Lo and behold, our vehicle was ready complete with a proper toaster (for my crumpets). We unpacked the luggage and arranged the vehicle as best we could, left the spare suitcase and overnight bag in storage at Britz, gave back items we did not want or knew we would not use to save space for more important things. One of the items returned was the proper pop up toaster, we discovered we needed to be connected to a power supply, in other words be in a civilized campsite with other humans and hopefully that will not be happening this trip. There was a very surprised look on their faces when they saw the luxury items returned. Now to get the sim card for the mobile phone and the mobile USB modems for the laptops then off to Lyn's for a couple of night.
What a welcome from Lyn, it is so strange meeting up with friends in their home environments instead of surreal Abqaiq. Rest assured, for those who know Lyn she is just the same <g>. Lyn had obviously seen my comment on FB about crumpets and presented me with a couple of packets and the jam for breakfast the next day, now that is what I call the perfect hostess. Here is the first pic of the blog - CRUMPETS!!
|As you can see this pic was taken this morning after
Alan and I had eaten 4 crumpets
|The Nasty Roundabout!!!!
|Checking to see if the USB modem was working (it didn't
want to know the Mac but was working so Alan completed
the final setup when we got back to Lyn's).
Carla is there in the background proudly showing
the working product <g>
|Here is this years vehicle, anybody got a name for him,
