Proud dad

So 10 years ago we arranged a Trip with surfs and fronteras to the plain.


A good day was had by all....despite me  blowing a radiator and someone else blowing an engine  big_smile

I had my boy racer son with me that day...his first off-road experience, he learned how to control a vehicle and do things he didn't think a car could do.

Fast forward to last year, he picked up a couple of range rovers and discoveries, bought and sold and ended up with a lifted v8 disco which he used as it was intended (replaced several diffs etc  roll )
When the storms came in last year (we missed them as we were sunning ourselves in Spain  cool  big_smile ) he went out and recovered people, towed them up hills etc. Spent one night on a main route with a severe hill pulling people up to safety in heavy snow.
There was a police armed response BMW M5 stuck....they couldn't get up the hill....he'd asked if they wanted a tow and they declined three times. Eventually he decided he'd had enough and was going home....told the police...they decided to take the tow. It was filmed apparently.... devilish

Today he's had a letter of commendation from the chief constable for his help to the community and allowing emergency vehicles to go about their business by keeping main roads free of hold ups.

Haven't heard of them doing this before, apparently ther were 400 recommended for the commendation but he was actually selected.

Not bad for a boy racer (he still races)  roll
