    Perusing the old threads, old names, are they still on the road

    I didn’t realise Chris had died! He couldn’t have been that old! I bumped into him at Tarifa one year, I was pedalling around Southern Spain on my pedal bike and we got talking. I was broke that year! I didn’t recognise him at first, as he had lost all his blonde hair. He told me how he had...

    Perusing the old threads, old names, are they still on the road

    You are right Dick, Chris was his name in the Snap On truck. Richard was the guy the did the statue busking act, travelled with a dog Sabado, if I remember right! Bert and Antoinette’s dog was Rubio at that time. Rubio had a fit at me on day when I was clowning, it was very entertaining! A...

    Perusing the old threads, old names, are they still on the road

    That was me with the bits of paper stuck on the wall. I could never get my grammar correct, past, present, singular, plural etc. But definitely not me with the exploding toilet. I think it was blue library in those days, then it went white. I remember Richard the surfer that had the small van...

    No that was Richard the statue act whose toilet exploded because he hadn’t the money to buy chemicals. He did a old man, as a statue, with a bird on his finger. Covered in silver paint he was. He’d been a travel rep for years before he went on the road. Funny what you remember!

    In those day’s I had a large mobile library, I was parked up somewhere outside a town, and you and Therese turned up one evening, there was just the two vehicles parked up overlooking the town, but I can’t remember where it was. We moved on together to Aguilla’s I think!!! My partner at the...

    How much money do I need?

    Am example of some of the damage! A quality dining table had initial’s carved into it. They had either stripped a motorbike engine, or chainsaw engine in the living room, oil went through the carpets, and underlay and the floor boards. We never wore shoes on that carpet. I believe the damage...

    How much money do I need?

    I worked on a site with these, and had one myself that I bought off of the site. I was also friendly with the manager but not the owner. When I bought mine, rent was £1200 a year for 10 months. I lived in it then took off for the shutdown period and longer, as I only had a 7 month contract...

    How much money do I need?

    Part of my friend’s shopping tonight, that he showed me, as an example of how it can be done. I won’t bother with the other photo’s, just to show he probably got a week’s shopping for under £5

    How much money do I need?

    Out of interest, what do you do when travelling around Europe? I'm trying to come up with a list, I've got landmarks/ruins/Museums, famous peoples houses, beaches. Has anyone gone over russia? How far can you go in a MH? India, China, Thailand? I don’t normally recommend FB groups on here...

    How much money do I need?

    Well I think it’s possible on your budget. I too have seen silly budgets quoted, of £2000 a month, by some. My friend shop’s in supermarkets late at night, in the reduced aisle at 9p a item, and he will eat anything. He does have a freezer though. Fish pie can be made by him for a pittance and...
