Anyone going?
Iím looking for a bit of help. Neil has injured his thumb and his right hand is in a cast and therefore useless. I think Iíll be ok towing the van to the Rally but the question is, do I take the awning? I canít manage it on my own, if someone is going and can help me put it up then Iíll take it. If not weíll have to manage without it.

Thanks Rory. Yes I need a tall (ish) man just to get it into the awning channel. Itís an air awning so itís very heavy. Once itís in the inflating and pegging out is manageable.
Thanks again for the offer.
Of course if itís raining youíre going to be cursing me 😂

Thanks Steve for the kind wishes. He sliced through the base of his thumb with a saw, severing the tendon by 90%. He will be in the cast for up to 12 weeks so heís very fed up but Royal Derby who did the op are very hopeful of a full recovery. Itís postponed our Spring outing to Europe, we were going straight from the EOC rally but it will be September now. It didnít seem sensible to go with only one driver.

Thank you both but I think for modestyís sake the erecting of an awning ought not to be undertaken whilst wearing a dressing gown 😂 😲
Iím very grateful for both of your kind offers and will be taking you up on it, itís just lifting the blasted thing up into the awning rail that I canít manage.

Hi Julie

Just to hopefully cheer you up our son David did something similar when he was at University in Newcastle and had to have an emergency operation to re-attach things.

His was caused by a standing bedroom mirror that decided to stop standing rather than a saw. After a long recovery and doing the painful exercises that he was given he got the full use of his hand again. Let's hope Steve is the same and back to hauling up heavy air awnings into the rail soon.
