And when I picked up MYRO yesterday evening I said to Rosie that I hadn’t been that excited since Christmas 1953 🙂

I had to borrow my elder step-son’s car to bring MYRO home because mine doesn’t have a tow bar and his does. And the logistics suited making the trip down to the Kent coast where Rosie lives yesterday, so that’s what I had to do. My son’s sat-nav worked a treat taking me straight to the road where Rosie lives. It was a chilly dull evening and by the time I reached Rosie’s it was drizzling. Had a quick cuppa, sorted out the registration transfer and hitched the trailer up.

The drive back was 60 odd miles at no more than 45 mph in drizzly light rain the whole way so it wasn’t that enjoyable. I stopped a couple of times to check that everything was OK up the back and I’m glad to say that the journey was totally problem free. By the time I got home it was dark and with a bit of help I parked the trailer with MYRO still on it next to my house where it would be safe.

I knew I would be up pretty early this morning but I had to be anyway as where I’d left MYRO it was a blocking a couple of my neighbours’ garages. The weather this morning was pretty much a continuation of last night’s – breezy, rather cold and with drizzly rain. So much for our glorious mid-Summer. I took a couple of pictures of where MYRO spent its first night before moving the trailer round to the front of my garage. This will only be temporary though, until I can get MYRO off the trailer and into my garage.

Here are the first few pics of MYRO in its new home.

I am so pleased that things are moving along at last and I can’t wait to get cracking with the job of getting MYRO ready to fly. The cabin shot is similar to the one I posted a long time ago, here, and although things look a lot more disorganised and untidy now, everything is more or less all still there. In fact there will be some big improvements because, of course, I have a new panel to replace the existing one that has a big hole in it.

But more of my plans for MYRO later. At the moment I’m just glad that this little eagle has found its way home to the nest at last, after all this time. 😀
