The record shows that "Chalice" has moved once so far this year, but not since the very first two days of the year. It really is quite exceptional for her to have lain inactive for so long, but the recent decision to do our extended trip with "Sickle" has meant that other than some basic checking from time to time, "Chalice" has just stayed tied up.

Anyway it is so long since "Chalice's" engine was last fired up that I wasn't even sure it was going to without a bit of a fight. I need not have worried - the battery still seemed in good order, and the engine started into life with very little effort.

Thoughts are starting to turn to where any big summer holiday may take us!
