The Great Southwestern Reliability Trial

In the summer (!) of 2008, the Webmaster and Mrs Webmaster undertook a 17 day tour in their Standard Flying 12 DHC covering  Hampshire, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, returning via Mid Wales to Coventry and thereafter to the Webmaster Eyrie in Hertfordshire. Since we safely returned home after over 1350 miles we have now called it a Reliability Trial which we are pleased to say was a success for both car and occupants. The story of our travels is recorded here in reverse order:
