    Vanditos' Vanjam...

    Photo's can't convey what a brilliant chilled out weekend this was... so I'm not gonna try. Barely used the camera as I was too busy enjoying the company.

    If I'd organised it you'd get a field and that'd be all. Thanks to the main movers in the Vanditos we had a lovely campsite, music all day long, stickers, marshmallows toasting on sticks, pop corn cooked over an open fire, stickers, a goody bag that even had a couple of packs of Palma Violets in it (!), and a marquee with a fridge and free beer. Simply the best weekend away that I've had in a long time; certainly since Shakey shut down.
    Add in a selection of gorgeous custom vans, really friendly laid back folk and... I even won a trophy. Being the Vanditos was it for "Best engineering", "Most accurate restoration", or similar? Nah, 'twas for "Best sticker"! I think the couple who won the highly coveted and hotly contested trophy for "Deepest shag" were probably the heroes of the weekend tho' (they even measured it at over 50m.m.).
    All in all, just wanna do it again.

    Thanks to Jo Robbins for the pic' of us with the truck.

    I wish I'd known this was on...then I could have been even more disappointed that I haven't finished the Econoline still!

    It would have been the icing on the cake to have seen you there in the Econoline... especially if you'd joined in the late night conga 'round the campsite

    Was a real old fashioned do, no show and shine, no big name bands, no program of events - just turn up, chill out and chat/wander/drink/chat/wander... took us two days to make our way 'round the site!

    As above - was a great weekend, and believe it or not all for a fiver !!

    The organisers aren't in it to make any money, just bringing like-minded folk together - see you next year


















    Quick video of the lineup here:

    I was supposed to be there (in a car) but lack of transport (the bloody car broke) meant I missed it.... Gutted is not a good enough word.
    But still The NSVA's Truck-In is only a fortnight away........ Time to do it all over again.
