Unpredictability - Good for your health

Our modern life is based on organising an environment free from the unexpected. The house needs to be as stable and reliable as possible. The job as safe as possible. Nothing should break down. Nothing but what we predict, should occur.
This is the life of the zoo animal. Let's explore the life of the Nomad. Let's live the life of the Nomad.

Absolute proof - caravan not cold

It was with great excitement that C and I opened the Christmas presents we bought for each other last night.  Yes I know, it isn't Christmas day yet but it's fun to break the rules every now and then.  I had got a Laura Ashley handbag for C and she was delighted with it.  And I too was delighted with the Samsung digital camera C got for me.  Unlike my car boot sale camera purchase - this one takes some fine photos.

I do like a gadget and more so if it is actually of use for something.  The IT Plus Weather station is a good example of a gadget that is very useful.  I have a radio sensor outside and this feeds back details about the conditions out there, and so I have some great data about the weather. It will tell me the humidity in the air and will form some sort of prediction about how the weather will turn out for the day.

This morning it is a very cold -0.2 degrees centigrade outside.  And is it the case that C and I are shivering at the edge of exposure like stranded explorers of the  North pole?  Not likely.  And here is the proof.

This photo, taken with my new Samsung camera, demonstrates that caravan life can indeed be comfortable.  The top reading is the outside temperature at -0.2 c.  The next reading is the humidity reading, which is low at 43 percent.  The next reading is the internal temperature in the caravan - and yes it is a very comfortable temperature at 22.2 c.  The next reading is today's date and the then the time.  You might notice next to the man the outline of a snowman.  Thus we have a prediction of snow today and this will be fun to be sure.  It is hard to imagine the reality of my relatives down under - whose skin would burn under the sun if it wasn't for the application of a thick sun block cream.

So the issue can be laid to rest at long last.  Caravans need not be cold in winter.

Hope you all have a great weekend.


  1. It is a popular misconception that caravans are cold at winter, our temp is the same as yours, and I would put money on it that most folks houses are colder than our caravans! If you are cold in your caravan, you are simply doing something wrong!
    Happy Xmas to you both!!! Jools and "M"

  2. And a merry Xmas to Jools and M from C and I. Will you be using your Cadac to cook xmas dinner?
