  1. I use that one and it is connected permanently to my battery at present as I try to use the car on dry days. Unfortunately the car just sits on the drive in all weathers and the cold can play havoc with the battery, hence keeping it constantly topped up.
  2. Last year, my son who lives/works in London expressed an interest in participating in the London to Brighton Run. My father, who passed away many years back, was brought up in London and then his family moved down to Brighton where he became a member of 'Brighton Shiverers' ... back in the day, and where he was schooled. It seemed an appropriate opportunity to mark the fact that that 'history' led to our existence ... so to speak. Not the most exciting of drives for a hoodie but we had a great time, I drove down, my son drove back and we spent the evening in London celebrating.
  3. Now those look nice and comfortable ....... very nice.
  4. The hoodie I drive is now about 24 years old and I have owned it for about 6 years. It has its numberplate across the nose cone and no-one has ever made any negative comment ... to date!

    Camping trailer

    A very good day to you all. My daughter has just bought a LARGE family tent and now needs to have a towbar fitted to her car. She is also looking for a large camping trailer with a hard top/cover in order to put cycles on top. Anybody have one that you might hire out or are considering selling? I would prefer to deal with a fellow club member than a random ebayer. Many thanks. I am located in Sutton Cold field.
  6. Having had to miss the August Wales Road Trip for the past couple of years ... EXTREMELY disappointed - our children and their families can only go away during school holiday time and we all meet up abroad as a large family. This May trip would be an outstandingly brilliant alternative ... but we have planned a wedding anniversary trip away .... How can such happy family events cause such disappointments?! At this rate I'll forget how to drive my hoodie! Have a superb 'weekend' one and all - it will be a fabulous event.
  7. Took my car to that a couple of years ago - it was a great event. Lots to see and extremely well attended. A good day out.
  8. Darn and blast ... we are booked for an outdoor concert with a group of friends that weekend. Would have loved to have attended this event. Did enjoy the London to Brighton run though!
  9. Well, I'm confused ... When I had to complete all my details for entering this year's London to Brighton Run, I found information of about ten other Robin Hood vehicles. I emailed Stephen Smith (organiser) to ask if I could make contact with other Robin Hood entrants in order to make some arrangements for meeting up for the run and I received the reply below. Apparently I was the first with a Robin Hood to enter! I can only assume, that somehow I opened a document/folder/page which showed entrants from a previous year! There is a promise of a free photograph if there a few of us
  10. Afternoon Rich …. not got plans for an alternative/additional Wales Road Trip have you? I'm gutted to have to miss your August one - yet again - but would love to be able to make another of your fabulously well organised trips, should there be one in the pipeline! Alan
  11. £99! Not an amount I would normally consider … but as a one off … I'm going for it.
  12. Many thanks for all your help. Children have said to leave it to them! Will see what happens!
  13. I have been looking forward with great excitement to this year's Wales Road Trip, as I had to miss last year's. Our children … who still have to work for a living, in order to pay my pension … have once again booked a French Country Home for all of us (15) to holiday together as a full family - for a week in August. They have to choose the month/dates as, unlike us, they have to return to work after the summer break. When have they booked? You are correct … yep … that week of the road trip! To ease my very great pain, one of my lads has arranged for he and I to participate in
  14. Many thanks Dan. I have spoken to my 'kids' about my request for a decent camera to record trips and they are also researching. When they have got back to me I'll be in a position to respond to your excellent suggestions. Thank you very much.
