2012 Highland Drive - a foreigner's view

Post by TonyleFrog » 28/04/12 17:21

Day 1 - The Road to Ullapool

The open road beckons
Image

spanky tries to convince Bob of the benefits of turbo power
Image

VC adds some octane booster
Image

If I ignore him, hopefully he'll stop trying to sell me whatever that thing is :yawn:
Image

Left hand down a bit.....
Image

A shame nobody thought to tell her you can't get a signal up here :sad:
Image

Cool Mk1 :cool1:
Image

Irish eyes are smiling :D
Image

This is the result when you get that bend all wrong :facepalm:
Image

Mint Mk2 :th:
Image

Not nearly enough stone chips - must try harder :bleh:
Image

I feel a right tit :laughing (note the bra line!)
Image

Rested and Thankful: off we go again
Image

Some ****** German gatecrashes our party
Image

Moggie at Inverary
Image
Image

A thoroughly deserving cause and the car's pilot - top man :th:
Image
Image

Bob strikes a pose while VC and Wabbitkilla ponder the meaning of life
Image

"Control - Flight BA483: ready for takeoff"
Image

Mk3-free zone :yahoo:
Image

Progress halted
Image

Here's why - the first of many!
Image

More in due course

Your wish is my command mate. :)

Day 2 - To Infinity (well, Durness anyway) and Beyond! Part 1

Guess who had his oats this morning! :th: :yahoo:
Image

VC checks today's internet traffic
Image

Last minute flight check before departure (that German car is still skulking around!) :rolleyes:
Image

Well don't just stand there man - help me straighten up
Image

Lights, camera, action!!
Image

Don't ask: just don't :facepalm:
Image

Turbos at Tongue
Image
Image
Image
Image

Plus a Mk1
Image

Still smiling :D
Image

spanky is a tad disconcerted to find that f1.8 is not a new single seater racing formula
Image

That ****** German tourist again - spoiling everyone's pics! :ranting1:
Image

"By a lonely harbour wall....."
Image

If he points that camera at me just once more, so help me I'll deck him :annoyed:
Image

You've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"
Image

Hmmmmm - I wonder if I can con him into buying the Forth Rail Bridge
Image

Superstar travels incognito
Image

It's a long way to Tipperary.....
Image

Durness bay
Image
Image

One Man and His Dog arrive on set
Image

But where are the ****** sheep?
Image

Steve tries to impress the lady with his belly dance routine :blink:
Image

Former friends appear to have had a tiff.....
Image

I could have sworn I left it here :confused1:
Image

Ooooh - nice legs!
Image

Ann and Ray discuss photographic composition while VC concentrates on rolling a spliff ;)
Image

Fully armed and ready to shoot :yahoo:
Image

Hehehe - the silly sod bought it :laughing
Image

Onwards and upwards
Image

VC tries to work out how and when the saucy pictures got onto his camera

Day 4 - The Final Leg

Our hosts for the weekend - Tony & Bev :th:
Image
Image

Pfft! On this trip I can outrun your turbo anytime, anywhere, mate :bleh:
Image

I really don't know why I associate with that motley crew of reprobates :rolleyes:
Image

Whatever he said - it worked :th:
Image

Another late night, eh? ;)
Image

It's not the jokes: it's how you tell 'em :clapping:
Image

"Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy..."
Image

"Pig Pen, this here's the Rubber Frog and I'm about to put the hammer down"

Flat in fifth :yahoo:

Pit stop

Struie Hill above Dornoch Firth

spanky searches for his missing socks.....
Image

Lead on Macduff (yes, I know it's a misquote!)
Image

The awful truth dawns on spanky :shocked:
He has been taking pics with his wakie talkie and speaking into his camera all weekend.....

Image

She's still happy and he's still chuffed :th:
Image
Image

The Irish crew say goodbye before heading for the ferry and home

Being unable to speak Gaelic makes things a tad hard to understand
