Thanks for the advice, am aware that when we spend longer periods in the van we will be living in it rather than being on holiday, hope it feels more like the latter though. so not sure how we will pass our time, knitting wool is light but takes up a lot of space. will be ok for J if we are near a golf course, we do take his clubs with us so perhaps i should take the knitting this time.
Only been a tugger a couple of times with a friend many years ago. Didn't appeal before I went and the experience only reinforced my long held belief (since I was about 5) that a dormobile as it was then was the only thing for me. Have had a few in the past, 2 bedford elevating roofs 1 bedford home build, looked like someone had put a garden shed on the back of a van
and last was a romahome. Never ventured abroad and all were everyday vehicles. We wont be able to store at home so that isn't so much of an issue now.
Not able to go abroad this time, pity, would have been beneficial to see how I get on driving a large vehicle on the 'wrong' side of the road. I will be doing most of the driving, I enjoy it and John is happy to be a passenger, although i do allow him a turn now and again.
I don't use my cycle much at all, don't feel safe on the roads round here and the cycle tracks seem to end just where you really need them :roll:
John sometimes cycles to work so wont be a problem for him. We both enjoy walking though.
will have a look at sites near public transport and cycle paths then make a short list. So if any of you see a little woman in glasses waving madly, driving a Merc panel van conversion in early September it might be me. Sue
