After a couple of months of the CampervanCulture.com Westy Syncro being out of action due to yet another shagged gear box we had a stoke of luck. It was expensive luck but we did find a rebuilt Syncro gear box for sale at Busfest a couple of weeks back. Because of all the support we get from you guys and girls who support us from buying from the CampervanCulture.com web shop and at the shows we trade at we had enough to buy the gear box. Believe it or not at £3000 this gear box was a bargain! and not only has this put us back on the road but we should be able to get the old one rebuilt so we have a spare… With a spare rebuilt Syncro gearbox sat on a pallet we can really travel with a bit more confidence knowing via our UPS or DHL shipping accounts we can receive a new gearbox anywhere in the world in under 5 days!
We realise that all of you recognise CampervanCulture.com as not just another internet web shop and totally appreciate your support. With the support you give us it means we are completely self funded and it allows us to give something back via the short films we make so you can watch them any time you like and as often as you want for free.
This trip is just a short one. A quick weekend away into the Surrey Hills, we really hope you enjoy being with us in the passenger seat or virtually walking side by side with us on our hike.
This short video is more than us just getting out for a weekend exploring, it has been a bit of an experiment. Been thinking for ages just how viable daily or 3 times weekly video logs would be on our next trip. I like just picking up the filming gear and making a film series for you all for when we get back but…. let’s say… just for fun it would be possible to put together a series of regular video logs from out on the road and launch them every couple of days. It would be a lot of work but just as a tester this short film was put together to see what could be done which just an hour and a half of editing as a tester to see what is in reach..
