    We had hoped to be there this year, but extensive April travel and various other business for each of us made it infeasible. I still hope and expect to go again within the next couple of years.

    Arrived and encamped. Kev and family across the way.

    Wee bit damp in Newark but finally arrived. Although I need to find an ignition doctor for 'the van'. Misfiring like crazy most of the way up.

    Sat listening to the whisper of the Geniol and feet toasting in front of the bowlfire with a can of Pedigree.

    Inflatable sofas are the future folks....:D

    Already missing it and everyone. My day at the moment alternates between feeling so dizzy and sick that I just want to die in a corner and sleeping.
    Plenty of pictures everyone. Catch you all next year.

    Will get up at 4 am tomorrow (that's 3 am in the UK!), hoping to arrive in one piece early afternoon.

    See you all there!
