Salisbury weekend

Post by syncropatrick »

Mornin' Aidan. Oh no! Bad luck. At least it's a minor, isolated fire but nevertheless definitely unwanted onroute from a 4am start. Enjoy your brews!

I'm here with Neil and family and Rob. Neil in Sally's new Syncro, which has a moustache painted on the front panel! :cheese

You were not alone Aidan, took me two bites of the cherry - Friday and v early Saturday to make it. 6 hours on hard shoulder was chastening. 2wd lasted 90 miles and then got carted home. Got there today with Nick. And it was great , scenery, routes, company. Jeds winch, Patrick's tow ball. Sunshine, mud. We had the lot. Happy Syncro days. We even managed to not drink the case of Kentish ales I have put together for you. Next time. :ok

Two hours jet washing every nook and crannie - Doka has a complete set of engine protection..... Even in there was complete carnage. Only interior of cab to do now which Sommelike. And I only did one day and avoided the longest & deepest run - which did teach us something - Jed needs a new sliding door seal :shock: :shock:

Yes some good dunks taking place. Got to say in my limited experience it's a lovely relaxed place to cruise around , open , good mild lanes with the odd gnarly section. Loved the feeling that we were out 'touring' . 360' views. Unexploded ordinance , what more could you want?

Used a pay jetwash to dump the kilos of exterior mud in someone else drain. Now at home and pondering the muddy insides..... over a Guinness!

Jes mate - you need cab step rubber foot treads. :lol:

Got back a little while ago. Big thanks for the moral support with the van this afternoon, all sorted now though and a new MAF sensor ordered so not the end of the world. I didnt take any pictures really only a couple on my phone and it was nice to finally meet Jes and get rid of that bloody rim and also meet Hill and Baz for the first time.
