It almost seems a bit too late now to wish everyone a Happy New Year, but nevertheless, wherever your reading this from, I hope you all have a great 2015 with lots to look forward to and enjoy! After a few days of house bound captivity, I really needed to take off for a run in the camper come New Years Day and get some fresh air into my system, so where better to head off to than the Old Lighthouse in Dungeness in Kent!

I always find the barren landscape, abandoned machinery and simple architecture fascinating and inspiring at the same time, although I do get that for some it might be a bit of a Marmite location! However, I love it and find it a great place to just wander around on the beach and really just clear my head.

I should really start a bit of a 2015 ‘to-do list’ as it is looking to be a busy year with a few road trips in the pipeline such as a possible winter Architectural solo tour of France/Spain, then hooking up with my friend Ollie again for a repeat trip to ‘Freddy Files’ event in Ninove in Belgium again. Brighton Breeze will be another event I’ll want to be going to again later on in the year as well!
Then we’ve also got tickets to see Seasick Steve in the UK…
…and I have booked a ferry for a long-awaited road trip holiday to Ireland with my wife to see the Foo Fighters at Slane Castle which I’m really looking forward to, we’ve been meaning to visit Ireland for years, so glad we’ve finally got that booked in!
Then there are various things I need to finish off with the camper like the Canterbury Pitt table renovation! Yes, that is still in progress, but oh so very nearly there now! The longest table renovation in history!

There are a few little upgrades and mods that I want to get done to the camper this year…
eroded steel rivet detail
…like getting some of this years Christmas VW camper related ‘presents’ fitted and working!
amazing surface texture
Then there are some stock VW upgrades that I want to get fitted to improve the overall driving experience of the Splitty…
rusted metal and weathered timber
…plus maybe a few other non-stock items to help personalise my VW Canterbury Pitt camper? Yep, it’s going to be a busy and fun 2015!
Then I might also get a chance to try to design a few more vintage VW related t-shirts to go along with the current VW Camper/Jack Kerouac inspired range?
