    Maximum a month, get bored after that. :ROFLMAO:

    But it depends where we are, over winter in Spain then if its nice a month, touring France or Germany a couple of days in the UK normally a rally so could be up to a week, but usually a weekend. Its not very often we park one day and move the next.::bigsmile: Bob.

    Depends on how much washing the boss has and if she can get it dried, but usually only a few days

    If we are exploring an area we then like to stay for at least 3 nights to give us 2 full days.

    Up to 4 days so far, if I remember correctly. Depends on whether it's a stop-over or a base for exploring.

    One of these days I'd like to book for longer but for various reasons it's never happened so far.

    We stay longer in winter than spring and summer, now weather is warming up we only stay 2 or 3 days but stay as long as a month in winter.

    It really depends, no hard and fast rules. We were going to stop for 3 days at a site in Portugal and ended up staying for 12 days, but 3 days is a good time, then I start getting the map out :Smile:

    Depends, could be as little as one night, often 2 if we want to look at the town. Last summer liked an overnight stop so much we stayed for 2 weeks, and that was a proper site (big bucks - well ACSI discount)

    It's been that long since we stayed on a site I find this one impossible to answer!

    When we were tent camping and used to stay on sites, it might be a fortnight. When bike touring and tenting, we might only stay a night or 2 on the way to wherever our planned destination was. However some sites have really stupid rules. Stayed on one in Provence when on the bike, decided to leave so packed everything up, drove to reception and asked to pay - only to be told we should have told them yesterday and why hadn't we seen the notice that clearly stated that?

    Because it was on the INSIDE of the office door facing inwards; that's why - we hadn't been in there since we checked in, when the door was propped open so the sign hadn't been noticed! :Doh:

    I said please yerself, if you don't want to take our money right now we can quite easily get the bike round the edge of the barrier! - she soon did the bill. LOL

    We used to only stay 1 night and drove around quite a lot, now tend to stay 2nights sometimes three. not doing as many miles as we used to each trip.

    Stay normally overnight unless there is something we want to visit, then will return for a second night.
