    Off to Wales we go........

    All packed and ready for the road tomorrow. We are off for a week to 9 days hopefully touring the Welsh coast and stopping off for a couple of days with a friend who moved there a few years back. This will be our first longish trip and we can only hope that our intermittent engine problem does not spoil it for us. We have decided to get out there despite our reservations and enjoy ourselves .

      We may well meander down the coast in the Aberystwyth direction next week after our festival in Anglesey.

                Well, we made it and to be honest we have been pleasantly surprised by the reliability of the van. Just under 300 miles and only a couple of minor misfires which caused us no problems and has given confidence that we can live with it. Shorter but extremely hilly journeys has put the van through its paces and todate no issue (tempting fate now). The weather has been very good to us so far, although I am sitting in the camper with plenty of liquid sunshine showing itself right now. Our friends in Pembrokeshire have been really kind to us letting us stay on their farm and using this as a base to travel from so we are getting to see lots of the South coastal areas rather than our planned tour up the west coast, we can leave that for another day.

                There are some fantastic old Castles and little bays to visit and the beaches are excellent for walking. We are due to drive back tomorrow but will definately be back as we have really enjoyed our stay. Lots more touring to do and plenty more to see......

                  Could just be that the van needs using to blow the cobwebs away. I think we might have discussed that before on a previous thread. All sorts of gunk and rubbish can find its way into the fuel lines when an engine doesn't do many miles and causes the kind of symptoms you describe. Working it hard and clearing out the muck should do it the power of good.
                  Better a rainy day on the hill than a sunny day in the office!
