Too hot to continue with my burden of some 300 metres of hedging so went for a walk at Horsey.20190717_105432.thumb.jpg.c42384099ef8943dfd857b004dc5c8b2.jpg

THURSDAY 25th JULY 2019

Drove to Buckinghamshire stopped for fuel just east of Cambridge. Don't see that temp in the car often.20190725_122446.thumb.jpg.40b2dbb7c1419d6a901fb99b844b1313.jpg

FRIDAY 26th JULY 2019.

Yes, OK, I know I say every year that I am not going to The Game Fair ever again but I am addicted. Seemed smaller this year and better. Gunmakers row much better. At Hatfield House again. They seem to have settled on Hatfield and Ragley. I think Blenheim and Harewood was a better choice.

SATURDAY 27th JULY 2019

For a Bucks man I have never been to Stow. Stunning landscaping by Capability Brown even in the "Dreek"

one rescue boat would have done, how many rescue boats do you need for one man? 

I believe (although happy to be corrected), that the Fire Service require an additional boat on scene as stand-by should their boat in the water get into difficulties.

As Henry Ford said when Ferrari were bleeting saying "It's not fair" to have to take on the might of Ford.

G/box let go.  It was booked in next week for bearings and the like, now however it needs a full exchange box at £1300 inc vat and labour.  Van was due to have about £600 spent on it in suspension / brakes at the end of this month, then a timing belt change another £300., 2 x new front tyres £200 So total to get it back on the road now stands at around £2'300.  Van ain't worth that and I would be running on an engine that has now done 180'000.  So it's time for an upgrade.  Dive down back of settee for a few coppers and lets see what we can come up with, in a hurry too.

I have ‘Found’ a Ford Transit Custom sport 2:2ltr 155bhp. It’s four years old, one owner with just 18000 on the clock. That’ll do it for me. Now to cobble the brass together

Good vans those Transit Customs, a couple of years ago I spent 10 days or so driving a base model one in support of a Lands End to John O Groats cycle ride - bascially spent 10 hours a day in it - very comfy, really nice to drive with a great gear shift and I found the cab had some really nifty storage solutions too!

Now how reliable they are I have no clue...
