How did it go?
Well, if you like looking at tractors, it was fine - plenty to look at!

Classic cars - apart from our Land Rovers, there were three!! A moggy, an old Ford, and a mini-van.

There were a few commercial vehicles lined up, one traction engine and probably about 25 stationary engines as well, but most of the showground was empty!

There weren't as many sellers/stalls as usual, but the big tool stalls were there.

We were told off on the Friday night for having an 'open fire' and had to put it out.
The H&S guy was adamant that it was in our terms and conditions of entry - it wasn't, I checked - no mention of fires at all, so I flagged him down and asked him to check. He never got back to us so we spent a cold evening huddled round a Tilly lamp before an early night.

We did light the firepit on the Saturday night, with windbreaks around up to hide it :whistle: and had a good evening talking nonsense.

Next year's date has been moved forward a week, so will fall on bonfire weekend, and I think the feeling in our camp is that because of that, and the possibility of no fire, some of us might not bother going :shrug:

Let's see what 2022 brings :tiphat:

Shame, it was good when I made it to the last one. It's also a good time for using excess leave....

In better news, I have a door and most of the roof. Hopefully have a kitchen in the next week or so. Just curious as to how long the screws will be to fasten the units up over about 3 layers of dot & dabbed plaster board.
