I needed cheering up so I bought a Renault 4 van...

......I've really lost it this time.

I realised that I'd had vehicles from the 1960's onwards,  but never one from the '80's,  so that's sorted.

 

I last drove a Renault 4 when I drove the Open University one back from Lisbon in 1986,

with a large geologist and a pile of rocks, and I couldn't believe how simple and capable this little car was.....

I was a fan of Minis at the time, but the 4 was an eye-opener.

Good for you.

I've often thought how much I'd like a camper van...motor home, or whatever they're called. The perfect leisure travel solution for those who appreciate the countryside.

i thought about it a lot during covid, as it would have meant the freedom to travel without having to mix with anyone else.  I could even have taken the cat with me. 

The idea seems just as viable as we start to enter a post covid world.

My wife bought a large camper van off our friends very cheaply when they bought a new one, and just loves it.

 

I'd rent one cheaply out of season and you'll find out if it suits you very quickly!

I mean a camper van, not a wife...
