After having packed the house at the last minute I ended up having to box everything I was taking with me and just sling it in the rear dining area whilst it was in bed configuration.
I have had time finally today to sort most of it out and put the stuff I won’t be using everyday under the floor and get most stuff into the overhead cabinets. The van is starting to feel like home now.
I have already started meeting new people and have had no serious problems at all. I love working in the van with an outside view on 3 sides it makes going to work an absolute pleasure now. Skype is turning out to be a fantastic bit of technology and makes supporting my clients so much easier.
I think the battery bank I have is proving to be overkill for my new slimmed down setup. I used to have a DataStorm dish but that went some time ago. I have been off hookup now for 3 days and only 10% of the battery has been used. That is after using a full bore domestic electric iron to do my shirts with and running my computer etc for 3 days. Almost 1000 AH of battery capacity will be more than enough for most people I think.
I am currently at RAF Coningsby visiting my sister and it is a beatiful little town/big village. Plenty of food places and some really nice pubs. I am going to spend some time here getting to know my nephews. After here I have no plans at all and will just go where my van takes me. I am really happy so far with the decision.
