    As the title says 151 nights away last year split between France, Spain, Germany, Holland, Belgium and the UK, so far this year 100%.

    I am sure it will be beaten but full timers don't qualify.

    Might as well try to get our money's worth.

    We've already managed 2 nights this year but no hope of catching you up!

    What were the highlights?

    Best night and worse night?

    :xThumb::xThumb:Potential worst night was under the flight path to Dusseldorf airport but turned out OK when they stopped.

    Could also have been the night at Gouda when the French Gypsies turned up at midnight and surrounded our MH, but again turned out OK as they used the EHU and didn't start their generators.

    Can't really pick a best but being close enough to walk into Ypres for the last post at the Menin gate certainly was memorable.

    Or should it be New Years Eve with Funsters :xThumb::xrofl:

    One of my very many New Year resolutions is to write down everywhere we go and stay, been meaning to do this for ages. In fact I have started at least twice but keep loosing the notebooks..

    I'd then be able to count the nights.

    107 last year not great for us our best year was over 230. Need to try harder this year although nothing planned and elderly relatives make planning difficult.

    I have just counted up our nights in the van total for 2014.
    Pamelaaar and I totaled 206nights.
    We are hoping to top that in 2015.
