Elveston Steam Rally..2011

Postby jackdaw » Mon Jun 27, 2011 6:21 pm

There's a few of us active UK teardropers going to be getting together at the weekend 8) 8)

We're having a little convoy of 5 trailers turning up around lunch time on Friday,
and Badgestar should be joining us early evening...

I'm really looking forward to it...

We'll be with the T'ird , Jess is taking the Coppertop. Chris and Sue are taking their new teardrop Daffy, Geoff and MRS woman are taking their Littleguy, Dan's taking the Roswell, and the Badgestars are taking Wanda.

I'll post up some photos when we get back....but if you want to come and join us....you'll be made very welcome :D :D

All the best, Dave

Sorry for holding out on you..... We had an excellent time at Elveston, and last weekend we went to Sourport on Severn steam rally, and then this weekend we stayed in Rotherwick, for my brothers wedding....Three weekends away in the trailer on the trot, and loving every minute....almost.
I took loads of photos at Elveston.... some of the convoy, loads of the camp, and the antics we got up to. Unfortunately some scally stole my camera on the Saturday night, so I lost all my photos :cry: :cry:



Here's one of Sue posts from TCGB,

It's my pleasure Madjack :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
We don't have loads of teardrops over here yet, but are numbers are growing, and we do seem to have some sweet trailers. It attracts a fair bit of attention when you have 5 teardrops travelling together on the motorway.....
Most folk have never seen a teardop, so when they see 5 I'm sure they're totally stunned..... :shock: :shock: :shock:
