Tuesday afternoon I set off for Dumfries to catch up with Peter Williamson Jnr. He has been conducting trials for the last six months, on behalf of FMM, on the Iggesund Blue Harvester Guide Bars. The trip involved an overnight stay as I met with Iain Lawrence from Iggesund, Peter and Mark McNight of Timber Tech Ltd, the contractor Peter operates a harvester for, for a meal.
It was an excellent evening with great banter, although we probably overstayed our welcome as the barman was dressed in his pyjamas and slippers when we left.
The following morning we visited Peter on his wet and windy site just outside Dumfries to see how the bars had performed. See the complete trails in the next issue of the magazine.
The driving conditions on the way home were horrific with driving rain and a lot of surface water on the motorway. Sometimes it beggars belief at the high speeds people drive at in those conditions; no journey is worth “dying to get there.”
