bitter disappointment!

May 31, 2014


What disappointment!

Seems like the shippers that are returning the JoLon Imp to South Africa are refusing to allow it to travel with all our personal effects!!!

I was so looking forward to letting the folk back here in South Africa see the car as it arrived in the UK with its camping gear loaded on the roof, tools trammel on the roof rack and of course the well used spade strapped to the side of the roof rack, the spade that dug us so often out of the mud on the north Kenyan mud hell.

I was also so looking forward to sitting back in our camping chairs that we had used in my garage all through the JoLon rebuild and it would also be nice if we could cook up a meal in our camping pots n pans again for old time sake.

Sadly the red tape wins again.

Seems like getting the car back to base to prepare it for its next transcontinental journey is proving to be our most arduous task so far.

A big thank you to all those of you involved in looking after my little car while still in the UK, James Spencer and Graham Anderson especially.
