    Very handy.   A previous train was delayed just enough for me to catch it at Leeds instead of having to wait an hour for the next one

    Even the gods are helping.   No seat mind you but I have a can of cider to swig while sitting in the doorway and shouting at random people

    Easy now – lets not have a thread derailment 🙂

    You should have bought a paper…. Jeremy.

    I missed the start of this whole story – but this forum is alright isn’t it – some of the people here really are genuinely quite OK. 🙂

    I could probably count on my genitals the number of posters I wouldn’t want to share a pint with.

    Good people all round.

    It take a lot of balls to say that

    Awesome chaps.

    How did the fund raising go in the end?

    Any ideas??

    I’m laughing and crying in equal measure

    This.

    I’ve a vision of tj with tandem on the Yaris, gnumas looking like the lead character from Waking Ned and Marko with full WRC pits ready…

    How did the fund raising go in the end?

    Current total over 800 quid. Great stuff all round.  Though not sure how much is left after tj’s pasty and cider bill.

    Yep, keys through the right letterbox. (Kinda feels like I should be at a swingers party……)

    Jeez! Car was only worth about £300! I’m astonished.

    Should be loads to get it back into tip-top shape, Yaris bits are cheap, train fares and petrol money for those delivering, tax and insurance. Anything else we need? If there’s any spare MrsH (car donor for those who missed that thread and just arrived here) and I have a pot for these guys http://radcliffedonkeysanctuary.co.uk.gridhosted.co.uk/ could we send the surplus there please? Everyone OK with that?

    TJ – love how you’ve really got into the spirit of this. Made me smile. And you kicked it all off.

    Be great  to do a pre pay fuel card , so the car is not a large ongoing cost and gets used to good effect by the family gnusmas. if such a thing exists .?

    Chew – your turn now!  Is it Saturday you are heading south?  More ginsterfueled action please.

    I really enjoyed my drive today in the end.  A gentle cruise down the A roads.  A7, bit of M6, A6 shap, A65 kirbylongsdale, skipton Halifax.

    Sorry chaps – not technically literate enough to get live tracking – thats a challenge for Chew – especially as the 12 socket is borked
