I misheard the news about the vote yesterday. More confusion to follow.
No frost here, outside temperature down to 36F.
Sporting activity this morning followed by a 70mph drive back home on the A303. No problem or skinned knuckles fitting the wheel clamp.
A raised air intake that doesn't increase wading depth is as useful as a chocolate fireguard.

That was my thought Alan. According to LRO, JLR have advised that it is only to prevent in ingress of dust. How quickly will the likes of safari snorkel make one that is waterproof?

the snorkel is probably designed for the people with too much money that want the cosmetics to look like they offroad, safari snorkel will produce one no doubt

They do stick-on mud so there’s probably synthetic dust available too for that authentic Chelsea “overlander” look... Laughing

Our dogs create loads dust. I wonder if I could bag it up and sell it to such owners.

I was looking forward to a relaxing hour in front of the TV with a beer and flicking through the latest LRO. Except Mrs K had arranged for me to help the father-in-law tidy his garage. It wouldn’t be too bad but he doesn’t throw anything away. And still wouldn’t throw anything away whilst we were trying to tidy up! Even a solid bag of cement that went off some years ago. Rolling Eyes When his back was turned, mother-in-law took the opportunity to fill bin bags with some of the junk! Smile

I know someone like that. He rents a barn filled with automobilia, engines, gearboxes and a multitude of assorted bits. I used to help him "tidy up" which involved moving bits from A to B, B to C, C to D and D to A. Very little was thrown out. Next time the whole process was repeated until inevitably everything ended up in its original place.
Back to the Otter today. The Good Old Boy isn't too bad but it's a bit heavy whereas the Otter is much lighter.

A few years ago I helped him remove an engine from an Aston Martin DB2 that was left to him in his mate's will. That's the classiest car I'm ever likely to work on.
The throttle linkage was a work of art unlike the bent bits of wire on my Series 3. Every joint was an adjustable ball joint.

You never know when something like that is exactly what you are looking for to weight something down. Actually I have a pretty good idea - a week or two after you have thrown it out!

So do I - me. Actually, this is what farms are for - storing junk in case it is ever needed (and you thought they were for growing stuff and the like, didn't you - hah!)

The real reason for discovering the word why is "Daddy, why didn't you buy me that pedal centre steer Land Rover at Newbury last year?"
