Although I do visit this site quite often i haven't posted for ages, time to put that right. The wife and I are still fulltiming in our van, nearly 2 years this time.

We were supposed to be in Spain for the Winter, had the ferry booked etc but we couldn't go alas.

Hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2019.

well if your in cornwall call in. usually a place in the drive for visitors.
might be in for a shock if you do . today i noticed daffodils are sprouting in my front garden.
plus the front hedge on the pavement side will need a good trim soon.
fresh growth of undergrowth etc .
i hope it doesnt get really cold as its nice to see the fresh green .
had a nice blue sky for awhile today but then the clouds were back.
could see the sea over newquay way though from the local hilltops.
glad i live here , the scenery is great.

how's it going Alan,
decided to retire after getting a few stents fitted after a heart attack in Bulgaria...and failing a couple of medicals for offshore
fantastic treatment in the Hospital in Sofia, absolutely spot on
I was 3/4 of the way through building a house when all that happened, so finishing that off and selling took a bit longer than expected
moved back into my old house...which was the plan, but maybe not as quick, so now I'm doing a bit of 'remodelling' bathroom, kitchen, new doors, facings skirtings and decoration, so never a dull moment
Still got my 73 type 2 tucked up in the garage waiting for an outing
how about yo, are you on your travels or at home enjoying the strangely mild weather were having
going to the Algarve in March for a bit of touring, decided to hire a camper down there

hi. here in uk . only doing short breaks away .
still have the artic but do think about getting a vw t2 , mind the prices these days i think i probably wont, hee hee.
might go for another bongo or a toyota hi ace or nissan cabstar.
decided if i go smaller then gotta be narrow and no high or lift up roofs.
probably no windows as well.
lots of nice sneaky places if the camper is small.
glad you got sorted health wise . i say waking up in a morning is the start of a good day.
having lost a lung as a teenager . had throat cancer in my 50,s then diagnosed charcot marie tooth. a nerve/muscle wasting complaint every day is a bonus.
still have m,bikes , have ride outs if dry and not too chilly. lots to do and see every day. down here its great in winter ,quiet and easy to park. but some of the real nice places a vw etc are the ideal ones for using. luckily i can park up then use the bike.
but miss the narrow vw,s or that secret parking in the really wild places.
have a good time and enjoy every minute.
