Just by way of an update and a bump - looking at getting the local pub band involved for a bit of a short set if people are genuinely interested in having some live music and making lean a bit more towards 'Pond-Fest' :lol:

Sounds like it’s all coming together nicely :thumleft: should even get a decent amount of OC media content :D

I’ll be a bit of a late-comer care of work (hoping to leave around 2-3) and the 2 hour drive but am looking forward to meeting everyone and getting Flos out for her first post makeover road trip!

No worries - worth noting the BBQ will be burning all afternoon 8) so no worries, arrive when you can!

Its only a 150 miles each way.....Why not. Though if it is raining I may have to seek barn shelter. My car doesn't like to get wet..... :lol:

Pencil me and Naomi in, I will make sure she is off shift. What time can we arrive from? Even though your about 3 hours away, we will be up from 6 so will possibly hit the road by 7 to make the most of the quiet roads.

I am only driving 650 miles around the perimeter of wales for the week before, not in the rx8 though.....

That's the spirit!

People can arrive early, no sweat - not like I'm going anywhere.

Parking is in the field and the barn will be full, so unfortunately you'd need to bring your own gazebo for that! :lol:

Are you able to sleep in it comfortably then? Or is it just a gimmick for when you pull over on a night time for a rest?

You're still going to have to draw them a map Dan - either that, or tally how many times RX8s drive past the end of your drive looking lost!!
Sadly not going to be available that day otherwise I'd come to say hi to everyone - looks like a promising session!

Make sure it's nice and big. I missed Robs drive when I went to Wales.. It was the only cattle grate and had bales in the field.. Literally couldn't miss it.. Was too focused on the road ahead looking for it. 😂😂 At least I wasn't driving so I can blame my Dad!

I mean.. You may as well have done a full nuts and bolts restoration by now.. Knowledge is pretty useful. I would also say I owe you cheesecake but it won't last the trip in the 8 sadly...
