Tips for Elise Travel # 4
Baby Wipes :
Actually, this tip must be attributed to my good friend and fellow Elise Co driver, Cecilia. Ces provided me with this tip before we embarked on the 2008 Roma-Italia Ralley, which Clive and Ces won in their Larry Lotus!! And we came 8th out of 40 something cars. Anyway, again, I digress…..
Baby wipes are very useful and can be stored neatly in the glove tray under the dashboard. The many uses include:
1. Wiping up after a spillage or leakage, ie coffee or leaky strawberry punnet
2. On very wet days, as we had when driving from Lofoten Island to Tromoso, wiping up the door sills due to rain leakage. Elie does leak quite a bit in heavy downpours. And once the door is opened, water will come in.
3. On very hot days, such as our last 2 days from Stockholm to Nueremburg, and Nueremburg to Lugano, wiping your hands after applying copious amounts of sunscreen. Also they can be quite cooling when applied to the face, neck, chest etc on these hot days.
4. Generally keeping the door sills and dashboard clean and shiny…….just like the driver & codriver!!
End of Tips for Elise Travel #4 and final tip.
And we have a properly animated itinerary from everytrail.com again ... since I've created it on the home computer, the earlier difficulty must relate to a revised setting on the travelling netbook. Must try to create a single trip display for the full 9,000 kms!!
The final tally:
For those of you who must have the statistics, here's the total mileage ...
I'll post one more blog later this evening, which will talk about the likely next blogs, and when they might be ... but that's all for this particular post.
