A few of us made it down to Nanton today for the firing of the Merlins on the Lancaster.
A fantastic day for a cruise, and a kind of rag tag bunch making the trip, Mike and Ardith Holtz arriving shortly after me after solo blats down #2 at a fairly aggressive rate of fuel consumption, and both of us arriving before the club "group", consisting of Mike Coe, Trevor Beatson, John Towler and Davis Masri. Terrance Walters also made the trip ( uncharacteristically with his top UP ) with Elliot navigating.
I had a surreal day, connecting with a trio of guys previously unknown to me and each other, but having connections of places, family or friends in common with me. As a result of long conversations with these guys separately through the day, I became not only the first to arrive, but the last to leave.
Oh, and I racked up some more Moss Motoring Challenge points into the bargain. A great day.
