    I do hope this is not going to develop into freeloading tossers thread. some people use sites others don't. We are all different so live and let live or I'll set JJ on you.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Just the opposite Roger. Am a well known free loader, having wild camped all over Europe. But for the life of me I cannot understand why anyone would want to sit in there van for 3 weeks in a carpark in Benidorm, Manchester, Liverpool, London, Birmingham or any other city around the world, as they are afraid to leave it unattended just to save a few bob. Am sure even JJ would agree with that. Why would anyone want to sit in the centre of Benidorm in winter sun and not be able to even put a chair out and sit in it. Just beggars belief. Sorry if this offends those that like to wild camp, but to my mind this is the furthest you can get from wild camping. This is without doubt free-loading.

    each to their own but I agree with you there.
    I do stop overnight when travelling but always spend my time on a site when there for the winter. I can;:thumb:
    sit outside and enjoy the sun.
    put the table out and have an alfresco meal
    have BBQ with friends
    put up my awning.

    I do find it strange seeing lots of (mostly) men standing outside their M/H, arms folded, 1000 metre stare!! Are they really enjoying themselves:Eeek:

    Who knows, who cares :Smile:
    As long as they are not bothering others..

    Here at home I usually wake up, turn on the 'puter, and while its booting Go out in the square and sit on one of the picnic tables, having a smoke and watching the world go by..

    To others I am switched off and staring at nowt.. but I am chilling* and getting my head right for the day ahead ( *and at this time of year that word is quite apt ! )

    As to wilding.. Again providing it is not causing grief to others I reckon its great..
    Far more in the true spirit of things motorhome surely :thumb:
    And when I say not causing grief I do not mean simply not giving your money to a site owner.. I mean not leaving mess, not causing noise etc..
    I was told many many years ago that the best drivers are never ever noticed..
    The best wilders should be pretty much the same :Wink:

    If they are sitting on a car park for 2/3 weeks, where are they getting water from and what are they doing with human waste??:

    There is a tap in the park near where they are parked...
    Toilet dump ???? Lots of waste land over the road.... :Eeek:

    One year at that spot we saw a couple standing on the waste ground, she was bending and washing hair while the guy was pouring water over...
    Ok, saves filling the grey tank we may say..
    But they were in a decent £100k van ?? Each to their own but I dont see the point... :Doh:

    Benidorm 'parking'

    I have passed this area at least twice a day for the last week. Those there at the beginning of the week are not there now.
    The two big RV jobs were Funsters. 'Keith' was displayed in the windscreen of one.
    Another guy who I have met several times before was there for a couple of days before taking up his booked pitch on Raco.
    I have not seen any kit left outside any of the vans and the whole area looks very tidy.
    On several occasions it seemed that several of the vans were not occupied. I assumed the occupants had gone into the town.
    THEY ARE ONLY PARKING
    If they want to sit outside they can sit in the park. If they want to eat their own prepared food they can have a picnic in the park. I f they want to use the bars/cafes just like the rest of us, they can.
    They don't seem to have a problem with what they do.
    I don't have a problem with what they do.
    The local Police don't seem to have a problem with what they do.
    WHO HAS A PROBLEM?

    (ok I've done)

    Benidorm Parking

    i walk by the park twice a day with the dogs and usually have a chat with the spanish lady [Carmen] and her dog millou that sit in the park every morning.
    The motorhomes including the RVs that parked in the parking area were there on sunday morning but by sunday afternoon they had all gone so I suspect the police moved them on.the ones in the street had gone by this morning but there is still a couple in the cinema carpark.
    Any rubbish dumped down the bank is soon devoured by the locals picture enclosed [/SIZE
