Don't think I have much to add to this generally I carry a fair range of spare parts that would suit all. I will be taking a large breaker bar and axle sockets as I've recently had trouble with rear wheel seals and brakes hopefully sorted now. good trip up to Coventry and back no problems and averaging about 28 mpg so seems to be running okay
Have done some A3 copies of the map so everyone can have a copy which may be easier to read as I have increased the scale abit .
Won't make the 6pm kick off as I will be working that day so won't be back till about then so probably met up with you later at Dover.
cheers

Just a thought probably already have it covered but a list of thinks like points , plug gaps, common torque settings etc might be useful if your memory is like mine.

Carl I have my brothers brake bleeder now to if needed

Daz, how are you for Sunday? or later Sat evening? (We are out Sat 'luncheoning' in Oxford, don't know what time we will be back though).
Can we also pick up the walkie talkies? (We've got one back from Steve)

Owen, can you make a later depart?

We should all be registered for 75th at Wolfsberg - just waiting for our names to appear. Mine took a few days, don't really know as I wasn't expecting to see my name on there. We need to sort payment when we are there.

Looking forward to it

Spoke to Owen last night, he's still hoping to travel Wed night but can't be certain about times as he gets in at 6 pm. 
Overnight parking Dover: had a look on a couple of forums
http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/motorhome-chat/6585-overnight-parking-dover.html


http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/chatter/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=12&TopicID=227015&PagePosition=1&oo=41627715
http://www.stop24.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=10


Looks like the Esplanade is OK, near'ish to garages, don't know about public toilets, may need a pee bottle for the night.
The M20 services charge £10 parking, lots about getting parking fines etc and being dirty & noisy.
Can always get food etc at chippy / pub and last toilet stop before parking up


Just another thought weren't there showers on the ferry?


What do you think 
Also spoke to Neil Smart too last night. He will be sending us details about camping and factory tour in Hannover. I think this is the camp site and I will get us all booked in. http://www.camping-blauer-see.de/en/camping/overview.
There are 19 vehicles approx going to Hannover from the SSVC. I'll keep you posted

Got details from Neil re Hannover - I have sent you emails about it and printed off the maps etc.

having spoke to you all last night we are hoping to meet / leave from 7.00 - 7.30 pm on Wed night. (Owen will be the deciding factor although Carl will probably be late too.)
Just printing off all ferry details at the minute.

Have you seen the BBT4 blog? Bob has emptied the warehouse / museum and has polished his floor, no wonder his busses are so shiny.

Carl's home, showered and just having a quick sarnie. We've packed the bus, got a couple of small beers for tonight, and are seriously looking forward to our trip. See you at the Chestnut at 7 ish.
Owen give us a shout if you need a spare pair of hands.
