    Hi I have not been on the road since the end of September & thankfully will be heading for Spain in just over a weeks time so my question is how long before you start getting itchy feet & the urge to travel I seem to only last about 2 months how about you happy travels Rod

    I get itchy feet after a week. I'm happy enough if we go local or even on the drive. Stupid I know but once the blinds are shut we can be wherever we want to be in our mind.

    We seem to work on a 2 month clock, after this period if we are home we want to be on the road and if we are away we start to long for home. However this applies to relatively long trips and during the summer we manage to slake our wanderlust in the UK with trips to music festivals and the ever lovely Cornwall.

    Took delivery of our new van 2 weeks ago. Brought it home, filled it up with all the stuff from the old van and......................................................................
    it's just been sat on the drive ever since.
    Absolutely bursting to get away in it, but so much crap, err, I mean family issues, keep getting in the way.
    Looks like it'll be after New Year before we can go anywhere so, like Irnbru, I'm going to live in it on the drive for a while.:)

    Me too.

    Nice to use our own laundry machines and be sure everything has been properly washed and dried though.........

    We've got a portable washing machine on board so not an excuse for us. Mrs C likes to get back home to see the grandchildren though

    It's more the drying that is the problem..... we usually kidnap the older grandson when we want to. At 4 months the younger is a bit too small yet.
