Summertime 

What will the summer of 2017 bring? Cracking the flags wall to wall sunshine, or gloomy grey days with wind and rain.  Harping back to the 70s, summers seemed long with endless days. Warmth from early morning to bedtime. Playing out till we either got hungry or night time started to fall. Those endless summer... Continue Reading →

The Life of a Bailey Pursuit

I sit quietly at the storage yard amongst a multitude of other 'Memory Boxes.' Most used regularly, loved and polished. Other boxes sit amongst us lonely and unloved, desperate for care and attention. My fridge is switched on and filled, blinds opened. Steadies wound up, The Volvo reverses slowly, the hitch lowers and clicks into... Continue Reading →

We both left school in 1983 aged 16 and started work at McDonalds, Bolton (UK), back in the days when people still expected a knife and fork with their food. Aged 17 we started... Continue Reading →

Looking back at 2016

Looking back it seems like we have packed an awful lot of trips into 2016 and done quite a bit of tinkering to make the caravan more personal to us. We upgraded our Orion 400-2 for a Bailey Pursuit 560-5 and with the arrival of the Pursuit in November, 2015 the blog was born. We... Continue Reading →

Our Vinyl Release

Could you part with your vinyl record collection? Probably the first blog we noticed about full-time travelling in a motorhome was 'Eric and Shazza''Big Momma's Great Adventure' whereby Eric, who we briefly met in his role of Caravan Club Site warden, realised he needed to clear out his, quote .." tat  cherished possessions" before embarking on...
