Our van is called YEDI ADALARI. It's a long story as to how it got its name.

It goes back to 1988 when my wife and I went sailing in Turkey. In the Gulf of Gokova we found an idyllic anchorage where we were blissly alone amongst tall pines anchored behind seven islands in calm, turquoise water, marked on the chart as Yedi Adalari (Yedi means 7 and Adalari means Islands in Turkish).

We spent some time securing our yacht for the night with mooring lines attached to the trees to ensure a good night's rest. As the sun was setting another yacht of drunk folk from England arrived and having looked at our boat, decided they would anchor nearby (despite 200,000 sw km of ocean to choose from.

(They later said they saw our SA ensign in our rigging and said "If they're from South Africa, they will know how to sail. Let's copy them")

They were not very good sailors (and made a huge amount of noise) and later that evening when the wind turned, their yacht almost ended up on the rocks, which meant South Africa to the rescue. They were very grateful, but their inconsiderate barging in onto our quiet and peaceful spot was never forgotten and has become a long standing family joke. The skipper of the English yact was wearing a safari suit with a pith helmet!

Much the same happens when we go camping. More often than not, a new camper will arrive and despite having the entire park to choose a site, invariably they will set up very close to us. We seem to have a magnetic attraction for others wanting to camp near us. My wife and I give each other a knowing look and we say "Yedi Adalari!"

Jammer vir die Engels...... Dit sou moeilik vertaal het.

We normally like to pick the quiet spots as well. Maybe thats why the other people would like to camp next to us.

Problem is that they not always know what quiet means.

 

Then I must also say I lost part of my hearing and due to that can be a bit load when I chat.  Telling you this helped me to make a decision.  From now on I should rather listen and kept quiet so others can enjoy there camping.

Hi There

As a avid camper having camped with a number of friends and always hired a caravan, my wife and i decided to buy our own model, a, Sprite Scout and went up to nelsprut to collect and on the way back to Cape Town, while chatting to our buddies who took the trip with us our new pride and joy was promply christened "SCOTTIE" and a name we fondly use, while talking about the caravan.

We never refer to it as our caravan its always "SCOTTIE" with its branding on the rear in similiar lettering as Scout.

Iets wat nogal interresant sal wees om te hoor is wat is die naam van jou woonwa en hoekom noem jy hom so. Ek praat nou nie van Swing, Swift, Penta of so nie, ek praat van, kom ons noem dit die troetel naampie. My Penta se naam is HAKUNA MATATA(No Worries). So vernoem na Phumba en Timone se liedjie wat hulle sing in die film "Lion King". As ek mos met vakansie gaan het ek "no worries". Links agter op die karavaan is die naam opgesit en net bo dit lyn sketse van Phumba en Timone. Oor die algemeen praat ons in die gesin maar van die "Van". Leon

my camper was groen toe noem ons hom greamsoda
