The time to set off is now very close, last weekend we went on a trial trip to Lancaster and everything worked on Plodd, there was a small drip dripping on me in the night but when I looked the next day there was 3 rivets missing out of the roof so that was easy to fix,the only thing left to do are the stickers of all the countries that we are going through to be put on the sides of Plodd, however, I got up this morning and it is raining so we will either have to find somewhere inside to put them on or wait until it stops raining.
So we set off on Sunday morning around 10am heading for Bridgnorth in Shropshire before we head for Folkestone and the Euro tunnel we are booked to cross on Wednesday morning at 10.30am then into Belgium and stopping in Belgium 2 or 3 nights.
We now have one set of Passports that arrived back from the UK passport office but we are still waiting for the other passports back from the Russian Embassy, they have told us we will get them back tomorrow (cutting it a bit fine).
We still have a concern about the political situation in the Ukraine as we are going to be traveling right through it early April into Russia. but we will have to see what happens.
Anyway we hope you all enjoy following us on www.plodd.net and we will try to keep you posted as often as we can (internet allowing).
