    :)Well, we just got back from our first overnight stay in the Hymer and I have to say, that apart from the torrential rain keeping us awake for most of the night, all was well (y).
    We went to the Royal Bath and West show and just stayed for the final night.

    Nothing leaked, thank heavens, and we had a very nice time away from the children (the reasoning behind buying Henrietta Hymer in the first place).

    The 'welcoming' committee for the camping/caravanning area were really lovely, very reassuring for novices like us and the ground was pretty good as well.

    One thing I did notice was that other Motorhomers all waved as we drove past them, something that I haven't encountered since my VW Beetle driving days - all in all it was a very Grand couple of Days out
    :love:.

    I hope that this will be just the first of many happy stopovers.
    It does sound as if the rain is very close when you are inside your van but unless something catastrophic occurred, it should be very warm and dry inside your van, just one of the many pleasures of Motorhoming. Then if the rain does not go away, just drive to a drier place.

    First of many we hope. We also use ours as a getaway from the children, who have left home but keep tracking us down, wherever we are, shhhh mums the word sneak off again

    One of my favourite places in the rain, tucked up in bed in the Mo Ho with the rain pitter pattering on the roof, is it just me?
    Oh as long as we are on hard standing not on grass

    Need to build those muscles in your waving arm plent of that required over the coming months

    Enjoy your new freedom and lifestyle

    I normally love going to sleep when its raining, but it wasn't a gentle rainstorm, it sounded like a small herd of tiny elephants tap dancing over my head for about 7 hours :D.

    All good fun though .

    Enjoy your new chapter, a friend tells me life is like an onion with lots of layers, it's, true in my case. Good luck.
