Re: Dispatch Expert, Scudo Hub Meetup?

I had a good little pitch which would have taken three of us.  Unfortunately a selfish big plastic box has parked 3 ft from my door and taken the space.  Site now filling up and still raining.

I hate camp sites!

Pissed off and might head for the hills!

Re: Dispatch Expert, Scudo Hub Meetup?

Yeech - thanks for trying to hold the fort OAT!

The rain has been biblical today. It's supposed to dry up later.

I should be over later on today - but feel free to head to the hills if they're calling!

Re: Dispatch Expert, Scudo Hub Meetup?

Great weekend!

OAT - really sorry not to have met you - spotted your van parked up outside the Craigdarroch Arms last night but guess you were actually in the pub or coach house like the rest of us. Hope you had a good time.

Griff - good to meet you guys and check out your palace on wheels - basically a 4 room house in the shape of a Citroen Dispatch :-) Hope the journey back to Durham was easy going.

Kenbw2 - great to have a blether today and meet your actual house smile Where'd you get to this eve?

Everyone get out the field ok!!??

I'll be back at Moniaive for the Folk Festival in May if anyone fancies that.

Re: Dispatch Expert, Scudo Hub Meetup?

Yeah, Great to meet up with you and Saturday was one of the best nights out I've had in a long long time. Depending when it is in May, I'm very likely to be there again.

Yes the three awnings I had on the dispatch were a bit over the top but I just wanted to check that they would all fit and fit they did. I may not use them all together again but I was pleased with the result and it kept the torrential rain out of the van, as all doors were sheltered. It is still a work in progress, as I take all the bits off my Scudo that blew up and put them onto my Dispatch.

Ken and Oat, Great to meet you two, enjoyed the company and the crack over the couple of days and like I said, if you need any brackets or shelves made or spacers machining, give me a shout and I can even help you fit them if need be.

Cheers, Griff.


If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same

Re: Dispatch Expert, Scudo Hub Meetup?

Ken and I stopped at Lock Doon last night.  Ken now heading south, I am parked up at Ballantrae harbour.

Sorry to have missed Ian but enjoyed a tour of Griff's mansion.  They will be after him for bedroom tax!  wink

Re: Dispatch Expert, Scudo Hub Meetup?

I had a great time, definitely glad I made the trip to meet you all, and I love an excuse to come to Scotland.

Here's some pics from the trip, including me and OAT at Loch Doon

Re: Dispatch Expert, Scudo Hub Meetup?

If I can sort the cooling and pish fuel economy of my one I may keep it since there really is not that many left on the road, therefore if one of these events happens again and I still have it (all based on getting the cooling/fuelling right) then It'd be great to come to an event like this. smile

Re: Dispatch Expert, Scudo Hub Meetup?

Just arrived back to base after Moniave.   

Went west to the coast and then headed south down the coast around Solway and down through the Lakes.  Particularly enjoyed Ballantrae and Kirkcudbright bays.  First visit to the Lakes in a few years confirms my feelings that it is being gentrified to the point of sterility.  Still some escape to the north and west but Windermere more like a budget Monte-Carlo.

Terrible mpg though as all done on back roads and hills. Just over 850m but used a tank and a half!  Worst I have ever seen.  I would expect to do that on a single tank full on less challenging roads.  Mind you, 30% slopes and wheel slipping gravel and water don't help.

Re: Dispatch Expert, Scudo Hub Meetup?

You've only just finished your trip! That's amazing! Hell, a tank n a half is a small price to pay for a what, 3 week outing? Think how much most people would pay for accommodation. Cheaper on veg oil too smile

The north of the Lakes is much nicer than the likes of Windermere, more remote. I find the Dales has a more authentic rugged feel, but the Lakes still has its own charm.
