This is a fairly common problem with vans of a certain age....
Locking wheel bolts BUT no key! This can be because of loss or as in this case because when it was serviced last, the mobile engineer didn't return the key to the customer.
The only option with some bolts is to knock them off as spare 'keys' aren't available.
So this one took an hour of hard work to remove. Which means they do their job - although we've never heard of any cases of wheels being stolen from caravans.
Moral of the story is not to loose the key or ask us to remove the locking bolts during a service to prevent this happening to you (replacement standard AL-KO nuts are £4.50 each).
Well, now we have a blog, we had better make a post...
Well lets explain the main header photos used on this page and the main Home page.
Let's start with this page.... The photo above was taken at Bleak House Farm CL at York - a fantastic CL within walking distance of the centre of York at only £7/night. There are no facilities, but what a fantastic location at a great price! Don't be put off by the pot-holed approach lane or the adjacent 'yard' - it's very quiet.
OK, let's now take a look at our main Home page image...
The above image was taken at Camping Attermenzen, Randa near Zermatt in Switzerland, during November 2015, after an overnight 4" 'dusting' of snow!
-14C is quite normal at night at these altitudes (1800m) - even in Autumn!
Speaking of snow - woke up this morning to this....
We are obviously not going to be busy today!
