But wait there's more, while walking the boys this morning I heard a friendly accent and just 5 rigs down is another English couple who now live in Orlando. So what's the odds on 3 Brits on the same row in the same park in New Mexico.
Be safe

That park will never be the same. Thanks for the warning. Oh, so now you admit to be a Brit, how convenient.

I'm Welsh the original Brits. The English are invaders from Scandinavia, came to rape and pillage and never left. Really bad form! Do your business and go home.
We will of course dispense of them when it suits, but for now we let them think they run things.
Be safe

Yeah, and they even still believe it was them what invented the steam locomotive and deny credit to Richard Trevithick, A friend is building a 7 1/2" gauge model of his most successful engine. Like the one pictured here ...

Wasn't it Watt,Savory or Newcomen? I think it depends on whether we look at a steam engine as a vehicle on rails, then probably it's Trevithick who mastered high pressure steam. Actually a Greek bloke named Hero from the 1st century came up with a sort of turbine.
They were of course all of Welsh heritage or wanted to be.
Are you guys back in the frozen north yet?
Be safe
