Are we suckers for punishment? Or just plain crazy? Whatever your view, we are off on another Rally. This time to the French Alps. We've been told that after the 2013 Winter Trial this will be a piece of cake. Ha! We all know people tell fibs don't we!

I've been into the garage and had a chat with Bianca (our 1962 Volvo Amazon for those of you who haven't met her yet) who, I must say, is proudly displaying her first Fisher Rally Sticker and looking rather marvellous with her white paint all a'shine. You might remember I said she had a leak? Well, Ben's sealed her floor, taken her out in a rain storm and still water's finding it's way in. She's reluctant to give up this particular secret so watch this space.

Rain is forecast. OF COURSE IT IS!! THE FISHER ARE GOING ON HOLIDAY SO IT'S BOUND TO BLOODY RAIN!!

Our pals, John and Judith aren't joining us for this one. Instead Fred will be. In his Porsche Carrera RS with either his son or his father; you don't need the details. Fred's a vet. Not sure what help that will be but he's probably thinking the same about us. Mind you, he has done it before......

We leave in the morning. Early train through the tunnel. First night in Nancy (why does that name always make me smile) via Reims.

I'm off to pack. Do you think I'll need my Ugg boots? They were skiing in Courchevel-Alpe d'Huez last week. That's our overnight stop on Friday. Oh joy!
