Finally Back Home!

Hi all,

Well I made it home last Thursday from the Middle East and I'm now looking forward to catching up with everybody again.

I can't believe how quick the trip went considering what was happening there. Home now and my ship goes into refit for nearly 12 months so lots of driving to be done. I noticed that my car is two years old in a month and I've just clocked up 22000kms! It needs a good run I think after 5 months of basically not being driven.

It's good to be home!

Great to have you back, Jamie!


As for driving, it might be a bit late notice for you but this might be right up your alley!

welcome back jamie. glad to see you are safe.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Damn!!! I didn't see your post until this afternoon. I wish I knew about it earlier.

Thanks for the replies, it's much appreciated. It's good to be back and looking at decent Fords again. You get sick of seeing V6 SS VY Commodores on Dubai streets though there were a few nice Mustangs getting around. There weren't many V8s except for Kuwait. What is Ford Australia doing? What a market there is in the Middle East.
