  1. I haven’t been flying for 24 years now. I miss it so much that once or twice a month I sit under the stairs all night and read the electricity meter every hour.
  2. Discovered Duchy Baking Potatoes. Only ones in stock at the beginning of lockdown and absolutely delicious
  3. Or, more likely, the van’s chassis, but I think you can get a sort of shock absorber towing hitch to get round that problem.
  4. Not strictly caravan related but our friend (serious kidney problems) received a letter today (along with 1,499,999 others) telling him what to do during the present situation. Confidence in the system withers a bit with the knowledge that he died 10 years ago. How many of the stretched facilities are being wasted this way?
  5. I should have said in my earlier post that sound on the Avtex (I think ours is an 18” set) is perfectly acceptable to us. I think some of the new sets have twin tuners, ie watch one record another.
  6. Main reasons for Avtex are 12v, DVD player and really good customer service. You can get a good enough model from almost anywhere. John Lewis online would be a good place to start.
  7. We were hooked up and ready to go last Sunday but cancelled. It was nothing to do with the caravanning side of things but we thought that if anything did go wrong (we are a gnat’s whisker short of 80) we were better at home than 200 miles away.
  8. Had a weird email yesterday confirming my cancellation of a booking in autumn. Hadn’t cancelled but it seems the club has closed a small number of volunteer run sites. All understandable but I hope they come back on the network when this is all over. We suggested that the club allow those members affected (don’t misread that!) to transfer their bookings to a regular site but with a goodwill discount of the price difference. We hope the club closes all facilities on all club sites to improve the safety of our staff. Booking in and other office contact can be done ‘bank style’ through a window or from the door with no close contact. We plan to spend time in our van on the drive when the weather picks up!
  9. Orange

    Freelander 2?

    I get better mpg towing with my X3 30D than I did solo with my Freelander 2!
  10. If you’re thinking of the M Sport 2L I would recommend going down a model to the X Line and up an engine to the 3L for the same outlay.
  11. Don’t forget the insurance aspect if you have a discount for ALKO ATC.
  12. A gnome on Orkney. I loved that gnome!
  13. Just strike them before use.! I think match sticks are the only way to go. Anything else can be too hard or too permanent. The trick is not to overtighten. Really worried when I read the title of this thread until I realised that Philips and Pozidrive were involved.
  14. Now there’s posh. A handle for each aqua roll!
