    Zombies can't undo zips so you are safe in a tent. Unless it's an argos tent, then the zip is not zombie finger proof.


    The trouble is, you think you have time.

    Possibly, but its more that people who are genuinely afraid of this sort of thing generally prepare for taking to the hills at a moments notice, and invest heavily in tents, special firelighters, spades, and things that boyscouts use for taking stones out of horses hooves. How any of this is supposed to help I'm not sure, but it makes them feel better, plus we get to sell them all kinds of shit!
    Yawn I'm so tired with this big bag of coal on my head...

    The same kind of people who think that The Walking Dead is a reality series.

    Seriously though its amazing the amount of shit that is for sale on the interweb with descriptions relating to zombie attack...

    But the zombie only thinks of the zip, they ignore the big gaping hole and try to undo the zip.
    Its a closely guarded secret in the zombie survival community that if you want to zombie proof a room you just tape a length of zip across an open doorway. Theyll spend hours trying to undo it giving you plenty of opportunity to scoop out their brains with a melon baller.

    You're all insane.

    Anyway. If we can get back to the serious business of van conversion?

    I was having a bit of a think about how to get some high current cable from the alternator to the house battery (which currently is residing at the back of the van pending some metalwork to make a battery carrier underneath), when I discovered the (now mostly removed) tail lift still has the electrics in place - including a 10mm +12 cable from the starter battery to right next to where the house battery is living. Result! So now (until I get the solar panels on) I have a split charge system (2.50 for a 40A relay, running off a defunct cargo light switch on the dash)

    Shakedown trip

    Had a weekend away in the van, Uffington and Stonehenge.
    *** nothing broke!!! ***
    So that's good.

    Claydon Locks:


    Uffington car park - decided to put some steps together as I was sick of almost-falling-off the step ladder...
    (No, I have no idea why the image is rotated...!?!?!)




    And Stonehenge drove road:


    Now have a month before the next outing, in which it will be solar panels and cupboards!
