My sister is back from New Zealand for 6 months or so and might be interested in the Micra.

Obviously a PM to @CraigRK will work.

Always enjoy seeing the boot sale spoils of war. Where are the 2 (non Utah) plates from? Don't recognise them at all!

Well. 

 

Tickets bought for Craig and I. 

 

I may need to head to Louisiana for a few days after Craig leaves.

Being the preamble to the 2024 trip, I am busy getting a schedule together for @CraigRK and I   

 

We have decided to revisit quite a few friends that hr last saw in 2019

 

I also have 24 days compared to his two weeks. 

 

One of my wishes or dreams is to head down to Louisiana and do some fishing and hunting. 

 

Inspired by Keith and Tara 

 

Take a look.

I have never been down there and don’t know anyone but I have an extra week to go and get there. 

 

I have spoken to Clem and Kim in Fayetteville and space is booked in their AirBnB Rockhouse205 

Spoke to Andy in Terlton Oklahoma, he has new toys and 200 tons of gravel to move down a mountainside to build a swimming pool. JB now has a new oil job in Wichita, Kansas and managed to find a garage for his daily where he is living near work and is waiting for us and may visit us at Dennis’s house for lunch too.

 

Not sure if everyone who reads this know what a Purple Heart Medal means. But I called long time friend Steven Hansen in Jonesboro last night. He was awarded two of them. Now headed toward his mid 80’s this past year has brought him a broken pelvis, Encephalitis, (learning to walk again) falls, sutures and a general slowing down. But he is game for Louisiana. It was great talking to him, his spirit as strong as always,,despite his body saying different things. 

 

So a few pics to whet the appetite. 

 

I am certainly excited. 

 

Craig is too. 

 

And Dennis. 

 

 

I made some spicy chicken wings this morning just to warm up for the USA trip.

I have collected number plates for a very long time. 

Mate Fil @sparkplug knows this and keeps an eye out for cheap/free and unusual plates for me. 

Last week when he brought the free Compressor the plates that accompanied it included a pair of Thailand plates and my first Utah plate. 

I have been to Thailand and even then I didn’t manage to find a single plate. 

SUPER CHUFFED. 

So a massive win thanks to Fil. 

Last weekend he texted from a bootfair to ask of a £1.00 UK  plate was of interest. Of course it was. 

Into the Grizz pile.

Yeah that's not all that far from here, about 45 miles. A good portion of the coast is like that down this way.

 

You're welcome to stop by if you're ever in the area though!


This may be my target. 
 

Cheap accommodation in the region the objective.

206 CC 

 

 

 

Amazed that this little gem has not found a home. 
 

But somehow it has reached a stalemate. 
 

Any not so weird swaps around?

 

That doesn’t mean that I am inviting anyone to give me a royal rogering.  
 

Message from @CraigRK earlier sums it up. 
 

I am in Rochester Kent, as is the car. 
 

PM if interested. 
 

PS:

Why don’t you still go ahead and offer the Pug for swops for something minivan-ish that has  a c.6 month ticket?   Berlingo, Pug Expert, etc.

We see if that gets the frog out of the fold and I’ll sort out with you.

If we land up with something we flog it on again when I find a D-cab/Vito

Speaking to Dennis via Messenger over the weekend as we often do, he mentioned that “my truck” was back home waiting for me. 

 

He has been busy rebuilding this car. 

 

Friday night fun in Missouri…… 

 

Motorway shenanigans. 

 

First time @CraigRK  visited Dennis took him out to the motorway in this. Perfect introduction to ‘Merica.

So currently he is building this car. 

 

Loads of new parts, new engine etc. 

 

So our chat went like this. 

 

 

Looking forward to this year’s trip.
