Congratulations  @Watteau. Really happy to have been part of your growth, but honestly you seem to have a great idea of driving in the sands. It's a joy having you and your partner on my early morning drives.

Thanks everyone. I'm loving being part of the club and it allows my wife and I to spend some quality time together whilst enjoying the Sands of this wonderful Country. Here's to the next level thanks to the management and especially @Rahimdad and @Wrangeld for their excellent tutelage.
