August 13th – Goodbye old friend

A sad day, as we empty the truck ready for a trade in tomorrow. Having had this vehicle for the last 16 years, we have very fond memories of adventures in it.

Probably, the most memorable was the time (many years ago) that we took the 4 kids to Northern France in it. Following the Sat Nav, we almost ended up driving through a field, via a farmyard. I can still picture the look of amazement on the farmers face.

Anyway, although the engine and transmission is fine, the bodywork has some major issues, which will cost a lot to resolve and we no longer need an 8 seat, 3 litre vehicle, but we will certainly miss it. It drives so well, and was brilliant when towing our caravan. I even towed a 3.5 ton motorhome out of a muddy field with it.

Bye-bye old friend – We’ll miss you x
