Hello

That's something that I would be interested in, weather permitting. I've had all my jabs and booster. Is there anything else I need to cross the border ?

Typical Coupe style, checking over things and it looks like a small coolant leak. It’s at the drivers side, I think it has all the hallmarks of a duff coolant cap, new one on the way, hopefully that’ll do the trick.

Are we sure that the hotel is open for food ?
Website suggests not.

Hello Everybody

I'm afraid that Valerie and I won't be coming on Sunday.

I hope that you have a good day, and we look forwards to another opportunity.

Aye there will be other times Paul. Yesterday and today I’ve been cleaning my Coop ending with a ceramic spray. Looking pretty shiny, takes ages though. I’ll be up at 5am fiddling about, then off at 6am. The A9 is one of those roads that you never know what it entails, and of course the dreaded yellow peril cameras, so easy to make very good time and get carried away spending the next 2 weeks keeping an eye on the mail. Hopefully an easy run down and see you all tomorrow…….. driving

Well done Jim, quick work indeed - 3.5 hrs from Abbotsford thumb

Great effort all round especially after some unexpected food/coffee-related problems mid-morning (Leadhills and Wanlockhead closed)

After that the weather held up, good lunch and chat at Moffat then a leg-stretch at the Grey Mare's Tail along the big glaciated valley on the road to Selkirk. Cuppa at Abbotsford House then home smile

And...


Although the trip did its best to replicate that devised by George, seasonal closures were to cause route deviations by mid-morning; it was nice to know that his two lads were up for joining us and I'm sure he would have approved of our eventual choice - RIP George thumb

Thanks for the photos Simon.

Cars and the countryside look great, but the drivers look chilly, not cool.

If only we had come, you needed a slower, but red coupe !

Best wishes to everyone

Paul

Good photos there Simon. Quick wash of the Coop and dried, tucked up in my garage. Unfortunately it has sustained a couple of battle scars, two gouges to the near side sill. I did hear a few bangs to that area while tailing Simon car weaving our way on the Lanark twistiest. Yet another thing to address on the Coop. banghead

Great day out and great to see everyone. Sorry I had to scoot off early but did manage to have a good run back across on to the M74. How was the rest of the afternoon to Abbotsford House?
