So where have we got to?
As you can see there has been a bit of a delay since our last posting (OK 5 years is probably more than ‘a bit of a delay’ to be fair) but after a number of trials and tribulations with Exped 3 (or ‘The Tank’ as it is now known) including (but not limited to) cylinder head problems, lack of breaks, strange noises etc. we are once again sitting down to work out how and where to do some more touring. Despite the problems the Tank has had, we have actually become attached to it and have decided to keep it, at least for ‘easy’ tours through the UK and Europe. If we decide to go further afield we will probably try to upgrade to something slightly more reliable (such as a Lada or Trabant 🙂 ) but for now the Tank is behaving itself .
One problem we have is how to transport the two of us, two dogs, a teddy bear and all of the ‘stuff’ we need on our travels and to do it safely. Previously we have used the ‘Stuff it in the back and forget about it’ method which works but only if you are going away camping for a weekend. For longer trips it pays to be slightly more organised.
