Once more bringing tales of high adventure to the few who dare read the 'Oilyracer' blog. One day the rest of the world will follow.....until then enjoy the exclusivity of finding this little corner where old scrap is turned into Vintafaked Legends....
So, where was I with my tale of distant travel and culinery mayhem.
Aah yes, Unfortunately it is with deep sadness that I have to report that 'I' Albert Crackleport (Boy Scout Woggle Chuckin' Champion 1966) did not gain enough points in the Loch Lomond Porridge Cooking Challenge. Which means dear readers that I canna officially weer tha sporran...
The point where our newly renovated machines would attempt to carry us over the mountains.
We would ride the 'Rest and Be Thankful' pass up the long and harduous climb out of Glen Croe, over the summit and down the descent to Cairndow at the head of Loch Fyne. Along side the pass runs the old hillclimb course where such famous names as Jackie Stewart, Raymond Mays and Basil Davenport raced over 50 years ago. You can still almost smell the Castrol R !
Hands up all those that thought we wouldn't make it !
Belgium Chapter Koen bravely sampled the oysters.......(and he complained earlier he couldn't swallow porridge...aaaakkkk)
Next stop on the tour - Inveraray
'The Vital Spark' was moored in the harbour. Named after the T.V series
Then back over 'The Rest'
Traffic jam nearing journeys end.
Saa ther' ya' have it........Big Marine engines, a Micro Bobber, the ex Elvis Presley CB72, Primus and Porridge, oysters and Skirttish Ale............It can only happen here on Oilyracer...
For now Albert signing off - Awe the best tæ yis
