yeah Brenda, she is doing the shakedown to see if she likes vanning and is possibly doing a few meets. thing is that she is quite shy with folk she doesnt know and reckons that the ukcs guys are all my friends.

have said that especially at bruces it is very open and everyone gets along great (fuelled by copious amounts of alcohol) but will see

we were talking about this weekends weather for the shakedown (dry for a change, fingers/everything crossed) and she kept on referring to it as "our" van

DB, give up with the gallery  

Psyklon, dont have an awning yet, thought I did okay getting a new aquaroll, wastemaster, gas bottle (almost empty), power cable and new leisure battery out of him on a 3500 van. still spent a few bob on step, mirrors and security though. going to get a porch at the SECC show in february (and a lot more methinks)

Bill, cheers for the support mate, with the mega advice from everyone on here it has been great but will be keeping it nice and steady. not as nervous about the weekend trip as I was about bringing her home
