After moving from Southampton to South Wales 7 years ago, various personal major events have occurred which resulted in Land Rovering taking a back seat. I didn't consciously leave the club, I just unfortunately allowed my membership to lapse. Now the 110 is undergoing a fairly major refurbishment and will be back on the road very soon. I hope to be attending club events again.
A lot of people in the club know me personally (new members obviously don't). I look forward to conversing with you all again.

Welcome back John. Wondered where you'd been.

Welcome back, Big John. Good luck with the refurb. Any chance of some before, during and after pix?

Cheers
Geoff

I'll take some piccies just to keep everyone amused. The main problem has been the dreaded tin worms. Mind you, they've been at it for 30 years so they have a head start on me.

The original choices were:
1) Do her up and sell her, then maybe buy another one.
2) Do her up to keep her.

We soon realised how attached we are to the old girl (the Landy not the wife) so option 2 won the day. That was about 2 months ago and I'm still working on her.

Hi John, nice to 'hear your voice' again.
There was no way you would fix up the Landy and then sell it and buy another one!
