    Following on from another thread asking what we leave when we go off our pitch

    How many of you do leave a pitch mid stay, we never have as yet

    I guess the size of MH will be one of the big deciders

    We stay 1, 2 or 3 nights on one site and do sight seeing, shopping etc when on the way to next stop over

    We run around local area of campsite in mh but if the area we want to visit looks busy and hard to park then will use taxi or bus if not to far away. Google street view is a great tool to check out what's around where you are isn't it .

    Usually no. Only done it once when the pub was too far away for the dog to walk to.

    We do but not often, having a 6m MH probably makes it easier than if we had something bigger.

    We drop anchor, then that's it. Walk, bus or bike. We have noticed that since changing over from the 'tug', we walk a heck of a lot more, and save fuel by either shopping on the way in, or the way out.

    With a 10m unit, once on site it stays put. Car parks are a no no. Anyway, God gave me two legs and the dog four, so use them. Also if it is out of the reach of the Bicileta then it's time to move on.:)

    We sometimes do if we fancy a meal offsite or a visit to the cinema as most sites don’t let you leave your dogs unattended in the van.

    7m motorhome and use it like a car. In 7 years and over 350 nights away used a bus twice.
    There is always somewhere to park it may mean a walk or cost 2 parking spaces but so what. If I am going to leave the MH behind then its time for a caravan.

    Never had a problem with that one. They only kick off if the dog takes up American Police Car siren lessons whilst your out.

    We either tow car or take bikes depending on trip planned, but either way get to see the sights.

    We do a mixture of walking, buses & taking the MH. Depends where we are.

    Never, but usually only stay a couple of nights, we try and stay in walking distance of some sort of facilities. One of our dogs is very arthritic and can't walk far and I'm to soft to leave her alone in MH and I don't do cities.

    We very often go off traveling/visiting in ours (I suppose thats the beauty of a van conversion) - if its somewhere thats not anymore than 3 to 4 miles away we tend to walk :Smile:

    Yes, on occasion, just depends if there is something we want to visit and what parking is available. About to invest in an Electric bike for the wife so that should change our approach. We also have a largish dog, so that does limit the transport options to the MH at times.

    If you can get an internet connection, you can download local bus timetables which we often use.
