Hello Dandyers.
As some might remember, I regrettably sold out 2006 destiny about 4 years ago.
We did, and still have entered the dark side, and bought a very large tin box on wheels. 4 kids and a dog...it had to be done.
Anyway, we keep our caravan on site in a lovely place called Edern, in Pwllheli. It stays there as we don't have the right car to tow it.
Although we love it there, and visit often, we have found we are missing the camping/glamping side of it and want to get another Dandy. The eldest son no longer comes away with us, and the 2nd eldest... I think this will be his last year, as he leaves school this year.
So, we are looking at buying an older smaller dandy. Possibly a bit of a doer upper. Not got many £££ so probably a doer upper, as long as the chassis and running gear is OK.
Not much about at the moment but here's hoping. Fingers crossed.
Happy dandying people.

Ey up row itch, how are you? Still dandying? Or at least waiting to get out after the whole covid situation.
Stay safe mate, and rake care

Didn't get anywhere last year 2019 I think was just Dent, one other camping trip and Goodwood for the Festival of Speed and the Revival.
Ended up with a 6ft long table someone left behind at Goodwood one year. It gets stored under the cover, and so I tend to set up cooking in the awning now. Gas fridge/ freezer and Tilley lamps set up I've not used a hook-up in years.
Goodwood is great for left behind items. I've got the table, one year my mates gas barbecue had got to the point of being too far gone (I think they are all too far gone gas and barbecue are a contradiction in terms)  and I replaced it with a gas barbecue with a side burner. It had just had the regulator cut off. Alas I couldn't take the best thing I saw left behind. It was a very large stainless steel gas barbecue with multiple side burners and a prep area. I was with Cazz that year in her VW Camper and we just didn't have the space for it. It was worth over £1,000, too much money by half some people.  
Must visit this site more often I was just looking for a piece I wrote where I can no longer remember that, that I once knew!
