I write this on behalf of myself and Dan Howden, who was the friend Kim :-)). Dan and I left mine nice and early to travel to Internal Fire for a Crank Up on the Sunday but we had to go via the Sodbury Sortout didn't we. I had a Lister G1 to collect that I had already bought plus a hydraulic lift, bit like a mini forklift, Dan thought that 300lb lift was not much but changed his mind when we used it to load the G1 into the trailer. Dan found his usual bargains including a nice little pump and some jacks etc. Saw several people on our way round, hope the drains are fixed Philip, your dry wit was missed Sunday. We did a second tour of the sale and then headed west. Getting into Wales now is not cheap especially when you are pulling a Trailer, I think Dan and I are now shareholders at £9.60 for the Van and Trailer. I can only assume that we must have sat on a Weigh Bridge to get that figure as I was fully loaded at the time with my L the G1 Dan's Pegson two very large water tanks and books for Roland and Paul Evans plus the Lifter and sundries that Dan had bought. Made the museum by seven in the evening having stopped for fish and chips and then after a little play with a large open crank Powell that Dan and I got going we both crashed out in Paul Static Caravan, thanks Paul a lot more comfortable than my van, at ten just as Roland started a Lister CS which I must say rocked me to sleep. Sunday started and stayed a nice day if a little chilly and Dan and I met a load of very mad but friendly Welshmen who brought their engines along. Garry Milward and his brother Steve brought the Lister N with them and a good time was had by all. The best bit of course was seeing what Paul and the others had achieved since my last visit at Easter and to see what else had been collected. The Sulzer runs as sweet as a nut and Roland's Petter sounds really nice driving a compressor up to 700 psi to start it. Opposite the Sulzer is now stood a straight eight Allen with Generator and when running sounds like London RT Bus on idle. Dan and I left at five and after a break and a queue on the M4 because of a accident got back to mine at eleven thirty, Dan then had a short, relatively speaking hop of forty five minutes to his house. Thank you Paul & Hazel for the welcome and the use of the Caravan and I love the Oily Rag, see you at Easter :-)) Pictures in the usual place later on today.
