Hello Fellow Vanners
This time last year My aged sprite finally gave up the ghost and is now a
permanently sited shed. Oh how sad we all were to see it go. (We still visit
it from time to time . Just for a trip down memory lane) . There we were My
wife and my 3 children wondering what on earth we would do for our holidays
this year. then blow me One of my work mates asked me if I knew anyone who
wanted a caravan. I said I did indeed I did How much is the asking price. Oh
nothing he replied I just need shot of it. I then picked myself up from of
the floor of the bus .(Did I mention we were bus drivers well we are Oh yeah
he was driving so it didn't matter that I had fallen over Well it did cos I
got my uniform dirty.) I thanked him as much as ever I could. the following
weekend we trundled the 10 or so miles to the location where the caravan was
stored. I was expecting to see a green caravan shaped blob in a back garden.
Much to my surprise I was presented with a wonderful eldis in rather good
condition. a little greenery but far less than I had expected.Oh golly I
said ( well I didn't but I wanted to but thought I might look silly) What a
lovely caravan. My children were jumping up and down ( I find they always
come down after jumping up ) Anyway in short order the caravan was moved to
my home where it now lives. Out came the long brushes and buckets of warm
soapy water and once the kids were scrubbed clean I went to look over the
caravan. Oh deep joy it is great all the bits and bobs that the sprite never
had like comfy beds and doors that don't let a gale through a fridge that
really gets cold . Oh what a lovely present. So watch out for a bus driver
towing an eldis this spring (I'll be the one who is late I expect).
I am sorry this may appear a silly post but I am so chuffed I had to try to
share my feelings. Oh yeah Jasper Carrot you are a very silly man if you
ever try to use the facilities in my caravan whilst queuing behind me there
is a charge.Funky moped was rubbish too.

It's not a silly post, I really enjoyed it, especially the description of
the kids' ablutions. Wish I'd thought of that method. Sorry about the Sprite
though ...

But you said, "... doors that don't let a gale in ..." You have more than
one door? I saw a caravan like that once but it was old.

And will you be towing your new love behind a bus?

Thanks, John, I share your joy.

Mary

I didn't see the original message, presumably it was posted to more
than one group and I have my reader set to eliminate all crossposts
because of the recent problems.
I hope you enjoy your new ( to you van )

Ah you spotted my missing S That S has escaped from another post to another
group. I have only one door on My caravan . I do remember seeing some with a
back door in my youth .( No they were not horse drawn) How ever I feel that
back doors are not much good because they take space that could be used for
somthing else. Unless of course you have 2 awnings. Now theres a thought.
Oh by the way Jeremy Clarkson eat my elsan.

Being a proof reader in another life very little escapes my notice.

Except, of course, my own typos ...

We're hoping to have a second awning on out little van, it won't fit tightly
because there's no awning rail at the back but it will be useful for storing
and shelter for the hens.

The 'van with the back door I saw was cunningly designed and no space was
wasted at all. I was very impressed.

Oh by the way Jeremy Clarkson eat my elsan.


Oh - it was HIM!
