not manage to find the usual fellow motor homers but met some new ones and introduced them to this Forum as it was stuck in my windows for all to see. I thought the Native Americans were very good this year. My GPS Nav broke down about 5 miles before Malvern so I cocked it all up and finished up driving through the town and coming in a back way, "The pretty route" as they say. All good experience!!! Good Sunday lunch in Teme Hall as usual.

there you go, I managed to upload the pics eventually.

the big black cloud one was taken at about 10.30am on the Sunday morning - but it didn't amount to more than a few big spots of rain, the wind soon blew it away.

The view from the hills on the Saturday was fantastic.

Question?
I know there must be a mathematical formula or something for elevation/distance. How far to you think we were seeing on the day - Charles said about 20 miles but I would have thought it was much further!

Hi Carol

Great pics!

According to the topograph on top of Malvern you can see Hay Bluff which is 35 miles away.
