We could have had the biggest Awning Kite Ever Cheers NW

Well flippin heck (as they say up ere)...

Our pack up on Sunday was saved by the Northwest Mafia... Yes the hero's we No.1 for us... We had a largish Awning on the side of the Puck and whilst trying to determine a method of dismantling the Awning without joining everyone in flight by kite, the Northwest Mafia delayed there Convoy to hold a section of the awning to bring her down.. The wind was blummin high at that point. Goodness knows what we would have done without them..

Huge Thankyou Boys and Girls

The Sunncamp, lives on for another mighty adventure....

They are the best of the bunch.

Just make sure you stay on the right side of the N.W.Mafiosa.

Life could be so much stickier otherwise . . . . .

We were walking past a drive-away awning next to Dolly1 when it became apparent that the owner hadn't pegged the vehicle side of it before driving away. We nailed it down as best we could - hope it was still there when they returned :?

Yeah, just another thanks to the NW Mafia from me too for sorting out putting the awning down =D> Thanks Chell for the use of the 'ensuite' teehee. It was great too that Amie and me could join the convoy, we had a lot of fun coming back 8)

A big thanks as well to Harry who chased our last possessions that hadn't made it out of the awing and into the bongo as we held on to our awning for dear life as it also decided to fly home of its own accord and make its bid for freedom.
