I've just had a BBQ, it put me in the mood for some P38 tinkering :)

You never know, if we get a firm list of names, once we have a date we might be able to negotiate with a hotel for a group booking.

Can’t see me shipping LINLEY to UK passing the wife’s budget meeting....
I’m in Conneticut. About an hour or so north of JFK.
Welcome anytime, just bring beer.....

Oh nice - I have various friends around NYC, so chances are I'll be over that way again before I have work to catch up with some of them - with any luck anyway...

I actually have a friends up in CT - I think she's somewhere around New Haven, which if she isn't over in Cali with her other half then I'll probably end up heading towards New Haven to catch up with her anyway.

Beer can be sourced... though I could also bring RR parts too if required ;)

My workshop is probably 15 miles south of Swindon - just outside Marlborough. Whilst there is space up there for a caravan, I wouldn't recommend it, as I rent one unit out of a number of them up there, and there have been letters etc about extra vehicles being parked up there as it was getting out of hand for awhile. There also is only one official parking space allocated to my unit, which is on an incline and about the length of a RR... Extra vehicles during the day has never been a problem, but I'm not sure on the deal with staying overnight sorry.

I mentioned about the drier to Sloth as he's done loads more with AC systems than I have, and he recommends replacing the drier again, as it's been open to the atmosphere.

AC on a long journey like that would be nice!

I took mine out for a bit of a run this evening now the alternator is back in after being reconditioned (thread/pics to follow) and I was pleasantly surprised to find that my AC is still running nicely - it's been a couple of years now since I've had mine charged - so I'm glad that it's finally holding pressure properly (I started off with a seized compressor, then bad O-ring, then leaking from the condenser - so after a few goes at chasing all that I've obviously finally cracked it!)

I've been there at least 4 times, so what made me think Reading???

I'm obviously up for another RR camp when ye olde gov' and pandemic et al allow!

Be good to have a bit more socialising pub style-in-the-workshop-yard - maybe slightly less on the big jobs and some easy things? Obviously we had a slight unforeseen late nighter last time, but it involved a P38... things happen! And it probably won't be the last time it happens.

Would that be the emergency replacement of some heater pipes through the bulkhead?

I think I'd be up for a visit, depending on when. I'm not sure how I feel venturing out in to the general population soon. Not sure if I trust we'll all be safe for a good while.

If I do come I'll be doing so without a Range Rover. I can bring tools and help out where I can - even if it's as Chief Tea Maker :)

You only coming for the one day then? Normally we make a weekend of it.

I usually set off on the Friday, stay with friends on the Friday night and get to Marty's around mid morning, depending on how many horse-farms I visit while looking for his workshop.
