Well we have started our epic trip and on day 4 there has been a few changes already.
We are no longer going to Ireland this end of the journey, nor John O'Goats. We have been up to Ullapool and decided to we would skip Ireland as we thought the weather may not be the best (it has rained since we left) as it's the green isle and all.
Instead we have are heading down through main land UK to lands end, London and then France in a bit of swoop. The Bike is going well, only a small alteration needed with an angel grinder. The rear axle was rubbing a little on the left exhaust after me putting it back in a slightly different position post rear end rebuild. The intercom works well and is nice to be able to talk to Jo along the way, even if most the noise heard is teeth chattering.
As I said before the weather has not been the kindest since we left although not as bad as it could be. Reading the newspaper today, it says that it snowed in the Cairngorms as we passed through but all Jo and I noticed was the freezing wind and rain.
We are currently in Perth and catching up with Friends and their new puppy. It's very cute and I think I may have to check the luggage to make sure she has not been stashed away somewhere. We are being treated to delicious food and generally loving being homeless and jobless !
I must say at this point our blog entries may be a bit hap hazard and of course my friends at the Aboyne Academy English Dept must read this with one eye closed. As there may be quite a few errors :-) I will be putting some photos up soon.
