If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

The camp-site at mine should have a signal, its line of sight to the mast. Can't check right now, the field is under a foot of water

Thinking ferry costs may be a killer on top of fuel, maybe not such a good plan for us.

The ferry to orkney isnt too bad if you go gills bay to st margarets hope, only 50 one way for car and driver. Northlink from aberdeen is another matter all together.

Still VERY tempted by this! Will have to see what we are doing. Don't think we can commit to Goodwood this year so this MIGHT be on the cards.

I love the sound of this trip but sadly my Dormie is t'other side of the pond. I LOVE epic trips and this looks like it will be one of the best. I will follow the plans with interest............
