    Back from our Antipodean travels and the call of the Zed was too great. Got her out to make sure she was ok after her winter hibernation, then taxed her and off we went. A short run up the Peaks for lunch and home. Roof down all the time but notice the snow in the photos:eek:.
    It was 29 C on route to the airport last week, it was 8 today, bit chilly for us:whistle:.

    Great day, roll on the next one...

    Yes we had a few snow flurries yesterday up this neck of the woods. Winter is hanging on here:(
    At least your travels didn't include a 17 hr flight Malc;)

    Great trip Dave!:thumbsup:
    It's so good to feel the air in the face again!
    Here too we had an excellent week: 20-25 C at noon, every day!:)
    I didn't take the Zed for insurance reasons;), but I did it with my Jawa, continuing the running in stage!
    It was really great, few hundreds km in the sunny days!...:)

    Haha we share the same wedding anniversary so we're due a small run locally and a meal at our favourite pub. If you behave you may get an invite to the meal when I'm out of here. ;)
