Me too :D First saw it on Farcebook very early this morning...

That car will always have a special place in my heart. It was a year ago this month I did the clutch on it...

I'll remember it fondly too. My first and probably only xantia. Might as well, if you only have one, to make it one of the best. If it hadnt been for me wanting an auto with better safety ratings i would not have sold it.

Yes, my calendar made me aware. Sadly, such a distance to travel is now way beyond my abilities and regrettably I will not be attending...

Anything in excess of about 75-100 miles in a day now is now out. Luckily all the other rallies (I think) just about fall within my limits - I hope so anyway...

Damn. I was hoping to convince you to come and ride up Mt. Ventoux with me next year - or rather wait for me at the top for an hour!

As much as I'd love to Mike, and it will always remain one of my big dreams, I'm sorry to say my travelling days are now over. I never really travelled well and now I travel even less well so basically, I no longer try.

I'm more than happy knocking around MK. It has all I want and need in life... Except a beach... Still, can't have everything...

No, it's still travel. 7 hours is 6 far too many and the attendant bureaucracy at the border would kill me. End of...

Only way to get me any distance away now would be to render me unconscious for the entire duration and do all the arrangements and handle all the bureaucracy...

You'll be missed at the Northern Jim, but fully understandable. Hopefully see you at the National.

Looking forward to this weekend, hope the weather improves!

I'll be at the National Ray, it's just within my range, although right on the limit... Looking forward to that one!

I'm foregoing a bike sportive in Cambridge that weekend for the National ;)
