When it doesn’t go quite right…

This is a story time blog, and it’s quite funny, so I thought I would share it with you. To put this story in context, I try to launch videos each Friday at 6am UK time. In order for this to happen the video must be filmed, edited and uploaded to YouTube by Thursday evening. In reality, I try to make sure that I have all this completed a few days before the deadline and to fit in with work commitments too. With that in mind, you will appreciate how fed up I was when I was still filming, had completed no editing on this video at 7pm the night before it’s due to be released, it...

Caravan Cleaning with Mellerud

Cleaning the caravan. You either love it or hate it. For me it’s a great time to unwind, care for the caravan and get it ready for the next adventure. In general, I find it quite cathartic. One thing I do not enjoy however is those pesky black streaks. They are every caravanners worst nightmare. The black streaks are formed from the rubber seals around windows, roof lights and other seals around the exterior of the caravan. As sunlight degrades the very top layer of rubber (exactly what its supposed to do, otherwise it will crack and perish) it creates a loose layer of material that can be...

The YouTube bubble

Let me start by stating I love YouTube. I use it on a daily basis. It gives me entertainment, it provides me knowledge and perspective. As a content creator, it provides a place to output my ramblings and share my thoughts. I really do love YouTube. But, don’t be fooled. Once you are in the YouTube bubble, it consumes you. It envelops you. It encourages you to watch another kitten montage, more Russian dash cams and “in the moment” trends of challenges that people feel compelled to share with the world. It really can consume hours of your life as you hop from video to video. As a creator, it...

Winter preperations

This time of year sees many caravanners pack their ‘van up and not use it until the spring and the warmer weather returns. We generally don’t winterise the caravan, but there are a few steps that should be followed when laying the caravan up for an extended period of time. We recently recorded a checklist video to show some of the things you should consider when you don’t use the van for some time. We cover the exterior, interior, the water system, gas and electrics – plus some other areas too. Here is our winterisation video...

2016. Wet & miserable.

2016. Wet & miserable.

And so here we are. Half way through the first month of 2016. Last year promised so much. Our first year of active holiday making, journeys and adventures in our new caravan. Sadly mid way through the year things didn’t quite turn out that way. With the loss of a dear friend, much loved one and never recovering from that or a £3,000 car bill holidays were cut short in July. We did manage a couple of outings later in the year, but to be completely fair our heart, our passion wasn’t really in it. 2016 however promises to be our time to start again. WE ARE / WE HAVE planned on 9 epic holidays...
