Off to Ebury C.C. tomorrow for four nights as a shake down for our impending long trip to Europe next month.
I think I've checked, stored up and cleaned and lubricated everthing I can think of, but there's nothing like living in the Moho for a few days to check that everything is tikkety-boo.
So, if any one else is going to be at Ebury near Shrewsbury, then look out for a Chausson Welcome and a large black fun-filled dog.

With its owner pushing the van that he forgot to fill with diesel.

Seriously at a recent event I attended after the winter, several leisure batteries had problems. Post winter storage perhaps? Still worth keeping an eye on.

Just had our first outing of the year at a pub campsite in Wiltshire. Everything in the van worked fine but the overnight deluge resulted in the already wet ground being saturated, meaning we got stuck. Fortunately we had the tow rope and there was a friendly 4x4 camper who gave us a pull.  The best laid plans etc .......

As we do most of our travelling in winter, spring outings always seem so easy.
Last weekend we went go stay with some friends on our first non snow filled trip this year. They warned us the ground was muddy so we left the winter tyres on. No problem !

Now, must get them changed to summer tyres as its 26 degrees here :-)

This is the first winter for ages that we haven't been away.
The foul weather and advancing years meant that discretion was the better part of valour.
Maybe this is a result of climate change, but I certainty don't enjoy being away in wet,windy and cold weather.
Love a good downpour, thunderstorm or heavy fall of snow but wet and cold doesn't do anything for me.
At least being home I was able to catch up on house chores.... It's been a long time!
