    We're away to a CL near Woodhall Spa - really looking forward to it, as not doing much vanning this year due to family commitments.

  2. Janet added a post in a topic whats your plans for next year   

    We've only managed 6 nights this year - two of those were at New Year, and the other four were at Easter when we met up with the Bretts (Anne Marie and Tim) who have now moved into statics near Dunbar on the East Coast of Scotland.     Our next trip is 2 nights this weekend at York and then none until May Day weekend.    Our total will definitely be low this year but working on it all the time.

    I believe that many sites charge for dogs to discourage you from bringing them without actually advertising as no dogs!

    We're off a cruise in February to celebrate our Silver Wedding (which is actually in April).   Hopefully we'll see the Northern Lights as we're cruising Norway, having a night in a Sami Tent and dog sledding - all very exciting.  
    Caravanning wise, we've booked the bank holidays and a week in Pickering in August, but nothing much so far, as Jason has just started a new job after being unemployed for a time and hasn't got the holidays he had!   Also our youngest is 21 in May and our eldest is getting married in October, so all in all it's a busy year and I fear this will impact on the 'vanning .  
    The following year, all being well, we're going to go to Germany with the van.   Would have preferred Spain but feel you need 3 weeks at least to do Spain with the travel and ferry crossings etc and we only get 2 at a push.

    The last time I was at Huttoft, the height barrier had been rammed into thus allowing oversized vehicles to enter the car park. There were many of them, so many in fact, that cars couldn't actually get in!

    Fao Artistsrifles and Stewart Dalzell
    Have you both recently been in Belgium. Only ask as we're on our way bome but whilst looking round cemetaries near Ypres I'm sure i saw bith your names in the visitor books! And to be honest you both have unusual surnames. If so what a small world and a shame we didnt see each other. Hope you had a lovely time - we did

    Love it at Drummhor - we usually go for New Year.


    Please add 2 more nights for us in Pickering for the 60's weekend. Not quite a washout, but very cold and wet on Sunday!

  14. Janet added a post in a topic Not sure how I feel on this one.   

    If you've needed to ask, then you don't really want it!

    I would wait for a new one - any damage could have been done. We had a van stolen which we were living in following the 2007 floods - our whole world was inside and it was devastating. We went to see it upon recovery and I wouldn't want it back knowing they'd touched our things. I'm sure one can be sourced sooner for you given the circumstances, in fact the manufacturer may pull out the stops to help if asked.

  15. Janet added a post in a topic Anybody booked away this weekend?   

    Yes, away in North Yorkshire for a 60's weekend. An outside event so could be wet. Wind is generally the only thing that would put us off, but then again, we rarely cancel - think only once in the last 10 years or so

    Same here Bob - after our previous experience with a low towball limit we wouldn't consider one without 100kg (our van is 1580kg). Even with good loading we can't get the noseweight down below 85kg.

    Lovely cars though, would love one - might have to have a Rexton instead when it's time to change

    10 nights for us at a CL near Pickering. I think this takes our total this year to 18. A lovely week recharging the batteries even if the weather was a bit dodgy at times.

  24. Janet added a post in a topic Aldi caravan stuff in store TODAY   


    I was there at 8am on my way to work and bought the toilet chemicals in bulk. We really like the Blue Diamond stuff, it works really well without having to use loads and has a nice 'perfume'. My preferred choice not incuding cost would be Elsan but a bit pricey usually unless you can find a good offer.

    The TV's and Sat Navs were flying off the shelves at 8am when I was there.

    Yep, stocked up on toilet chemicals this morning at 8am on my way to work. The tv's and sat navs seemed very popular too.
