Hit The Road Jack.


I am still here. Sorry for the long sojourn (is that the right word?). No excuses really. Except laziness. Although I have been busy doing other things. I always have one or two projects on the go.

I have bought a van. It is a small van but I am making it into a campervan. I already have a campervan as you may know but it is too big and too much of a fuel guzzler for my intentions. Which are to visit more of this United Kingdom while I am still reasonably fit enough to do so.

This little van, a Vauxhall Astra, is very economical on fuel and I shall be able to afford longer trips out. Just me and Mia the German Shepherd.

Anyway I have been preparing it. I have fully insulated everything. and there is plyboard under the tartan fleece lining. There is room for a bed. What more do I need? A cooker might be a good idea?

Here are some photos of what I have been up to.










I have slept in it a couple of times to try it out. It is quite comfy. Mia the German Shepherd has a bed in the front. I have removed the passenger seat to make more room for her.

It is quite cold at the moment. I might wait till it gets a bit warmer before I start travelling. I shall keep a blog about my adventures which I have decided to call 'One Van and His Dog'. Catchy eh? I hope you will follow me. Keep watching this space.
