Well, that's about it. We had a really smooth ferry crossing and are now in the heart of Dumfries and Galloway at an overnighting spot we've used on a previous break.

The trip's been really enjoyable and the truck's done everything asked of it, including a bit of light trail work, bashing through a lot of road-encroaching vegetation, and hauling us out of a bit of a sinkage-into-peat situation in the Burren whilst trying to share a road of only about 2.5 metres wide with a 2.5m wide tractor.

I had to change the fridge thermostat only a couple of days into the trip as the old one finally failed completely. I've been expecting this failure for some considerable time, hence having the spare (supplied free by Dometic - after a particularly persistent grumble on my part) with me.

Apart from that, our mini circuit of England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland has been trouble free and immensely enjoyable.

Our summer holidays will be the next extended trip but we currently have no idea where that'll take us.
