That’s our wedding anniversary and when I’d promised a continental trip in the Elan...

This might take some diplomacy ...

With Julien and Phillipe making the trip over, why go to France when the French will come to you (or you could try to wangle an invite back with one of them, and drive over to the continent for the following week with excellent company).

A friend of mine opened a real ale micropub there a few months ago. It would be rude not to say hello :D

After missing the Lotus 70th by a few days I must check my work schedule closer to the time and see if I can jump seat over for it.
Unfortunately, my Elan wouldn't be making the trip.

At just over 3200 miles, I would be a good contender for the furthest distance travelled prize.

I think if you went to all that trouble the prize just wouldn't be worthy of the effort :wink:
