We have just had an email from Fred in Leyland he tells me that Plodd is 99% complete it sounds like they have done a great job, the only things outstanding are the fitting of the Scania Air Horns (loud I mean very loud), the steps to get in and out of the side door and the storage box on the back, this will have to be very big as it is going to house Lesleys shoes and wellingtons (Hunters) ! Anyway the solar panels are now fitted so we will have power when we are in the Gobi desert and the aircon should be working, so that will also be very welcome in the heat. All heating is working so that will be good for the EU countries and beyond. It sounds like when we get back to Blackpool on the 4th Feb there will not be very much to do – THANKFULLY!!!
