    My best tip, for anyone new that asks, is to tell them, Before starting a trip, if it's meant to be full, fill it. It is meant to be empty, empty it! That way what ever happens you'll be able to cope with it.

    Our inaugural abroad we arrived back at the French port thinking that we only had a short trip from Plymouth to Brixham about and hour when we landed. Consequently full loo, little or nothing in the fridge, no water and a full grey tank. Lyn Me and three (only three in those days) little boys

    "Sorry mate, ferries been delayed overnight, park up there if you like, we give you a knock in the morning:xeek:

    The pitter patter sound of rain on the roof of the motorhome, hot cuppa in hands watching the world go by waiting for the sunshine. Perfect.

    Showing or being showing something new about motorhoming you never knew. Sorted

    All of these things, parked up somewhere with a fantastic view knowing you have everything you need with you. No timetable, no need to rush off anywhere, somewhere new to explore.

    Arr bless, so easily pleased! You men are such simple creatures. :RollEyes:

    And from a women's perspective it would include -
    Has everyone been fed?
    Have I got enough food to feed everyone again?
    Is all the laundry dry?
    When the hell am I going to do that huge pile of dirty laundry?
    Will the sunshine long enough to dry it?
    How many weeks have those bed clothes been on?
    Do we all smell?
    HAVE I GOT ENOUGH WINE????
