the bug run

we went on the bug run this morning.  about eighteen cars in all.  weather conditions as you can see from the photos were interesting to say the least.  visibility was down to about twenty metres.  rain and fog (actually low cloud).  we went from burnside to mt lofty summit.  i don't know how long the trip was.  the conditions were amazing.  we couldn't see anything.  on a clear day you can see all of adelaide from the summit.  at night it's a gorgeous view.  i went with my dil and g/daughter whilst other g/daughter and g/son went with my son.  we had our own little convoy.  we met the other members for coffee inside when we arrived which was nice.  dil had a problem on the way back.  no wipers, brake lights and something else (i'm not sure what, maybe indicators).  she thought it was a fuse but seems it's something more.  hopefully she can get it fixed soon.  i had the kids for the weekend.  as usual, the house is a mess and i'm pooped.
