Our Last Stop.....

We have now been at Moreton, our last stop on this year's tour, for a week.
 Before we left Verwood my friend Peter and his wife brought their caravan over to the site for a flying 24hr visit.
 It was nice to see them and luckily we had a dry spell that coincided perfectly with their stay.... 
The image above is of their cherry red Freedom caravan with Eva the Eriba in the background. 

Unfortunately that dry spell has not transferred across here to Moreton as since we have been here it has rained every day up to today.

 I actually managed to get out on the Tifosi for a ride this morning which was the first ride since I swapped the bikes over... 

This past week I've been really busy with lots of medical goings on...
 I have had a DNA/ gene test as well as genetic counselling in respect of my heart condition...
 I have had a treadmill stress test...which was stopped halfway through because my blood pressure shot up to 200/110.

 I have also managed to fit in my annual cancer check so I am now waiting for the result of that which always makes me feel a bit apprehensive..

 Also a ECG was completed following the treadmill stress test..
 I also have another appointment with my cardiac consultant tomorrow  due to my blood pressure'malfunction' during the treadmill test and also following on from the ECG results...

I am very concerned about this appointment as there is always the possibility that I could be told that I shouldn't ride a bike anymore and that today's ride on the Tifosi was my last bike ride .....

I like the cherry red caravan, its good to see something different from the usual white / cream.
You have a lot going on medically, I hope its a favourable outcome, so fingers crossed for you. All the best.

@Dave
Peter's wife chose the colour... You can now buy an Eriba with Red below the waistline also they do one with Blue on the lower panels... Both of these vans are colour themed inside as well...

I'm hopeful that all news turned out good on the medical side?

Dear Trevor-
All the best with the heart tests and your health.
I have had some disturbing heart test results recently and so I am paying extra attention to all things health. Easier said than done.
Best wishes for everything mate!
Chandra

@SteveA
Thanks Steve.... Medical news put more restrictions on my cycling but at least I can still ride my bike...

@GreenComotion
Sorry to hear of your 'heart' news...
It can be difficult balancing health restrictions with doing the things that we would like to do such as cycling etc. You take care Chandra..

Hi Trev - just been thinking about your next year Verwood v's another site issue - A few years ago We stayed in a tent at a cracking ADULTS ONLY SITE called "back of beyond" which is on the North side of the ringwood to Wimbourne road. Sarah the fish and chip lady also goes there too Bonus Would recomend it
