    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg I went to a local beach in my car today which is a known wild camping spot and spotted a van parked across a coastguard access gate, took a couple of pictures and got the finger from the lady (loose use of word) when they noticed me and they drove off.

    Found them up the road a little while later so got out to ask them why park across the gate and the finger as they drove off. Guess what more finger, masks put on and curtains pulled. A fine example of our community, especially this forum as the van had a smiley face in the passenger window, no not from the lady.

    And they will be the first to complain when barriers go up.

    You can just see the sticker in the first photo, if you zoom in. What I find amazing, is that they travel with masks to hand! Maybe they have just been to a fancy dress party, or maybe they make a habit of annoying folk. Watch out for CP56EWJ!!

    Well if they are funsters , ( and the sticker wasn't left on the van when they bought it ) I bet they're a wee bit embarrassed now !

    We've already have barriers on two car parks, if the coastguard or foreshore patrol see this type of thing they will get a barrier put up to stop access to this road, just spoils it for the responsible visitors, especially as there is plenty of space to park avoiding the gate.

    We also get a lot of twitchers there so perhaps they are confused doggers who just got it wrong.

    Maybe they were armed robbers about to do a blag on the local PO and you scared em off. Lucky you didn't get 2 barrels discharged at you!

    Confused o_O
    A height barrier won't stop numpties parking across an access?
    On my planet - inconsiderate pitching/parking would result in a huge "not in my name" sticker plastered across there windscreen.

    Everyone assumes because there's a smiley sticker it MUST be a funster or previously owned by one.
    MHF do not have copyright or a monopoly on yellow smiley stickers other than, I assume, official fun smiley stickers.
    From the pic it can't be seen whether it's a fun sticker or a generic smiley.

    I went to a local beach on a nice morning, hardly stalking.

    No it won't, but not getting into the private owned road giving access to the beach would!

    Don't think they are dogging as their are no bowls outside a well known thing for those of us with dogs. Their tax disc looked out of date as well :)
