1st road trip blog post

Postby MattBW » 02 May 2013, 10:17

I think in future the plan will be to take my proper cameras and use something other than an iphone but blogging my road trips seems to be a good way of getting that fuzzy t25 feeling in between road trips. :)

Anyone else have any blogs to share?

What a great blog. I've spent a lot of money on our bus and I've never been away in it yet, but you've renewed my faith in the possibilities :-)

I'm looking forward to getting going in mine, but the bus is nowhere near ready to go yet. Have you found a 'list' of T25 related blogs yet, I am planning to put a blog list on my site.

That's a great read. Keep on writing as it's this that inspires us bus owners to keep going when the bus won't!

Thanks for reading, i wasnt sure anyone would read ;)

I haven't got a very long list yet. Drive nacho drive and Campervan Culture are probably my favourite blogs I've found so far.

For a phone pic, that sunrise pic is lovely. BUT... it's a lot better to resize the pics before you upload 'em. Everybody who views that page has to download a 2048x1536 pic, which their browser then only shows at 400x300 - the file being downloaded is just over twenty times the size it needs to be.

When you look at it full size, though, there's something very weird going on with the van... Is it haunted?

As for other blogs... <points, immodestly, at sig>

How weird I used the tapatalk app to upload seems to have had a weird effect. Will resize manually in future. :-) Ill check out your blog too :)

nicely written blogs there. I like the sound of Myton Fields, would that be a suitable ploace for me to mess about with my inflatable boat do you think, i.e is it open access?

Yeah it's a public park/car park with launching points for kayaks and small boats. I kayak from there :-)
