Day 0 – “packing” is a contraction of “panic attacking”

Following last weekend’s outing in the Bongo, a friend mentioned that the exhaust might need some attention.  I took it to a specialist in York, where they showed me the 6cm gap between one part of the exhaust and the other.  Even I could see that wasn’t good.  Moved the ferry booking to tomorrow to give the garage a chance to get the replacement part and fit it.  Hoping they’ll do it soon, as we need to start loading the van ready for an early-ish start tomorrow heading off to Holyhead.
