Too early for an Excitement thread? Nah. I have to say I am coming to the boil nicely. 2 lots off kit to prepare as well as 2 lots of guns to sort out and charge batteries for. So much to do, so little time cant wait. 6/10 and growing steadily :D

Excited? Maybe too strong a word for me, I'm not exactly shivering with antici.......pation. But I am looking forward to it.

First event excitement currently in-check - too busy sewing things to other things (hopefully in the right place) also learning to sew.

Wake up there, Muttley, you're dreaming again!
You're not Robin Hood and you're not Gunga Din.
You're not a brave knight or a king who's been crowned;
You're just plain old Muttley, the snickering hound!

Waiting for a new spring to downgrade my Thompson. Bought a new set of webbing that I can happily Blanco to my hearts content; God-daughters are helping me with that on Friday when they come to stay. :good:

6/10.

Having watched a few videos online, really looking forward to having a look round the site.

I've read there's a memorial for those that served at RAF Grafton Underwood. Are we able to access it at all at any stage?

It's not on site but just up the road.

Excited, but a little worried as my car's starter motor packed up this morning - hope to be able to acquire a replacement and fit it before Friday.

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well

Solid 8 now, though I was thinking how hot its going to be in BD, then I checked the weather and it seems were going to have authentic weather like June 7th 1944! :lol:

Yeah, hard to tell on the wetness this far ahead but cloudy and 18-21 degrees suits me fine.

Well aside from a few days to do at work, I'm feeling very much ready for this weekend now. I wasn't looking forward to it being a blazing hot day either, so will be bringing ample water and also a few sugary drinks (just in case in do get dehydrated!). Roll on Saturday! :D

Kar 98 still stuck in customs for at least another 20 days + but have borrowed an mp 40 and dialed up the exitometer to 11! :)

I am now somewhat miffed. I thought Monday 4th was a bank holiday and have just spotted the small print. I have had more than enough of Scotland now. :evil:

Yes, bloody Google calendar has been confusing me for months.

Excitement building now, Mkii helmet painted from sand to mid bronze green, boots slavered in dubbin, fingers crossed the comando insignia I forgot turns up before the weekend. Looking forward to meeting Miss Shelton.
