Hi all
We are counting the days now as there are only 41 till we leave our home for good. It has been sold and we are busy packing. We will be collecting our caravan 30th June so we will be staying with son on the floor until then. It is a freeing and releasing feeling as we dispose of our years of hoarding. We will be keeping just a few things in storage but all of our furniture and white goods are gone. Now we have just a few boxes of things to install into our caravan. Hmmm 14th of June...here we come!

We are going to try Avon 'Skin So Soft' bath oil mixed 50/50 with water to keep the bitey things at bay. Heard that this really works. We will see....

Cheers Jack

Have a great life .... look forward to hearing more later .....
btw - did you get larger transmission cooler for the Henry - have heard of two 'cooking' theirs ... also recommendation to use synthetic oil (takes heat better) .

Thanks Lizard
My Effie is a manual so no need for larger cooler (I think). I was going to go the synth anyway.

Its a great feeling. Footloose and fancy free. We did just that when we were in our 50's, but after 5 years on the wallaby got sick of it, bought another house and now have twice as much crap.....LOL. We still get out every now and then though............

Enjoy your freedom!


Cheers
