    daughter had a flat on her Iveco ambulance this morning , so rang breakdown and found it hadn't renewed as she'd thought. . anyway she sorted that and the tyre ,but no breakdown for 24 hrs after payment . sure enough ,5 miles from home , clutch fails , or the cable , at traffic lights, on a hill , at rush hour . quite a heavy vehicle, and some long hills , but my old sprinter did it without fuss . for those who care , nice soft woven nylon 3/4inch rope doubled and tied with bowlines . stretchy enough for pulling away without jerking and once we'd got here the knots came apart as they should. i enjoy this sort of thing
    too blessed to be stressed

    Always keep a long rope in the van when wild camping, you never know when you need it
