Thursday afternoon, fly from Aberdeen International Airport (I think it's called international because their are flights to England Very Happy )
Arrive at the party metropolis of Luton.
Check in at the 7 star luxury resort of Thistle Express.
Order the Dancing girls and Las Vegas type show, Christina Aguilara is probably on in the hotel lounge for the season.
Bed by 8:15pm Surprised
Picked up by Porsche Silverstone at 10am the next morning, probably by Mark Webber.
Pick up my new baby thumbsup
Drive to sunny Lancashire to stay with sister and attend beer festival.
Saturday drive back to Aberdeen.
What a great way to get to know my new 997.2

life is hard Floor

There is a 38% chance that you will either die, or suffer from PTSD as a consequence of being in Luton

Death is preferable

Good luck and enjoy your trip home

I wish no gritters for your journey North


I remember my adventure - Early flight from Leeds/Bradford to Heathrow where Brooklands OPC picked us up, bought car (997.2) and then drove home to West Yorkshire - a great introduction to the car.
