Update on progress

Days to go : 283

With Christmas nearly here, there hasn’t been a lot of progress.

Norfolk & Suffolk 4X4 Response was on standby all through the weekend on behalf of the East Anglian Ambulance Trust, because of the snow.  As a result, and because the fuel tanks are now behaving themselves, I refitted all my kit back in the boot (taking a few pictures and adding an article of course) so that I was ready if required.

The other day I did remove the mesh floor and hi-lift bracket from the roofrack in preparation for modifications to take the roof tent.

The last couple of days I have been ‘fettling’ with the website to finally get it the way I like it.  There are still a few more tweaks I would like too add but I need to find suitable modules first.

 

Rear recovery socket

I was always fed up with the rear tow bar digging into the ground when I went offroad.  However, it was an excellent rear recovery point.   I wanted to maximise my rear departure angle and still provide a solid fixing point if (when) I needed pulling out.

Boot storage system

I have seen many ideas with regard to equipment storage.  Boot drawer systems are good but very expensive for what they are.  So I decided to build my own system.

I have added this page as I thought some of you may be interested in how this site has been developed and how it works.

Wales Jan 2007

In January 2007 we decided on a change of venue and stayed at Llanerchindda Farm in Llandovery in Wales.

The accommodation was wonderful and the local lanes very challenging and surrounded by staggering views.  Highly recommended.
