VW Show Bus Types 2010 - Fantastic Weekend

What a wonderful weekend. VW`s, Sun, Camping, Rock Bands and Disco`s What more can a girl want.
This has to be one of the best VW shows held at Oswestry. They came in there thousands from all over the country.
Everything from Beetles, Bay Windows, Split Screens and T25`s. Slam to Rat`s all types of campers.

After a few hour`s work early Saturday morning we headed off to the show, loaded up ready to camp for the night. It was a beautiful day we headed for a look around the stalls and the vans on show.
Later in the afternoon we joined in the road cruise with our T25. It was an amazing site as the VW`s headed through the Shropshire villages coming to rest at Billy Badger`s Chirk. It was here we first met Mad Max. This guy was a real case, we were comparing T25`s only difference was he had put on extra`s power steering and his wasn't standered. We agreed to meet up later for a pint to compare notes. It was Mad Max`s first VW show he hadnt had his van long ?
After the cruise Aaron and I made a quick pit stop back home to feed the rest of the animals. Leaving lots of food for Sooty the cat, Jake the parrot and locking Jingle in the stable for the night bribing him in with his tea to get him in ( he cant get up to mischief locked up ) we headed back to the show.
Harry offered to let Jingle out on Sunday morning ( thanks Uncle Harry & Aunt Pat for minding the house over night )
Next stop back to the show !!!!

The evening entertainment was fab rock band The Duffs Played most of the night. In the other hall was a disco playing a wide range of music form many of the recent decades.
We had a great laugh. What a fantastic night in great fun company.

Sunday morning saw us up early heading off to the car boot at Whittington. With the show being so busy we walked down. Again it was such a beautiful day. Aaron took his bicycle whist I walked Fred the dog. There is a cycle lane that runs parallel with the road so Aaron could cycle in safety. Reaching the castle the swans had made a nest and the female looked as if she was sitting on eggs, we will have to pay another visit soon to see if they have hatched ( picture`s below) We bought a few bits and then headed back to what was becoming a very packed show even more camper vans than the day before.

Another wonderful day lay ahead. We wandered around the show, then headed back to the camper for some shade and a rest. After another wonderful day we said our goodbyes`s to all the lovely people we had met and the old friend`s who have known us on the VW scenes for many years. All vowing to meet up again at the next one. Having travelled to many show`s over the years from Scotland to Cornwall we have made many friend with camper vans. Many people remember us with our beloved Daniel. Daniel loved the show his smiles and cheeky ways are missed by many people who remember him.

What a fantastic weekend what more can a girl want.
