    Well, I’m on cooking duty, it’s Saturday night, and I’ve been working my @rse off all day, but here are a few photos:

    A visitation of Glorias (not all) and a few ring-ins.

    Bob, lots of shed work and collection sorting going on... about two more months, I reckon.

    Cheers

    Well, I have to say we've got a good pitch and the weather is hot and sunny although with a bit of a breeze. The facilities are much improved this year and much closer to the campsite too. No queues at all and I could be in there as long as I liked without some irritating bu&&er rattling on the handle - even at 3.30 in the morning! Decent phone signal, too.

    Anyway, my breakfast was so late, I didn't even dare to call it brunch:-
    Breakfast.jpg

    Followed by a mug of coffee and a slab of No.1 daughter's lemon drizzle cake:-
    Coffee and cake.jpg
    Nice... :)

    The stove I'm using is a Primus 1S:or which has lain in a flowerbed for at least 5-6 years. I pulled it out of the undergrowth and it lit itself after priming using the old fuel which was still in the tank. Absolutely no fettling required whatsoever... :D/

    Hi folks

    Well, I’m set for the night! More photographs to follow when it gets dark enough to do the lanterns justice.

    Regards Jeremy

    Well, it's been so hot here I had to go in my tent for a little siesta - nothing new there then!

    Since that, I've fettled a chrome RM one-pinter and I'm going to start on my Dutch X246 soon.

    But before that, I'd like to invite you all round to my pitch for a celebratory drink to mark my 70th birthday last Thursday. There's plenty of lager as well as ordinary Jack Daniel's and two superior JD varieties - Tennessee Honey and Single Barrel Select. Also birthday cake and plenty of chocolate for the kids. I just can't wait for you all to get here:- :D/

    Oh, hang on a minute... :doh:

    Thanks Emiel!

    That lantern marked KERO - that'll be for gasoline then... ](*,) :lol:

    Today's fettled items:
    RM stove and Dutch X246.jpg
    An RM one-pinter stove in chrome and my Dutch X246 also in chrome, though a bit worn in places. It's running OK sort-of and will need a bit more attention tomorrow morning after breakfast...

    Virtual Newark 2020 - 3 lanterns.jpg

    Left to right-
    1946 Tilley X246 Short-handle 'Knucklewarmer', Bialaddin 310 and a Dutch X246 now running nicely. I just got sick of having to pump it up every 20 minutes or so and decided to do it tonight. It had to be the washer under the control cock - I'm not too sure about these still so I decided I'd leave it alone if possible. On dismantling it proved the previous owner had substituted an 'O-ring' for the correct washer. Replacing that with the genuine article soon had the lantern running as it was designed to - huzzah!

    I'll be putting the 310 and Dutch X246 up for sale next week. The knucklewarmer is already spoken for - sorry...
