It's a project that we have always talked about, but we finally took the leap this spring and invested in a van and the rest has been history. It has been such a learning curve to get to grips with all of the electrics and preparation that needs to happen to make this old work van into a livable space. The sense of achievement that has come from completing job after job has been amazing – especially fitting the windows. I am so excited to get it finished, so we can head into the mountains, and maybe even out to Europe for when the racing season has finished up.
It has become mine and Callum’s life outside of anything else that we do – lunches and dinners are spent watching YouTube videos or working out what is going into the next hardware order. Callum has been able to put in so much work whilst I have been on camp fitting solar panels etc., so it is always the first thing that gets talked about when I call home.
