During the fuel pump fiasco the van developed an odd fault of the check engine lights not coming on during ignition. The engine is so crude however that as long as it has live to the fuel cut solenoid and glow plugs it will run regardless. So it got me thinking!!! The car was fitted with an immobiliser back in the 2000’s. I pulled the trim panel off to find some of the most hideous wiring I’ve ever seen. Bars wired twiddled together with loose tape, no soldering, no proper connectors and to top it all off the excess wire just takes to the unit in a big messy bundle. Needles to say I removed this hideousness and tidied it all up. If it wasn’t 7 years old I’d phone up the “mechanic” that fitted it and tell them they are a disgrace and an idiot!!! I have the receipt from the previous owner. Pretty horrifying what goes on in some workshops! #toyota#toyotavan#townace#tarago#liteace#toyota4x4#camper#campervan#wiring#mechanics#campervanlife#campervandiaries#vanlife#van#retrocamper
Just got back from Joshua Tree where there is no cell service. I got a few pictures to share so saddle up. Maddie and I are waiting outside a very popular campground to snag a spot. The weather isn't too bad

The moment when 10 random people all decide to walk behind the monument you're taking a photo of 👊📸😁🏰☀️
#ditchingsuburbia...to learn to make 'good trades'. Tired of selling stuff to downsize we decided it would be more fun to give away what had left. One of those things was an inflatable kayak - which we ended giving to fellow nomad and awesome photographer @Joehendricks. In return he did a photo shoot with us and Sally. Thanks Joe!
