    Heading Exeter-way...it's good to go away in the 'van....motorhoming reduces the stress...

    Stone hits windscreen on M5 at Avonmouth....nice chip right in my field of view...looks borderline full windscreen replacement (10mm) :cry:

    Arrive at pub where I'm staying on the carpark overnight.....find they're not doing meals this time of year :Sad:

    Wind rocking the van....rain pouring down....

    ....and I'm supposed to be on an RSPB Avocet cruise on the Exe estuary in a few days :Eeek:

    Seemed like a good idea at the time :Doh: Anybody want to throw some snow my way....complete the set? :BigGrin:

    Neil,

    Relax with a bottle (or two) of fine ale and let it all pass you by.:thumb:

    :Sad: Aww, no snow on its way to you ....... but a big Joy hug....:Smile:

    At least it was a stone, and not the bloomin' lorry step that hit me ... not much consolation but loadsa understanding for you. x

    Oh...so it was you, was it! Just come back from a walk and it's freeeeezing!

    Good point...considering where the stone hit....if it had been bigger and gone through the windscreen I probably wouldn't be in a fit state to be typing this right now :Eeek:

    I'm not going to risk taking it to Autoglass while I'm away, in case something else goes wrong. I'll take it in next week and see what they think - apparently if it's < 10mm they can still fill the chip rather than replace the 'screen. It'll be a close call :pray:
