Do you wear gloves when you empty your toilet?

October 12th 2018

Dear Subscribers I always look for gloves when I diesel up or pump up the tyres and I know I should when emptying the toilet, but I grew up wearing wellies. Agricultural excuses aside, I have sourced the most practical neoprene gloves for the bog job and being a complete idiom, I have put a pair on the cassette handle to force my hand. I also put pairs on my fuel cap and with my foot pump. NEC U there Meli and I will be at the NEC next week looking at all things caravan. Keep an eye on Facebook for things that amuse, b ...Continue Reading

September 13th 2018

Regrettably we are going to fail, so we searched for the best alternative we could find. Read about 100 driving tours below.

New Italian Aires and TPMS discount

July 27th 2018

Dear Subscribers Our WildAx camper just had its first birthday so we took it to parties at WildAx in Elland, Yorkshire and Motorline in Ashford, Kent, who provided excellent service. WildAx went above and beyond normal expectations, for which we are very grateful. WildAx also carried out a couple more modifications for us. All we need now is a time travel module and we will have the perfect camper. *Contents* Italian Aires Guide 2018 £20 off Michelin Tyre Pressure Monitoring System Too hot to sleep? *Italian A ...Continue Reading

New 80kmh speed limit France and 2019 AA Road atlases

July 6th 2018

Dear Subscribers I can imagine that the new 80kmh speed limit across France will suit a lot of motorhomers and caravanners. We have provided everything you need to know to keep legal on our blog and some interesting observations about French driving style too. The 9 minutes extra travel time per 100km is insignificant for most people, but we will lose half a working day per 10 days during inspections. You can help us by submitting site updates or ‘stayed the same’ at all of the Aires you visit. A ...Continue Reading

Vicarious - Product News - Six new guides for Scotland and Scandinavia

May 31st 2018

Dear Subscribers Before I tell you about the new guidebooks I feel I should write a paragraph about GDPR. Overall I believe that GDPR is a good thing. For example, we have mucked out and improved our systems adding several more layers of security. We had to update our newsletter sending program to reach compliance. The improvements include fair tracking features that anonymously record how many receiver reactions there are, i.e. click throughs, unsubscribes and undelivered bounces. In the unlikely event that you have ...Continue Reading
