Posted 17 October 2011 - 08:21 AMThis year at Leeds I had to pick my other half straight up from work but we had to stop off at Ikea first
Secuity - " This car has got tents , sleeing bags , alcohol , drugs and white shelving in ! "
The other year rang a mate who was late to find out if he had arrived on site yet , the conversation was
"Are you in the car parks yet ? "
"No I am in Morrissons getting printer ink , its on special offer ! "
And one year I am sure one of our crew was late due to stopping off at a garden centre !
Posted 17 October 2011 - 09:01 AM2 years ago we had to stop for 3 hours so my mate could get his old land rover exhaust pipe changed!!
Posted 17 October 2011 - 06:11 PMI had to drive to a funeral several hundred miles in the wrong direction once. Dashed from the funeral back into the car and all the way back down again and past where I started off. Took me hours and hours but had to be done.
Posted 21 November 2011 - 08:43 PMSet off to Glasto 99 in a car we had all chipped in to buy especially for the trip, went over a cattle grid and lost the entire exhaust...doh!!
Not Glasto but on way to Knockengorroch a long time ago, via 2 Drunk in Public gigs, van caught fire in Liverpool, got that fixed and then had total electrics failure in the middle of nowhere in Scotland, after 4-hr AA wait, ended up getting trailored to nearest town, spent night in police carpark and finally got on site for Saturday lunch...
Posted 22 November 2011 - 11:14 AMleft for glasto this year at about 2 in the morning with a 5 car convey that i was supposed to be leading only thing was my old Bedford doesn't go that fast and they all wanted to get petrol .
ANYWAY of they go and i get a phone call an hour later where the f..k are you.
me i say well im still at the end of my road about 3 car lengths from my house and the vans on fire had to do a quick fix and meet up and off we went me with no indicators and the one of the windscreen wipers thought it have a holiday in somerset and is still there having a nice time oh and we got lost cos the wife was directing but we all go there eventually and had a great one mind you i had to fix the van to get home again but she broke down and we ended up going home on the back of a pick up i do love my beddie .......
