The Scottish Trip

Forgive me readers, it’s a bit overdue, but I’ve been busy living life to the full……

Last year we did a “late late Burn’s night trip” and this was such a success we decided to run it again this year.  The musical hit of last year was “Donald where’s your Troosers”, so this year our event was aptly titled “Hunt for Donald’s Troosers”.

We assembled our friends, split into two convoys, one for the very experienced heavy duty dune bashers, and the other for those who like the dunes at a more sedate pace.  This photo shows  a small selection from our 15 cars – we had guests from NZ, USA, England, Scotland, Wales, India, UAE, South Africa.

After driving around for a few hours – we found some really good smooth dunes, we headed back to our camp and started cooking for our 25 guests.

After serving eating a hearty traditional scottish meal – with halal alternatives for our muslim friends – Neil led the singing and stories.  Neil had compiled a booklet with history and words to give to our guests, and we all joined in singing O, my luve is like a red red rose, Loch Lomond, Wild Mountain Thyme, A man’s a man for a’ that, Flower of Scotland and of course the Andy Stewart Classic – “Donald, where’s your troosers”.

All in all it was a great day, big thanks to our friends for coming along, hope you all enjoyed the driving and company as much as we did!
And we never did find Donald’s troosers, so we will have to do it again next year!
