Both Stranded in forest of Dean with a failed van gearbox. Have no money, massively in debt, need to feed dogs. And get back to Devon.

by Chrostopher in Exbourne, England, United Kingdom

So the best way to explain would be that in between everything going wrong, we both live in my van on a farm near Okehampton, ive been there for two years, and my partner moved in a couple months ago. After being stranded in the south of France because the suspension failed, I took the van for an mot only to discover it would have needed too much work for it to pass. It was so bad that I could not leave the farm. We bought a horse box paid for in installments with the intention of converting to live in, however due to constant disaster strike there has been a lack of funding for the project and instead we are constantly struggling to scrape together pennies to survive. The van I bought to  use for work ended up sucking in flood water in a very shallow flood and it destroyed the engine. The one I bought after that had its cambelt snap. And this one had its driveshaft fail on us last night miles fron anywhere. We managed to make up a bed here in the back. But now we haven't a clue what to do as we have no money at all! Its just one thing after another, work redicliously hard trying to get somewhere but it always comes to nothing. Debts have racked up due to various reasons, usually being that everything falls apart before we have a chance to become established, meaning things like insurances get cancelled etc. We need to feed two puppie dogs and usually that involves not eating ourselves. Can't pay rent. Need to get to Devon. ASAP. Using this website was a last resort, but we both came to the conclusion that if we had a lump sum we could get the van sorted, pay off our debts and fund the horse box broject, it would just give us something to start with as oppose to nothing. We just so desperately want to stop living on the edge, but can't seem to get away from it!
