Had one of those great driving a vw moments today. Went to pick up my van from the garage, where it has been for so long trying to sort out a problem with the carbs.

Re: ***Adventure campout in Symonds Yat***

Home for work and waiting for kids to finish school and should then be on our way :D

Despite owning vans for years it is our first SSVC event, and looks like it's going to be a really good one

We will be in the all silver van so hopefully will get chance to say hi to some of you on here.
