Running Out Of Time

On Saturday morning we are supposed to be jumping into the Sierra and heading south to the Cornish coast, however the Sierra seems to have other ideas.

Some 13 years ago we did the exact same trip, in the exact same car, to the exact same site in Boswinger close to Mevagissey and we had a wonderful two weeks camping. This time we are only going for a week and we have hired a luxury lodge instead of sleeping under the canvas.

Now I'm not sure whether the car remember this trip or if she is just being stubborn but she has thrown plenty of obstacles in Liam's path the last week or so. First the leaking pipework, then the electric fan broke, then the new electric fan didn't work and had to be hot wired to stop the car overheating, then it had to be rewired through the ignition. At the moment the fan is running continuously but we would rather have it this way then the car overheating and it will stay this way until we come back from Cornwall.

The last and possibly most annoying problem is that bloody exhaust again. This time it isn't banging on the bodywork but squeaking in exhaust slings and rubbers. Very annoying so it is back to the garage tomorrow to hopefully, all fingers and toes crossed, get sorted before the long drive south.
