    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 :lol::doh:

    @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.

    @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?

    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.

    Ideas?

    @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!:oops::oops:[-o<[-o<[-o<[-o<

    @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.
