The Campervan's First Trip, and other stories, Suffolk - 8th August 2010

The recently-acquired campervan gets its first proper (test) outing, over to the coast at Dunwich and then down to Aldeburgh for fish'n'chips. It's just as well, as we discover several missing things from the quartermaster's inventory - most importantly being matches to light the cooker. D'oh. Still, it's a nice day out, and the learning experience is useful.
