AJC500 - 1976 was indeed a great summer . . . I'd just finished 6th year and was waiting to join the air force. I remember cycling to west Wales from Cardiff to meet up with family for special holiday before I left home. Them were the days eh?  :152:

Married (young!) in 1974 - in '76 we borrowed my Dad's camper, drove down to Campbeltown and then zigzagged up the west coast, over to Skye, NC500 roads, Kylesku was a ferry, no bridge in those days, and round to John'O'Groats then the Black Isle to visit friends before last stop in Aviemore, a family favourite in those days.  It still is!   :152:

Great trip, and......."if the campervan is rockin', don't come a'knockin'!!"   :007:

It was a hire car as someone had smashed into my Dads Mini. I thought it was cool as  :082:

Just a quick scoot round the local roads and dirty bits . . . . but with the screen removed. I've done about 2k miles with the screen in the lower position and just a tankful with it in the higher position, so I thought I'd try it with nowt up front.





Was buffet free with just the feeling of speedy air whooshing past me - all very nice if just a little testing on the neck muscles after a few hours  :155:
