I've just finished my contract on a Chinese LNG ship & am currently in Shanghai waiting for my flight home to Inverness. Due to some earlier fog delays (ship not plane) my flight is not due into Inverness until April 3rd pending some tight connection at Manchester.
I should be home for around 3 months more or less & live pretty central (IV2 4AG). I have 3 school age kids so will probably not be venturing too far afield this time home.
If your mate gets stuck then I have space off road in my front garden (my car lives in a carport when I'm away & the wife doesn't drive).
It would be free/gratis but obviously I cannot guarantee the security etc (my car has been OK these past few years so I would say it would probably be acceptably safe).
Anyway if you are interested then get in touch via PM, bearing in mind I may not be in a position to telephone until I get home.
All the best, Simon
P.S your friend doesn't drive a stretch Hummer by chance??!!
