    Guy and is wife pulled up on pitch next to us yesterday, didn't say hallo or owt, could just tell they didn't want to get in conversation, so this morning was quite surprised, their tuggers by the way, when they said morning, bit later on my wife heard her on the phone saying they were felt safe now and security here was good, this afternoon they spilt the beans, they had been robbed on a service station where he had pulled up for a kip, they were in the caravan next thing they knew they had a torch shining at them, this bit made me laugh under my breath, his wife jumped up and had a pop, thought shit mate that should been you, they got robbed of 1500€ They called the police who couldn't come straight away as they were dealing with another robbery on the same service station, apparently a motohomer had been GASSED, the guy in the Motorhome was at the gendarmerie the same time as the tugger giving info and told the tugger that they laid there could see what was happening but couldn't do anything, but they did see the guy who was robbing them had a canister under his arm don't know how much they got off him 2K is the norm is it not, as title says don't shoot the messenger, this is how it was told too me, what you reckon?

    Who carries that much cash in a caravan or motorhome and doesn't have it locked in a safe?

    There is an excellent place to hide cash in an x250 cab, you need to remove a bit of trim to get to it, but unless you've been shown, you'll never find it, no need for a safe, and I always keep my 1000 euro in there

    Back in Sarfend for a while, then back to RSA.
    Well it clearly wasn't a proper gassing as no mention of Rolex or iPad.
