We spent 10 days in England and Scotland trying out Xena prior to her being shipped to Beijing.
We picked her up from the Rover Centre, having had a great reunion with Owen and Jamie and meeting their Mum and Dad – what a great family.
We drove up through the Yorkshire Moors, over to Berwick, then up into the Scottish Highlands via the lochs. Even got in a whitasting. Then down to our mates Liz Stanley and Sue Wise for new year and Jo tried out her new handbrake turns (in the process ruining 4 new tyres).
Then back to St Albans – a few bits and pieces to do on Xena, but we feel very confident that she will be strong enough to get through the wilds of Mongolia.
