The first long trip I took with Laura, was bringing her home.
23/12 we drove from the northwest to the west coast of Denmark in a blizzard, to take the ferry to England.
The roof was not mounted, so I had to move my head towards the centre of the car every time I passed a lorry, so I didn’t get hit in the face from the spraying slush from their wheels.
On the way from Hertford to the Land Rover factory in Solihull the drivers window wiper engine broke down. Luckily the Series IIa has two separate wiper motors, with manual override, so I could wipe the windshield manually until I found a bridge where I could swap motors so I could get back without sore fingers 🙂
