Thinking about it, I brought a 4wheel bale trailer from where you've been 🤔🤔 wonder if it's the same guy? His surname began with an "F" too 🤔 (edit to add, it was pretty hard to find too)

(And my new to me mower came from just up the road recently too...)

Pic for @Flat 10 below, the tla runs it nicely 👍

He's got to get there first.....just imagine it, he'll be late leaving so it'll be a mega rush to get to the ferry on time, then he'll probably end up causing a traffic jam loading onto the ferry, then he'll probably pull the plug and the ferry will start to sink.
Once in France.......assuming he makes the crossing, he'll set off on the wrong side of the road, then maybe a puncture or two and a few pit stops for a rollie and a flake and then 18 hours later and a couple of hundred miles extra from wrong turns he'll realise he's left poor old Mrs spin standing on the drive way at home..........I really can't wait for comedy diary of a sheep farmer, on tour!!!!!!!!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
@spin @robbie
talking of ferry’s
2012 the flower girl wanted to go to amsterdam
so booked ferry out of hull 😳
any way boards and walk down the narrow passage way to the microscopic cabin no windows or owt , 🥵🙈👎
not going in that coffin , so out back up to lass further up boat and tell her want to get off ,and start to kick up a fuss
they where pulling ramps up ,but kept at her so they delayed sailing and put boarding ramps back down and then police bomb squad etc come on board and questioned and then a squad set on and search ship with sniffer dogs and a bomb squad
hour later they let us off and let ferry set sail
we ended up at tan hill , for weekend
been on day ferry to ireland and orkneys , will never go over night 😂

.......the North Lincolnshire Expeditionary Force are assembling in preparation for their 'push' over the border into Norfolk for next week's Royal Norfolk Show.

The Quartermaster tells me he will stop over at Saracen's Head to take on more supplies, mainly .............

......

....before we push on to Sutton Bridge. Hopefully the Cross Keys Bridge will be still in tact, otherwise we'll have to build a pontoon over the Nene.

Then it's on, into deepest, darkest Narfuk 😱. Over the Ouse at Kings Lynn and then there's really no turning back.

We should reach base camp at Dunston by Tuesday night. Wednesday will see us push onto the showground at Norwich where some sheep judging will take place (I fully expect to find most of the feckers guilty :facepalm:)

So, how many of you Narfukian contributors will be going? I could be tied up with sheep for quite a while (have to judge Lincolns and then Any Other Longwools) - should be done by dinner time?? :scratchhead:

It would be nice to put some names to faces and maybe have a beer.
If you're about,look out for a fellow, that looks like a flour grader, in a white coat and bowler hat and come and say 'hello'........
