I do come up with alot of rubbish sometimes :D
Yesterday I had a job in Crawley yesterday . I'm creeping the speed up gently now to my normal crusing speed between 60 and 65mph.
I've a decent long trip to the Isle of Grain tomorrow so hopefuly after that I'll have done enough miles to get up to full speed.

Today a job in Basingstoke at an animal feed factory. We had to lag the exhaust on a back up generator and do all the usual risk assesments before starting especially as we were supposed to use a high step ladder. We got the ladder close by and then did what we usualy do and climb all over the engine to reach the exhaust. Big engines dont fall over, ladders do though :D

Then then a boat job in Hamble. Another exhaust up a chimney stack, not much room, looks like I'll need a small grandchild to get in there.
Reminds me of a tight spot years ago when I'd forgot to run a cable through a loft. Not even big enough of a 2 year old to get through. So I tied some easily breakable cotton to my small dog, shoved her in one end and called her out at the other end. Prefect, she enjoyed it so much she wanted to do it again. :D

Early morning ride to the Isle of Grain. Working on natural gas storage site. Ships come in here with the gas which is stored in concrete storage tanks. Its a huge site that can provide 20% of our natural gas. Some of the control valves need lagging to prevent the cold freezing them. The "Beast from the East" caused them alot of probems. I wonder why they've waited for winter before starting the work. Hmmm:?
I got there a bit to early so went for a short ride around the area. Theres a holiday complex in Allhallows. Appropriate as Haloween is just around the corner

Didnt fancy a very early ride up to Sleaford near Grantam this morning so left yesterday afternoon, managed to get up there before it got dark. The site was next to a railway line and tried for a photo but the train went too quick :D
Also this morning for me at least it was the first frost of the winter
