Aaaaaaaaand…..we’re off…

Finally after months of planning and panicking we’re off!

We’ve spent the last few weeks frantically packing up the house, and then the last few days frantically packing up the van. It going to be a while before we can do anything without it being at least a little bit frantic!

We’re really lucky to have been able to spend the weekend staying at my Mum an Dad’s to load up and pick their brains on what to actually do with a motorhome (having to be taught how to open the water filler cap is my biggest embarassment yet…but better now than after I’ve run out of water). It was also good to patch up the the bits I’ve been silently stressing about for the last month, the bike rack and the refillable lpg system (separate posts will be needed).

But this morning were finally ready to go…

Ready for the off, grins are more nerves than anything else.

About to get in and go...

Man With Van

The plan for today was nice and simple, head out from Brancaster, stop in Kings Lynn for a supermarket stop and to fill up the new gas tank (nervy nervy experience!). Then onward to Essex for a place to camp before we venture back into south London tomorrow.

Morrisons carpark selfie….never has anyone ben so pleased to be at Morrisons…except maybe Sal ;O)

Aaaaand, I’m pleased to say, all has gone well, we’ve made it, we’re knackered, and the kids are asleep…happy days. Also…the van didn’t blow up when I did the gas, which is good!

We’re currently tucked up on a campsite in Kelvedon Hatch, me with a beer and Jayne with chocolate biscuits.

First Day Navigated!!

  1. Great to see you safely off on your way, and glad to have been able to help with preparations for the grand departure.

    1. Fingers crossed. She’s getting a bit of French at the moment but we’ll be onto German soon, I’m going to dust off the Michel Thomas course for the driving.
