10 days out of an envelope…

I often jokingly refer to the Jaguar’s boot as a “FedEx envelope”, but it is actually at least twice the size of one, see:

It is however barely adequate for carrying more than a weekend’s worth of luggage. Of course I have the luggage rack, and I’ll be putting it to use on this trip. I’ve got all my stuff packed now, and I’m just waiting for Christopher and his gear. Once we have it all in I’ll share another photo.

Hopefully this weather will clear (thunderstorms last night and this morning, intermittent rain now) and we’ll be off in the morning.

Of course it has been sunny since mid-May, with only two rainy days that I can recall and the weather turns sour the day we’re supposed to leave on vacation!


  1. hope you avoid the rain…. so is that the fuel take ahead of the boot then? why no nice clean coat of paint?

  2. Me too on the fuel take. Please confirm that we see unscraped leftover adhesive from old padding, not rust. Or maybe its BD residue?

    On the rain, godspeed.

  3. No. The gas tank is under the boot. What you see is indeed grotty old adhesive.
