Re: Farewell to 2Sticks

Hi Everyone, Just to let you know Jan and I attended Ben's funeral today. We went in our Bongo and Pat and immediate family went in hers so there was a Bongo Presence. Lovely service not religious although we did sing "Morning Has Broken" better known by Cat Stevens than as a hymn. Some sad moments ...

Re: Farewell to 2Sticks

Really sad news.
What on earth will meets be like without Ben's presence.
A real character who will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts are with you Pat, Terry and the rest of the family.
Jan & John.

Re: Auto Box Problem.

The drive I came off is level but the place the motor stalled is on a slight slope.
I have reversed many auto's up the slope including another Bongo with no problems.
I checked the ATF and that was fine.

Re: National Bongo Day 24/02/2013

Only one pub in Dunwich that I can see, The Ship Inn. Food looks good and the beer. Dunwich Heath is National Trust and they do charge £12 to park a "Motorhome" as previously stated. Knowing them I am sure that is what they would class a Bongo as!! We could meet at The Ship. Or I do know the people ...
