A good round trip.

Hi to all,

Two hundred and ninety miles all round from Friday until Monday, but not without a few hic-ups on the way home when the M74 was like a water way instead of a motorway, A couple of overtaking heavy's put such a wall of water they knocked out my electric's.
So it was a dive for the shoulder and try to keep the old lady firing until she cleared and stopped spluttering, but we kept going up to the next campsite.
Pothole's were the a bit hard on the old suspension, might have a bit of repair work to do there.
But good to get moving again and put some miles on the clock, Having made the trip inspite of the water I did see quite a number of modern vans on the hard shoulder, that did make me wonder.

That's the good thing about the old wagons, once they dry out they should be okay. New vans have so much electronics that a bit of water can kill them.
