Quick run

A quick relaxed run while the rain holds off for most of the day, keeping to the drier roads.

Holiday in North Devon

Managing to pick a lovely week, we took a well-earned break in North Devon. Dobby covered just over 700 miles while we visited places on the coast such as Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Westward Ho!, Lynton & Lynmouth. We also toured Exmoor including Exford, Dunkery Beacon, Dunster, Tarr Steps and Dulverton. The plethora of single track roads combined with steep gradients and sudden bends brought some added excitement to the proceedings – especially when encountering the odd large farm vehicle approaching in the other direction. Dobby made light work of Porlock Hill, a renowned long 1 in 4 hill on the A39 although slightly hot under the bonnet by the top.

Yet another run

Time again to stretch Dobby's legs and this time fill up with petrol ready for our trip to North Devon next week. This was followed by a little tweak to the idling speed.

A breath of fresh air!

Time to burst forth - Dobby was feeling very let down because, with all the lovely flowers in everyone's gardens (courtesy of lockdown) and plenty of breezes to blow around all the pollen, I had not driven him because of my hayfever. At last it had abated sufficiently for me to give him a good hour's healthy run of about 27 miles. Dobby feels much better having had some exercise.

Favourite run again

Having completed the service this week and given the spoked wheels their annual shine up, it was lovely to take Dobby out for his favourite (human free) run with a couple of errands thrown in. Dobby is looking forward to being allowed to be with other NGs again.

Service time

Servicing has begun in fits and starts as there seems to be so much else to do.

Support our Heroes

Today Dobby’s “Support Our Heroes” rally plate arrived and he is now proudly wearing it on his nose. They can be obtained from Scenic Car Tours who are donating the cost of the rally plate to the NHS Charities Covid-19 Appeal.
