|Friday 28th April to Monday 1st May 2006.
Somewhere in the North West of England (Cheshire), there will be the first gathering of UK mog owners.
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.
Monday - Going home!
|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 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.
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!
--- 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.
