    If I can get the little red car up and running by then I'll be in it, other than that it's the white thing which I've just cleaned so hopefully it'll stay fine. :)

    If I get a pass I’ll need to clean the Panzer as it’s just filthy :(

    Got the 190 finished off today so may come up in it on Sunday, obviously weather dependent. :)

    A bit gutted about having to tax it midway through the month but I've not driven it for 3 months so probably worth it.

    Always worth it Dave, would be great to see it eventually - not that there’s much wrong with the white one mind!

    May be Plan B John. Just looked at the weather forecast and we have snow warnings for the weekend. :eek:

    I'll just leave it for now and make a decision on the day.

    A lateral thought :rolleyes: You could put a tow bar on the Es thingy and tow a trailer with the Cossie on it, keeping the C in a concorse condition. Or leave the Es behind and tow with the X-Trail :rolleyes:

    Alastair could do the same with the cargo wagon and SL. Craig could also do with the golden wagon and the CL.;);) Carl, when he returns, could tow his caravan to visit from yonder parts at future meets ;)

    Looks as though it's going to be snowing, but I'm going anyway, even if in the daily.

    Great Peter, unless it’s a thick blanket I’m there in the 63- as I said the winters are still on and that’ll probably be their last run out before summers go back on...

    As my car is under a few inches of snow this morning, even though it's under a carport, and it's still coming down quite heavily, I'll be giving this a miss today.

    I won't be there in April either (something else on) so my next meet will be the 20th May. :(

    Don't blame you Dave, my car is outside currently under around 10cm of snow, the drift at the end of our drive however is probably close to double that.
    Think I know what I'm going to be spending my morning doing, walking round te village and gritting the paths
