My winter preparations are almost complete, I say almost as I’m bound to have forgotten something, but then I’m only going to Benelux and Germany and there are shops there – but afterwards, who knows? As my regular reader will have noticed previously, all plans are subject to change.
Cold weather wear was dumped out of the suitcase onto the bed and considered for possible future wear. A few items did not make the cut and were taken to the charity shop for another chance. Most warm weather gear exchanged places with the cold weather gear, and was put into the suitcase and “garaged”.
Remembering the dense chill of winter, even without snow, above 1,000 mtrs suffered in February I did decide to make one new purchase and hot footed to Rohan (favourite outdoor wear supplier) for a new winter coat (at 15% off as I donated a surplus to requirements jacket to their charity box).
After much net searching and not finding I rang the local JustTyres on the recommendation of a friend and found the manager very helpful. My choices were indeed limited due to wheel size but I elected to go for quality rather than cheapness and R0X1 is now sporting all singing, all dancing commercial winter tyres. As long as the dancing is minimal and the singing tuneful I’m happy.
And just in case I do manage to find some white stuff I’ve splashed out on a snow shovel and snow chains.
