17.5mpg in petrol and somewhat similar in ATF, but she did get me home without a recovery truck and is now in the garage in disgrace still dripping red fluid everywhere :jpshakehead:

Still had a good time though even if it was a little quieter than normal.

As per usual thanks to the organisers!!

Great weekend, flew by without a Jeep breakdown for me which is a rarity and long may it continue.

Thanks to everyone involved organising it, especially Donk, James B, Andy and the half dozen others I've forgotten to name that struggled to setup marquee, sort portaloos and get the place ready for us all.

Just wanted to say thanks to all you guys who organised the event.

I didn't go on the off road site with my KJ but we had a nice time at the BBQ
and around the Bonfire chatting to few beer drinker Birties.  :icon_super:

Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who was able to attend this year's cheapfest, although a little light on numbers this year, I hope it went as well as previous years even though many folk were sincerely missed ... life & stuff does get in the way sometimes & it cant be helped.

Many individual thank you's have to go to Ted & Ivan plus his folks, Team Donk without whose usual sterling efforts with the marquee would have made life less comfortable with the damp Saturday day time & of course the boys stepping up later to cook the BBQ.

Bubba & his hunter gathering of stuff to burn & his magic concoction, re-named liquid daylight to keep us warmed & entertained for Saturday nights traditional camp inferno.

If I have missed anyone out I apologise, I hope Zac got home OK & his Jeep is an easy fix.

Just to add, a big thank you for the very kind donations to the BBQ fund, all costs were covered & even a tenner went in the pot. Talking of which, after all the site & loo expenses etc were paid up (thanks again to the early payers), I was able to bank £430 today to go into the kitty towards next years PLI insurance & event deposits.

Thanks again all

Great weekend and thank you to all involved. Starting to feel much more a part of birties too now that I'm getting to know some of you and the Jeeps better.

Looking forward to the next one...

What is this turkey hunt you speak of??

Gutted I never got there, work on friday got in the way. As it did on Saturday with a couple of callouts and Sunday I had to be a good husband and view a new horse for Nat which ended up been an all day thing.

But turkey hunt is blocked out the diary and a new off roader is parked on the trailer
