Northern Camping Weekend and more work on the car.

A big thanks to all who came to the Northern Area Camping Weekend!

What a great time!
At the start of the weekend it rained! We got to the site on the Friday afternoon to put up a gazebo over bench seating, only to have a fellow camper come across and give us another Gazebo as he was leaving and thought we needed it! So with 2 Gazebos covering 2 banches we were set for the weekend. !

Well I thought the wet weather was in for the night so we all went to a pub in Kirkby Lonsdale were we enjoyed a few beers and a nice home cooked meal!

Back at the campsite we enjoyed a few beers and a chat until bed!

The Wigwams were excellent and all enjoyed a good night sleep!! Up early to enjoy a sausage Butty before heading off into the lakes and to the very welcome SUNSHINE!! Yes even the sun turned up!

We met up with Marcus at the foot of Woodhead pass before a convoy of Triumphs made our way over the pass! We called in to Haverthwaite Railway where the cars got some serious attention from some very nice Chinese tourists! I enjoyed a slice of cheese pie and salad! Before we all drove back to the site, where we were met by Ed and his family!

A few more beers and talking about the days drive and Marcus’s car received a lot of attention (and rightly so as it is a superb motor)
The evening BBQ went rather well if not for a brief shower, I think I can honestly say the weekend was a success! I am now looking at organising next years weekend festivities, but due to a massive demand! I will be booking the Wigwams early! In-fact I will be booking the Wigwams in the next few weeks as they already have paid bookings for next year! So please if you are interested please PM me through the Club’s Forum!
