I envision a great and unforgettable holiday. Make lots of movies and pictures with stories to them. Have a nice daily write up with all your thoughts. That way you will travel again and again the same places. You will not have any trouble with the car, I feel. Use some good additive, some Malvellous Mistery oil is good in the oil and the gas for awhile. That petrol (gas) heater is using quite a bit of fuel and can mess up your mileage/gallon. Good sleeping bags help lots. Down South it will be fine, of course. Make use of the hiding places in the van for the valuables. I would use a large size chain between the steering wheel and the pedals, with a huge padlock. You can't loose the car! The paging security device, that can notify you if someone has opened the door of the car, can be a help. With good company, it is a fantastic time. Take care and take your time.
