You really do have some very beautiful countryside round there don't you? Very nice.

Err. Ok. Might I ask why? I, as do many others, love reading your trips and looking at your photos of work done, they are a highlight. Obviously it's your decision, but....

Last week...



S200KYS 'plate taken off and it reverted to the catchy CX54FWE

Today...



SOLD! GONE!

A guy came to see it yesterday with a mate and had a good look at it, then late last night he asked me if he could come and see it again today, and go for a test drive... So I took him out this morning on tarmac at first, and then took him over a few lovely scenic 'lanes near me to show it's offroad capability...

And we shook hands on t, I drove it to Anglesey where he lives (the big island top left of Wales) and he drove me back...

Mixed emotions posting this, but my health, and particularly my eyesight, have to come first... Ironically the rest of "our little group" have been greenlaning in the Peak District today...

So for now, I'm "retired"! from greenlaning, and Jimny ownership... almost! I still have the buggy in the garage to tinker with, and may be back to do some shorter, gentler greenlaning days next summer (2021) if the buggy gets completed and my eyesight doesn't get any worse...

So, "end of an era"?!

Dave

Definitely end of an era, so sad to see it gone.

However health is more important so here is hoping it at least stabilises and even better if your health improves.

Take care of yourself and all our best wishes.
