    suzuki jimny

    Thanks for all the input. Just confirmed what I thought. Will probably stick to the berlingo as the other options are more expensive than I can currently go to. The berlingo is ok without towing but struggles with a 750kg caravan. I just love the look of the jimny and its reputed reliability...

    My Dad's in hospital

    Stay with it and love the Dad you always knew. Ignore the comments and lack of recognition that you see at the moment. The illness makes the comments and not the Dad you knew. He still needs all the love and affection as before but may not be responding in a way that you undersatand. Difficult...

    'interesting' definition of bushcraft

    perhaps the loss of humour is weather derived due to too much time on their hands. Roll on spring so we can forget who we are and where we come from and enjoy our craft under whatever name or desguise it comes under. take no offense from this as none intended:):canoe:
