    It cost me a quid and it stopped after exactly 5 minutes, trying to rinse the shampoo out of my hair by cupping my hands under the only tap (cold) on the sink and splashing it haphazardly over my head while standing stark naked on a cold concrete floor may have scarred me mentally for a long time to come.

    @Victoria I'm going around the Baltic Sea this summer so there'll be at least two idiots in knackered old campervans touring Europe. Are you going to be doing a blog?

  6. Wont you need a boat rather than a camper? Or indeed a sled and dogs for the top bit?

    :) There were 9 of us there including the couple in the French thing and you're the only one who noticed the blocked up keyholes. Hmmm! :thinking: Is there anything you'd like to tell us?

    I'm planning to stay mostly on the bits that aren't water and I'll buy a set of chains if needed for the top bit, but hopefully there won't be that much snow in the summer. :)
     
  9. yes i sat n shat i had time to look , i didnt go in the shower it was too slow for me :D
     
  10. How many miles you planning for?

    If I actually get all the way round it'll be in the region of three to three and a half thousand. The more I'm looking at the Finland stretch between Russia and Sweden the less interesting it's looking. Also I'm not that keen on raw herrings which seems to be their staple diet so I may take the ferry from Tallin in Estonia directly to Helsinki which cuts out a great big bit of herrings and forests.

  14. Havent been in touch for years but if you shout "free beer for Brits loud enough" or take a bottle of boddies and leave it open for five minutes he will probably find you!

    I only posted pics of the 'grown-up' rear of my van on here at first!! '72 is best in my biased opinion, though you may want to look here.....

    ... as the crossdresser year has a few nuances when it comes to ordering parts. It's cost me a few £££ in wrong parts to find some of them!
     
  16. If you use a roof rack/box, then maybe some small foldable steps?? or a milk crate to stand on - use as a step too.
