Whilst Roger is busy letting the train take the strain, Chris one of our other newer recruits is driving round Europe this weekend, taking part in the Screwball Rally.

The rules are something like this.
1. Buy a car for less than £750
2. Drive it any route you like through Europe, meeting up with other Screwballers at a predetermined campsite each night
3. Have fun and be safe
4. Raise a few bob for charity.

Chris, who is a student paramedic, has two ambulance crew colleagues with him on the rally and between them they've invested in a gleaming X-reg Nissan Primera at a bargain £150 inside the spending limit.  She really is a beauty.  Never raced or rallied.  Yet. 

The convoy left Dover on Thursday and is expected to take in 1800 miles through France, Italy, Switzerland and Liechenstein (wherever that is ??).

The guys are raising money for Help for Heroes as can be seen by the car decals, and they'd be really chuffed if you wanted to contribute to the cause.  Its so here.

Hope you're having a great time Chris and see you soon.
