Ken

I cant believe it either.

I really felt something when I saw the wood floor in the photo.  Reminded me of so many things but most of all attention to detail and quality of things. Would have been nice of you were coming over for a visit too. I am sure it has stories to tell and I hope we can make more stories of K travels.

When the trailer is loaded its bin laden.

At least when the poor man is sent out to the doghouse he will go with a smile if she throws his bike gear into the doghouse too......

I have to confess 88KE and myself enjoyed a very hearty laugh over that trailer as we put the link up on the forum. We didn't recognise it for what it was at first. The idea certainly works, whatever about the basis or the fact that you cant hide your roots.

Reminds me of a project a number of years back when a certain person locally who was a good match for Mrs Bucket in 'Keeping up Appearances' decided she wanted a show off water feature in her front garden. An elaborate scheme was devised and a suitably expensive job carried out.

All was well until a well heeled farmer client was invited to a party at the house and after a few glasses of whiskey recognised it for what it was: a dressed up very large cattle trough used by a very creative builder as the basis for the water feature.  Being a man of a devilish streak, akin to what seems to be defined as a larrikin he announced the fact to all and sundry. 'Best crack I've had for years....

The idea of the cattle trough was the builders own but we had a ball putting it all together, especially the speculation on what would happen if she ever found out.

I am not the farmer and wasn't there, but the builder was......

That's fantastic news Charlie, Both Leigh (SWMBO) & I are tickled pink that the towbar is in Ireland.

You have done a brilliant job of organising to get it there (along with help from Will & Dave).

It's good to know that what has been given & what has been done is so appreciated.

Well done !

Olaf, all I want in return is a photo of it fitted so I can brag about it being used all around Australia & Ireland ! Laughing Laughing

Hi Ken,

I hadn't seen the last few posts as on 31st May we were on the ferry arriving in France.

Tow bar is at 88KE house in Wexford, 3 hours from me so a suitably Konvenient time will be arranged for collection. Due to 'family making plans for me' I think I will be looking at some extended camping trips in Ireland next summer as Europe is too hot in July for us lot.

Whatever about the activities of the Eccentrics seems the weather for Indian036 visit in March was very much warmer and more to the Aussie liking than what we got for the few days TacKler was here.

However yesterday being Father's Day here I had a rather lovely trip out with my son followed by a nice breakfast and later on a bbq. A few years back he tried to lose me when we were out and I was on the LT. He tried again yesterday, this time he has his VFR and the RT stayed behind him like glue. Funny someone in France on a Ducati tried that with 88KE and didn't lose him either......

More tales of the tow bar will be following....

Definitely a huge thanks to Ken and all involved in the relay run from Kens to 88KE!
