Might buy a camper van to live in for a year or so once campsites start opening up. Don’t have to go abroad, can travel round quite cheaply, seems fun.

Always fancied this. A banger talbot version though, not the £60k plus jobs!  ‘Posh’ wild camping and fishing on the north coast of Scotland.

There's Japanese ones like the Nissan Elgrand, come in from 10-20k. Saw a really nice one for £15k.

I've been wanting one since my parents bought one in NZ. Borrowed it off them every time I go out there and absolutely love the camper van life. Something very nice about the routines you get into; converting the van into the leisure mode when you get somewhere, converting it into sleeper mode before bed, then back into driving mode when you set off the next day. Spending each day at a different campsite and exploring the local area, ah its class man. I'd love to be able to afford one, especially living in scotland.

I've always wanted a camper van but the wife is too much a pain in the arse to go in one.  Reckons its too small.  The only option she would consider would be a static caravan but she would want on of the 100k ones the self-entitled bitch.

Stuck in a tiny enclosed space with your wife and kids.

Sounds like heaven.

Probably only take him 6 months before he's got enough metal to make a campervan out of tuna cans.

Seriously considering a BOOX Note2, primarily for PDF reading. The Kindle that I have doesn't really cut it. The Ipad's screen is not suitable for reading.

Anyone got any experience with these things? It seems expensive for simple PDF reading but it does look ideal.

I know man, that's why I haven't bit the bullet yet.

It's basically the same price as a new iPad Air but it's so much more useful for my purposes.

I love E-ink for reading plain text, but much prefer my iPad for working with PDFs.

Usually 20-50 pages, quite figure heavy.  Lack of colour is a dealbreaker for me, but honestly never had an issue using an iPad to read or annotate.

I find the iPad reflective screen to be a real strain on the eyes hence why I'm looking at this

I've got an outside one I built and its truly awesome and really helped during lockdown but an inside bar will be just as awesome.  Do it

I want a tv for my new outside office/man cave does anyone have any recommendations.  I'm not bothered about it being too fancy so might just get something like this.

Bit the bullet and got the ascot with all the extras including back bar £700 including installation and delivery, looks like the Blade beer dispenser I want could cost another £500 though.

I've got a perfectdraft and it's outstanding and cost around 200. 11 pints or so per keg which is great, it last 30 days once tapped but that's less than a weekend for me normally.

Looks great though good choice and you will enjoy it.
