Oct-Nov 2015 –Whitby Goth Weekend
31 Oct 2015
Off to Whitby for the bi-annual Goth Weekend and one of Herman’s favourite climbs; the hills up round Sleights, which he gets to sail down on the way in and struggle up at about 5mph in his crawler gear, on the way back out again. No major issues to report and not much to see that has not already been seen. So here is a token piccie of Herman decked out in his half-arsed Hallowe’en outfit.... [ Read More ]
April 2014 –Whitby Goth Weekend
28 Apr 2014
Off to Whitby for the bi-annual Goth Weekend and one of Herman’s favourite climbs; the hills up round Sleights, which he gets to sail down on the way in and struggle up at about 5mph in his crawler gear, on the way back out again. With accommodation at the usual premium, we weren’t as lucky as we might have been this time and, although we got a nice cottage, there was no parking at all near it.... [ Read More ]

Woo! Scary!
03 Nov 2009
With winter getting ever nearer, we’d got to the time of year when it’s dark by the time I get home from work in the afternoon and usually too bloody wet’n’cold at the weekend to go out and work on the van, even if I wanted to. So work on Herman has pretty much stopped for the next few months, until I come out of hibernation again. That’s not to say he hasnae had an adventure or two.... [ Read More ]
Gothswagen
23 Apr 2009
Not content with going to the far western fringes of wales a week or two ago, this weekend, Herman turned his flat fizzer in the opposite direction and headed off to Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast for our annual trip to WGW. Hulme to Whitby -Herman adventure no.2 Hulme to Whitby [close-up] -Herman adventure no.2 No problems at all on the way there. He chugged along merrily for the three hours or so the journey took and only used about half a tank of diesel.... [ Read More ]
