    At last after waiting all summer for our new van and then a nearly 4 week wait for the V5 from DVLA we are ready to go ( well nearly :Smile:).

    Booked the ferry for next Sunday (4th Nov) Portsmouth to Bilbao then head straight down south to Zahora :thumb::thumb:

    Not gone totally to plan (thanks Mr DVLA!) as we are languishing in Cornwall and really wanted to sail from Plymouth - the last boat went last Sunday :cry::cry::cry::cry:

    So now we have to go to Portsmouth - deep joy :Wink:
    At least it's Sunday so the drive ( towing caravan :Eeek:) shouldn't be too fraught! We're novices at this towing lark :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Any Funsters booked on that ferry??

    It's going to be a steep learning curve for you. If in doubt stop and think what's going on.

    You're going to have to control that right foot Pitstop but just think how deep you can dig in now with the assistance of a caravan.

    Have FUN.

    And coming to a country near you.

    Do you want a nice tarmac road on your estate ? Nice and cheap. Got too much for the last job.

    I wish:Smile:

    Have the caravan, but now the van is in the Peugeot main dealers having the Clutch and Flywheel replaced under warranty. Can't get the new parts till next Wednesday at the earliest they tell me. They've already had it for two weeks.:Angry:
    V5 still not arrived and in theory, I can't get a number plate for the caravan without it.
    So, though I would love to be heading over, caravan in tow, I'm afraid I'm stuck here for a while yet.:cry:
    Good luck with your journey and keep safe. :thumb:
