Wish I could visit you Clive,but our reponsibilities with animals must take precedence.Living on a small farmlet is greatFollowing the lifting of all restrictions and border closures and such nonsense, if anyone is interested or able to visit us this year, please let us know by posting here your names, in an orderly fashion, to give us an idea in advance. As usual, it’s free to members, their families/guests.
The best dates for us will be the last 2 weeks in August 2020, but the exact dates are to suit you guys. It’s always a free and easy approach for us, come and go as you please.
It’s first come first served as far as accommodation is concerned. There’s room for about 5 Land Cruisers in the garden, camping welcome, maybe more at a push and there’s 3 or 4 en-suite rooms up for grabs (depending on whether sis-in-law is still staying with us).
We were hoping that 2 more en-suite rooms would be finished, but the lockdown has hit that construction program hard, so it’s unlikely that they will be ready. There’s always an inflatable bed option on the floor or dossing on a settee... depends how fussy you are
If you put your name down, please PM me your phone number so we have a way to contact you if plans change either way. I’ll reply with my number so you’ll know who the hell is phoning you at 01:00AM on a Sunday... JK
We desperately hope that travel will be permitted by then, we kicked this off in 2015 (IIRC) and most who’ve come here have enjoyed I think, we don’t seem to have had any complaints - yet...
It‘s usually a couple of weeks (less your travel time each way) of day-trips in our locality which, for the benefit of newcomers, is scenic hills and mountains, forests, maybe a castle visit if that suits, and a trip down to the local river for some BBQ and a cold one or two. Nothing extreme, unless your name is Nick, or you really do insist on some grief.
Did I mention BBQ? There’s usually a fair bit of that going on.
So here’s looking forward to some responses (if any) we’ll miss you guys if nobody shows....
Iv been taken off the list Then
I really like the look of that Mike, it would be just the job on our hill, specially with 4x4 on some of the steeper parts of our grass. I like the low and forward position of the deck too, great for nosing under bushes and stuff like we have here.
Hi Pat, good to hear from you mateWish I could visit you Clive,but our reponsibilities with animals must take precedence.Living on a small farmlet is great
but it does tie you down,but I guess you keep pretty busy with your maintenence.Are you still doing lots of overseas travel?
I'll look forward to seeing some more photos of your family and home.Cheers from Pat.
I wasn't looking to buy, the bloke at the country store 5 mins from us, who I know well, saw me studying one they had in part ex.I really like the look of that Mike, it would be just the job on our hill, specially with 4x4 on some of the steeper parts of our grass.

The choice on offer here is very limited. Mainstream stuff only and even that is not much of a range.
I look with envy at some of the US youtube channels, with guys using stand-on zero-turns and what have you, knowing full well there’s no chance to get one of those here...
I’ll be looking at the Stiga catalogue next, but not hopeful there’s a stockist here. Germany’s always the nearest place for stuff like that, but then there’s all the faff of import duty and whatnot. I’ll never understand why that is, we’re supposed to be in the EU.
You guys are spoiled in the UK
Wow, that’s much more than a maybe, great stuff Jon1. David - maybe, depending on border controls;
2. Jon Wildsmith - Chunnel booked
3. Chas, . . . . . . if I can get a new kidney before September.

Just updating my status.
I have no idea what my route or itinerary will be yet Clive, just that I have a Chunnel booking to leave these shores on the afternoon of the 13th August and that I'm heading in your direction looking out for interesting places to visit along the way. The rest is a work in progressWow, that’s much more than a maybe, great stuff Jon
It would be good to see you again Mike, if you can make it. Time flies at an alarming rate, must be sign of getting old (er) ....cant believe its been 5 years from the 1st visit, well if (big if ) i am still on furlong i might pop down to Romania to see you and your family but i have problem i can only use the car for this trip as the LC is off the road for repairs
Like I said Jon, it’s a free ‘n’ easy, come and go as you please.I have no idea what my route or itinerary will be yet Clive, just that I have a Chunnel booking to leave these shores on the afternoon of the 13th August and that I'm heading in your direction looking out for interesting places to visit along the way.
