I wondered why the bank account is so low - I shall ask for a refund.

My biggest outlay in 2013 was the cost in car fuel travelling to and from the launch site, not to mention the time spent on the road.
However i will rectify that irritation this year as i plan to site my caravan near to my chosen launch site, therefore cutting my fuel outlay considerably.
The cost of siting my caravan will be short change in comparison, so personally i'm looking forward to clocking up more NM in 2014 than 2013
