    Hi... Long time huh! I’ll start this reply with the news that my dad passed away back in August last year. He had fought hard but eventually it was all a bit too much and in his own words he said ‘fuck it, i’m out’ !! That was dad, he was ready and even in the last hours we was still cracking...

    Base camp...

    Hi Coola.. This I guess sums it up...you've travelled the areas and have seen a lot that we have yet to see but still you say about travelling with no ties or a base. We thoroughly enjoy the freedom of drifting along and seeing new places all the time and one of the main reasons we gave up the...

    Base camp...

    Hi all, hope life is treating you well and all that? BASE CAMP...home from home...needing some thoughts and inspiration from those that have been travelling, staying in sunnier climes over winter and willing to enlighten us with their experience. We've done a lot of travelling over the past few...

    Hello again all you lovely people. Hope life is treating you all well and the past few months have not frozen any bits off if you've been stuck in colder climes rather than sun drenched Spain/Portugal. A lot has gone on over the past few months since we've been back in UK. Mostly positive...

    Sardinia

    Seasonal greetings to all, hope life is treating you well? We're hanging around in the UK for now but we're sniffing around a trip to Sardinia. Don't know too much about it but Aggy has shown me a load of pictures and it looks superb. I can google and try and read up on it online but knowing...

    Peugeot Pilote Adventura A650

    The van is very clean and Rob, the owner is my brothers mate. He is 200% straight up guy, very nice fella. His wife reversed the Audi back onto the corner and cracked it. That part is £400 for a new one. The damage is minimal but he is getting it repaired. Under neath is unmarked and nothing to...

    Peugeot Pilote Adventura A650

    I'm RWD biased but having driven this today it drove okay and I admit the extra size and light made a lot of difference compared to our self build. Looking online and trying to get a fair price there's not a lot to compare apart from a low line version. £23k or something like that. This one is...

    Peugeot Pilote Adventura A650

    As per title, a friend of my brother has one of these he's looking at selling. He had it from new and has only 14,000 miles from new. It's an 05 model and it is in mint condition internally. A few little bits on the outside but overall very clean. My questions. Are they any good these flimsies...

    Back in UK. Dad took turn for worse and a few issues with house purchase cropped up. One minute we're sat with Notary/Solicitor doing paperwork and the next we're on a ferry back to UK. Dad has improved in the last day or so but obviously his situation is deteriorating. It's now apparent that...

    Cheers Danny....the van works for us and has more than proved itself over time. I've got loads of pictures of the van in various stages but they're all over the place. I really should make a bit of an album but ......well, too lazy!! Cheers again.

    Over the time that we've been coming to Poland we've gone from top to bottom, left to right and nigh on all over the place and it just keeps giving little treats. With everything we need local in the area and the forest/national park 200 yards away, it really does feel like the right choice for...

    Cheers....what could possibly go wrong! We just had a phone call from the house owners and it sounds as though everything is set their end. They've spoken with our chosen notary and the paperwork is all in order so that's good. In a nutshell we will probably own the place by Thursday or Friday...

    Greetings all. This was a place we stopped over night last week. A few years back we stayed in the same location but that was when we had the Delica towing our caravan. Just wanted to go back and stay here again as it was the first "real" wild camp in that set-up and we wanted to reminisce a...

    Hope you're well on the road to recovery if not on the road full time. I'm sure you don't need me to tell you take it easy but...take it easy. All the best.

    This is Dougal, our little fella. He's a Jack/Corgi cross and simply awesome. Having come to us from a rescue centre he is the main reason we are now living in a van rather than living the dream in Thailand as a diving instructor. We had the chance to go and live in Thailand and took 3 weeks...

    Just been looking over the many hundreds if not thousands of pictures from various trips either in UK or around Europe over the past few years. I guess you all probably have much the same situation as I do, click away and take pictures but not share them. My excuse was I hadn't really played...

    I actually quite like it. It's too big for what we do but something about it feels right. It is obviously for sale and I said I'd try and help him with UK. Then the overhang issue came up. I've given him that info and he should be back with the measurements soon. I could see me buying this and...

    Having spoken with the guy Alan, we are pretty certain that the old fella that owned it must of just stuck them on, why? No idea. We might be popping back that way in a week or two so I will be taking a closer look at the old truck. I also asked if the electrics and gas work. He hasn't had a...

    That answers that question then. It's not V8. The plate inside the door states 7490.
