EVW Campout 2010

Post by Dubmatix » Mon May 24, 2010 9:08 pm

What a weekend. The sun shone on the first ever EVW Camp-out which was the biggest gathering of EVWs that we've had!
I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did! We tried our new awning out...putting it up in the dark whilst receiving excellent assistance (and some ''handy tips' (!) ) from the already assembled crew.
Some of the highlights for us were, in no particular order:
  • Excellent awning training given by Lisa - your brief on how to take it down made it easy.
  • Craig's Homebrew beer (I'm taking some too next time!)
  • Pete dressed as a German firefighter (sadly my camera was flat...damn!)...Next time gadget!
  • Meeting more of you guys, always an experience!
  • Forgetting my sandals. - Grrrr
  • The campfire! - The everlasting flame...it's the campout olympic torch!
  • The decision to make the camp-out annual, lets do this again!
  • The bizarre transformation of Alex into a 1970's children's cartoon character using simple EVW components.
  • Campsite Tips, few of which i remember!
  • New thread possibilities for the forum! Of which there were many...
  • Sheringham in the sunshine
A big thank you to all that attended, much fun was had and hopefully we can do it again next year! If you couldn't make it this time, give it a go! :)

Pics to follow shortly.... :D

We had a brilliant time too! Apart from the sun burn = still a bit stingy today!!
Never thought a gathering of Kats could take so much out of a man
What a fantastic weekend Homebrew, heat and lots of laughter! What more do you need

Hi Guys

Well trust me I was thinking about you and the Campout all weekend. I am stoked you had such amazing weather and a good time. I took Friday off did a solid 10hrs on the van, swapped the amps around in the van - had to make some brackets - sprayed some grey primer onto the tinware (hope it can take the heat), cleaned the sloping panel infront of the engine ready for some sound-deadening material.

Off to Halfrauds tonight to get some spray engine enamel to finish the tinware. Think I have fallen into the classic trap of starting too many things at the same time and not finishing anything! I have also half-applied sound-deadening to the cab doors, looking rather sad with door-cards off and plastic membrane peeled back.

Really looking forward to seeing the EVW Campout pictures, and I still havent seen Impd's firetruck!

Cheers

Mike

Hi Guys

Well the pictures are awesome. I feel a little ashamed Helga and I didnt make it. Right I am off to the garage for the final rubbing down of the tinware and last topcoat to get us back on the road.

Cheer
