    Just back from a 3 week trip to France.
    We got hit by a tropical storm that nearly took our awning off.
    Then on a site that was very sandy....you guessed it ....we got our MH stuck in the stuff.
    Thinking things were not quite going our way.....well the MH exhaust decided to part company,
    my boy scout training came in handy here after I had emptied a tin of mixed veg so that the tin
    can could be used as part of the repair.
    Did we enjoy our holiday.....yes it was great...but it nice to be home.

    Ah yes, the storm. It hit us while on the m/way, the m/way without much drainage, nearly four tonne sure does aqua plane a lot. :eek:

    You have my sympathy on the "getting stuck in sand bit" but the women seem to like it when I do...?:cool:

    The storm hit us when we were at Biscarrosse Plage.
    We were stuck in the sand at Gros Joncs, Ile D`Oleron.
    The exhaust went after we left St Pallais sur Mer, about one hour into our journey.
    David, The fridge was fine, but this was because we were mainly on mains electric.
