    Have a few issues Sat Nav took us down a road 6 foot 6 inch restrictions had to do a three point turn in a lane 8pm Friday night!
    Need to reset Sat Nav as was set on shortest route !
    Then got stuck in the mud a Waldergraves Pulled us out Saturday morning parked at top of field in dryer spot!
    Due to work we could not leave earlier hence could not see allocated spot was very damp.
    The van worked perfectly all weekend even got TV pictures and saw Wales loose yet again :BigGrin: (they don't know how to beat the Wallabies!).
    Think our toilet seal might need changing as leaked a bit when emptying.
    On way back Sat Nav took us down some very tight lanes again touched a few branches few scratch marks.
    I few drivers were not very helpful giving way:Confused: and one went for a overtake round a bend!
    Don't know if this is normal as was going 40~50mph along these roads.
    I have also noticed more that on the A12 and M25 a few drivers drive in the middle lane at 50 mph I had to move out to overtake them:Eeek:
    Another good weekend away!
    Going to read up on Navsure N400i sat nav!

    The beach is great for [STRIKE]letting the dog roll in dead fish[/STRIKE] walking the dog. We could have some hard standings for next years Waldegraves meet - certainly hope so as apart from that its a good place to go.

    Edit - I don't recall Fen Farm site next door being anywhere near as muddy...... Been there a few times.
