We Have A Van!

On Tuesday myself and “The Critter” travelled north to Edinburgh. The train journey went without a hitch and as planned we met the seller at Waverley Station. The process went very well (Thank you Graeme, a productive deal for both of us). After an extensive handover, we journeyed back to Wrexham, with a short stop on the M74, so the “The Crit” could take on emergency foodstuffs, she had a fatbusting burger and chips, whilst I was very sensible and chose the healthy option: ¬†chicken burger, chips and a diet coke!!

The van handled very well on the return journey and we were safely back in Wrexham at 6pm and new holders of the land speed record ūüėČ

So, since the trip, I’ve spent some time getting to understand how everything works and generally getting ready for our maiden voyage which is this weekend to a site near to Moel Famau in the Clwydian Range:¬†http://www.brynbowliocaravanpark.co.uk (review to follow).

The New Van – Update

The sale is progressing well. On Tuesday myself and daughter No 2, otherwise known as “The Critter” make the journey north to Edinburgh to seal the deal. The Critter has demanded many perks in order to give up her day off to accompany Dad. So its a First Class Seat(which was actually cheaper than the available 2nd Class). This means only one thing to her? ¬†“Free Snacks”. Then it will be a 4hr plus ride back in the van to the sounds of “Dad’s tracks of his years”. ¬†There may be critter tears I fear! and not of the joyful type.

We have also booked two nights on a small camp site near Moel Famau for next Fri. This will give us a chance to give the van a shake down, get to know how everything works and of course get a walk or two under the belts.
