WELCOME TO OUR BLOGSITE. IT'S MAINLY ABOUT OUR TRIPS - IN A TRUCK.

WHILST TRAVELLING OVERSEAS WE USE THE TRAVELOGUES SECTION OF THE SITE TO DOCUMENT OUR LOCATION, RELAY SOME EXPERIENCES, AND TO TAKE THE OCCASIONAL WITHERING STAB AT TRYING TO MAKE SOME SENSE OF THE WORLD.

BY DEFAULT, POSTS APPEAR IN DATE ORDER WITH THE MOST RECENT FIRST BUT NAVIGATING TO THE START OF EACH TRIP IS EASILY ACHIEVED BY FOLLOWING THE 'OLDER POSTS' LINKS.

AS WELL AS MEMORIALISING TRIPS, THE SITE ALSO OFFERS A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO US, OUR TRUCK, AND A FEW USEFUL RESOURCES.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR VISIT!

Unfeasibly hot all day. Managed a run before breakfast and then we both swam in a leisure park lake. Emma didn't get too far though, the sight of a fish proved a little too much. Fish, in a lake?

We did a lot of logistical stuff taking on food, water and fuel which made it a long day in spite of it being a shortish drive to where we are now in one of my favourite parts of France. Chocolate-box villages in spectacular countryside right in the very north eastern corner.

Hoping to do a bit of early-morning bird watching tomorrow while Emma goes out on the bike - then heading into Germany.

Truck going well apart from an old problem with the indicator relay sticking (thought that was cured) and the fridge having to work much harder than I'd like (28° on truck at 23:30).
