Take a lot of petrol to tow Scotland all that way though. It may be better to keep drilling from a redundant oil rig right the way through to the other side.

I was kind of wondering instead of putting in the driveshafts and wheels to get custom driveshafts and a propeller each side?

I've just booked this weekend off work so I can be at the northern. If the activa is running by then I shall be in it, if not I'm coming down in the 205. I'm trusting I shall be allowed entry in it [emoji15] [emoji4]

Hopefully there will be good progress this weekend on the Activa Davie but sadly, due to ongoing happenings in Somerset I will be unable to attend the Northern this year :( I need to make a trip down there...

Thanks chaps, it's "ok".. I've been expecting it for a while. Parkinsons, diabetes and heart issues do not a good combo make. Died in his sleep, no more suffering.

While it is never 'OK' when a loved member of the family dies, it is comforting to know that the pain and confusion has ended. Do what you can to remember the good times.
