Blazing a trail

One of the things that I’d tried and struggled to find was the exact weight of the “Kew”.

This was important to get an idea of what equipment was going to be needed to collect it and get it back to Leicestereshire from Cumbria.

After much deliberation, we calculated that a 5 meter lightweight  trailer + the Kew , would still be too heavy to be towed by a RAV4, but would be safe behind a Volvo XC90, so my good friend Nick was drafted in to use his bus as the tow car.

So a trailer was booked with Barwell Trailer Hire who have always been very good value when I used them before for other car based activities!

And collected the night before, ready for the big day. Not small is it!
