Not sure if it was on ASOF that I recently saw a discussion about cleaning vans on site.

However I've just seen something that takes the biscuit. We're pitched on Troutbeck Head CC site at present and across from us there was an unbranded poptop VW T5 PVC. It's sheeting down with rain and forecast to last all day with bouts of lightning. Movement outside the T5 caught my eye and there's a chap wiping around the front of the van, in the rain, wearing just a fleece and a pair of shorts. He's now got in the van, presumably soaking wet and driven off on roads that are awash. No I couldn't think why he bothered either.

It could have been me! (but it wasn't).

If I've done a long leg the previous day in warm, sunny weather, both the windscreen and headlights are likely to be covered in squashed insects, so if it's raining before I set out, that's an ideal time to wipe away the insect juice on the lights - when it's been softened up by the rain.

If the bugs on the screen are really baked on I might wipe the screen over as well rather than relying on the wipers - though generally they will wipe the crud away eventually.

I can understand that if it's a shower, or the rain has softened stuff and then stopped. But this was shortly after the rain started and it's forecast to last to nightfall. So wherever he's gone he'll be plastering the van an route.
