20 May

Yesterday I gave the garage a call to get an update on Old Red. He’ll be ready by next weekend!

Suddenly, it’s a reality…

He’s just gotten a new head gasket, and over the next few days the engine will be sorted out and the ball joints replaced. It seems like a lot of work but it’s encouraging that he’ll be coming to me with new parts that I (hopefully) shouldn’t have to worry about for a couple of years. It gives me slightly less to worry about!

At the moment, the plan is that I’ll pick Red up on my first available day off, so that could be Friday 25th but it’s more likely that he won’t be ready until the weekend itself. My next day off after that is already earmarked for falconry (I can’t wait) so it looks like I’m going to have to take some time off if I want to collect the old boy before my next weekend off. This time next week I could be camping…

That’s kind of surreal.
