Ok im reposting this from a facebook post, if you want to get in contact with Sam
Send me a pm and i will get his deatils for you!
He sounds like a great person to meet! And his van too!

Hey team! Just wanted to fill you in on what our Bedford adventure and our mission and ask a little help.

My names Sam, my dog Bo and I are traveling the country for the next two years on a mission of men's suicide prevention and mental health awareness. The way we do that is we tow around a caravan that we've built into a Barbershop, and trade haircuts and cut throats shaves for a barter. Like a little bit of food or petrol or somewhere to park the van. We're on the road for the next two years visiting Every.Single.Town in New Zealand.

We've had our ups and downs during the journey as far as the van goes but thank goodness to some wonderful people that have helped with what they can along the way.

During this time we're making a documentary about our men focused on the good things we blokes do!

I want to put out an offer to anyone that's keen on Bedfords we will call in and give ya some cuts and spin some yarns.

We also need some advice on how to either get a new gearbox for a 1.8 slant or a suibible replacement engine and drivetrain? Our reverse is non existent so probably need that at somepoint.

At the moment we're heading through Hamilton to Coromandel in the next few weeks then continuing north.

If you want to follow our adventure head over to www.facebook.com/thebarterbarber

Thanks so much for reading this post,

Happy Vanning!

Sam and Bobo
Cheers Wendy & Ray
