Very sad to hear of the passing of John.John spent his last days doing things his way and on his terms. A brave and inspirational man who I'm thoroughly proud to have met and spent a short time in his company. Big love to Sheila. Team A2OC are here for you always.
Thanks T, I was expecting a weekend of car talk though the trip was more about people than cars. This was in no way disappointing, when is the next one?I have checked mine and I have a yellow. Will probably be the weekend before I have time to upload, but I'll post it
Absolutely Stunning well done you. Hope to meet you soon as we are moving up your way next week and we have a couple little jobs that will be up your street we hope, no rush.The official A2OC Scotland Social ended on Monday afternoon in Applecross. Whilst most did the return trip over the incredible Bealach na Ba pass, Jessica and I headed 25 miles further north. Here lies Liathach, king of the Torridon Giants. Rising up from sea level, it stands alone, untouched. Towering with an effortless majesty, Liathach doesn't care about the puny aims of man.
In the far north west of Scotland, two summits, both ~3400ft high, are linked by a long, castellated, knife-edge ridge. The objective, in case you hadn't guessed, is to climb one summit, cross the ridge to the other summit and then descend. The Liathach Traverse is one of Britain's great mountaineering challenges and returns rare views of surely its most awesome natural structure. Up for it, Jessica? Of course you are!

Looked at Mini and Fiat 500 back in 2008 to replace our Lupo. The money was on the Fiat. Then the Mrs confirmed she was pregnant and we bought an A2... The rest is historyThanks for that, it's just we have a fiat 500c as well as A2's. Look forward to seeing the drone images
