Loads of interesting craic!!!

I liked your 'Its nice to go away but its nice to come home' So would you say that most dubbers like the weekend away idea, but wouldn't fancy it for a longer period lifestyle (Nomadic). Does the slight suffering in an uncomfy van add to the relief of going home? Or is the van an extension of home for some people just dinky a version..Or is the van an alter-ego..where its an excuse to act different from normal life. :rolf:

I could live in the van for a long period of time
But the restraints of modern life prevent me from doing so
I have to go to work to put fuel in the van pay insurance buy food
If money was no object I would never be home
Probably living on a campsite in Spain

I wouldn't say a camper is an alter ego I don't act any different when in in the van
Or driving my car or at work or the pub
I am me, I only know how to be me nothing more
The van is part of me as its part of my life

I'm not sure how this fits in with it being a home though
Sorry :D
