Ashby-De-La-Zouch-ward Bound

After several months looking. Much umming. Even more ahhing. I've finally spotted my van - and on Friday I'm off to go get it. My journey to that far flung corner of this great country starts with a bit of hitch-hiking - sometimes referred to as a lift into Gloucester by a neighbour. Then I must ride the great steel horse. On arrival at the sacred gateway to "some place a bit to the right of Birmingham" - Burton-on-Trent - I must face my fear and brave the bus ride of doom before a short run to the emporium of van on the edge of Ahsby-De-La-Zouch. Awaiting me there is the magic mystery mad running mobile....

Tonight it's more bike as I work out my travel arrangements, insurance and tax
