I'm surprised it hasn't got a "Police Aware" sticker on it.
K series engines as used in petrol Freelanders have a very small coolant capacity so any coolant loss however small can have catastrophic repercussions.

The only thing I have to report is that the Freelander has gone. Nothing notable has happened.

It's stopped raining. In Wales that's a notifiable event.

Hi boys,

Just got back from Gran Canaria at 0100hrs. Have I missed much other than the election nonsense, C-word songs on repeat and rubbish weather??? Smile

The 90 is still parked up, which was one of my biggest concerns. Evil or Very Mad

Quickest way to get a car vandalised! Although it usually doesn’t take long for someone to notice an abandoned vehuand put a brick thru the window and nick bits off of it.

What’s the scrap value of a freelander with a cooked engine?

I weighed myself this morning, just out of interest after a week at a five-star full-board hotel, and I’m two pounds lighter than before I went! Not sure how that happened. Confused

It was our first proper holiday as a family. I’m renaming baby knappster as little knappster. She’s grown up loads in a short space of time, and is fast becoming a little madam! She’s also developed a liking for late nights and dancing by the looks of it! Surprised Smile

I saw two landies on holiday. A very nice 110 station wagon expedition prepped and a very tidy early disco 1. Presumably, the nice weather and lack of salt on the roads means that it hasn’t suffered from the rust issues that discos have in the UK. Rolling Eyes

I managed to read the entire latest issue of LRO, something that I haven’t done for a few years due to time. I usually read the articles that are of interest, letters section and the classifieds but on a four hour flight each way and a few hours with little knappster sleeping, I had some reading time again. Smile And I managed to read a couple of issues from the last couple of months too. And little knappster picked up a copy a couple of times saying “find daddy’s Land Rover” much to the annoyance of Mrs K! Laughing Very Happy

Welcome back Rich. Now, will the 90 start?
I'll try and find out what happened to the Freelander, that's if I can get any sense out of the one who professes to know. Perhaps his diet of hydrocarbons and funny chemicals will obliterate any memory.
I'm sitting in the pub enjoying a pint of Butcombe.

Let’s hope so. I’ll try it either tomorrow or Monday.

The farthest I've been this year (and last) is junction 13 of the M4,the Newbury showground for the Land Rover spares day. My cheap day trips to Antwerp are a distant memory.
I was wondering when baby K would get promoted.

My Honda CB500X - nice little bike. £185 for the service, of which £31 was for 'superior' racing oil, £8 for the miniscule oil filter, and 95p for a copper washer. The rest was for 'a comprehensive multi-point check by a fully qualified and experienced Honda trained technician'.
Ordinarily I would do the servicing myself but the bike is still in warranty so I feel it is better to have them do the service - I have had warranty problems in the past and don't want to go there again.
