Last year we were talking (on the SSVC forum) about getting as much hitops together as possible.. So Phil Dowling stepped up and started a thread .. Months later it was finally time for a real nice get together at Cold Aston. Unfortunately it’s impossible to pick a “free” date, lots of other events going the same weekend so many UK hitops were spread out over the country.. Nevertheless we had a fantastic weekend with a very nice range of different splitty’s and great people!!
Friday eve we arrived late at Ben&Sarie’s (parents) cool barn.. Luxury camping underneath a barn shelter, Lots of beer and bus talk send us off to bed..
What an ass huh.. Darren’s beautifull restored hitop .. what a beauty!!
Saturday morning we left to Cold Aston.. a super tiny village which consists of approx 25 old rural houses/farms a closed pub and church.. 😀 The weather was superb and so there was a fantastic mood.
The village had their yearly fayre and we bought a lot of crap.. lol .. I found a nice old school lumberjack shirt thanks to my buddy Steve! After the BBQ we went to the local party !! 😀
Not sure if it was the combination of today’s alcohol, sun and smokes but the location looked very much like a Lord of the Rings scene.. the barnowner, the typical band in the old stable, old school village people and the single burning light above the door..
A fantastic party.. apparently I never made it till the end.. 😀 As you can see above I was in a very good “mood” . .. lol
Sunday morning it was time to leave as I’m off to la Belgique to meet friends and lots things planned around …
Nearly forgot to mention Steve and myself have plans to start a small business and we came across a little gadget at the fayre that became our logo.. “Aircooled Flippers” is born !! 😀 Hopefully soon more news about this..
Then it was time leave my great friends and hit the road for a solid 12hrs drive.. 😀
Come back soon for more updates !!
