hiya the holiday went well and the car coped quite well.
i could have done with a bit more horse power though and it performed well as its only a 4 pot engine 2.8 turbo.
my fault again every thing included the kitchin sink.
the hills were a little bit slow and i nersed the car and kept the revs low.
boy you knew when the pair of them were on board the hill to come from the barn is 10% grade for about 1/2 mile well we chuged up there at 25 mph.
we built up speed slowley and was at 60mph on the open road and it seemed that the trailer was not there at all whilst i was in overdrive.
we had a great time at my frends new home and private barn.
i must admit the wind cought us as we had heavy gales on the way and i was on a viduct open with a cross wind it took me once so i took out both lanes just to play safe so i could correct any over steer produced by the wind.
its about 100 foot drop the other side of the crash barrier.
we made it back home ok but the car smelt a bit hot though.
as i had it serviced and the oil leak fixed on the rocker cover gaskit replaced.
so the generator performed well on the first night the gales came and the trailer was rocking a bit lol.
had plenty of rides but did not drive and did fence work there and fixed all the paddocks electric fences as well and also a new mains energiser.
i have been a bit busy with drainage on my barn and with work sorry about the long time to follow up on this string.

Sounds like you have had a good time I assume you had the wife, girlfriend with you can't remember if you said you were married or not.
What was the tow vehicle I tow my float with an Isuzu bighorne 3.1 turbo auto diesel. I had to put a very large transmission oil coller on the front. That sorted a lot of the heating issues autos can be struck with.

It looks like you have done a great job with the float and you are enjoying your horses.
I've not done much riding of late to busy getting myself fit for a spot of deer hunting next month.
