Hi Speedy.
Thanks for the offer but we are being picked up as soon as the plane
arrives and being drivin to the army barracks at Blandford. I would have
loved to have stopped for a chat and a brew as i don't get to meet very
many other 300 nutters in this part of the UK. We only have Dubweisser
and Ride_on in Belfast. If you want to PM me your phone number, i will
give you a ring.
Cheers Mark.

Hi Lads.
Spent a cracker weekend in Blandford Dorset. It was great to see my Grand child for the first time in person
Somerset and Dorset are two beautifull counties. Also tried the local soup.Something called
Badgers fickin Fox {i kid you not } and the scrumpy :lol: :lol: :lol:
Took a boat trip around Poole harbour and the Islands.
All in all it was a great trip and sorry i didn't have time to catch speedy.
Cheers Mark.

No worries, I was fast asleep anyway! The islands are really nice to visit. Firkin Fox is a great beer, I'm a big fan of Badger beers :D

Nice one, Mark! Get him a nice 1991 340 and tuck it away for 17 years - it'll only be 39 years old when he starts to drive :-)

Cheers
