Could take the Aprilia RS250 (if I still have it by then). But can't sleep in the back of a bike. Van wins.

You can sleep in a tent you've strapped to it tho, and then we can all swoon over the Aprillia. 

I'll be working one day that weekend, won't know until sky / bt throw a dart at the calendar and pull a time out of their arse when tho, I reckon most options would give me a shot of making a night there. Fingers crossed for Monday night football.

Just looked, 3rd of April is the date it should be announced, it's nice they give everyone involved plenty of notice.

I was going to give the Ips-Fel rally a miss for 2020, but actually this could end up being a really great weekend. Saturday at the field and Sunday on the prom. 

If anyone has anything they fancy showing off on Sunday then I’d encourage it. Also, we could just head over to Christchurch Park where all the cars meet on Sunday AM. 

I guess people can chose to do what they wish!

Good grief-sleep in a tent!? A blow up mattress in the  back of the van is about as close to rough sleeping as I get.

I used to have the same issue with weekend working rotas, except I always seemed to be called out at least once every weekend. No problem with rotas now I've retired-but just as busy, such as not getting back to UK until 30th April.

Maybe I'll stick my Cagiva Mito and Monet Goyon in the van with the RS and bring them down. None are trailer queens and get ridden-hard- whenever possible. Well, the Monet doesn't as it's only coughed and spluttered into life once. I've not tried to start it since.

I love my two strokes.

Hmmm... yes what to bring... 

Yugo probably won’t be ready unless o really pull my finger out, but turning up in it does sound glorious.

2cv not that comfy to sleep in

Saab a bit predictable and boring by comparison but would be good to sleep in. But I may need to leave that as a reliable car for Mrs_b unless she’s bought herself a new motor by then... 

Camper seems far too tame for Shitefest, it even has a loo!

But maybe I’m being previous... I could have bought something entirely different by then! 😂

Pull your finger out of the Yugo and make it work... or tow it in and we'll make it work!

Looks do-able to me! Thanks Trigger.

It'll be the first one I've gone to since the Bubblecar Museum weekend back in 2008.

No staying over for me, but given how local I am I should be able to pop back and forth in whatever is on the road at the time. I haven't yet thought about whether we're doing Ips-Fx, but it sounds like there's the ability to combine the events and make a great weekend out of it.

Get Chaseracer to drive it over, I think he's quicker on it than Hairnet is on the bike 😄

I think I may indeed have needed a dab of oppo at one point.  The hand-throttled, weird-braked, big diesel Massey is a bitch.  And I spanked it.

I have no idea what shift I will be working then and if I'm free I would love to join in the shenanigans.  Not sure if I'll bring the Almera or the bike?

you get great views of...err... Britain’s Premier Port. 

I work there!  Please don't mention it again.

@trigger I might be able to help you if you need it.  I live in Ipsvitch.  All depends on bloody shifts.

its suffolk so tractor or xr3i cabrio :D (so close to essix it hurts :P )

It is insured for road use and taxed, but while the brakes were never great they are now more or less non existent!

I have taken it to the pub in the past!

In. Not sure what I'll be bringing, but I know the Jag is habitable, so to speak. 

Well the guest bedroom suite of my tent will be available, even if I've got Eva she's not going to want to sleep on her own!

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!

      For the first time this year we were actually able to attend this show. It's only 8 miles from home but in previous years we'd always managed to avoid finding out about it until a few days afterwards A free event in the Market Square and High Street, there were probably about 150 cars there including a lot I hadn't seen before, so here's some highlights.

      Hi all,
       
      Bit of a random one but do any Manchester/Derbyshire/South or West Yorkshire based Shiters fancy a meetup sometime in Glossop?
       
      I know it's not exactly a sprawling metropolis but it has a reasonably priced car park, a Wetherspoons, a caff, etc.
       
      Main reason for suggesting it is it's a nice drive in from most directions - over Holme Moss from the North or Snake Pass from Sheffield direction.
       
      The A624 from the south isn't too bad either.
       
      Something like a Thursday evening would be best for me but open to suggestions.
