Vanatron: Camper In Disguise! Day: 2

Well. That didn’t go entirely to plan.

Yesterday’s moderately storming start stuttered to a crawl today. Did a lot of fruitless searching for a replacement passenger seat to swap out for the current bench. Some actual work *horrors* got in the way in the morning, and this afternoon I realised that the van was still pretty filthy and covered in various stuck on bits of sealant, weird velcro etc etc.  After cleaning it all up and removing clingons, I got the thermoliner out and set to trying to make it fit.

I tried a bit more.

Some wrestling occurred.





Lightbulb moment: “it is cold”.

Warmed up thermoliner. Thermoliner stopped doing a fantastic impression of an overtired child resisting pajamas and became a little more pliable. Decided to come back to this job on a warmer day.

Cooked a chicken. Spent the rest of the evening telling Fey the Chicken Smell Drunk Lunatic that it is ‘Not Done’ ‘Not for You’ ‘All Gone’. She didn’t believe me.

Eclecticism is the light and the way. Parsnips are fantastic. Celeriac is evil.
