E-mail Print PDF

Our aim today is to walk the 36 miles from Lands End to Newquay. Check the map below to find out where we are, we'll update our status as often as we can. If you'd like to sponsor us you can do that through Paypal all donations are going toward club funds ready for Novembers Carnival season.

1945: The guys finally made camp at the New Perran Holiday Park, Newquay after covering 36 miles. Chef Fisher is now cooking dinner and Steve & Tim can finally rest their tired legs.

1638: The guys have just completed their first marathon and are almost at Redruth, so that's 26 miles down and 135 to go.It's very hot out on the road and despite plastering on the suncream both Tim and Steve are suffering sunburn. Their legs are starting to hurt but there are just 10 miles to go to Newquay. Please use the Donate button to show your support for Tim and Steve.

1101: Had a call from the guys and they have just walked through Drift, just west of Penzance. This morning as they were limbering up they met up with Darren Johnson who finished his 26-day John O'Groats to Lands End walk last night.

1018: We're 6 miles in and all is going well

0843: We're on the road at last...

Shed weekend

E-mail Print PDF

A big thank-you to all who helped over the weekend 13/14th March at the Shed Tidying Weekend. Despite previous clear-out sessions we still managed to file another trailer with of scrap metal. The switch-over to the new mains supply has now been completed which should improve saftey and sun-glasses are now advised when entering the main shed due to the brightness of the new lights!

Thank-you to all the painters, it seems strange to be painting the cart so early in the season but it's good to be getting ahead so early. Soon we'll be able to fasten the new sheets to the geni-trailer.

Thank-you for all you efforts!

 

The journey home 2010

E-mail Print PDF

Due to a mix up over times, the road crew arrived at Weston in drips and drabs. Most had had a very late night the night before and were hungry for breakfast. It had been a cold start to the day but as we moved off from Weston the sun was out and it was a beautiful day.

The journey back went really well until we got to Bridgwater, Gary and Tim  broke off with the generator trailer as we went through Bridgwater to unload the generator and they'd join us later. As we came up to the roundabout at the Clink, Steve suddenly came over the radio saying he'd lost drive, after a couple of minutes playing around he finally found 1st gear and managed to crawl off.  

Once we got through Bridgwater, Matt, AJ and I took the cart on to the shed and Budgie and Steve crawled behind us in 1st gear.

Cart back in it's shed

We got back to the shed quickly to find Phil was already there and had already opened the cart shed doors. Normally the Cart ggoes in the shed quite easily, but oday it just didn't want to go in. The shed is very narrow and the 60' cart must be reversed down a slope into the shed with just 3" clearance on both sides. After many attempts Budgie called to say they were waiting outside the village in a lay-by so Matt and AJ left to tow Steve in the decorated tractor. 

Once they were back at the shed we tried again to get the cart into the shed. During this attempt Steve, nicknamed 'Skippy' managed to skip over some steel and fell to the ground twisting his ankle  leaving him in some pain. Obviously we gave him all the support good friends should and once we'd stopped laughing we call for an ambulance.

Ambulance for Steve

Tim and Gary arrived back with the genni trailer closely followed by Biff the paramedics. By this time Steve's pain had eased off and after a quick check over he was able to stand a little. Once we'd got Steve off the floor, we were able to get the decorated tractor and genni trailer into the shed and close the doors.

Suddenly there was a shout from the front of the shed and we ran out to find Tim with the rea doors of his van opened and big tub of paint spilling out all over the floor! There was a sudden rush for as many bucket of water as we could find to flush out the back of his van. Fortunately the van was white, the same colour as the paint.

Once we'd cleared up the mess we could finally slide the doors shut and lock them up. Another year in carnival was open, now to get home and finish all those DIY jobs!
