Laguna escapades **CHEEKY BUGGERS 23/03**

Recommended Posts

Yep, this one is actually pretty tense. Not for the car, I'm sure it's everything Rob says it is and more, but I'm doing this in between shifts at work, and I'm due back at work at 1130 tomorrow.

At the moment, I'm digging out at work:

I'm expecting to arrive with Rob at around 8:20pm tonight then I'll turn around and head back on the 300 mile journey.

At least the weather is good.

Oh. Oh dear.

Just got home from work, bag is packed, and we're about to head off to the next part of the journey.

I'm sure it'll be fiiiiiiiine.

I remember reading about how great the heaters were..

 

 

I've told him to wear layers.  I'm sorry to say the heater is indeed rubbish!

 

300 miles home from south London?  That'll be Penzance then.  Crikey.  I drove it 3 miles to Screwfix on Tuesday evening, so I'm sure it'll be fine....

Good luck with that! Will you have any time for sleep before your next shift?

If I'm lucky, a few hours of shut eye will occur. Not overly ambitious of that though!

 

Rob - close, just outside Camborne!

For the love of god man! WHY?! 2 exhausts on an i10?!

 

Top tip for driving a car with hardly any heater in sub zero temperatures... wear a sleeping bag.

I've brought a set of thermals, and this fetching little number with matching trousers. Basically a sleeping bag you can walk in!

Plymouth. My childhood home town. The driver needed to take a break for his hours so I had a quick wander.

 

Bear in mind, this is the sight you are greeted with when you get off the coach.

This made me giggle though.

Back on the road in 15 minutes, so I had time to pick up a new set of headphones (my earphones had broken prior to the journey so only the left one worked) and an Ivory Dewdney pasty

Whilst I for one welcome an increase in Lagunaposting, the newz sez that driving in that there Cornwall isn't going brilliantly right now...

Were you planning to go back tonight?

 

Be safe M8.

He's got newish Arrowspeed summer tyres on the front, and slightly aged Michelins on the rear. I'm sure he'll be fine...

 

But seriously, yes do take care. He's been offered overnight accommodation in Yeovil so has a plan B.

Came off the platform and made a beeline to this tantalising machine.

Rob was a proper gent and I'll forever be grateful for his hospitality.

Had a quick snoop at his lovely retro Renault as we spotted a few flakes falling.

PEZ SHOT.

 

Stopped for Scran and to catch up on the latest traffic news. Not great news actually, both the A30 and A38 are closed so I'm going to do some head scratching and think of a plan.

 

Car is running lovely though. Small victories!a92994ec7b5b40e9bfd3297e8ebe8fe6.jpg
