New fotos added!!

So Im off tmmrw, 1st stop North Devon find a campsite with some space hopefully near TT4 at Braunton, the vans going in am for some -60mm lowering action, then Im going to drive down the coast road, probably stop off at Croyde, Woolacombe then into Cornwall a couple of days there, some fish and chips at Padstow Harbour, Newquay etc, then back through South Devon stopping of somewhere then a couple of nights in Dorset, Lulworth Cove..nice

Hoping everything goes well checked the levels in the van, not alot of creature comforts in my van, matress in the back job, but its just me and the dog!

heres my van, if you see me give us a wave/come and say hello, (well the van might be a fair bit lower by the time you see it!)T:T:T:

Ok so 265 miles and 4.5 hours later i got down here, near braunton, torrential rain, eventually got my tent up, but have decided to sleep in van instead, all im using the hook up for is one light! My computer got no reception for internet, and cant attach my aerial anywhere for tv! Got a couple of quilts down but think it could be a hard old sleep! Drove to puttsborough which was well nice.
