Could you be slightly more specific as to your destination driver?

Pimped Yoko brings us new friends

August 31st, 2007

I have a feeling Yoko is going to introduce us to lots of new people. When you have a VW, you find that everyone wants to talk to you about them and offer you advice on maintenance and restoration, as well as asking you how much you paid for your camper. We’ve had lots of […]

Yoko and Swarfega

August 30th, 2007

Yoko is our new VW Type 25 campervan. We finally collected her from the mechanic on the 13th August and brought her to my parents house in Leicestershire for a good clean.  It has taken a while to scrub her up, mainly due to the UBELIEVABLE amount of dog hair covering the interior (I am […]

Should we stick to online surfing??

August 29th, 2007

One of the things I’ve been looking forward to on this trip is doing lots of the watersports I love, namely sailing, diving, white water rafting and surfing. Recently I had my first chance to take to the sea for a spot of surfing. As the last time I got on a board was in Jersey […]

Oldest Crabber on the Quay

August 28th, 2007

When we were little, my sister and I would spend many hours happily crab fishing from the pontoons and quay at Dartmouth. Neither of us liked fastening the bait to the line (well, it was cut up fish heads) so my dad would do that bit for us, but after that we would sit and […]

Almost famous car for sale!

August 26th, 2007

Due to other modes of transport (we’ll explain later), I’m reluctantly selling “GOJ”, my faithful Rover 214i. It is an ‘S’ reg 3 door with a 1.4 engine and has LOW MILEAGE (51 000) miles. Features power steering, remote central locking,  immobiliser and CD/MP3 player. It has a full 12 months MOT and 4 months […]

Photo of the Week – 24th August 2007

August 24th, 2007

A couple of pics from daveb’s first (and my refresher) surf lesson in Woolacombe, North Devon. We both loved it but were aching the next day.

Introducing daveb to Dartmouth

August 24th, 2007

After Dartmoor, we drove about 1 1/2 hours South East ish to Dartmouth, where I spent many holidays as a child on our family boat. Here we are lucky enough to be a renting a friend’s holiday flat, so we have a break from camping for a few days. The flat is actually on the […]

Dartmoor: Martian Walk

August 22nd, 2007

Martian, my Cornish buddy from previous travels, arranged a weekend of camping and walking across Dartmoor for the DFL (Down From London) set. Happily, we arrived at the pub campsite fairly early in the evening and pitched our tent before darkness fell. If the truth be told, we weren’t much looking forward to camping again; […]

Fixed broken comments form?

August 22nd, 2007

Thanks to all who have let me know about the annoying broken comments form, which would give the impression of cutting-off long lines of text when using Internet Explorer on Windows. After wrestling with technology for a few hours, I hope that it’s now fixed. Please would you do me a favour and help me test […]
