Didn't realize it was anti-drinking poster at first, the labels would work as beer names
Later at YHA house
Meteorologikos mit Lauri
Joe is slightly inebriated
The king of all chairs!
This is where everyone decided to try on Peter's new flat cap.
And back to the owner
Holy crap. Also known as the place of 2 punctures and one dropped bike.
The art of zen-photography
Stopping because 8er is spitting gearbox oil. Adrian (who is in the 205) assures us it's normal
At the fracas ground zero parking. You have to admit, there's only one car that properly fits here.
They have very nice backyard, and a matching view.
Our brakepipe sprung a leak when we were near Manchester, so we left the car for overnight repairs, and the Daimler team had a day-off in the city, where we had one of the best pizzas I've ever eaten (no pics of that, sorry). Also pickup up a rental for one night. Someone else was getting their as well
Bridge to Anglesey
After spilling the whisky on his shirt, he tried opening the beer. This is the result.
Jaguar dealership in Coventry. We though about trying our luck and getting a bump-stop there while passing by. Rear shocks were pretty much gone at this point, and having lost one bump stop we were literally scraping the road regularly.
Modern XJ. This is shit, where are my tables?
The channel had to be crossed without rentals, and everything had to be packed in Matt's other Land Rover that joined us on the day. How full was it? Yes.
Quick wash in Dover, and important detailing.
A few drive-by shots of the 8er.
Due to miscommunicating my intent, the others just flew past instead of matching our speed, and I had camera on slow shutter, so pretty much all shots were crap
Morning after the feast at Peter's parents' cool and weird place.
Some people went straight home, others got lost, while us and two bikers went on the planned route to Spa. There was some track action, and we saw an open gate and drove in to take pictures, while bikers (presumably) left for Germany. Upon return to the gate it was closed and apparently broken, so we were trapped :lol: Took us a few tries to find our way to the actual, main entrance, so we took the chance to have coffee at the track (obviously).
Antti is permanently plugged into some power source
Next stop - Adenau! On our way to Alibaba.
That's all of my colour pics of the trip. Some others will come later.
Developed and scanned films as well now. I tried shooting more with the film camera this time, managed 4 rolls. Unfortunately the shop delivered iso400 film, even though I ordered iso100, and there wasn't time to sort it out. Thus many shots are much grainier than I'd like. In retrospect, I should've just exposed it at iso200 or 100, and pull-develop. Oh well...
Commencing grayscale dump.
Black Isle Berries Bunkhouse
Lunch from a hole in the wall
Grace, pace, space
The one picture that would definitely benefit from being in colour
Belgians doing some gang signs
Mackay's rooms in Durness.
Philip posing in Joe's rainsuit. He liked it so much he was wearing it even when it wasn't raining.
The hero Rover and it's hero driver
Wasn't sleepy on first night at Oban, so I went to experiment with long exposure night shots.
Grilling evening at Oban camping.
Very serious Peter
Adrian grilling his hammer
A few cool shots of Peter. I really like the second one.
Daimler's backseat. Cozy.
A very high bartender
Celebrating the start of Olympic games, I guess
Almost at a peak of a Hardknott pass at the Lake District.
Good tyres, Lauri mused, casually sipping scotch... but certainly not round tyres.
The "failsworth" side-adventure. Free day in Manchester, thanks to the failed brake pipe.
At YHA Ravenstor
Jaguar engineering centre in Coventry
I have a few more shots from the Ringmeet, I'll post them in the Ringmeet thread soon.
