    Surely you just flop into it. Getting out is the embarrassing bit.

    I can't just "flop" into a Stratos, cos 1) I'd hit my head on the top of the door opening going in, and 2) my name isn't Fosbury. However I have, recently, begun to develop a strategy that gets me in and out without resulting in too much hilarity....I'll give my knees 6 months

    I've found the best technique for getting out is to use your elbows - left one on the windscreen edge on the A-pillar and right one on the body "hip" just aft of the doorframe - plus accompanying groaning !

    Hi to all those going on the Yorkshire Dales drive in June. My wife Annalisa and I will be joining you for what I'm sure will be a great weekend. Sadly I'm some way off being able to come in a Stratos but hopefully that will be rectified next year!!
    Cheers Steve

    Hi David

    Friday
    Pete - Smoked trout salad, Pork, Eton mess
    Julie - Smoked trout salad, Pork, Eton mess

    Saturday
    Pete - Mushrooms, Chicken, Crumble
    Julie - Soup, Chicken, Ice Cream

    David can I point out Julie has a severe nut allergy ( all nuts ).
    Would you be able to let the hotel know - or we can of course.

    I'm really hoping to get there in my rattly old Allora which is finally on the road again after a small 20 year interlude.
    There's still 14 things on the to-do/buy/fix list, but I'm getting there one at a time and now its not one step forward 2 back thank goodness.

    Cheers

    Pete and Julie
