Sunday morning I carried on down to Southwold to meet the invaluable, incomparable, ineffable and rarely incoherent morris1000, who also drives a Morris Minor Traveller and will be coming with us on the AIR. On the way there Fenchurch's clutch wore down sufficiently that I was having trouble changing gear, so I had to spend a few minutes lying on my back on the drive adjusting it to take up the slack (modern cars do this automatically I believe). In hindsight I realise I should be checking how much free-play there is in the pedal at each service, as I hadn't done anything to it since I changed the gearbox last year.
morris1000 and I talked about various things (including all the work he has yet to do on his car before the rally!), then went to see some friends of his and had a ride in their immaculately restored Morris Eight. We had lunch in the local pub, went for a bit of a drive around in Fenchurch, then I had to set off back on the marathon seven-hour trek home up the A14, A1, and M62. Total distance covered over the weekend was around 600-650 miles.
