Wheel changing coffee mornings...

I had to add this to the blog..only in the Falklands would you have wheel changing coffee mornings. On our remote roads, you are unlikely to find a passing man to help, and with the state of the roads, punctures are common. It is vital that everyone has the right kit in their car,and is confident in manhandling a Landrover...so we bake some cookies, get out toys for the children, and all listen to the Driver while he tells us what to do. And we then all change tyres (and those xcountry tyres are HEAVY!) I am confident that no patch has so many wives competent in vehicle care.
