“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Bee goes East

Pleased to stay Bee made it down to Sussex from Taunton with no problems whatsoever. Took the opportunity to test Ants fuel tank welding which thankfully held fast ( never doubted it for a second!). The long drive also gave us a chance to work out what the fuel consumption is gonna be, we have 10,000 miles to cover and a rough idea of the cost will help me work out how much I have left for wine :-).

Passed a few other VW campervans en route, but all going west in the opposite direction - not one of them failed to wave though which was impressive.

Hail stones and wild winds have meant we are not feeling brave enough to tackle the clear out in preparation for the work that needs doing, so maybe get started next weekend.
