We have just bought a (gorgeous) second hand Jayco Journey.  We realise how lucky we are in these weird times to get our hands on a caravan at all (!) let alone one in our budget / state.

COVID has forced us to close our business earlier than planned (YAY) and rethink / bring forward our retirement plans to travel.  A bit scary at first as this was supposed to happen in a few years' time but now we are super excited.


All we need now is a car to pull it!  The Mini won't hack it :) 


Hubby's classic car (a.k.a. "the other woman") will soon be up for sale in order to buy a "sensible" caravan puller and then we are ON OUR WAY (famous last words).


So looking forward to being in this group we have been "lurking in the background" for ages!

Welcome to the gang Jackie, enjoy here and out in the playground.

Good to see you have come out. Of lurking that is.

Make sure you do all the research on tow vehicles to make sure they can tow the van you have.

Keep Safe on the roads and out there.
