Who has read Cold Comfort Farm? Do you remember Amos Starkadder of the Quivering Bretheren going off in his Ford van.

Does anybody remember where it said he went?

"I'm going to go all about in a Ford van. Like the apostles of old, I'll go about the land." Or did he go somewhere specific?

Who knows but he must be spreading his word somewhere. Probably still in mainland Britain.He wouldn't take his Ford van abroad.
