Some of my pictures.
@Big Si , some tantalising near-shots of a couple of Vapalux Handlamps.....
Well I finally found some time to take a few pics.
Think I'll be stumbling around in the dark tonight.
The 'flame shot'
Rice cooking for the curry, Mmmm...
Some good news for those who we're there, @presscall, @Spiritburner @kev_c is the van is fixed.
One set of points and a condenser later and I can use 5th gear.
Another bonus is I found the Radius silent cap snuggled in the bottom of the rear door.
Few other photos I'm afraid as @Big Si was such great company.
Looks like there were more lampies than stoves there or was just the sheer number of lamps they brought with them. Ha Ha
@nmp, I tend to find I only need a couple of stoves lit to make a good meal. Lampies struggle to find their way around in daylight and have a couple running just in case.
My currently only functional lantern as the pressure ones didn't want to play this weekend.
Oh and there's a stove in there somewhere.
Glad you've got the van sorted Simes.
@kev_c cheers kev, the trip back down the Fosse Way will be a little less embarassing then the journey up. A couple of tasty climbs that I struggled with on the way if you know the route.
Glad the Rascal got fettled and disgorged the Radius cap from its rear door as a ‘thank you’.
Good communal fun though, searching an acre of field, eyes downcast ...
Looks like a good time was had by all. Sorry I missed it.
Was there a stove chucking competition?
Who owns the Aussie Gloria 400 hanging lamp you photographed?
Using a trebuchet?
No stove wanging this year. I kept the wanger in the van but I cleared it out before the event & forgot to put it back in. However i was already undecided whether to do it this year as most attendees are of a certain age & many have ailments & afflictions.
I may have to think of some gentler challenge for next year.
Help a stovie out here! Which pic?
That was Henry Plews.
@Simes what was the problem with the rascal sounds grim? I must confess to owning a half dozen or so lamps as well as 60 odd stoves!
@nmp, lack of use really, probably stationary for nearly 2 years before I bought it last Sept.
Condenser and points were changed at Newark but is still missing somewhat, it gets a new distributor cap tomorrow.
A decent service wouldn't go amiss either, and I haven't checked all the plugs. A 'work in progress'.
It's great fun to drive mind.
@Simes Interesting looking Knife in the post of lamp and 00, Nerf gun for fire extinguishing?
