After I finished work last Friday I got in Fenchurch and drove south on the motorway for over six hours to get to wibble_puppy's house. The trip was well worth it; I wish I could do it all again! ;)

Our main objective for the weekend was to make some progress on Wibble's Morris Minor van, which is nearing the end of a three-year restoration. I think we did pretty well on that front. The brakes proved rather tricky to get working but we got there in the end. Here is a video of the triumphal moment as wibble_puppy drove the van out of the garage for the first time:

The thing that really made the weekend worthwhile for me was simply spending time with Wibble again. It felt slightly odd not driving for hours every day and staying in a different place every night! We watched DVDs, ate pizza, went for walks in the countryside, and chatted about future rally plans. Good times. :)
