Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So Arjan the good news is I have decided to go to the Newbury sort out and will be taking the prospective roof section with me and pass it on to miketomcat if he is still going Mike I will pm you nearer the time for contact details if that's ok

On a side note have looked at going to the sort out for a lot of years but not made it as yet as its a 13/14 hour round trip anyways going this year so dam well looking forward to it

Regards Stephen

Thats fine with me. I'll have a measure up to see if it will go in the back of the ibex if not I'll bring the 110 and put it on the roof.

Awesome - just plain awesome !!

Looking really, really good !!!!

 

Now, excuse my ignorance / rudeness / etc......

I've had an offer for the roof to be collected and taken to France by one of our fellow forum members if he could collect it when he goes over and he will be goint to the Bristol area... (roughly 2km from the site of the original 'old sodbury sort out'

Is there any way we can make this work ?

I can co-operate with Miketomcat to bring the thing to Basinsgtoke (M3) or Andover (on the A303) if that helps?

Mike has come to the rescue and can store the hatch there until it is collected...

May I say, again, this is just absolutely brilliant !!!!!

Many, many thanks to you all !!!!!!

I'm reckoning on this being the longest forum relay to date :)

My guesstimate would be about 850 miles depending upon where Arjan lives in the Auvergne !

I did relay some Series parts to St Petersburg for an Iranian-built Pazhan 90 but I can't remember if that was via this forum! :ph34r:

Edit: yes it was!  What do I win? :rofl:
