Busy weekend

Got a call from the owner of the farm where Ive been storing my ol Landrover hybrid trialler to say he needed me to move it, as one of his sheds had collapsed under snow during the winter and he had 3000 chickens to re home. Sunday me and my son Angus took the trailer up to the farm and brought the buggy home. Angus and his mate plan to put it back into trialling order.

Three runs with the railler had the buggy, the body panels and the spares back to the lock up and stored away safely. By the time it was all done, it was time to light the first barbeque of the season and crack open a couple of beers 8-)
