Good grief, that's a coincidence! Yes, it was. You should have come over and said hello!
Our neighbour at the holiday cottages got given a Freelander in place of their planned Astra by the hire company. He's never had a car like it before, so he's up for doing the Hardknott & Wrynose passes, followed by Bottle Fell tomorrow morning! (How's that for leading the innocent astray?!).
I've just got to double check that there's no reason that we shouldn't do it tomorrow (are you aware of any?). What green lane/s did you have in mind?
