ok again our host Clive and this wife have look after us in there beautiful house

we had a great day out off roading and went to see some caves where we could walk 1200m underground and it was the best caves i have seen for a long time
we left the house and our poor host had to help get a dustcart out of the mud . please note the street arenot tarmac but just pure mud and can be very deep but fun just getting to the house

Ok this morning as we left the front brakes were not working so we return to base
Clive came back as well and between Clive and Wayne they found I was missing a bolt on one of the calliper which had cause the brake pipe to move and crack
So new bolt with thread lock make a new brake pipe check the rest of the bots as well, then bleed the brakes, test drive and all well again.
Also we fix a few minor jobs as well. So not bad of a force day off.

roast dinner today

the chicken was kill this morning, still taste nice
