Mini Splash Dash - 1st to 4th May 2015

Post by Minisontour on Fri 02 Jan 2015, 20:12

This year the Cumbria Mini Cruisers 7th Mini Splash Dash is held in the Yorkshire Dales!!

Last year this event was fantastic (held in Kielder Forest in northumbria) and this year is a definite turnout for myself...

All details can be found on their website..

www.minisplashdash.webeden.co.uk

It is 15 entry onto the event and campsite fees are to be paid on arrival to the site

I can honestly say its another must do!

I remember you telling me about this and how good it was.
I don't think I've been to Yorkshire Dales on a run or weekend camping so should be interesting due to fresh location.
I shall talk it over with you properly at Bingley but Im going to be filling in an application form for this one given you sold it to me when you were describing it and the splashing in fords is always gunna be fun Very Happy. It will just be me going however as Lou has got her dissertation.

I didn't know they would be there. In that case I might as well take mine and ask you what your plans are and if you wouldn't mind me been part of them?

If yes... can I ask which day you plan on going over? which day you plan on heading home? and if your tent is having electric hook up?

I was planning on going over maybe late Friday morning and coming back Monday whenever, I wasn't going to bother with electric hook up as I'll probably be taking my power pack.

I could come to yours given its pretty much on my way there and we can convoy over if you like? If not no worries.

Well The Splash Dash weekend is over, a little earlier for Dale and me as we decided to call it quits due to the weather and came back Sunday evening rather than Monday morning. But despite the weather it was a great weekend. The organisers were most welcoming and everyone was easy to laugh with. The roads were fantastic! Up, down, this way, that way ,slant ways and hump ways there wasn't a dull road. Think the machine we were in helped to be honest Very Happy

The legend that is The Mistress set for the weekend


The journey there. Trailer blends in to look like its not there.


To give an idea of the campsites location


Dales new tent



Evening meal at The Tan Hill Inn, highest pub in England


Back at the campsite Dale decided he had enough of the cold so...


Night night


I couldn't figure out the cryptic quiz so coloured in instead.





More often than not, sheer drops, but abit of wire would keep us safe this time






Sunday morning Splash Dash


Yeah we might miss out that ford

Had a great time too! Shame about the constant rain and me feeling ill all weekend. That definitely took the edge off for me.
Still, fantastic weekend and as you say great roads and great company. Great pics and vids - although where's the internal one of the splash where we nearly drowned? Lol

Not sure if you knew but the last vids were done by John from English Water Fords - nice to see and I love the slo-mo parts in the last vid.

Cheers Ian for taking a risk and joining me on a new event, I'm sorry it was so cold(ok, maybe that's a serious understatement!) and wet. And I hope you haven't caught whatever it is that I've had all weekend.

P.s. Thank god I got a new wiper motor !!

Here you go Dale- https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NKn3sTU29MM
I thought the vids by John were someone from the event, still, good publicity for the mistress Wink
Got to try new things and events to keep the spice alive. My only suggestion with this event is if they did it abit later in the year for warmer weather.
I've not got your illness...yet lol.
I'm gunna miss reaching for the wiper switch for you.
