We have just heard that the car will be shipped from Vancouver to Beijing on April 16th so we are now making sure that Ruby is as reliable as possible to take us on this great adventure. On a recent run in torrential rain we realised that the tool boxes on the running boards and the trunk/ boot both let in water. So we are now busy waterproofing everything especially the camping gear! Camping is bad enough but a wet sleeping bag ugh! We plan to take her on a final run next month to Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island fully loaded again and the final try with jackets, rain gear etc.
