This was the view from the windows of my bus this morning
Are you on the black mountain or have you moved on from Wales ?
think thats the black mountains and i,ve parked in the layby where the stones are now.
nice place to be.
Yes fabulous views but where in Wales?????
Upper Rhonda Valley, not far from Ferndale.

Looks pretty obvious they don't want you there.
bit more permanent than 'KEEP OFF THE GRASS' signs.
lay-by is open though. :thumb:
Yes I know that road, lovely spots but no signal if I park anywhere along there.
I know where that is Rob... I'll be there in five minutes... have to use my genny all night though... you won't mind will you?

the hills are alive with the sound of music .

BRILLIANT idea Alan... and in a break I will play you a tune on my South African horn thingie...

Ha! I'm ahead of the game lads, had already moved to a new park-up during the day before I posted those pics, so gennies, harmoncas and vuvuzalas won't disturb me :Rofl1:
thats cheating .we will get you one day .blast you with the solar panels. they are deafening. see you somewhere .
and geoff i,ll get to mee you one day i looked in san juan de terreros last winter but couldnt find you.
also jj missed you in vila real by a day so doug told me. hope to see you all somewhere .cheers alan,back to grass cutting.
Not too far from there today.....here's a shot near Nant-Ddu, about 25km north, pointing back towards where you were, roughly.
As you can see, the weather's taken a turn for the worse!
A470 in the middle, and I was parked on the A4059, so not quite as peaceful either. Particularly when this guy turned up with his mate - they were pretending to discuss their journey, but let's be honest....they know a performance machine when they see one :Laughing:
I've driven on the A4059 over the mountains there many times, spectacular views If you take the wee single track turn on the right over on the other side of the mountains there are some nice parkups to be found away from the fast traffic, I love it round there, but sadly I don't get signal for internet in the mountains.
