    I would just like to thank Neville aka Nomadic for some really wonderful service.

    I recently agreed to buy the above and also agreed a postage cost.

    However, it transpires that the courier refused to take the (extremely well wrapped) parcel because it wasn't boxed.

    Notwithstanding, Neville and his charming wife in, I think true funster style, jumped in their car and drove 50 miles to drop it off at my home.

    A very big thank you !

    Mark

    A lengthy rafter that stretches between the awning arms, parallel to the van, to give more rigidity, I think.

    It's a rafter that you throw in the air and it stays up there as if by magic.

    You can then hang things off it.

    Or it could be one of these.

    Invented, I have heard, by Paul Danials, no less. (y) A keen motorhomer, his wig kept blowing away with his awning.

    Good bit of kit, it stops the arms flexing in the breeze, and therefore the creaking and banging all night.(y)

    Your arms flex in the breeze?? That's caused by pretending to be a tree, or not buying a round when it's your turn, a Sandhurst training habit. And as for the creaking and banging, try linseed oil on your wooden leg. (y)

    Er, you may observe that I always give you a 'like' for your funny stuff, but you never reciprocate. This is very important, because I need to catch Chris, and shrug off a following JJ. Now, if I can spend time writing a funny quip to your officer inspired posts, well, a simple 'like' shouldn't be to much to ask?? (y)(y)(y)(y)(y)(y)(y)(y)
    Should it??
