    Well I've done me best, Steve, but the old memory's not what it was. :)

    Any missing names, please let me know...

    Hi
    I have only a few photos that may be of any interest, once more children took more pictures of dogs than anything else.

    Since retiring Trevor has gone downhill fast :lol:

    I was barbequeing and frying some tatties, when Ross turned up like a spiv (Traceys phrase not mine) with a suitcase full of goodies.

    More to follow.

    Hi
    David brought a jet pack to light. He insisted it was a stove but I'm no fool, I saw Steve Austin flying one back in the seventies.

    It took a bit of starting but he got it going a nice blue. I'm sure someone has a picture of that but my camera disapeared in small hands after capturing the obligatory flare up shot.

    Yep! - a beautiful flame pattern, even if I say so myself.

    1275946243-M2A_blue_flames.jpg
    I hadn't noticed the arrangement of longitudinal flame slots along the burner beneath the vapouriser (sorry, generator!) as well as the pair either side of the central point. A generator that big and heavy needs something significant to keep it hot during use... :whistle:

    Shortly after my arrival on the Wednesday, I got the Coleman oven up and running and did a round of pizza. Left to right: me, David (Skeeves), Ian (Ian), Nigel (K180)

    1275947980-1.JPG

    Nick's peculiar Svea 100 with an improbably large silent burner mounted on it. His hat, mug titanium and regular plastic spoon/fork utensil. Oh yeah, there was beer too

    1275947988-2.JPG

    My little encampment, travelling light and for functional cooking, so nothing of a display. On the grill/barbecue my Enders 9061D

    Enders, Ref Gallery

    Under the barbie, my British Military No.12 with an Optimus regulated silent burner installed. The comprehensive windshielding enabled it to be used even when the wind picked up one day and simmered like a charm

    1275947994-3.JPG

    The MSR XGK II doing what it does best

    1275948001-4.JPG

    Coleman oven on the No.12. The overhang over the tank was a bit alarming but the stove didn't go into thermal overload. The all welded stainless construction offered a reassuring safety factor, that and the kero fuel

    1275948012-5.JPG

    Great time, even though I'd to head back on the Friday.

    John

    It's good to see David pulling a David.

    Nick, what's the little green tent in the middle of your tent whore display?

    Ian you didn't camp under that little green tarp?

    Love the gas grill, never seen anything like that before.

    Mike, very cool red convertible.

    I'm still recovering from Newark, I left yesterday, just before Trevor, last to leave. I really enjoyed my time there, and I have learned a lot.

    Hi All,

    Not sure I have any photos that would be different or better quality than what's already posted.

    But to everyone who was there thanks for the great weekend and companionship, and big thanks for Ross for organising (his modesty causes him to claim that he didnt really do anything when I thanked him personally).

    To everyone who wasn't there - your loss :lol:

    Cheers, Graham.

    Quite so, and there's no need to be at all coy in using the word, Gary - witness this from 'The Chap'... ;) :lol:

    Another cracking Newark weekend! Lots of old friends and some new ones as well.Proper Newark weather over the weekend with the best electric storm I've seen in UK for years late on Saturday night.

    I slept under the tarp for 3 nights (very nice it is too. :D ) and shared Mrs M's new tent Fri. & Sat. nights.

    Thanks to everyone for making it what it is and, as ever, Ross for getting it all together.

    Yes Alan, Ian has been replaced by a clone.

    Gone are the huge scout-type tents, large gas heaters, ovens and even last year's converted horse-box.

    The clone has gone over to sleeping under a tarp and packing all gear into a single rucksack.
    Lightweight is now the byword and yes, he even has a titanium spork! :shock:
