With eight days in England under my belt, I’ve already put in over 1,000 miles in the Defender (293 miles and seven hours on the road today from Blackpool to Crawley).
Prior to departure today, I picked up some custom mattress covers that I had made by an upholsterer. The white covers that came with the mattresses would soon get very dirty – and they stood out like a sore thumb in the back of the Defender. I’ve now got a nice pair of blue heavy-duty, washable covers on the mattresses that match the vehicle color scheme nicely!
Michele arrives at Gatwick about 7.00am Sunday morning and then we head to Dover for the midday ferry to Dunkirk. We’ll be camping in France tomorrow evening – let the fun begin!
I’ll post updates whenever we have wi-fi access.
