A fabulous van and no mistake governor! Not having these items can result in on the spot fines. In the UK there are no regulations making it compulsory to drive with certain equipment in your vehicle.
This makes British drivers an easy target to stop and check by European authorities. The result is that many British drivers have been fined when driving in Europe for not having the correct equipment. To avoid receiving an on-the-spot fine when driving in Europe, Ring have launched their European travel kit which contains essential items for travel in Europe.
Some of the products are obvious such as having a GB sticker for the vehicle, to the less obvious alcohol breathalyzers that are required in France. Tony Chamberlain of TC Motorhomes an established dealership that already has new motorhome franchises including Swift, Autocruise, and the Bailey Range was pleased that the success of his company was being recognised by some of the biggest names in the industry.
He added that the success of his team in Herne Bay was in large measure down to their collective focus on delivering customer satisfaction and quality products, be it New Or Used and Value For Money. An unbeatable selection of vehicles prepared to the highest standards. Moat Barn was perfectly placed for exploring Suffolk and its heritage coastline with places of interest to hand including Framlingham Castle, Sutton Hoo, Woodbridge Tidemill, Snape Maltings and Orford Ness offering members plenty of choice for walking, cycling or bird watching.
Culinary requirements ere catered for by the local village pub or short drives to the likes of Felixstowe, Aldeburgh and Orford offering a good choice of river pubs and restaurants covering all tastes. As the weary travellers booked in to the site they were warmly greeted by Rally organisers Ursula and Peter Gardiner, and as light and temperature faded this warmth was further extended by mine hosts with a wine and cheese gathering to welcome new members and reunite old friends, Day two dawned with woolly hats and warm coats still the order of the day as Club members departed to their chosen location spoilt for choice for rambling and bird watching at the likes of Orford Ness, cycling to Woodbridge or catching the local bus to Felixstowe or Ipswich for a heady mix of history and window shopping.
This hauntingly picturesque acre estate, with beautiful views over the River Debden to Woodbridge beyond, is the location for one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Walking round the 6th and 7th century burial mounds, Club members discovered the fascinating story of the ship burial of an Anglo Saxon King and his treasured possessions. In the award winning exhibition centre visitors were able to view the full sized reconstruction of the burial chamber, superb replicas of Saxon treasures, and original finds from one of the mounds including a Saxon sword.
With further opportunities to walk round the home of Mrs Pretty, land-owner and sponsor of the original excavations, Club members were able to scroll forward years and experience Edwardian living in sharp contrast to their Saxon ancestry. Once back at Moat Barn it was a dash for the showers as members spruced up for the short coach ride to the Coach and Horses, Melton where chefs and staff catered effortlessly for the needs of 46 hungry and vocal Timberlanders.
Managed by the National Trust it is a rare survivor of coastal lowland heath; the Suffolk Sandlings used to form a great deal of the Suffolk coast, but has mostly been developed for building and agriculture. The Heath is mainly covered with heather and gorse flowering June to September with woodland and grassland included in the reserve. Starting out from the Trusts car park under the guidance of organiser Peter Gardiner, a short coffee break in the tea rooms offering stunning views of the coastline imbibed strength and sustenance for the forthcoming walk.
At the end of the day a weary but much fulfilled convoy made its way back to the Moat Barn where the evening found stories unfolding over several glasses of wine with Club members enjoying a more coloured complexion not courtesy of the cold but thankfully the sun, which accompanied us for most of the day.
The idea was not entirely new. For a long time, Westfalia had been building a camper van named the Joker, which was based on the VW Transporter. The basic layout of this custom camper van proved to be very practical over the years.
A folding bench seat for two persons at the rear, which could be laid flat for reclining, and a narrow kitchen counter along the left side of the interior with a refrigerator, gas stove and sink and storage space. This type of layout leaves a large space for entry through a wide sliding door. However, the Joker with its well-conceived detailed layout and many small extras had become unaffordable for the average customer.
And this is precisely where Volkswagen stepped in. With a thick red pencil and an eye towards significantly higher production volumes, designers trimmed the features of the Joker down to a healthy level. This set the stage for an entire generation of California camper vans, an idea that would be expressed over the next 25 years.
Unlike high-roof vehicle models and those with a long wheelbase, the California featured a pop-top roof that articulated at the rear over all of its years and generations. The current California Beach Edition still embodies the initial basic idea of an economical camping van. Tel Awnings and pets allowed.

Those who are young enough to enjoy the thrill of a hot hatch are faced with crippling insurance and by the time they can afford it many will have started a family and a hot hatch is low on the priority list. The boot affords you litres of luggage space; the seats fold allowing you more. Driving this beast is exciting, the PS 1. We found the doors very big indeed, they need to be for getting in and out of the back seats but they are big and very heavy.
To my elderly eyes all very confusing but I was able to get radios 2 and 4 without a problem. The top speed for those with the nerve is mph but this august magazine does not recommend such behaviour. In fact, if your computer is destroyed by fire or flood it's usually possible to recover what's on the hard disk.
Actually a computer is a much safer place to keep important items. The reason is that it's very easy to take a copy of what's on your computer. It's much easier than keeping up to date copies of all your paperwork, imagine doing that every day! Decide how often you need to back up.
This depends on how much you input to your computer each day: A daily back up means you would never need to repeat more than the previous day's work.
The simplest way to do this is to search for all the files you have modified since the last backup and copy them to a CD which you take off site each evening. Please don't copy on to floppy disks — you'll need a lot, it's very time consuming and they aren't reliable. If you're feeling sophisticated you can back up everything via the internet to one of several specialist companies who offer this service.
If taking things off site isn't practicable you can consider buying a small safe. There are principally two kinds: Go for the fire proof type: I can assure you that it'll be pretty thief proof as well; they are very heavy, too heavy for anyone to carry away.

Chubb used to reckon you could put a chilled bottle of Champagne in one of their safes and put it into a furnace for half an hour; when you take it out of the furnace the Champagne is still chilled!
But I digress, I usually do when Champagne comes to mind. Most people think about backing up data about 10 minutes after it's too late to do any good. Don't be one of those. Start backing up now and don't get caught out. It is an extraordinary piece of self-deception by our at-long-last very-soon-to-be-departing Prime Minister.
Spin and manipulation got him his job in the first place.
And they sustained him in office. It is no coincidence he clung on as long as possible to his discredited pair of weazelly media manipulators, the thuggish Alastair Campbell and the oleaginous Peter Mandelson. They only left when they were forced out in disgrace — and went on to make a fortune elsewhere ironically, in the media in Campbell's case at any rate. Never let it be forgotten that the Blair administration's eagerness to manipulate the media gave us such classic moments as September 11 which was "a good day to bury bad news".
It gave us the hounding to death of weapons expert Dr David Kelly. And most appallingly of all, it landed us with death and destruction in Iraq which Tony Blair will now walk away from.
InI had my own brief experience as a victim of Blair's media manipulation. Alastair Campbell provided him with a series of quotes from an article I wrote. They were partial and highly-selective but deployed in the House of Commons they were able briefly to wrong-foot William Hague, then leader of the Conservative Party. It was a humiliating time for me.
Even now, it gets brought up and used against me. The media never bothered to ask me for my response or even to read the article Blair claimed to be quoting from.
If they had done so, they would have concluded, as the then party chairman Michael Ancram did, that it was anything but the attack on William Hague it was purported to be. Indeed, had anyone bothered to read it, they would have discovered it was an article about how important it was for the country to have a Conservative Government.
The point of going over this old ground is merely that my brief notoriety was, in part, the result of a docile media quite happy to lap up any morsels Alastair Campbell threw down for it. When the hounds were devouring me, they did so without question because they had been given the scent and pointed in my direction by none other than Tony Blair himself.
That man willingly used every lie, subterfuge and trick he could to manipulate the media in his favour. The way Dr Kelly was hounded to his death was infinitely worse than the experience I endured but I understood how he must have felt — helpless at the hands of the all-powerful Blair propaganda machine. It is true that the media can run out of control. Sometimes an incident or a personality does spark an ugly feeding frenzy, even without the help of the Labour Party.
The media does set itself up as judge and jury. Sometimes, it gets things wrong. The Bob Woolmer affair is an example. The Pakistan coach's mysteriously ill-timed death provoked worldwide speculation. Who killed him and why? Expert analysis of cricket, the Asian mafia, match-fixing and big-money stakes were all given a spin. Even Islamic fundamentalists were lined up to take the blame. But before we accuse the media for all this, let's remember that not only was Woolmer's death big news in its own right, so soon after his team's shock defeat by Ireland, but the police announced it was murder.
And it was all provoked not by the media but by the Jamaican police. It was the police who gave the speculation legitimacy by announcing, wrongly as it turns out, that Mr Woolmer had been strangled.
Yes, the media has egg on its face. But nothing like as much as the police. And the "feral" frenzy over Woolmer was provoked not by the media but by those who consciously unleashed the slavering beast by feeding it tasty tit-bits.
This cricket story may be some way off the world inhabited by Mr Blair but the lessons are the same. The media does have a nasty side. But it rarely begins to snarl and bite unless it's provoked and given a reason to. Tony Blair supped with the devil and made his Faustian pact. He used the media to create and sustain him. He has no right to complain, now that the media has seen to it that he's leaving in disgrace as a failed Premier and a discredited politician.

As a close chum of Rupert Murdoch, he will feel it's pay-back time. The media is about to become Mr Blair's route to a fortune when he sells his memoirs and flogs them to the papers and TV stations. Mr Blair is a filthy, hypocritical, lying scumbag with blood on his hands and the sooner we are rid of him the better. But it seems his exit will be as smarmy as all that has gone before. As a farewell gift to Gordon Brown a European Constitution by the back door is bad enough. But for Tony to become the first President of the super-state that constitution creates would be a bitter blow to Gordon and the country Blair quits to seek his fame and fortune.
It was to be President of Europe. It gives me no satisfaction to be proved right. Good old BBC eh? While listening to the radio 2 lunchtime discussion programme a must if you can listenI heard the Scotts were proposing free university tuition for Scottish students. This was not to be extended to English, Welsh or Northern Irish students.
The next comment was maybe the English should do similar. But at what cost? What ever we think of the tuition fee system, if we are all subject to the same rules, we are all rewarded or penalized equally. But if one section cuts them selves off in this way, is it the thin end of the wedge. Will we fall into the racist belief that English, Scotts, Welsh and Irish are all different? What if you are Scottish but live in England? Will all English Students refuse to go to Scottish Universities?
Will it stop at education?
