Ya reckon :lol:

It's been a very odd year or more, but now I'm young free and single, well 2 of the 3 anyway :wink:
I can afford a van, got one lined up, but not set in stone, yet....

Jeez, just typing on here again, I can feel the urges :roll:
Warm days and toasty camp fire nights, on a field with 80-90 friends.
Steam rallies.
Air shows.
Model aeroplane comps.
Wild camping, just because...

Roll on spring and summer...

Thanks for the welcome back folks :ok
Nice to see all the regulars are still here.

As mentioned in my post above, I have a van lined up, a nice red one, it's a 1.9 Diesel :shock:
It's in good nick body wise and has had the entire interior replaced recently with a very nice quality home brew jobby.
Sink / cooker unit is a kinda "modular" layout and It's all a rather sexy / cozy black theme inside.
Currently running a bit low and on silly wheels n tyres. The guy is going to put it back to standard before / if I buy it.
Then it will be Propex (or similar), CB radio (I have a new, very fancy one) and away I go :D 8) :pimp

Hoping to have it ready to go to Oswestry :ok
