The Gaydon weekend saw a good turn out of vehicles despite the brakes going on with invites and promoting the weekend as space was at a premium with over running building works which must be catching as that remains the case with us at St Oswalds, if they go any slower they'll be dismantling the building. Frustrating in the extreme we have a site meeting tomorrow afternoon at which we'll be fed the usual rubbish and excuses, oh but there were a penalty clause in the contract. Anyway I'm not sure what delays at Gaydon are down to, may be as i heard it was the newts. A huge lake looks to be under construction so perhaps there are having speed boats. It's great museum even without special events of which there are many including a bus rally the weekend we go to Lathalmond thus we haven't experienced it and giving loyalty to Lathalmond the museum which retains a relaxed friendly approach to things and we find suits us with our regular digs nearby and I usually get some filming done, if weather permits I'll film trucks on the way up.
I'm also planning to fly up to Aberdeen to cover buses and lorries in an extended day. The birds in our garden are marching through the food, deolishing the fat balls, I guess it's the wind which causes that. I met up with my childhood friend Dave Vaughan at Gaydon and together we chatted to folk admiring his 4mm dioramas of industrial scenes including Hall & Co the aggregates company that we both knew at children with the quary on the Crumbles at Eastbourne. Dave recently took his AEC lorry up to the Newark rally which appears to have grown perhaps we'll have a go at that on again next year trying to ring the changes in our coverage around the country. Another film loaded to our Subscription channel on Youtube last night, I think I've got 18 on now, when it hits 30 I'll go live with it. Lets have some shots of that fantastic road run from Volvo UK 50th to Gaydon yesterday afternoon.
