M25 East June News

Hi folks, here we are in June and I hope by now that everyone's cars are back on the road and in fine fettle. Writing this at the beginning of May we've still got two area cars off the road. Kev n Lisa's Vitesse is currently in primer awaiting it's top coat and Chris's Vitesse is currently being patched up after some rather shocking revelations. Those of you that have seen the video will know lol. Anyway, I'm sure they'll both be like shiny new pins by the time you read this.
We've got our big trip to Laon coming up this month and I've sorted out a little extra visit for the Monday. The plan is to leave the campsite straight after brekky and drive about 50 miles to the Museum of the Great War in Peronne. Following that it's about a 20 mile drive to the 'Ocean Villa's' Tea Room in Auchonvilliers for lunch. That's the plan anyway, but if we see anything else of interest on our way we can always stop. We're planning to stop at our usual watering hole in Arras on the way down to Laon. Let's see if Barry can make it a hatrick of knocking the exhaust off ha ha. I'm sure he won't this time but if he does we're well practiced at getting it back on.
I did mention in last months write up about getting a Green Card and International Driving Permit etc for driving in France. This was all down to Brexit, but as it never happened, and is put off until at least October I don't think we need to bother with all that as we're still in the EU when we travel. I think.....
Let's go back in time for a while, back to a couple of shows we did in April. Firstly the Medway Festival of Steam and Transport at Chatham. Well, what a pleasant change, the weather was absolutely glorious. Summer dresses for the girls and T shirt and shorts for the boys. Unlike previous years when we've frozen our proverbials off. As usual there was loads to see, boats, cars, bikes, steam Punks, we especially liked the steam punk ladies didn't we Malc ha ha. Paul and Lesley regailed us with tales of their recent first trip in the Dandy, which went very well and is apparently slightly better than the tent ha ha. National Drive It Day was the next event and a couple of us took part in a nice run from Stowe Maries Airfield to The Museum of Power. It was blooming freezing at the Start point but the run was fun, even with the roof up. Not quite so cold at the finish but still a bit chill. Barry and Laura had been having trouble all day with the Vitesse not running properly and it finally gave up the ghost on the way home. Super Spanners Bazza soon had it up and running again with a swift fuel pump change by the side of the road. On May Day Bank Holiday we went to a little show in Sittingbourne. Once again it was blooming cold but there was a boot sale to mooch around and a few knick knacks were purchased.
That's about it for this month folks - it's nearly time to get the camping gear out !!
Cheers
John
