Working hard on the design side at the minute... have the benefit that when I've designed it, I can get huge template made for my cutting list as I have access to a 4ft plotter. Have the majority of the timber I need... just short of a trailer, so scouring Ebay and the likes for one.

My Deli is currently doing 12.43 miles to the gallon, so I think that may need a little attention or it'll be a very expensive weekend :oops:

Just sent an email to see if there are any spaces left. Anyone know if they allow dogs as I know it's a working farm. We'd have to bring the pooch with us. It would be nice to see a few Micro Caravans to see just what ideas other people have when it comes to making the best out of a limited space.
My mate wants to come down with his tent, as he's just about to start building his own and wants ideas. Is camping allowed in same area as where Teardrops will be?
They said "Smile, things could be worse"....

So I smiled, and things got worse.

Update is, I've been told there is space for us, but not in the same area as those who booked early and dogs are allowed as long as on lead at all times.
So I just need to get hold of my mate and see if he wants to come down with us. He's just started building his own Teardrop and is interesetd in chatting with others for ideas.
Hopefully see you all there.

We had a great time at the gathering. The weather turned out great..................... after the first night.

8) 8) It was wonderful meeting the other like minded builders.........mostly :lol: .

What a great bunch of teardropper. We had a total of seven trailers, although only five of us were together.

Here's a link to our photos of the event.
I didn't get any photos of the guys trailers in the other field. :oops: :oops:

looking forward to seeing the group again :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Hi all

Just thought I'd put in my two cents worth and say what a great weekend with great people. Really enjoyed it (apart from the weather on Friday evening) and was relieved when it turned out that no one else had gone full on for the fancy dress!!

Here's a few of our piccies:

I wonder how many will be at the Second Annual Stiff Upper Lip Gathering.

Courtesy of Dave we seem to have added another addict form the Delica community.

Looking forward to the next one.
