    Ok, here's a new one for ya.

    What I learnt this weekend in the Motorhome/outdoor....useless of not, what have you learnt?

    Ill start you off.
    amazed me but whilst running the 31 mile Ultra marathon of Whitby Robin hoods bay and Ravenscar,, the place is beautiful and there is a total of 199 steps of to the top of the Abbey.

    There is actually a place called Land of Nod.

    Scarborough is in fact quite big.

    Friasethorpe beach is only 40 miles from Bill the Drills house. 20140831_124948.jpg 20140831_124948.jpg 20140830_131321.jpg 20140830_133227.jpg 20140830_133227.jpg

    Looking for a panel van conversion for my sister today as she sold her liaka yesterday.

    And after being round 3 second hand dealers I've learned there's some seriously overpriced crap out there and it makes me love my van more and more

    I found out you don't need a leisure battery to run your habitation the New Varta Silver. Or similar works just as good if not better, with our new Elevtroblok and Varta Silver the Solar Panel is working more efficiently than ever.

    I learnt that I do not always understand what is said in some posts ! :ROFLMAO:

    I also learnt that the Post Office credit card makes NO charges for foreign purchases and gives a really excellent exchange rate too !
