Off to Oregon, after some petrol-heading
Off to Oregon in a few hours for the Pinot Noir celebration. Flight leaves at 0630.
Spent today taking the boys to the London motorshow, held at Excel in the Docklands (pictured). It was a fun day, with lots of very fast and expensive cars to ogle. I do have a sense of guilt, though, when I realize how much fuel these cars burn (and their corresponding emissions). Even if I had a bit more money, would I feel free to indulge my motoring fantasies? One of these is to own an old Land Rover. But the fuel consumption of one of these is enormous. My sons are more into Hummers, Maseratis and Aston Martins.
