See you there....

Thanks for that conformation DM. I'll be there for 0900 ish provisions in hand. Look forward to seeing everyone there. Ian, if you want to drift past mine on the way - or get get me to pick you up leaving your car free for others, just advise. In case you're just going to meet us there, we'll be the chaps with the RIBS, you know the things, big and bouncy looking with engines on the back......just in case you've forgotten what a RIB looks like

I'll have to see if Ged will get up early to retrieve my Rib. Hopefully we'll be there.

Roll on March

Don't think I'll be there in time for this one. We dont leave until Saturday AM and as I HAVE NO RIB (bloody hell! no one has told me that, well not in the past two minutes anyway) I can't see the point in getting up at 0500 to rush down.

Alright, there's no need to keep telling us that you're ribless. It's getting a bit wearing now. There are a few people turning up who do have ribs so your presence is required at 0930 you wuss. Anybody would think you're from the south.

Holy s.h.i.t

What the hell do you mean, you don't think you'll make it ? Get a grip man.....I know it's been a month or so since you became ribless, but I didn't expect you to have turned into a nancy so quickly ? Oh well, I suppose if your too much of a "Southern Wooss" (well phrased D.M) we'll just have to make do with Deb's company as I'm bloody sure she wouldn't come online moaning and whining !!!. "See you there Deb's", Helen as well I would imagine..........you enjoy your lie-in mate....

P.S.

Phil you have a good 5 hour journey up, and you David, must take you a few hours as well. That's commitment for ya.....

Thanks for your good wishes, mate - actually it'll be nearer 7 hours if I come up Friday evening, though it took 9 hours last time! But, as of course you and I are aware, Graeme,it's all about the taking part. You know it would be so much easier to say bo****ks to it and stay in bed when one thinks how much easier the 350 mile journey would be without stopping constantly to walk the labrador and without the nagging worry of ratchet straps working loose or trailer tyres puncturing. Oh and let's not forget the inevitable traffic chaos on the M11 on a Friday afternoon one is forced to contend with, compounded by the congestion on the Leicester section of the M1 and, to crown it all, the misery of the M6 north of Stoke.

And then, of course, one has the expense of an evening meal at the Little Chef in Halkyn to factor in, not to mention the truly outrageous fuel consumption of one's Range Rover to finance. Such tribulations are but nothing, however, when weighed against the pleasure derived from spending quality time in the company of the North West Ribsters. Ribsters who will make the effort to get there because they know a Southerner has - Ribsters who appreciate the enormous efforts taken by others to be there. But we willingly put up with the hassle just to be able to say, 'I was there'.

I understand you won't be joining us, Ian?

weather forecast

The forecast for Saturday looks interesting, but it won't deter the Ribsters or even the Riblessters!
