Only a quicky as I'm currently having to deal with other matters :roll: but just wanted to say what a great time we all had and from memory we took on about 6 new members 8)

I've got a few pics that if I get time I'll bung up :wink:

Great to see everyone and thanks again to Rob for sorting this one out, I think I must have a record almost in my Berlingo as we did 53 miles with the Range Extender (my big Genny) in the back and Terry H and his electric bike and other bits and bobs, I suspect we where close to 400kg on the payload front.

The Range Extender did a smashing job on recharging the berlingo and while I was concerned that it might have been a tadge loud and smelly ( chip oil smelly) neither of these proved to be correct and while it could be heard it was fairly unobtrusive compared to other sounds at the show (say the big block V8 Chevy with no exhausts that was being run up every now and then) :wink:
