Hmm... somehow I have ended up with 2 bottles of .25g BBs, which I only use for my K98 - that should last me about 10 years, I reckon. And I appear to have no .2s. :roll: Would anybody be able to swap a bottle of 0.2s for 0.25s? They supposedly good makes - Blaster and Devil-something-or-other. Danke.

As is happens I have a bottle of .20s at home and no .25s left for my rifle, I'd be happy to swap.

Excited yes!
Prepared no.

Have a whole day of work, shopping and packing ahead of me tomorrow.

Ditto. But add into that list 'An evening of changing an inaccessible starter motor on a Isuzu 1.7CDTi lump'...
Though, I may have time to try to get it done this evening *fingers crossed*

Still got the "bar humbug's" , wife's car serviced last month , MOT'd last week and the exhaust started blowing yesterday ' so i had a look and found the exhaust needs replacing and a rubberc CV boot on the drive shaft has split as well ! and i have this afternoon to do it , picked up the exhaust and it has an un-needed hole for a sensor but otherwise fit's so i thought i'd just weld up the hole and i find i've run out of gas for the mig welder ! i think i'm having a "one of those day's" . after that's done i have the rest of the afternoon to finish sorting kit but till then excitement is on hold.

Family illness, a blown ignition module and new coil on my nan's car that needs replacing after I've taken her to the hospital, my Thompson I've managed to dismantle but can't seem to put back together again and now have a desk full of screws and the prospect in a few hours of bundling my cat in its carrying box and taking it back to Blackheath now my other half is back... which drives the cat garrity.

Stressed up to f*ck and back.

Well aside form my local running out of Wodka I am hunky dory and excitement is building. Lamb ordered form the butcher, kit sorted over the last weekend and just the car to pack this evening.

I am the minority it seems. :giggle:

Looking forward to it. Not too much to pack other than a lot of pyro and det kit. :happyswing:

Weather's looking a bit crap though.

Batteries charged, sewing complete (discorved I really hate sewing - never again!), found my box torch. All I need now is food and i'm all set for my first event :happyswing:

To add to the list of car hiccups my alternator sounds like its full of VERY angry bees, no time to replace though and as its still charging I'm adding it to the list of 'things to fix only when and if they cause a catastrophic failure.'

This is why I'm no longer a mechanic...

Huzzah! Changed the bugger is a record time! Less than 1.5hours including getting tool out and putting away again. Definitely not as easy as the Morris 1000 was to change the starter motor :evil: But now I can relax and worry about other things, like packing...

If you don't manage to sort it in time, bring it all along Friday night (if you are arriving Friday night?) and I'll reassemble it for you tout de suite. Taken mine apart far too often... :slap:

Cheers, mate. I'm too embarrassed/irritated to go near it at the moment. i'm going to give it to Dadio as the spring needs cutting; it's hot as all Hades at the moment.

The moral of the story, never attempt anything like that when you're having a bad day.

Very, very excited for this now. Have a day in the office to undertake first, but its sans management so it should be a breeze - then home, pack car, drive half way to folks for the night, then up to you all early in the morning. :happyclap:

I've got a very, very good feeling about this event! :good:
