Away for a couple of weeks for a holiday, so this site will have a rest.

Taking the caravan up to the North York Moors (Valonia's home country) on Thursday for a week or so then on to Northumberland and Hadrian's Wall area for a few days.

Here we will meet up with my Roman group at the Roman fort site of Birdoswald (Camboglanna - "crooked glen" to the Romans) where we are contracted to do two days of public displays.

Hope the weather improves by then or rusty armour is a definite hazard!

Have fun, people. Catch up with you-all later.

Bon voyage.

Ooh nasty, a rusting breastplate!
That van looks a bit more luxe than the old Sprite Alpine!
Have a great hols!

Have a lovely trip. Yes, B31 sounds about right. The Duke very politely stuck around instead of just taking off. The B31 isn't such a slouch as all that on the narrow winding mountain roads. Don't think they could handle togetherness on I-5.

Glad you liked the links
J. Cosmo;
(where does that name come from?) thanks for visiting, I popped over to your blogs and enjoyed them.
Yes, we've had a few vans over 20 odd years (starting with a very old, rotten 2 berth) but this is a new one and will be the last one.
Yes, I can see that the B31 would be a good scratcher over mountain roads. (we know what we are talking about but it must seem very esoteric to others!)

Oh Wow, Enjoy yourself, it looks like you are doing it up in great fashion.

I would like to buy what is know as a teardrop trailer. Just a bed inside, and outside is a little cooking station. Somethine I could pull behind the van. They are really tiny though. Would fit three times in your caravan.

Very pretty countryside.....

Have a wonderful time and don't forget to show us your photos! Thanks for the North Yorkshire link- it's good to see that in the photo of my home town of Northallerton it's still raining! X v.
