Happy Birthday Blog

We completely failed to notice that the Blog was 1 year old.  So happy birthday blog!

There’s also been a lack of updates since we returned from our quest to find mainland UK’s most easterly point.  Poor Betty Bus has been off the road.  We’ve been trying to track down an overheating issue (changed just about everything, so is probably the gauge not showing the correct temperature).  Then the poor old girl had a starting problem (now fixed) and another oil leak.

But we’ll be back on the road soon for another year of adventures, mild peril and sleeping in service stations.
