Lions Club "Mitfahrmuseum" today at the Bad Homburger Schloss https://lions-hessenpark.de/event/mitfahrmuseum/ and https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bad_Homburg_Castle .  8 bought one a charity spin around town.  I had a few takers for the Series ... mostly kids.  The exhaust flange manifold is holding fine ... but I think I need a new exhaust manifold-to-motor gasket.  Total mileage 33 (53 klicks) for eight rides averaged 4.1mi/6.6km per ride over five hours, which raised c. 200 for charity ... plus about about 1/4 tank of Shell V-Power 100 at 2.49 per liter.

I dropped into Berwick St John for a few hours today, sorry not to meet you Rob. Nice event with plenty to see and has changed quit a lot since I last showed my series one there.
Lovely day and had a really nice run over the hills from Devizes and managed to include a few byways on the return trip.
2 Thanks.

Follow-up:  The six-hour event raised 10,000 for charity including corporate donations https://mitfahrmuseum-de.translate.goog/2022/09/20/mitfahrmuseum-froehlich-winkend-zum-rekorderloes/?_x_tr_sl=de&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en&_x_tr_pto=wapp .  There were circa 30 cars in action, and I estimate that the sponsors probably donated around 2,500, so 7,500 30 = 250 per vehicle for the day, a bit over what I generated.  I think this is a great fundraising idea, and people were so much more engaged and genuinely interested in the vehicles than the usual "pull up, park, and stand around" car shows.  The annual Militracks show in the Netherlands each year does something similar https://www.flickr.com/photos/143034568@N06/albums/72177720298959815/page2 .  The town-brand Horex motorcycles https://www.horex.com/en/the-horex-story/ with sidecars were in constant use by kids and handicapped people in wheelchairs, and the drivers did yeoman's job keeping up with demand.  Here is my photo album from the day https://www.flickr.com/photos/143034568@N06/albums/72177720302165544 .  I'll follow up with the organizers' photos once they're up.

Romping around the paddock in my friends tired but solid 49. Great fun but zero brakes led to minor fence collision . Oh well , were Intending to swap wings anyway ( at least I wasn't driving then)

A great example of a '96 German Schempp-Hirth Nimbus sailplane!  Western Australia is even greener than I would've thought this time of year.  Wonderful photos.

Got stuck in a wet field of long grass and soft ground while towing a trailer. On my own, miles from anywhere and no phone signal. Managed to extricate myself, got home and had to spend the next hour cleaning vast quantities of mud off the underside.
No photos - don't want to embarrass myself further.  :smiley: I've been a qualified LR off road driving instructor since 1996, so no excuse - just poor terrain observation.

Spend a couple of days clearing brambles, had the Land Rover full of tools. Job done, now to get some of the trees trimmed back and start with the raised beds.

Well not quite today but the day before yesterday! Took my newly acquired Brockhouse type trailer to the local recycling centre to dump some white goods(actually silver and yellow!). Thanks to Trevor Cobb for his kind sale to me a few weeks ago. Long term I hope to pair it with 861443 when its finished rather slap it all over with RAF blue!

Those look like the Easyclean wheels used on the Series 1 Morgans..16 or 17"...also on a Morris 8 or 10.

Hi Tom
Yes I think someone had said that to me the other day. It suited my use without being too modern.

To my eye they look like "Artillery Wheels"  which were popular in the 1930s.....
