With last week’s local wander going well, I thought this week I’d wander a little further afield… The buggy all prepped and ready to go… … over to Conwy to drive a byway I hadn’t driven for a while, but had as a passenger recently, so I was keen to go back and drive it… Continue reading Wandering a little further
Having had a good four hour trip on tarmac a couple of weeks ago (see previous blog), I thought it was time to take the buggy offroad again, so a local greenlaning trip was in order 😉 Starting – after a cooked breakfast at the Whistlestop Cafe of course – at Radar Hill east of… Continue reading Local Wander
It’s back! And so am I!
I thought it was about time I dusted off the buggy and took it out for another test drive… You may remember that after I built it the head needed doing twice, and since then it’s been sat in the garage whilst I’ve been sat in hospital beds, getting divorced, and setting up a new… Continue reading It’s back! And so am I!
Yup, can’t help myself! The Boogie is great for greenlaning, it couldnt be too extreme as it had to still resemble a Jimny and have wheel arches that covered the tyres, lights, etc, to be road legal and pass the annual MOT road worthiness inspection… But, I also longed for a tube framed buggy, offroad… Continue reading Another Buggy?!
Just in case anyone spotted “The Boogie” for sale on eBay… it’s now had a reprieve and has been withdrawn from sale… I’m now looking forward to getting out and about when the summer eventually comes, and my foot is fixed… The cage round my foot has a “prescription” of rod adjustments until the 21/4/22,… Continue reading A Reprieve…
Me, and as a result, the buggy are laid up… In mid-December 2021, coming down the stairs in our house, I felt a ”twang” like an elastic band snapping, so I assumed it was a ligament or a tendon… Nope, I’m writing this sat on my hospital bed in late March 2022, having had this… Continue reading Laid Up…
The 8th of November… The Boogie Buggy finally came back from the local garage after having head the head re-done… Nestled back in the garage and waiting for some nice weather for a run out… 😉
NOOOoooo… Not again!
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…
