    Taken from a Spanish motorhome Facebook site.

    I Google translated, cos I couldn't be bothered to type it all out, and it tells the story perfectly. Some people don't believe this happens. I know it does, and this photo proves it.


    QUOTE

    "Because of the riffraff like this, the prohibition discs are planted ... Yesterday at noon, on the beaches of Elche, next to the hermitage of Santa Pola, I could do this a few meters ... Evidently I told him everything except "bonico" and stopped doing it. The motorhome was Dutch, and as my Dutchman is rather null, another group of Dutch caravans that were close to see me discussing joined and, this time in Dutch, they threw the octopus ... So much that it did not come back in all the afternoon ... Apart from this, vehicles with extended awnings, chocks, barbecues ..
    In short, this is the despicable attitude that causes Elche to be posing permissiveness with us. Even I think about it ... Then we complain and how we always pay fair for sinners."

    Do these morons have any brain cells?
    We love being F'LT but doing things like that is despicable and gives us all a bad name. I bet he doesn't empty his cassette in his garden when he gets home, or perhaps he does and thinks it's normal.

    The problem is its going to affect every one of us who is a decent, considerate motorhomer. I can see the law eventually changing to prohibit any sleeping in a vehicle :cry:.

    I saw a bloke beat up his wife once...

    He lived in a house.

    Did he give all house dwellers a "bad name"?

    Of course he didn't.

    It is not motorhomers that do disgusting things... it is THAT PARTICULAR motorhomer who does...

    And the fact he was Dutch is irrelevant.

    Not quite irrelevant , as I noticed many decades ago when I first went traveling in my landrover thru Europe , that Holland and Belgium frequently smelt terrible , I believe this was down to them dumping tonnes of S#!t in their fields . :)

    Ok then, any sleeping in vehicles within a certain distance of the coast, which is where most of these problems occur.

    I don't want it to happen, but something will, eventually, be done.

    Spot on Lenny, as most F'LT are seasoned campers and would not dream of this behaviour, you just know more condemnation will be directed at us as we will automatically be judged guilty by association.

    Time for a rant...

    Living here in the North Highlands you'd be surprised and shocked at what some motorhomes leave behind...

    During the summer we don't leave our bins at the road side because they magically fill up, generally from someone in a motorhome. I chased a couple from the Midlands few years ago as I'd watch them dump bags of rubbish in my bins. The couple were quite hostile with me and needed a lot of pushing to go and retrieve THEIR rubbish.

    Discharging sewage in lay-bys. Yes, it happens, more often than you might imagine. Why anyone would this that this okay is beyond me...

    Objects thrown from vehicles. Motorhomes are just as guilty as other road users. Why? I just don't understand why anyone would.

    Wild camping. So someone camps for free and thinks, 'I know, I'll leave all my rubbish here, that way I'll ensure that the land owner stops access'. Remember, we have a right to roam in Scotland, not a right camp and leave rubbish behind.

    Having said all this, I've often invited a MHs to camp on my property, fill up with water and so on. It's been a pleasure to meet people and one or two appear every summer and will stop just to say hello.

    Scotland is now talking about introducing a tourist tax. So don't get the hump when you get charged for enjoying the Highlands, someone has to pay for the actions of idiots.

    Lastly, as I've mentioned elsewhere on the forum. Please let vehicles past, use lay-bys and passing places. I've been in an ambulance stuck behind so stupid pig headed moron who thought he had some god given right to impede an emergency vehicle.

    This great wilderness here is fabulous, if you've never experienced it, you should. Please do behave though, it might be the backdrop for Outlander, BFG and many more, but it is home for us who live here. Please come and enjoy, please come and respect.

    Stevie

    first off, hes not tipping anything in the photo, there is another five gallon drum beside him , has he emptyed his cassette into it to empty somewhere else, just photographing someone with a cassette in his hand doesnt say hes tipped anything, if he has fair does give him hell but a photo out of the blue doesnt prove anything.

    Are you saying you have never witnessed anyone doing it, I have told many about getting everyone thrown off. :rolleyes: Only a couple of weeks ago, I saw someone walking up to the bins with a big bottle of p*$$ the remainder was probably in the rubbish bag. :eek:
