    Just got settled at Keats farm Folkestone prior to going to France tomorrow ,the site is only a quarter full so at least 50 pitches available when a car and caravan stops right in front of my van and the couple in it start staring at us then bear in mind we are well into our second bottle of wine they then get out and start pointing at us , we where find this quite amusing this caused the lady caravaner to storm of to the wardens office . The warden came back all sheepish and asked us to move to another pitch as this couple wanted this pitch now I know I should have told him no but he was a nice bloke and we are going early ,so we moved to the next pitch and the couple proceed to amuse us for the next hour with there comical attempts to get their caravan set up which the nice warden then had to come and help them . Would any other of funsters have moved ?

    No, not unless they had booked that pitch, or came and asked nicely. Did they say thank you.

    Something to do with sex and travel comes to mind, unless the guy had written evidence from the site operator that they had a pre booked reservation for that particular pitch.

    No, especially not after having a drink - think I'd have just waved my glass at them and then refilled.
    We've just enjoyed Eskdale site and back home today, no caravans allowed !!
    Everybody was really friendly and I didn't realise the size of some of these tents you can get these days.

    Not a chance, even with the pressure from the Mrs being applied!

    (The Mrs just laughed when I showed her this! I take that as permission to post the response!)

    What was so "special" about that particular pitch?
    Hope you make plenty of noise when you set off..........
    Cheers, Dave(y)

    I think it's very petty on their part if the site is not full, was there anything particularly special about that pitch?

    That's what I thought you all might say and no the pitch was not reserved as the very same warden showed me onto the pitch. They have spoken to us or thanked us there's nowt as queer as folk , not a problem or a big thing just thought it was funny (y)

    Then that is pathetic on their part, it does make you wonder what goes on inside some people's minds.
    Enjoy your trip though Howard, have a good one (y)

    No but if they had asked I would have told them we were going in the morning and they could move to the pitch once we have left.

    After the second bottle of wine I would have told them to Foxtrot Oscar - Can't drive over the limit and the warden should not have allowed you to drive.

    No.
    If that particular pitch had been booked and paid for in advance the warden wouldn't, or shouldn't, have given you the pitch in the first place.

    Edit:
    Don't think it's a caravanner thing as such, just strange people who really own the world.

    If you had damaged your MH in the 7/8 metre move and or the Police were called you would have no insurance cover and losted your licence. DIC of a vehicle, simples, I stated "joking aside" I would have said NO sorry.

    We would not have moved....... If the warden showed us where to pitch then good enough for us. Someone else's problem - theirs!!
