Van 2: Revenge of the Mazda

We have another van!

This time it's a blue Mazda conversion with all the kit - double bed, microwave, sink, grill, gas hobs, table, cupboards, CB radio, USB stereo, dashboard TV, even a mountain bike for those trips to the shop for milk!! Another ebay purchase, we drove over to RAF Brize Norton to pick it up on saturday. Was really nice to drive back actually - it wont go much above 55 mph but that's probably just as well with my driving; as a nice, final kick in the teeth from the last van fiasco I got done for doing 36 in a 30 mile zone driving back from Yeovil after the last van was consigned to the scraphead. So, yes, having a slow vehicle will probably help me stay on the right side of the law as well as the right side of the road, though this one is right hand drive.

Kate has christened it Flash - as it has a 'flash' (more of a grey stripe really) down the side and she thinks it's a bit of a try hard, an uncool vehicle trying to be cool, which I think is harsh. Anyway she really should have called it Slick - because that's what we found underneath it the next day. A load of oil leaking from somewhere onto the road.

Oh dear - we aren't having much luck are we?
