By 7pm we were putting some final touches on the electrical/solar system and Mark the mechanic decided he didn’t like the sound of the engine and took apart the carb.

‘You’ll never make it’, he says.

At 10pm, minutes before a 10,000 mile journey he tells me I’ll never make it? By the time I get home it’s 3am, I don’t have the van, we don’t know where the carb parts will come from (1975) and the ferry needs my van by Friday 11am and I have a 14 hr drive to get there. Let the good times roll!
