That's it, back home after a 2,500 mile trip (1300 of which were getting to & from our destination) to the Loire valley.
The modified MK2 boot rack carried the RX7 alloy spare wheel O.K. luckily the spare was not needed. I think I'll look for an uprated pair of gas struts for the boot lid, if only to stop trapping my fingers when the lid slams down, elfin y'know.
The weather was good most days, I put the roof up on 4 days, 2 of which were when we drove to & from Folkestone.
For me the highlight was Amboise & Leonardo Da Vinci's last home, well worth the entrance fee. SWMBO preferred Chenonceau & Saumer.
That may be our last big tour. I say that every year at about this time but as next spring approaches I get itchy feet. We've always wanted to revist Venice & Rome, maybe next year?
