Frozen apple

Tom – Having originally been shipped to Algeria, this car never had a heater. Consequently the frozen apple that was on my dashboard when I left Cambridge only defrosted when I got south of Bordeaux!

Fitting a heater for the high altitude sections has been on my mind for a while though the original Smiths Heaters are famously bad. You can buy an original looking Clayton Heater but they don’t put out much heat, are quite expensive and don’t fit very well in a left hand drive. I have therefore gone for a much cheeper Kit car heater that uses the cooling water in the same way as the smiths heater but gives out a lot more heat. It even has a pleasing Steam Punk look to it.

  1. Elza and I have so enjoyed following you all and will quite miss it all when you get home.
    I think the country that has interested me most is probably Romania. I am envious of your staying with ‘Prince Charles because if have been interested in his Coronation Meadow project in Britain. The idea came to him because of what he saw in Romania and he realized just how much we have lost in the wild flower meadows and started trying to repair things. He’s a good mush.
    Good job Tom’s a bit a techie guy – to say the least – his parents arrive here today and Zazu!

    Much love to you all

    • Hi Richard and Elsa, we are one hour away from home. Zazou is taking up the entire back-seat in dog bliss between the children. Very sad our adventure is at and end but we have had an amazing time and already dreaming of the next!
