    Hi all
    we are a family of three
    my wife karen
    my son Ben
    and myself Chris
    We live in swansea on the Gower peninsular in South Wales
    We have an old T 25 VW Westfalia hightop Campervan
    the old engine has been replaced with a 2.2 Subaru block and its a water cooled auto shift
    My son dosent come with us much now as he is 22 years old unless we are going to a surf beach.
    In the past we have done a round britain drive taking in north Wales, to the Lake District then cumbria scotland sky Snowdon and home.
    Also we saild down to Cantabria northern spain and toured over as far as Portugal then back via the mountains ::bigsmile:
    I hope there are some like minded folk out there i know we have met a few:Smile:
    I am always on the lookout for places to free camp so any tips would be great.
    Thanks for reading :thumb:and hope to talk to some of you later.

    I see we live at oposite ends of the uk. Scotland was fantastic on our visite especially the whisky in Oban. Its a shame i found i could buy it cheaper in wales than the factory but the smell were awsome:beerchug:

    Hello and Welcome. I really love Gower, particularly Mewslade. What a place! I hope we get to meet you sometime at one of our rallies. Have a look at our section on Wild Camping. You'll get loads of places there. ::bigsmile::welcomefunster:
