    Default Off to the Pod!

    I'm off to the 'mini in the park' event at Santa Pod shortly for the weekend. My mates restoring an original Monte Carlo Rally mini and he's obsessive about them. For me, it's an excuse to take MLC Jnr camping (and it actually falls on a weekend off).

    They've got a big outdoor showing of the Italian Job and a live band, so with a few beers, should be ok.

    But having said that, as I type this it's lashing down outside (as usual). I can feel a search for a travelodge coming on

    Mini's are great, i think most people at some stage in their life should have an old Mini, they are barrel's of fun.

    I had an 850 on an S plate, then a 1275GT engined Mini Van which last 4 days before i rolled it! Oh happy days.

    if i wasnt so fat i might buy another one just for fun!

    Well, not long back. What can I say, other than it was an experience for a novice camper like me!!

    Entrance to the camp site! It was like this all around the tent by late evening time!




    MLC Jnr takes a break from the rain in the car


    All those sweets make him put on a few pounds



    Apparently, this mini is the fastest road legal mini 'in the world' NOS powered with a claimed top speed of 240mph


    No smoking please



    As you can see, weather was terrible, but little 'un enjoyed himself, which is what counts. I am very well acquainted with mud now. I think I'll be hanging the tent pegs up in the future, hotel room here I come.

    Still at least you had a good time amongst the mighty Mini's. I used to have a 1980 Mini Van and it was quality.
