The show season is now well underway and this month Simon has been to two shows for us. His first was an annual visit to the Scrumpy Dubbers’ show, Dubs At The Mill in Somerset. His second was a new show, Dubs In Wonderland run by the Dubs Collective at Himley Hall. Alan reflects on Vanwest in his column and David similarly looks back at Stanford Hall in his. Anne has been out and about too, in less than pleasant weather last year she paid a visit to Anglesey for the Race Of Remembrance in a follow up to her Mission Motorsport piece from a couple of months ago. Even Harriet and Dan went to a meet, rather more exotically and in much better weather, theirs was the ‘Vanlife Diaries…

Mongolia Bound Ulaanbaatar Or Bust A year ago Ian Pegram and his wife, Juliet Sheppard, hatched what he defines as “a mad plan”. Described as ‘Two of Bournemouth’s most adventurous senior citizens’, they are off on the fund-raising adventure of a life time, driving overland one third of the way around the world. They are leaving the UK in mid-July to drive the estimated 9, 000 miles to the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar, and back. This will take some nine weeks, give or take a border crossing or two! Better known as “Team 140”.(their combined ages), they originally planned to parallel the recognised ‘Mongol Rally’, but eventually decided to go it alone. Their trusty steed is a converted T6 and their aim is to raise money for two charities, Help for Heroes and…

In addition to their highly stressed day jobs, Jacquie Edwards and Adam Bryan are parents to Layla, Jasmine and Fred. They also run a very successful enterprise called Jeds Peds, who supply electric guitar aficionados with effects pedal kits, or the components to build your own. They started the business in 2013 and it’s gone from strength to strength with new products being added along the way and has recently expanded to see them buying the stock of a former competitor. All this work and no play meant the couple knew they needed a means of escape, and as Adam isn’t at all keen on flying it meant that any holiday would need to be taken via earth-bound means. Under the van there is an LPG tank that not only supplies…
