I had fun riding in the trolley. Phil did get some funny looks, but he stopped them dead when he proudly said "mine doesn't scream an shout!".
nice one Phil.
On the way back we past the Hall and Woodhouse brewery, the home of Badger beer, a quick stop for a photo.
Next year we will hopefully pop in to the visitors centre for a look around.
The one thing that I look forward most to coming to GDSF is the huge lardy cake that Shelley's bakery sell.
I was served by Bexx.
Two tanks playing in the military section.
The chap on the stage played to great music, his name is Adam Sweet. Cd's are available, I don't know where from but they are out there.
Getting a bit thirsty we came across the Authentic Lemonade stall. Phil recognised one of the chaps behind the stall, an asked "did you have a stall at Pickering Steam rally? "used to" said one of the chaps. Phil took his sunglasses off an the chap... whose name was Nick recognised Phil. Nick used to bring us free cups of lemonade across to the tractor pulling track when we was commentating. Nick very kindly gave us a couple of freebies for old time sake.
Cheer's Nick an Chris.
The next day Hue an I watched the pulling an I had a great idea.
Well what a thing to end on. Fantastic time by all down in Dorset. Nine nights in a tent, that's a record for us. Phil has been asked again next year, SO!! there is a lot of planning to be done for next year. One mission is to get a gas fridge, due to the 12/24 volt cool box soon flattened the leisure battery even with a solar panel to keep it topped up. The milk turned to cream cheese an my cider went warm... NOT GOOD!
(Its sorted! while I was working on this page on 04/09/2016 Phil has just bought one.)
On our way home I pointed out to Hue Stonehenge.
BIG THANKYOU too Norman n Madeleine Young, Mark-Gass Brown aka Squirrel, Ned an Paul Parker also letting Hue have ago on the sledge, all the sledge crew, all the pullers and my best mate Phil for taking Hue an I and looking after us.
Here's to 2017.
