Seasons Greetings
« on: 13 December 2016, 08:03:04 PM »
Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season to all.

If I don't post much in the next few weeks it will be because I am heading off on a road trip for a few weeks to see my boys, grand-daughter and friends down south after lunch today. I have no idea how often I'll be able to get web access but I'll drop in when I can. The map shows the route; it implies we stop short of home but that's only because of google map's limitations. With side trips we usually do about 5000km or 3000 miles, roughly equivalent to London to Kiev return.



Have fun, folks :)
Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.
