DXPEDITION

June 1994

brekdown

Here in the Welsh mountains,the van decided to drop a wheel bearing.We managed to limp to a lay bye where there was an AA phone. Help arrived within 20 minutes !

Well done the AA !

 

After a very harrowing trip through mountain roads at over 65mph(The van was carrying 1.5 tonnes of equipment),we arrived at a small garage where we aquired and fitted the new bearing before continuing on our way to the ferry port and

EIRE.

Arriving at our departure point of Kilmore Quay in deepest Co.Wexford, we unloaded the van and proceeded to load it all onto the fishing vessel "West Island" (the smaller of the two ).The tide was ebbing and there was a drop of around 3 meters to the deck !
