    Disaster Trip has had to be posponed for two weeks :cry:
    Got up this morning all our pipes had frozen but we decided to carry on loading the van, nearly finished filled with water and then :Angry: water pump in the van frozen solid, spend most of the day thawing the pump finished putting last bits in and yes you've probably guessed it started snowing. Within the hour 2 inches of the white stuff and impossible to get up the country lanes :cry:
    Still snowing so decided to alter our booking, so to keep costs down the earliest we could go is 24th Jan.
    Hopefully all will go well then :pray:

    Sorry to hear of your problems - best laid plans & all that :Sad:
    I bet everything's double & treble checked prior to your next attempt to escape the snowy stuff :Smile:

    Sound move. You don't want to be fighting umpteen tonnes of MH in these conditions.

    Bad luck, hope you have more luck next time. Wondering if we will get away next week or not?? Main roads clear here (Midlands) at moment, but need to go to Dover and not looking very clever down there :cry:
