    Is there one little luxury you wouldn't leave home in your 'van without?
    Or one piece of equipment you couldn't live without while touring?

    I wouldn't tour without my pressure cooker!

    My luxury object - my hair-straightening tongs! :thumb:

    We'll come and celebrate with you :thumb:

    Back to the subject and yes for me too it would have to be the phone as it always diverted from the business. Cards and games we always have, dont do tele when away, Emily usually watches other peoples from her bed :BigGrin:
