As the date gets closer and we are planning the big day - have any of you worthy peeps got any tips for Morrison's maiden voyage? We will pick up the van from Danbury and then head towards Portsmouth and up towards Croydon the following day. So - places for first picnic lunch, essential items to be stowed on board (that we can carry on train to Bristol) etc etc???

Hi and welcome. You must be getting excited. I'm guessing the name comes from 'Van Morrison'  Very Happy ......like it
There's a big supermarket in Portmouth. It's where the club trip to France meet. So you could take Morrison to Morrisons !!

Tea, coffee, milk and some colour coordinated mugs, top up the water tank at Danbury and enjoy the ride. Stop whenever you feel like and make yourself a cuppa.

Hi and welcome.

If you are planning on having a brew on the way back you will need a gas bottle like this (if the layout hasn't changed)....... Available at all good camping outlets.

http://gascylindersuk.co.uk/shop/index.php?_a=product&product_id=1009

If you don't want to stop to get one on the return journey, I'd take an empty flask and fill it up with boiling water at Danbury.  Smile 

When I picked Dizzy up, I couldn't understand why, when I filled up with petrol, the low fuel warning light stayed on, so it's worth knowing you have to put some fuel in the 'starter tank' on the nearside for the light to go out.

The adventure starts here.   bounce Very Happy

Ps: the starter tank needs just a very small amount, 1litre should do it, any more and you risk it overflowing and running down your paintwork.

Thank you JLS 62 - champagne on the weekend shopping list! Thanks to Beakyboy, Scooby, Dazdub and Marcus H for warm welcomes.  Thanks Tallulah and dizzy lizard for advice about starter tank (must admit we had to google that one!).  Yep kiteman and dizzy lizard - we'll need to pick up a gas cylinder at some stage for that first cup of coffee - sooner rather than later.  And TimV and HarryHornet - possibly see you at Morrisons.  Very Happy
