Sunday the 26th of September, we were still struggling to get stock during the “pingdemic”, lots of capping and stock shortages, so first thing in the morning I was off to the local Booker Cash & Carry, and got there when they opened… Ahh, might of been a bit optimistic there?! I usually gauge it… Continue reading NOOOoooo… Not again!
After the last trip ended prematurely, on the first ‘lane would you believe? It was (again!) time to make some repairs… primarily the bottom radiator hose, but also the offside rear drum brake piston was leaking… New piston and shoes (the old ones were covered in brake fluid). Quite a job to get them reassembled,… Continue reading Repairs 22/09/21
Wednesday the 08/09/21, I had some work to do first, but then I decided it was such a nice day, and the weather was supposed to change for the weekend, that I’d… … throw the soft-top roof back, and take the Jimny Buggy out to do some local lanes, before the winter sets in, and… Continue reading NOOOoooo…
On the last trip, the first with my mate and co-driver Alan back in his seat after the COVID lockdowns, I suffered brake failure – And had to clamp the brake to get us home – Mole grips and calliper ty-wrapped to the chassis! With Monday being a bank holiday here in the UK, first… Continue reading Repairs after the last trip!
I’d been planning the next couple of trips in the buggy to go SW of Denbigh in the buggy and cover… … this kind of area on my Project 116 map. I’d planned a “Wednesday Wander” and a full Sunday route, but talking to Alan yesterday – Saturday the day before this trip – he… Continue reading Alan’s First Trip in the buggy 29/08/21
I originally planned this route – For Sunday the 1st of August, but watching the weather it looked to be drizzling most of the day, so I figured I’d move it to Sunday the 8th, but this weekend was looking wet too… 😦 So I figured I’d switch my days around and have a “Wednesday… Continue reading Wednesday Wander Project 116 04/08/21
You’ve hopefully read on the top menu, “Project 116” has been a long term goal of mine to drive all the greenlanes / Rights of Way on my local OS Landranger sheet 116, so this week I drew another route – .. to take in some of the ‘lanes I’d missed / not driven (in… Continue reading Project 116 18/07/21
This was the event I was aiming to make, I wanted the Jimny Buggy ready for this… Last year was the 50th Anniversary of the “Jimny” when you count the LJ, SJ, Gen 3 and Gen 4 versions that had been sold – around the world – and known as the “Jimny”, due to COVID… Continue reading BigJimny Meet 2021
Sunday the 27th of June, a few of us from the “Jimny Jauntz” group had arranged to meet up in the Peak District for a day’s greenlaning, this was hopefully going to be my return to the group after the head had been done on the buggy and some local testing had proved successful. Brett… Continue reading The Peak District
With the head fixed on the buggy, I felt it was time for a Wednesday Wander to check everything was in order… So I drew a route – You might wonder what the border line is for?… This is the top corner of the OS Landranger Map Sheet 116 that covers my local area. There’s… Continue reading First Wednesday Wander!
