    Default T&K new arrival....

    The purchase is finally complete; handover Tuesday afternoon; much to my son's disgust (he will be at an A level revision class!) I've recruited a mate to accompany me on the maiden voyage across the vast expanses of untamed ocean between Wargrave & T&K.

    Mini-keg of Loddon Brewery Hoppit at the ready.

    Mooring F29 reserved for AKAMAS......

    Anyone else at T&K?

    Cheers

    Simon

    Brayman moors there but WHATEVER YOU DO do NOT give him any of your Loddon Brewery Hoppit as he is deadly allergic to beer. He may protest that it is not so, just to avoid hurting your feelings, but do not pay any heed to his protestations.

    Thanks for the heads-up Paul: I'd hate to be the new boy who poisons one of the locals ......

    I made it home you will be pleased to know, and no worse for wear - that is visible anyway!

    Absolutely splendid thanks.....and a real eye-opener:-

    * 2 1/2 hrs to do a 15 minute drive......utterly relaxing :-)
    * Perfect entrance to Shiplake Lock (despite the stress levels and dry mouth!) so delighted as a real newbie
    * Met a very nice couple from Sunbury whilst waiting at Sonning: apologised in advance for my slow progress, of which they were extremely understanding.
    * Complete mess at Sonning and finally moored thanks only to the lockie lending a spare pair of hands, both to pull my rear in on arrival as well as to push me away on exit ........and some titters from other owners coming the other way.
    * Perfect mooring at T&K much to my (and friend's) suprise!

    It was a delightful way to spend my first few hours on the river. Once my son came over later on, we just did a loop to Reading then back to Sonning without going through locks.....amazing how pretty the Cemetary Juntion area is from the river!!

    Wonderful....just wonderful.....cant wait till the weekend!

    Thanks Martin.....just look for the one zig-zagging down the river.

    Alternatively just listen out for screams of 'Not like THAT!!!' or 'WHO's stupid idea was this ANYway?'

    I expect overnight stays at T&K once Post-Maritime Stress sets in :-)

    Default T&K

    Should be there some time over next weekend so wil try and pop round and say hello. We are on B pontoon.

    Keep practising the locks. You will soon get the hang of it. You will still muck it up now and again, usually when there is a big audience, but don't fret, we all do that from time to time.
