    Just done a straight 151 nights in the van. Bliss - Got home an hour ago, turned on water, fridges and freezers etc, everything as we left it except the boiler won't light so it looks like it will be 152 nights in the van. Knackered....night all :)

    Welcome back to good old Blighty ... I'm guessing it's a bit colder here than where you've been!

    Boiler trouble? Check the thermostat is set and use the reset , probably froze whilst you were not there

    Well Jim glad you all had a great time. Given that you have no boiler and it is rather cold, can I assume that your shorts are no longer the attire of the day!!

    A traditional welcome home from Wales. An all night rock n roll tune, played on the roof of the van, our first rain of the year. :)

    Just got back ourselves, well we are at Poole dock, stayed here last night after getting off the ferry. Going to south lychett manor campsite for a couple of nights then back to Devon. It's dull overcast and forcast rain for the next couple of days. :unsure:
