It’s late September and here we are again driving Puffin to the Adventure and Overland show at the Stratford on Avon racecourse.
On the way we had called into the local clinic for our Flu jabs and returned some clothes to Marks & Spencer’s.
I like to be productive. I did think about dropping a load of rubbish at the local tip as we passed by, but they have height barriers.
I look forward to this show every year. It fuels my dreams, makes me want to travel more and perhaps push some boundaries.
The stands selling natural products made from leather and wood always draw me in.
I can wander the tools and parts stalls all day, trying to stop myself from buying that must have set of spanners.
Obviously the vehicles are the stars here and the mix is so varied.
I will just let the photos tell the tale.
The French made Gazell demount caught my eye. It’s being sold in the UK by SBS
There was a good turn out of Ex army conversions
This Unimog is Mowgli as seen on the blog
Cooking was high on my agenda. I was hoping to find the Hawkins pressure cooker. A simple, but effective cooker made in India since 1959. The small 2 litre capacity cooker would be ideal for our campervan allowing us the cook fresh local produce in a greatly reduced time. If there was one there, I didn’t find it.
I was also looking for a silicone mould for our Omnia oven, but it seems that Omnia don’t have any in stock in Sweden, let alone the UK.
