Re: Roof boxes

All sounds good kbg and good luck whichever. Seeing NDC myself at the Bash to have a reversible passenger seat fitted :-) Update: So, I am on the way to installing a NDC roof rack, having taken the plunge and bought one at the bash. Unfortunately a hitch - we discovered on the day that a few of the...

Re: Off to Scotland

[/quote] Thanks for those links kbg. We're making our way to Skye in July via Ardnamurchan, then we thought of winding back from Skye by Plockton, Applecross, and Glencoe. I can't wait :D [/quote] I bet you can't! Sounds lovely. We will be back that way at the end of August visiting Mull, and maybe ...

Re: Off to Scotland

Possible your In Box is full. The system holds new messages in the ether somehow until you delete some old ones. :wink: Great to meet you at Stourport. :D Nah, Bob, I haven't had a single PM since I joined in April. Nada, inbox empty. Yes, great to meet you and a bunch of others at the bash, albeit...

Re: Off to Scotland

After leaving the Bongo Bash this June I am intending to make my way up to Scotland and explore as much as possible of that beautiful Country. I wondered if any of our Scottish members and others that have also visited can suggest any 'not to be missed' places and sights. Thanking you in anticipati...

Re: Off to Scotland

To Kandabongogirl, I have sent you a PM thanking you for the Skye information sheet, but am also thanking you via this in case you don't get the PM. It will definitely be used. Sorry not to have met you but hope to in the future :D Ref. PM – not sure what’s happened as no messages in my inbox – may...

Re: Weather Watch

Hoping to bring some (more?) sunshine with me on my day trip Saturday. And maybe some bongo-burgers for the barbie.

Brake Fluid / Brake Inspection

Read a number of old posts on this subject with interest, some locked, after doing a search on ‘brake fluid’ and ‘brake inspection’ and not coming across much on the forum in recent years. Wonder why no recent updates / thoughts on this. Bought my 2WD 2.5TD '96 AFT bongo earlier this Spring via Priv...

Re: Off to Scotland

Thanks all for your thoughts on campsite availability. Will chance it, as you suggest, in less popular areas, and once I know when I will be ready to go over to Skye, make enquiries then. Sounds good. If it looks (last minute) like we are not going to make the bash then I will PM you some Isle of S...

Re: Potential Bongo newbie - best layout for 3 kids?

Hi Mo3, Not sure where your Mid-Whales (see what I did there :wink: ) location is - you can PM me if interested in the following: I am scheduled to be in deepest Snowdonia tomorrow (Saturday) then southern Snowdonia border (Dyfi estuary) on Sunday. I have an old (95-99) diesel with a factory AFT and...

Re: Wow! What a a setup - A visit to BongoSpares, Sowerby Bridge

They are great aren't they!

And situated just off the half way point of my trans-pennine (M62) commute, so a nice detour at Saddleworth if there is a log-jam ahead on the way back home. In fact an attractive alternative to a Motorway service station rest stop.

Re: Use of the Marquee

Hi kbg, I'm on reception Sunday morning, so if you make it come and say hello so I can give you a proper thanks for your Scottish suggestions :D Oh, go on then, I will aim to wander over with a bacon and/or egg barm for you. :) We (kbg-quartet) hope to make it down if we can squeeze it into the wee...

Re: Off to Scotland

My general take on this (after much reading and listening, and a little recent experience): Well I think roughly speaking, outside of the Scottish (1/7 to 16/8) and England&Wales (15/7 – 2/9) school holidays you should be OK. Within these times then accessible and popular / trendy places (like Skye)...

Re: From one B-word to another

Oh yeah, how could I forget.... Yes brilliant! These are kbg's favourite (top 3) sources of dry cured bacon when out and about: 1. Roberts TJ and Sons, on Bala high street. 2. Setchfield RP, on East Keswick high street, 3 miles from Wetherby off A1(M). 3. Mettricks, on Glossop high street in the Da...
