I dunno about the crane driver. But I do think I spotted someone famous- does he live in a house with these people?


Maybe you can put this song as the music to the clip :P

The first line does kind of describe some of the forum members though :D

Hi,

Middle Spice did a lot of steering and gear changing in DS on the runs we went on and then had her first real drive down at the old Forbes Ski club road on the way home. Did very well, handles the clutch better than her Mum and only had me concerned once. :)

Terry
I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

and she really appreciated it big time, the grin went from ear to ear!  yet another thank you terry - you must be so sick of hearing that from me ;D
Not me with the clutch problem - thats posh spices area of expertise (not) ;)

and Koby was a great driver, as well as one hell of a good housemate - spicettes have already facebooked him I see and hope to keep in contact so happy to see new freindships develop from a great event!!

Happy to report that after 12 months of the log book on learners, 165 hours logged, 2 months wait to have the book approved and an appointment for a driving test become available and the Crane Driver has his P's.

This means he can now drive without supervision.  Not sure if this is a good thing yet or not.  He is out at the moment, testing his "wings"

Scarey stuff  ;) ;D

Ah, he'll be all right. We've all survived this long and most of us were a lot less prepared on our P's.

I'd driven around the bush a bit, but certainly never spent 12 months on my L's with someone as keen as TLP to take me out all the time  :) (helped a lot that I was invincible at that age though  ;) ).
