Valentines Day with a Landrover

By NickLitten

Boris, Landrover, LR3

This year I’m in San Francisco for Valentines Day.

Had a lovely time visiting the wine region of Napa, and when Boris refused to start we were prepared. If you choose to spend Valentines day with a Landrover you expect the unexpected. I simply swore and stood around for 30 minutes trying all the tricks to start the bloody thing. No joy as expected!

Wander off for a coffee and croissant, returning an hour later and it still won’t fire up. So, never to be deterred, we just googled ‘car rental’ and walked five minutes to rent a cabriolet for the day. This really is the only way to look around Napa.

Sure enough, later that day – returning to Boris and he fired up as if nothing had ever happened.

Anyway, it’s an hour or so drive back to San Francisco then we went out for a lovely Valentines evening at a great Curry House. It’s a Indian/Mexican Fusion restaurant which satisfies my craving for eye watering Curries and Kate’s craving for Mexican grilled chicken wrapped in flat bread.

The only shame was coming out to find Boris sulking again.

Total refusal to start.


Short cab ride back to the hotel.

It’s a new day and a new Landrover Specialist to try and exorcise the demons.

So, I just dropped Boris off at this Landrover Specialist with the instruction to “find and fix this bloody thing or dump him in the Bay” on the bright side, I get to drive a reliable rental car for the next week or so….
