    We notice the enormous gaps either side of your Zed, Dave. Has this parking habit only occurred since acquiring the 4, cos we don't remember you parking so far away from anyone else before!!!!! You must have driven hundreds of mile to find a parking space that BIG!!!!

    Be careful driving home, see you soon.

    It's nice to go away but great to be home! Thanks for allowing me to revisit so many wonderful miles and memories of my travels over the big water. JIM
