    This is the first small clip if my trip. While I visited many places, the highlight of it all was being with many of the Zroadster. org forum members. I have spoken of my flight and driving on the roads (giving unsuspecting UK drivers the fright of their lives, poor guys). But the exceptional treatment shown to me by ALL the members was the most memorable part of the trip. There is a bit more than 2 hours of video. Much of it is taken from the cars in which I was riding. Those rides were quite thrilling. The video doesn't give it the justice it deserves but tries to anyway. I always felt like a kid having a lot of fun. Not something I thought I would ever experience again at 63. I think that I have some of you at a disadvantage in that having taken these, I can relive them every time I view them. The experience might not be the same to you and might seem a little dry, almost like sitting at someone's home watching their home videos. I hope this not the case and they keep your interest. I was continually surprised at the fact that many times when I asked a forum member if they had met another member, they replied "no". So this may be a chance for many of you to see and hear another member you have previously known by only a forum name. They are all real people. And to me they are all good people. Preparing this for upload to you tube was a challenge. The first software I used as temporary software left a "watermark" in the middle of this first video. I don't think I'll be using it again. I have a bit more that 2 hours of video which will be metered out to you in about 15 minute clips except for the "evo" trip and perhaps the Rutland cruise. Thanks for watching. Thanks for being a part of my life. With great thanks and respect...........Frankie The first video is from Miller 1098, his farm,family and cars.

    Hey Frankie, I just got in from Monday night's darts and found your video. Absolutely brilliant, many thanks to you and Hugh for this introduction to your visit to the UK. Can't wait for the next instalment .:)

    Ps where did 1098 come from, I think I might have an idea?

    Nice one Frankie, I enjoyed that. :)

    I'm hoping you lost the footage of me having lost the car park we left your rental car at!

    Next installment. With Hugh and the tour of North Wales. One thing that was a first for me in a car.....Hugh's car has tremendous acceleration. The seat I'm sitting in has foam cushion behind it. When he begins a strong acceleration, I am pushed back into the seat. The seat belt takes up the slack and tightens against me. When the car is no longer accelerating, the foam in the seat recovers pushing me forward against the now tightened seat belt. Now i have to release the seat belt and readjust it or stay there being squeezed into the seat by the tight belt.

    FOR SOME REASON, THIS VIDEO STARTS HALF WAY THROUGH. WHEN YOU OPEN IT, RESET IT TO THE BEGINNING OR THE START. FRANKIE

    Third edition: Again with Hugh in North Wales.
    What were we talking about?
    Time line:
    2:30 We referred to the on going banter about sheep in Wales in the forum. What will be the boys in the forum reaction to seeing sheep in the road? Hugh: "They're going to like THAT!!"
    4:55: Typical American notion of England. We look at the map and say "That's England" when only part of the Island is England. We should say UK.
    8:55 Hugh had spoken of the Church of Wales. I would never make fun of someone's religion. Its just that it took me completely by surprise as I had never heard of this before in my life.
