    A couple of weeks back I said shall we pop off for a a couple of days some where local why not she said so we put a few things in and off we went well don't know about you but some times I cant stop driving the motor home so I kept driving well put it this way your first stop was Abergavenny Wales
    (we live in Brighton Sussex) so for the next few days we toured around the south of Wales then on the way back home we got as far as Bristol and then I decided to turn right so we ended doing north Cornwall then I thought while we are here might as well do Devon so we toured around Devon and Dorset then we had to past the New forest so we ended touring around there as well well we got home to day about 600 miles later been back 4 hours and I'm bored Just thinking do you think she might say yes to another couple of days away tomorrow?? PS had to buy some clothes on root as we only took enough for 2 days .Saw one funster in Trago mills car park on friday afternoon hooted and waved though windows so who was that man in the window waving???

    You are not alone. I find driving the 'van quite relaxing compared with the car. The reduced pace takes me out of the mad rat race that I would otherwise feel obliged to keep up with.

    Hi Archer.
    There is a shortage of lorry drivers all over europe,get your licence and........ "To infinity and Beyond!!" Bonus ? See all you want to see,(Plus bits that are for adults only...LOL) and best of all. Get paid for it,most long haul cabs have the full kit,cooker,sink,fridge and two bunks,so if your a bit tired.... You could sleep on your own.Showers/toilet ? At Services,Ferries and wharehouses, Most Tesco hubs have showers in the booking in offices here in England.

    Talking of trucks, why do they not do a cassette type toilet for the and set them up like a small MH with cooker not a camping stove there is plenty of room, It would stop the bottles of piss all over laybys. but the GREY WATER problem would arise but it is better than Yellow Water
