Suki gone to storage!

And what we learned on holiday!

After three weeks on the drive and away in france I have taken Suki back to the local Caravan and Motorhome Club site to go into storage. I forgot to make a note of the end mileage and for that matter the start of the trip mileage, and so have no real idea how many miles we did in the loop around France. It is somewhere in the region of 1450.


She does look a bit lonely parked up in Bay 10. But there are a few caravans to keep her company.

I'll have to check the football dates and see what trips away we can fit in for a few days away. I will be lookign at midweek rather than weekends. I doubt it will be any cheaper but it may mean fewer people around.

So what did we learn from the last adventure?

1) Fewer miles between campsites. Plan shorter days on the road as Suki is much slower than a bike or even a car and takes longer to go anywhere. Plus need to stop for regular breaks for Reggie.
2) Check when other countries/regions have school holidays! I don't dislike kids but after 30 plus years working in education and teaching even other peoples' kids you can give back at the end of the day are still there in the evenings!
3) Campsites. Choose smaller campsites that are dog friendly have electric hookups and aren't like holiday camps with entertainment 24/7 and noise until 1am!
4) Campsites with a choice of hard standing. Getting off the pitch at Sandaya Grande Cote was difficult with the soft sand.
5) Don't take as many clothes! Giving them a tour of Europe without them coming out of the locker is pointless and adds weight!

What else? It will come to me sooner rather than later.
