Before we married, Glynis and I decided to retrace the cycle ride my father, brother and I did when I was 14. All we had then was a shot-out old Austin A40 called Gretelfred which I had bought for R125 (about 10) on condition I allowed her to look at the sea once a week (she had been owned by a surfer who was concerned that she would pine). I rigged up plastic sheeting along one side for a "tent" and Gretlefred completed the 2400 miles without missing a beat!
