Friday - Arrive and drink.

Saturday - More arrivals and a quarry visit (now booked)in the afternoon. BBQ

Sunday - Drive out and green lane mission in the Pennines somewhere.

There doesn't seem a lot worth adding to the website. Email me for the further details, I'm looking for money to confirm places. Mail Me - jim ATE foodfight. org. uk

What is Mogstock

Mogstock 2006. Friday 28th April to Monday 1st May 2006

Most Unimog related mailing lists / forums are European (I can't read them), or North American based with some UK moggers lurking around.

Every time a UK mogger appeared, I'd mail them and got to know a few - surprisingly, two within 10 miles of my house. I've borrowed tools, dispensed and received advice, swapped parts and tyres, etc.

We haven't actually driven our mogs out - as they're all being rebuilt!

We're all going to meet!


Mogstock is a gathering of Mog owners, wannabe Mog owners and a few others. Nothing fancy - just a field, some tents, some Mogs, a couple of days off roading together and most likely of all - a pub or two.

Mogstock is private, please contact me if you want to come jim hat foodfight. org. uk - we are a friendly bunch - but want to know who's coming.

Mogstock will cost some money, not a lot, but some. Apart from fuel, expect a few quid for camping, and to have to pay for use of an off road course.

What's happening?

Friday - Arrivals, from about 3pm onwards. The site is 10 miles from J18 of the M6 at Northwich. More precise details by email. Unpacking, drinking beer and kicking tyres.

Saturday - More arrivals, and a visit to a local quarry site (Hill and Ditch, Mouldsworth), which is about 15 miles from the camp site. It is an old sand quarry in a big pit, with water and rocks and sand and mud. (Now booked)

Latecomers can meet here, or we can send a dispatch to meet you. BBQ at night & I'll see about a fire.

Sunday - Drive out up the Cat and Fiddle road up to Macclesfield for lunch at the pub at the top (we can scare a few bikers). From there, we will do some green lanes. Routes are being examined as we speak.

Monday - Going home, at a stately and dignified speed!

What should I bring?

Stuff that would be useful includes;

--- Camp equipment - chairs, gazeebo's, BBQ equipment.

--- Recovery equimpent - I have a steel mog recovery bar for pintles, but a few bits of rope & shackles would probably be useful.

--- Walkie talkies - I'll grab a few of the cutesy modern little ones, others would be useful.

--- Wood - if we're allowed a fire, wood would be useful.

--- Any spares to trade, see the Wanted page.

Stuff what's wanted

A good place to trade those bit's you've built up.

I've traded a lot of parts and tools with other moggers, and bought lots of cheap stuff - here's a good chance.


- Any desert expedition kit (it's for a U1300L). Let me know what you have.

- Any hydraulic kit for a 404, PTO, crawler gears or other cool stuff.

- Bumper & skid plate for 404.

- 404 seats

- 404 width-indicator stalks (for the front bumper)

- 404 Radio or ambulance body.

- 404 Half Shafts (someone's preparing for the worst!)

To Trade

- We have a second 404 which we bought for ourselves, but may part with bits to those in need.

- High comp head from a (apparently) suitable Sedan car - £200. Mail me and I can put you in touch.

- 4 x 404 drums in great condition and the back plates for sale ! any reasonable offer accepted !
