So, one or two things on the go right now.

Biggest show I have undertaken to date less than a week away, imminent house move, new projects at work, 2 & a 4 year old (need I say more) and a whole heap of other stuff in the back ground.

The reason for sharing this with you ... last week I discovered I had a small leak in our new camper from the sink - no problem, its under warranty so took it back, besides had two whole weeks before due to take it to Beaulieu.

So, went to pick it up today, (120 mile round trip) all leaks sorted - but wouldn't start :eek: Couldn't find anything myself and the mechanic is on hols for the week .... :eek::eek: so had to leave it there .... Stress ometer creeping up.

There is always a plan B, so on the way home I am thinking I will just have to take the tusty old Black Van ... but hang on, I have just sold the Puck :eek::eek: and also just sold my T5 R&R Bed :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: Didn't think I would have the need to use them again !!!!

So how ironic is this, we will be back to where I was 6 years ago .... empty Van - no creature comforts and back to the Tent LOL:

Your lucky mate. At least you have a working set of wheels to get you there in the dry, there is always somebody worse off to put things into reality. I'm running about on my motorbike in the most unpredictable awful weather i have ever known and its awful. You will need to have a couple more beers. The van looked good when i spotted you on the A11 by the way hope you get it all sorted soon bud T:

Just realised how far round Beaulie is from me. Thought it was closer. :confused:

Would have made a bit of a long trip down for you.

Good luck with it all. T: And happy camping ;)

Re: Jimbo - Officially Stressed !!!!

Update on this ... (Yep still stressed) The mechanic at the camper centre couldn't find why it wouldn't start so another garage looing at it :confused:

Looking very unlikely to get it back for Beaulieu now ... but just been looking for the Flag, Banner, Seats, Forum merchandise etc .... Just realised where it is.

In the Camper of course :eek::eek::eek: Nooooooooooooooo

Jim, Dunno if you remember My W reg Anniversay model that night at the Ace when it just spun over and While waiting for the Yellow van to arrive I tapped the Key on the dash and it started almost like Waking up the Chip. Might be worth a Bash (excuse the pun) LOL:

I suggest we show our appreciation by ensuring that Jim doesn't need to bring his own alcohol. Never met him, but he must be a top bloke given the effort he's put into this and the whole forum.

I know I've got a crate of Magners with his name on it ..... let's see if we can fill his van I:
