…it was on a site put together by a traveller called Dave (Traveller Homes) with loads of photos of travellers buses, trucks, caravans and the like. Great memory laning for me. This lobster van was my first ever travelling home – an old Post Office Leyland EA in which Tiggz and I crawled around Europe in ’89 frequenting various festivals and juggling conventions. This picture was taken at the eviction party on a huge squatted island in the north of Amsterdam. The lobster was painted because I only had black and white paint. Obviously…

On returning to Blighty I lived in it with Louise and 2 mad dogs before we all started to get cabin fever and upgraded to a full size bus…

(I expect Daddy P and KPX will have fond memories of this beauty dripping oil in their driveway for a few weeks…)

I didn’t surf today.

    I always wanted one of the US Postal Jeeps – they were terribly exotic since they had the steering wheels on the ‘wrong’ side of the cab. Little did I know I’d be living in a country where all the steering wheels would be on the ‘wrong’ side. 😉

    I think I’m going to put that into a random thought on my blog…
