    Don't worry Martin, having dialysis late at night has altered our sleeping pattern and we are both virtually nocturnal. Hence odd times we work.

    Cheers, Nerys

    It's 1am Tuesday, Alice is in the minibus screwing on the birch ply side and rear door panels. That's what I call dedication.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Hi Colin, yes Alice has a ham licence , she's had it since 93, but is inactive as far as transmitting is concerned. The reception etc here is not good with all the overhead power lines and things. At 71 you are far from too old to get a licence, I did about three years ago. It has been simplified in recent years and there are now three grades. I did the course and test for the first grade one just to prove I could at my age. We were going to a local radio club and they ran classes, so I had a go. To tell you the truth, I'm not that interested, When we have the camper finished, Alice plans on going up to the deserted Beacons and setting up a mobile station. No interference up there. The whole hobby has been damaged by cheap electronic equipment, ethernet powerline adaptors etc which make so much noise. The good news is that the sun spots are on the way back up, so propogation should improve.
    Yes, I might indeed call for help, you are far more experienced with this sort of build than me.
    Would be very nice if we could meet up some time, We don't live that far apart.

    All the best Nerys and Alice.

    Thats fine Nerys, I'm always here if any help is needed over the Internet.
    When we can freely travel again we must meet up and have a chat and maybe get to sail a boat or two.
    All the best, Colin and Caroline.
    PS. Is Alice a H.A.M. Radio user.
    My neighbour is and he said I could learn and get my licence . I thought at 71 I would be too old.

    Thanks for your kind words Martin. Yes she is doing a grand job,as usual. She has been varnishing the panels to line the inside today, all the insulation is in so I expect she'll have that finished in a day or two. Once she starts actual construction work I'll get some photos and post them.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Many thanks for your kind offer Colin, but we have a built in electric wheelchair lift that gives me access through the stern doors. It pulls out from under the rear of the van. The idea is that I will get out of the wheelchair there, and walk to my seat up for'ard and Alice will fold the wheelchair and lash it down somewhere still to be decided. Thanks all the same.

    All the best, Nerys

    Nerys it's always a pleasure to hear about your happy adventures, do you have room for a folding ramp, if so I have the one I removed from our ambulance when we did our conversion.
    If you want it you can have it for nothing as I don't want it anymore, it bolts to the floor wit 4 bolts and has gas rams that assist in lowering and raising.
    Let me know if you think it's for you and I'll send you some pictures.
    Cheers Colin.

    Thanks Colin. Yes that's the beauty of a biggish van you get so much better view of everything, but we needed one with a wheelchair lift for me. We looked at several which we would have preferred, but I couldn't get into them. Still I'm sure we will have a lot of good times in this one.

    Cheers, Nerys
