The plan this time is to isolate the water tank and leave all the taps open so any water left in the pipes has some room for expansion. All the pipework on NB Valerie is the Hep2 plastic type which i am led to believe will stand the freeze better than copper. Any other suggestions will be well received. The central heating system has anti-freeze solution running through it`s veins so all is well there.
Was planning on leaving Thursday but the temptation is to go sooner, Thanks Joanne/Kev.
Pictured above part of the flight from Vegas to Seattle. 250+ passengers over 3 classes, just how does 200 tons fly threw the air at 500+mph. It`s a long way down but from 35,000ft you`ll only crash once but if you have those thoughts why board in the first place so best just watch the movie.
Map of the area around Seattle. It could be America`s answer to the BW map of the UK waterways.
The first Starbucks was this one here in Seattle opposite the Pike Place market opened in 1971. Starbucks invasion on the world began with their first out of America site in Tokyo now they are in around 40 countries world wide.
Now i wonder what health & safety here in the UK would say about this. The driver operates the holder from the cab and delivers or collects your bike at the Pavement/Sidewalk depending which side of the pond you talk from.
One of the top attractions is the Seattle Needle standing at 605` tall. Built for the World fair in 1962 the restaurant 500` up revolves, at least the outer part does, and so finely is it balanced all that is needed is a 1.5 hp motor. Fun facts about the Needle HERE.
Views from the viewing gallery 520` feet up.
The Experience Music Project combined with the Science Fiction Museum is housed in this stainless Steele clad building. Inside the entrance hall is dominated by a guitar monument stretching up 3 floors. None of the pictures i took can beat this interactive one here. Inside the building are 12 studios where you can try out many types of musical instrument, all the studios are soundproofed and if you watch the video below of me in action you can hear why.
So i`ll just leave you with this video of me having fun in one of the mini studios in the EMP.
scroll down, the vid just wont stay where i put it.

Had a good bash on the drums then Les.
Back to UK and ice n snow. A few tips on offer :-
Put some Vaseline on the zips of your canopy, that will free them up when frosty. Tip from Geoff on Seyella.
Use your water pump to put air in the pipes. Switch off electric to pump. Open sink taps to release pressure. Turn off the tank tap and remove the water feed to pump. Switch on pump for short bursts with taps open.
Happy Christmas from Chas n Ann
