When are you thinking? I fancy a wee run out if you wanted to meet up for a blast andd lunch:)
We leave on the Friday 18th May - Back home on Spring Bank Holiday Monday.
We have too nights on the North Shore of Loch Ness, before heading past Glasgow for the Sunday Night. That's the only night not booked. We want a pub with rooms and decent food as a stop over, but would like to be within 10 miles of M74 / A74(M)
STOP PRESS : Wife is having discussions about which car we go in. (She started this discussion last night as my head hit the pillow)
My plan was the Omega. Auto. cruise control Comfy fast and powerful. Only she won't even think about driving it.
Plus she is concerned that it will break because 190K on the clock.
She won't go in Mx5 because very unlikely to arrive and/or be able to walk.
So then there is HER Juke. Which is MEH. Comfy enough but not as comfy, but not fast, not great handling, and it's unlikely she'll drive much anyway. If at all, It has cruise but is manual. Her thoughts are : Newer and only 40K on clock so will be more reliable.
We all know that age and mileage have some*** impact on potential reliability, but it's really just down to chance if both are maintained correctly.
The thing is this : Now she's questioned the reliability of the omega, if I insist, and it breaks down, I'll get lots of verbal grumpiness - because my fault. If I cave and the Juke Fails to proceed, that'll be just bad luck.
But I can't get the irony out of my head that I've driven 25K without (much) problem, and it's a better car than when I got it.
So I guess I'm going to cave in and "Juke it".
With regards to breakdown's I need to check but I reckon my RAC membership won't cover being on MULL or Skye. But is Recovery to Home, Wouldn't really want to return with car to home, but It's up for renewal in March so I'll pay for the "hire car option" .
