New year, new sponsors, new team?

Well, 2011 has rolled around, and Booger Mobile is sitting in Damian's shed waiting to be delivered to the mechanic's for some major work in preparation for the 2011 Camp Quality esCarpade!!

On the agenda so far are (in no particular order):

- Engine rebuild (more power and reliability required)
- Transmission rebuild  (preventative maintenance before adding another 5000km)
- Rear suspension extra leaf and raise (sagged badly during the 2010 esCarpade)
- Front suspension raise  (just for that bit extra ground clearance)
- Front end strengthening (where upper control arm joins the firewall)
- Front end bracing (between front struts)
- Remove seats and carpet and plug up holes!!  (Regular blog followers would remember Scottie's thongs floating away during a flooded causeway crossing on the 2010 esCarpade!!)

As you can see to the right, the blog has been cleared ready for new sponsors.  Of course, Platinum Sponsor Cadist Consulting are back again (for those who don't know, this is Damian's company).  Team Booger Mobile have had several verbal "yep, we'll sponsor you again" replies so far, and Damian will be contacting all 2010 sponsors to see if they would like to again offer their support in 2011 in the coming weeks.

In answer to some other questions that have been posed, again in no particular order:
Where's Scottie?  Well, Scottie has been moving house recently, and having a well deserved break from Damian... 
Will Scottie be back in 2011?  Hopefully... 
Will Booger Mobile still attend the esCarpade without Scottie?  Yes.  There is a contingency plan...
Can I be on Team Booger Mobile if Scottie isn't?  No.  There is a line up already... take a number!

A little birdie says that the 2011 Camp Quality esCarpade will be following a very similar route to the first esCarpade (or Camp Quality Caper as it was known then), since this is the 20th year...  This will mean it will predominantly be in Victoria!!  A long way for Booger Mobile to travel...

Welcome to 2011 - blog posts may be slightly less this year due to the nature of the work happening to Booger Mobile, but as always, they will be exciting, entertaining and sometimes full of complete drivel!!


    What great news it is that the Booger Mobile will be back in the thick of it again,and knowing Damian he will not let us down, keeping every one up too date on how things are progressing with Booger Mobile.Last years esCarpade was a learning experience for Team Booger Mobile, so this year they will be well and truely prepared.
    I for one am looking forward to following the Awesome Team Booger Mobile, once again they are doing it for the kids.
    Thank you "TEAM BOOGER MOBILE"
