well it is probably chez Raistlin but there was only 3 of us to witness the first ever one, and it was no mean feat to adopt Mikes powerfolds on the day, but it had to grow from there

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

I am the proud owner of a full height Porta Potti, proper dual tank job. (You all wanted to know that didn't you?). For the ladies. It used to reside in my camper van. I can bring it along to Teddy Bears if somebody can provide a small tent in which to house it.

Thanks to Rob and co for an enjoyable nano meet again. Weather turned out great for us today. Also a big thanks to Col, who spent most of his time sorting my car. Looking forward to the next one in April. ;)

Well that was a long day but I bloody enjoyed it :D I set off about 5 O'clock to go to James'sss & was well ahead of schedule but made an arse of the junction off the M67 & spent 20 mins trying to get back on the right track which I did but from the wrong end :confused:
Then it was off to pick John up from North Wales & then down to the meet at lightening speed :shock: & arguing with the satnav all the way she's not the brightest that woman (I'm sure James has it set on most scenic route :mrgreen: )
I spent some time socialising but with my new chocolate tool kit in hand (thanks James) I set about dismantling people's cars............I made sure they weren't watching & then dashed off to let them work out how to rebuild them :mrgreen:
I drove back to John's & then James took over back to his place, I stopped for a cuppa & then hit the highway & was home for 11.00 so not bad though the last 20 miles was a real struggle :bed:

Thanks to all involved & everyone else but special thanks must go to James for the miraculous way he got me a 700 mile trip at no cost to myself HOW'D HE DO THAT? :shock:

I was relating the day to my wife this morning when I passed the comment that we looked a bit like the waiting room in a casualty department with all our ailments etc.

The image created has given her the best laugh in years. :lol:
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

So, with a little bit of prep we have now shown that the Ultimate Remote can be fitted comfortably in a nano-meet day :) Especially if the car's wiring conforms to the RAVE wiring diagrams ;)

Glad to hear that you are happy with it Les :D

We also know now that door opening must be set for one button press not two, and MK2's have their own peculiarities! ;)

Well as stated by everyone it was a very very nice meeting.. But ----------

I couldn't help but notice a lot of work was being done by a small willing group.. And therein lies a future problem I think.. I.E. So how do we equal out the work load?

I know the people I am talking about wont complain, and that they enjoy helping people, but it is a case of willing horses and we need to find some way of preventing them getting overloaded.. :(

I am, if you like, trying to ensure the workers get to enjoy some free time mixing socially.. :)

No matter how much people like to help, Spending the entire day with your head under someones dashboard isn't fun. . :roll:

Well I am willing to try and learn to do some things or even be tea boy!! :tea: Can also help with the cooking, I make a mean banana dessert but needs alcohol and brown sugar.... so more of a saturday night if camping thing! can even provide a 6-9 person 3 bedroom tent if needed!
I can stick my head under a dashboard but either:
A)Nothing will be done.... :bed:
B)You won't like what will be done... :oops:
C)Car sets fire and blows up.. :oops:

Now then if you want windows installing, pc's cleaned out etc I'm your man!
