    In the expensive world of camp sites you seem to be allocated your own "space" in the form of your pitch.

    In the rufty tufty world of the offsite motorhomer, people are free to choose where they park up.

    As some favourite places seem to be getting busier and as some motorhomers seem to like to park only a few feet from you despite there being plenty of space, I am thinking of having the following sign printed in large type face in French as well as English.

    PLEASE NOTE.

    I PLAY LOUD HEAVY METAL MUSIC OVER MY POWERFUL SOUND SYSTEM.

    I RUN MY GENERATOR EVERYTIME I NEED MY OVEN OR TOASTER.

    I SCREAM AND SHOUT AT FOOTBALL COMMENTATORS.

    I SNORE BADLY AND BREAK WIND OFTEN.

    PLEASE CONSIDER THIS WHEN PARKING TOO CLOSE TO ME.

    Its mostly French who park 2 feet away from us when we are wilding.. I think it is for reassurance and protection from a "Rostbeufs" as they call us !! I am a massive 5ft 4 inches (( But dangerous when provoked )) :LOL:

    But how does parking so close to us protect them from us?

    Maybe the garlic renders us safe?

    I give up!

    One left... (Pitch Shifter playing at the time...) and immediately another pulls in... if anything even closer.

    I will visit the excellent local supermarket, head west and park where I will be left in peace... the "No Caravans" sign puts off the masses...

    Surely you all know French vans like to cuddle up nice & close.:)
    We were parked up at the top of a pass in the Massif Central, one other French van there, another French van came along and decided he liked the spot next to the French van, so he got the parked van to put his step in so he could get nice & close!

    What about when you go for a pee, 6 urinals, two English guys one will stand at each end as far apart as possible, if a French man comes in he will stand next to you!

    Also on the beach find a nice space with plenty of room on a near deserted beach along comes a French family complete with screaming kids & fags on the go & they plonk themselves down less than 2 feet from you.

    You don't need a sign JJ what you need is some barred wire & a few stakes.:)

    Get a Spanish number plate, we always found that no-one parked near us when we had a Spanish registered van

    JJ -make sure the sign is translated into French. They, more than any other nationality appear to dislike parking too far from any other van.

    Well if I do the translation :sneaky:..... he's gonna have troubles..:giggler:.
    I can be terrible, especially with French parking too near Arrrgggg!

    I tend to use ... as we say in French some "green" language:swear:. Green being the colour of not matured fruit for most, so understand green language as "youth language"...= rude , not polite, familiar, direct, no manners....got it?

    If, 'In the rufty tufty world of the offsite motorhomer, people are free to choose where they park up,'' and if one chooses a location thats not a site or an aire with marked out spaces, presumably people are free to do just that and others just have to put up with it. Although it might hoped that they have the sensibilities to give a little space, if the need to get in they will regardless, a sign won't stop them, they will happily, and rightly, disregard it.

    Jeeeeez!

    It is a joke...

    I am not REALLY going to put a sign up!

    If someone moves too close for my liking (as happened last night) I just move (as I did last night).

    Sorted.

    JJ you know where we are parked, mostly folk are very considerate here but on two occasions whilst here we had French (sorry Frankie) park so close to us I could step straight into their van without touching the ground, the second van we couldn't even open our hab door when they had theirs open chatting to folk but they did move on the next day thankfully .. Thing is their was plenty of space around us they just couldn't be bother
