Okay so Bonesie and Grumpy have come out of the closet,
Spanner Juggler gets a pass as a) he mainly left his in one place and b) saw the light and sold it
How many more?

I’m going to start marketing a range of caravan owner dolls, they will be called Marjorie and Ernest (as all caravan owners are), they will be retired, dressed in cardigans and have accessories like a small yappy dog, a daily paper and will smell faintly of farts
Press the button on the back and they’ll say;
“Don’t worry about the tailback behind us dear we are doing 25mph”
“Bloody cyclists”

You’ll need to provide your own pins to stick in them

Of course we'll hate you! .... you've gone over to the Dark Side! ...... all it needs now is a pic showing a well stocked bike-rack fitted to the back and you can expect your windows put in!! rofl

There's a heirachy of these things ...

A camper van is cool .... lumps you in with surfer-dudes, the racer-tribe and the quirkily free-spirited

A motorhome is less cool .... you may once have been one of the above, but you now have a sizeable waist and bank-balance to match.

A caravan is not cool .... you vaguely want travel and adventure but only if it doesn't mean leaving the cafeterie and electric blanket at home

Ps, .... if your caravan is bow-top and pulled by a horse you don't need to worry about stuff like 'cool'

I started with tenting, then a camper van then two motorhomes but now I fly all around the world. Which one would the lefties hate most??? By the by, a little bird tells me that Rich has secretly built a 5 van site because he loves grockles so much.


Here for a good time not a long time!!

You will require a holiday when you get back from your caravan vacation, stressed, huge increase in travel costs, bored after sitting in a confined spaced in the middle of a muddy field, waiting for the rain to stop for your stressful drive home. swear Once your home, spend two days washing and cleaning, park it, try the same again in 3 months, then put it up for sale. doh Then do the economics and realize you made a loss. mad2 Then take a break in a 5 star resort and smile. happy3

Enjoy the lesson

I have been looking to return to caravaning. My last caravan had gas mantles, a foot warter pump and a bucket. I am amazed at what you can buy second hand (pre loved!). All mod cons for a modest outlay. As for farty old people, do they drive Morgans.

The other side of the coin (if you leave your van on a seasonal pitch) is imagine the wonderful night drives, hood down and no luggage to carry because everything is in caravan. Drive from Leicester to Cotswolds, roads deserted looking at the stars and when you get there a bacon butty and mug of tea before bed. Wonderful, had many night trips down to the caravan like that. Having a built in freezer helped as the Memsahib filled it up as she was still working back then so I had many nights ‘Stag’.

Watch out for Rich+8 throwing bricks at you.

I'm never given to violence, I wish you a great season of touring Bonesie the sites are pretty full at the moment around here for the reasons you have already said and pre booking essential.
Everyone needs a break of some sort after the crap that's been shared with us this year guru

p.s. I don't encounter caravans or motorhomes on my "summer" routes as they are unnavigable for them wink

p.p.s. Reg I've applied for a 500 caravan site just outside Wroxham innocent with free hook ups at your place...

p.p.p.s. Bob, good luck with the sale sorry you have to sell it but this is the best of times for the market.

Excellent. We are stopping at a place called Moore View, adult only campsite so no screaming brats running around !
