Perhaps if we ask nicely the 'Matt Savage overlanders bbq' will be held again this year on the Saturday night... A good meeting place for travellers - and he will look after your heavy items while you trapse around some more if you ask super nicely...

Matt?

Let's party!
Saturday evening at my stand at Billing, I can't remember the stand number but it's near the Land Rover Stand, near where the LRE tent used to be.... I think?

I'll supply a bit to drink and a grill. Please bring whatever you want to eat, and we'll sort it out!

Say 7.30ish?

Cheers,
Matt

(hey, take a look at Land Rover show 2006 at Billing)

Thanks to Matt and Toby for your hospitality to a stranger.
If you're up my way I'd be happy to reciprocate
Thanks

Hello Jeff

I met you at the Footloose stand on Sunday and you gave me some advice and told me some of your stories and it was really good to meet you.

Thanks for telling me about this website amongst others, it has a wealth of information and experience, I also enjoyed reading through yours.

Thanks again

Peter
(Probably one of many Saffa's you met that day!)
