(Yes, of course it's illegal.)


Set off today, realised the fridge was unlocked, nowhere to stop, so my wife carefully went back and locked it before we got to a bend of roundabout

Not condoning it but I wondered how many have done something similar?

I found it really hard to do that on my own. Tried telling the dogs to close the drawer that slid open ( always a drawer) but neither of them jumped to help. Typical.

We use the loo, get lunch, get drinks, close cupboards and have in the past even showered en route to meet friends when running late

Add to this that we used to swap drivers going along we are surely going to Hell in the eyes of some LOL

I also walk around, get drinks, use the Loo and eat en route when being driven in a coach, a train or when I am being flown in a plane

Dare devils us!

Ever since lighting was by Calor gas.
Do it regularly all the time - to use the loo, fetch a packet of crisps, biscuits, a drink from the fridge, a jumper, map, wash my hands, stretch my legs...........
No problem at all: For 20 years I crewed in 5 day offshore yacht races. :)

Yes, for the same reason, or for one of the drawers!

I just set the SatNav and put it in Auto and nip back. Bit like being on a boat with Autopilot engaged. Biggest problem is the other idiots on the road that get in the way ..

Since 1964 Gosh that makes me feel old.

Wot together? :eek:
It should be pointed out that both of you having a shower with no-one driving could be considered slightly dangerous, in our case we at least leave to dogs to drive & they're excellent navigators. :whistle:

Yes, Ann's main tasks are, switching fridge to battery, shuting a cupboard door properly or drawer. Stopping a rattle, usung the loo, Getting a cold drink out the fridge. Or my personnel favourite, Picking the bin up and putting all the rubbish back in it :rolleyes:

many many years! since I was a kid
I have even sat in traffic eating a bowl of cereal and drinking a fresh hot coffee on my way into an airshow.

I prefer that if the van is moving all passengers sit down, but have of course done most of the above at times

I had a 25' sailing boat based in Plymouth for many years.
A Hunter Ranger 245.

For my wife it was no problem.

Illegal?. Not actually sure?. Not recommended perhaps. People on coach trips move about. And use the Toilet facilities, are served drinks.?. We used the facilities on our R-V. "on the move". And when we had 2 drivers we both made full use of the kitchen, made tea and coffee etc. We only actually stopped to change driver.
