Kitchen Unit Prototype

The kitchen unit prototype is almost complete. I’ve built a full-scale replica from cardboard, to make sure all of the elements fit together perfectly – including the sink, tap, fridge, cookers, shower, and all of the wiring and electronics. I’m using two cheapo gas cookers (about a tenner each) rather than an ultra-expensive SMEV, or similar. This way, I have two cookers at the ready when I need them; If one fails, I have a backup; and I save a wad of cash. I’ve cooked on these things a lot, and they are really good. The fridge is an electric coolbox I’ve had for years, and the sink is a 28cm round stainless steel model, sourced on eBay for under £20. The shower is a small hand sprayer, perfect for rinsing wetsuits or blasting mud off of hiking boots. Tap should arrive next week, and once the water tanks are in place, I can try fitting it in the van.

New Colours

Our RV was a colourful green, yellow and white scheme. It had a clean and fresh vibe, which suited our environment and our mood at the time. For our VW, we’ve chosen a palette with more attitude. Reds, greys and white, with an industrial and military vibe. We’ve taken inspiration from the Victorinox Special Edition Airstream trailer, with a splash of surf style added for good measure.

Lost and Found

Well, we had an eventful weekend.

Early Friday morning, our new van was stolen from the body repair garage. After the usual reports to the police and insurance companies, the van was later discovered not far from the garage. There seems to be a bit of damage, but police forensics are holding on to our rig for now until it’s fingerprinted, we’ll know the full extent of the damage towards the end of the week.

Everything happens for a reason. Not sure what, but we’re just glad the van has been recovered, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed for as little damage as possible. Hopefully we’ll be able to collect it soon.

No Destination Reboot

Chilling in the shade, somewhere in the North Carolina mountains.

What? You thought selling the RV and moving to another country means we won’t be NoDes’ing around the world? NEVER! We’re gearing up to relaunch No Destination, in a whole new country, with a whole new vehicle, still with no destination…

The site will look a bit all-over the place until we’ve finished programming and designing the new look, so bear with us, we’ll be blogging and posting, renovating and fixing as soon as we can.
