    i was traveling down the med coast of spain.
    didnt go to maroc that year.
    in fact we did drive down through france that year then did spain and portugal . had to leave late as my partner had to have a hospital appointment in january.
    my truck got front ended in quarteira in march . made a right mess of it. luckily although the driver drove off , we actually found the vehicle in a garage waiting repairs. we was sent there by a local scrapyard. i had a window from the pickup that hit mine that had fell off the back and it had vehicle reg etched in. all got sorted and the local police were fine .
    it was the first trip with the mitzy after i converted it from a tipper to artic unit. i wasnt happy that day.
    cant beat keeping diaries to help the mind .
    i drove home with no lefthand light ,just drove in the day. fixed an audi light in till it all got repaired once home.

    Would definitely be fooling around on some beach in Morocco Jim, as these photos were taken around that time. I always spent Jan, Feb and March out there following the Dakar rally out in Jan. kays favourites 032.jpg kays favourites 036.jpg kays favourites 034.jpg

    Closest I can get to your dates nine years ago is Easter around April 8th. Myneighbour at Port Solent had bought himself a power boat but wasn't confident enough on his navigation so we helped him out blasting down to Dartmouth over Easter and home a few days later via one night in Weymouth.

    Note how calm Lyme Bay was on the homeward leg, and of course I was still a pipe man back then.
