    The very same!

    The annoying thing is that you can drive at sensible speeds while towing but most people that buy caravans only tow them occasionally so they **** themselves when they do.

    Should be a seperate driving test if you want to tow the things.

    Perhaps you could buy that pile of ---- you have posted ( I take it the price on the front is in Pennies, bargin ) you could then drive upto the big city on sunday ready for work monday and then could stay all week thus saving on travel expenses, plus you could just park it up in a layby, hire a romanian for 20p a day and turn it into a greasy spoons.

    Well done. Started a new job myself yesterday - I've setup my own business doing business and IT consultancy. Got a 2 - 3 month contract with Transport for London. It's going to be hard work but hopefully worth it as I'm working for myself I get to keep the profits rather than handing them to someone else.

    Cheers peeps. :o.k:

    It's all a bit daunting but i really needed to get out of the job i'm in.

    I know bugger all about IT though so it's gonna be tough, but financially rewarding and i don't have to work weekends any more. :arco:

    think about the wear and tear on your car saved though, wash your hands before you touch any part of yourself when you get off the train mind.

    I've got a mortgage.

    I live in a nice area in Surrey so i don't really want to move to London. My sis has lived up there for years and loves it but unless i moved within a couple miles of W1 it wouldn't be worth the move cos i'd have to spend ages on the tube anyway.

    If i start pulling in decent figures i may consider a move, i'll have to wait and see.
