    What plans do you have then, Is it Skiing this winter? or is that it now until your next summer holiday. I have Morocco planned but that seems an age away. Where are you guys going? Anywhere nice?

    As we are looking after my 82 year old father at the moment it is very difficult for us to plan in advance. We have however commited ourselves to the Parc Verger meet in France next August. In the meantime we hope to be able to attend a few MHFun meets and next weekend we are off to Belgium for a few days. Going out on Friday evening and overnighting at Ostend. We will then be going to Ghent until we return home on Sunday evening. We will of course be stocking up with Xmas goodies (booze, chocolate & fags) and will be filling up our tank with cheap diesel.

    We have nothing big planned until next summer when we are looking at driving to France and staying a week on the French 2008 trip, then onto Spain for 2 weeks with the Spanish 2008 trip, then over to Morocco and staying 3 weeks with the Moroccan RVF trip. Sounds good to me! Just all the planning to do now :BigGrin:

    Hi Lugnutt

    We are booked in for the night at Camping Blaarmeersen. This is near to a sports centre and there is what appears to be a rowing facility nearby. We did not know of any wild camping spots or aires at Ghent so opted for the site. Will have a look around to see if your location is near to us.

    Apart from a few days up in Norfolk for our daughters 21st birthday in November, nothing else now until mid March 2008. We are going to have a nice slow trip down through France and Spain, ready to join up one of Detourers Moroccos trips in April. Then home again via Portugal, Spain and France.
    Once back from there, we will be living in the van and touring around the King's Lynn area of Norfolk house hunting.
    Nothing else planned yet.

    Tina
