    When your parked up for a couple of days on a site and you need to leave for whatever reason do you mark your pitch? In a former life as a camper owner a mate of mine had four pegs and some rope with a number plate. He pegged out the shape and roped it off with the number plate attached to the rope.

    Any other ideas?

    Yes, yes, yes, I know. Don't leave :whistle:

    Haha, nice one. Sometimes you get a great pitch and want to go back to it, other times it doesn't matter.

    Must be missing out, most of the sites I have used are allocated numbered pitches, so you are given a number when booking in and that is where you return to if you leave

    Should I be going to these free for all rabble sites instead ?

    What, like the Caravan Club sites, you mean? :eek:

    You get to chose your own pitch from those available on club sites. You usually get a little map showing which ones are free, but some folks' map reading skills are a bit suspect. I imagine they had people setting up on apparently vacant pitches, then going back to the office to say which one they had chosen, only to be told they had to move. So it's in the club's interest to make sure pitches are marked when you go out for the day. So a nice little sign in the club colours so it blends in with all the other signage they have! :sneaky:

    I bought one some years ago, but never used it yet on a club site! Used it in a few other places though - it's useful on CS & CL sites.

    Any sign you use has to be unique to you, otherwise anyone could use it so it would disappear! Also, don't do what some do and leave buckets, electric leads, steps etc to 'mark' your pitch as they will almost certainly get nicked!!!!!
