I will if you will Actually this was kind of why I bought the bus - it came out of that sort of idea. Plan was to be touring Spain for at least a couple of months over the summer. Ironically enough the thing that got in the way of making the Spain trip happen was the impulse to move to the south coast. In the end we got so stressed out trying to make that move happen that we pretty much gave up. I guess the reality of that idea hit me - it's a lot of upheaval for a new life that's ultimately not radically different... So anyway, the only adventure that's likely to happen imminently is a 3 week tour of the South West. Still, it will be enough to work out whether the bus works for us for any more than a weekend - if it does maybe an extended French road trip would be a good idea. If I'm honest it's less about her willingness and more about my resolve to convince her. I'm impulsive, and I change my mind all the time. I'm good at ideas, good at getting other people on board, then I typically get bored and move on to the next idea...(e.g. south coast move). If I'm going to make something happen I need to decide what it is and stick to it. Of course, the missus can throw a spanner in the works at any point - and very probably make me think that calling the whole thing off was my idea. They do have ways.
