Apologies about the inconsistent timeline...

After the Isle of Wight, but before the Airstream rally, I nipped up to Alderstead Heath Caravan Club Site. 'Oh, we've got another one of those on site' said the warden, gesticulating at my Airstream. So. much to the assistant warden's surprise, I passed on my favourite pitch in order to set up opposite the other trailer...

This 1966 Overlander has been shipped over and worked upon by its owner Richard. Together with his gorgeous family, Richard was en route to France and Switzerland to promote his super website It's a website all about ski resorts especially suited to mobile phones and it's pretty stonking.

Naturally, there was a wine-fuelled Airstreaming Evening involved... :-)
