“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Stonor Park

Not written in a while but things still progressing (amidst weddings and VW meets) - Ant fitted the new sink and waste pipe before becoming an E-Bay addict in search of a tap. He took out the Rock n Roll bed for me to paint, which I think now looks much better than the royal-blue-with-a-turquoise-tinge it was before. Trouble is the matching fabric holdall thing that hangs in front of the sink unit now doesn't match anything and I'm not really itching to get back on the machine to make a new one; the 'cottage-industries' interior will have to do for now.

Last weekend we went to Stonor Park to one of the most established VW rallies and got a new hot plate (thick stainless Steel 8" VW badge), a new handbrake handle and a new (but very old) knob for the gear stick. :-) not much else there and couldnt find the specialist insurance man, but Ant managed to add me to the existing policy and drop the cost down quite a bit... must be my most excellent driving ability -lol. We did, however, see a number of Red kites circling above which was impressive, as was the sheer number of campers in the park, all lined up in the long grass at various stages of rework. Roll on next weekend... Isle of Wight music festival!!! Sorry Bee, you cant come this time, from what I hear, you will need to rest ahead of the Newt beer festival in July :-)
