Fantastic..! We treated my eldest to an hours tuition last year and he dreaded it when he knew. On the day he had a ball. Said it was the best fun and as it was his first hour towards any future licence, the instructor ran him through some initial flight exercises from going up as high as he could to hovering stationary inches off the ground. He said as he was hovering and concentrating hard with the controls he glanced across to his instructor to see him texting his girlfriend..!

Glad you enjoyed it. I think it's a must do when the big win comes in..!

drove to Watts Gallery, near Compton in Surrey to meet up with an ex-work friend. The Welsh rarebit is all ways good.

Chilly when I set off, but a very pleasent afternoon's drive back.

Two old 4/4s and a `54 Plus 4 (twin spare) took advantage of superb autumn weather to slip off into the countryside for a run on roads that follow the earth's contours and draw curving lines through the colours. It's "wildwochen" in all of the country taverns so we lunched on venison and washed it down with very small beers. The drive was the intoxication.

Debating whether to take the Morgan tomorrow over to Ludlow, back Tuesday from Cambridge. If that storm changes direction I don't fancy driving back roofless in high winds.

Just back from a weekend trip.
Friday's drive down the M5 wasn't the most pleasant with the headwind. As i was running early I diverted off at Jn 22 for a drive up Cheddar Gorge - never driven it! Car needs a wash now.
Anyway long round trip to Street, passing an oncoming, roof on, Ivory coloured Morgan before dropping down into Wells.
Saturday, took my pal down to Berrybrook again. Good to meet up with Martin (Deano)and G4LZU (hope I've remembered the call sign correctly). One of the "model" showman's engines was in steam, great to watch, might upload a photo next week. However, what really caught my eye was a Y suffix (1982'ish?) SL280, with hardtop and only 52,000 miles. Tooka while to get the bonnet open, but the car looked really clean and in good condition. Apparently had been traded in against a +8. Surprised there weren't more visitors. Unfortunately, none of Henry's Mum's chocolate cake, though the available cake wasn't bad smile. Back to Street for Saturday evening, then a pleasant drive back via Shepton Mallett, Frome, Trowbirdge and up the A350/A429/A417 to home.
heading north through the village of Kemble and what should be heading south but that dark coloured HT11MOG. Big waves, of course smile
Once I'd turned right off the A429 to head north to Cirencester there was another Morgan heading south toward Tetbury - more Waving of course.
Great couple of days, will really miss the Morgan comradeship out on the road, but knackered knees, plus a need to downsize the "fleet" mean a maximum of 2 motors... frown

Quick run out before the storm and I think lots of others were thinking the same - 3 Lady Diana Audi drop tops and about 6 MX5's with the roof down, big growly bikes and around 3 Lambrettas so a nice selection of vehicles on my 30 mile country trip.

Graham if I'm reading that right you are keeping the Landie and Ford then, you know so many Mog owners you'll never be far away from a ride thumbs.

Graham I believe HT11 are Harry and Steve on here. Met them today at Prescott.
Shocked to hear you are giving up your Morgan, I guess the knee joints are dictating the sale. Bum*er.

The 90 remains - most practical vehicle I own.
Replace Ford with something more "interesting", think emerging classic, perhaps. Thanks for the offer of navigator's seat! smile
Still be at Morgan gatherings, just have to park in the background somewhere! hide grin2

Ian, it's not just the knees. I want more security for photo kit and preferably a drive that doesn't turn into a semi swimming pool at the first sign of a shower...
After 12 good years, the time is coming to move on.
