Minor update

Lintilla is back on the road! After working until late at night on her pretty much every day for the past month or so, I finally finished off the brakes this morning and took her for a test drive up over Crown Point to see the Singing Ringing Tree. In an impressive feat of recklessness optimism, I'm setting off on the second Land's End to Orkney Rally in her this afternoon. She's lacking a few luxuries like a heater and a working radio, but she goes and stops OK and probably won't collapse in a heap of rust.

Now I just need to wash and pack...

Testing

Just checking I can still post to LJ by SMS. I hope to post regular updates on my LEO progress from the road. Don't know if

ETA: OK, so SMS to LJ still can't cope with messages that span more than one 160-character block. What I was trying to say was I don't know when I'll next have Internet access, so don't think I'm ignoring you if you comment on a post and I don't reply.
