    So, we had the loveliest week in North Devon. Stayed at a camp site in Lynton, within walking distance even! Very pleased.

    I did start a thread here earlier about the fact that they had extra charges for everything, but that didn't bother us. We had a good pitch in an almost empty site, power hookup, short walk to town, lovely! :BigGrin:

    When we arrived we were met by "I just work here" man. Can't remember his name. He, as he liked to say, just worked there. He pointed out where we were to camp - warned us about gas attacks! (Seriously? :Eek!:) Pointed out where the showers were etc.

    I asked about where we can dump our grey and black water.

    He said something along the lines of "just find a lay by and open up over a drain. Don't worry about it. Just a bit of soapy water, just dump it anywhere. Same with the back if you find a deserted field.... well, you know, horses do it out there it's all the same!"

    Really Mr "I-just-work-here" camp site man? Really?

    I wonder if he was just trying to wind up a greenhorn? On inspection I found we were actually camped about 25 meters from the chemical disposal area designated for emptying your loo. He must have known it was there. What sort of game was he playing? I'm confused.

    I would be extremely surprised if a site offering EHU , didn't have signs for chemical disposal.

    Use your eyes I reckon:thumb:

    Yes, I did, and I found it.

    Like I said "On inspection I found we were actually camped about 25 meters from the chemical disposal area designated for emptying your loo"

    But I was sitting in the van being welcomed to site, showed where the showers and the toilets and the shop were - it seemed natural to ask at that point about disposal? Logical? No? Why should have have to walk the length and breadth of the place looking for disposal points when he was right there giving me the welcome and short tour of the site? Am I missing something?

    He is obviously a Funster and has been absorbing the information given in various threads on here about grey waste:Wink::RollEyes:

    That's a distinct possibility , have you got a sticker in the van, did he know you were a funster, was he just winding you up

    I'm sure he was having a joke, in the West Country we talk slow and look glum even when we are really happy. Maybe a hint of sarcasm as well because there's no way you would have showers and loos but no waste disposal, we grow on you with time.:Smile:

    Yes you are a site plan clearly showing all the amenities, usually hand out at most receptions when you clock in
    but what did you expect arriving after midnight:Doh:
    It was after midnight yes?? :Rofl1::Rofl1:
