All being well we will begin by setting off to the north of England in late August, before hand railing the North Coast 500 (NC500), not following it closely, deviating to include the Orkney Islands, Hebrides and Cairngorms. This will serve as a shakedown, not for the van but for us. We haven’t properly lived together for 21 years, due to me working away and anything more than 2 weeks in the van is basically new and uncharted territory. And of course there’s the hairy crocodile, furring up the place and adding various aromas and stupid sloppy cuddles in the morning.
2022 is the year we start our travels. Mortgage is paid off, subscriptions to frivolous things cancelled, budgets reviewed. We have both resigned from our jobs, hoping (economic crisis and cost of living allowing) that we can afford to step away from the rat race and exchange money and stress and pressure, for quality of life, scenery and memories🤞🏻
The aim is to wild camp / free camp as much as possible, using various popular apps and Britstops to keep prices as low as possible.
We have many more mods to Reki to complete and show you, including a move to Lithium leisure batteries and a UV water filtration, before a full strip and service over winter to be ready to head off in Spring, to Scandinavia in order to watch spring become summer!
Stay tuned for updates on our adventures, kit reviews, van mods and of course you’ve yet to properly meet the furry bellend….
