Over the years I have had many "overnights" in lay-bys, we have our favourites, BUT only for one night En route to ????. I try to avoid the obvious ones, and the best ones are on bypassed roads where the "old" road has been downgraded. these are often known to the older generation of truckers and are quiet(er),as they are unused due to the old 7.5t restriction on Truck use, (dont apply to me m'lud as I'm a motorcaravan?!!).
The worst bit is that Most of the well used ones smell like S***H*****!!!!
Mind you do get some "funny" things going on, eg one I know is nowadays a regular haunt of "boy meets boy for good time" Nudge nudge, wink wink!!!.
and my mate recently spent the night on one (old) layby only to be knocked up and "propositioned"
by what looked like a 13 year old girl!!! good job his missus was in the van with him!!!, she told her where to go.
. And there is one (allegedly) near newcastle which is used for the "sport" of "doging" (No idea what that is!!!)
