PORTMAN & BEYOND
For the last Drive of the year it could not have been better, a magnificent turn-out of 21 cars and 44 members took part, the weather was also very kind to us. Johnny put on one of his country / mountain drives across the Sierra de Altaona that certainly did not disappoint, even though we had to share the mountain roads with a few hundred bikes who seemed to have no regard for their lives or my paintwork !!
Steve with the Alvis had a small problem with overheating due to having to go slow to avoid bikes and the climb at one point, our thanks to Ernie and Valerie for stopping to help and they re joined us at the coffee stop.
Following coffee we continued via Balsicas, Torre Pacheco and Los Alcazares to La Union where we turned onto the familiar Iron Ore road to Portman and onward to our lunch stop in Los Belones and the very busy but very efficient Campo Verde restaurant.
