Discovery 3 Fuel Burning Heater Controller.

Well i find myself in Lockdown v3 local walks only but its time to starting getting some MOD’s and general Maintaince down on Doris.

The cold weather is here and ive found the perfect MOD using the Land Rover button on the key FOB to pre heat the engine coolant and thus allowing the car to start more efficiently from cold and interior heating being warm from the off.

Trip plans and Accessories

Its been a strange year so far ,I know many of our plans have been changed due to lock downs etc, a trip to Scotland and Italy having to be cancelled for myself, but if it means staying safe I’m willing to wait to protect others and myself.

A rough plan for a trip to Europe has been drawn up for 2021, but we will have to wait and see fingers crossed.

Due to lockdown 1.0 my MOT was differed to December so Doris is booked in and the upper rear suspension arms will be replaced at the same time they were a advisory last year.

Still contemplating on a purchasing a TerrafirMa Snorkel I really think it will enhance Doris’s look and be a useful upgrade.

Be back soon with more info on upgrade’s and hopeful some camping trips, Stay Safe everyone and lets hope we can go explore again soon.

The Earl Waldegraves Radstock Collieries

Ludlows Colliery

The journey on the Bristol and North Somerset Railway brings us to a the Earl Waldegrave’s group of collieries. Thanks to everyone that allowed me to see some areas that the public don’t always see. This is a brief look at what is left of these coal mines more information can be found in books “Through Countryside and Coalfield” and “Collieries of the Somerset and Bristol”. Please subscribe and like its FREE , and our journey will continue further west on the Bristol and North Somerset Railway as we explore more coal fields in Somerset.

Covid-19

Well after completing the last YouTube video on the Somerset coalfields all my future plans were put on hold due to having to self Isolate for 14 days after coming into to contact with someone who had tested positive, all is well I tested negative.

I can resume exploring and camping but it opened my eyes to this virus and how it could continually disrupt what we love to do

Stay safe everyone
