Awaycation Winter 2022 - Day 16 Part 1

Zaragoza to Haro

Part 1

Yesterday was quite cold and soon after we arrived at the campsite it began to drizzle. It rained more later. This wouldn't usually be a problem but we have the insulated windscreen cover that goes on the outside. It will be wet through when we are packing up.

Today we continue up the N232 towards Logroño and then to Haro. One road and two days on it by the time we arrive! It looks from the map that it finally ends up north of Burgos where it meets the road to Santander.

The Mercadona is definitely shut. I checked opening hours and it showed seven day opening. So I asked a question on their Google map entry. Conflicting answers. Then I saw they had updated the opening hours to show it closed. Bummer.

With it being a holiday I guess we can expect more people on the road. Yesterday there weren't that many until we got near Zaragoza.

The route is in the satnav. Maybe I am expecting too much to hope that the LPG Repsol station on the way to be open. Just maybe though... Or wait until we are back in France.

Diesel Fuel in Spain is cheaper than France and with the 25¢ discount at the till it brings it down to around €1.50 a litre. At the current exchange rate that's around £1.29 a litre. Or a saving of 60p plus!!!

Part 2

A very cold night. I thought we might experience EHU rage. We are plot 82. The power box is clearly marked which plots use which socket. When we arrived 83 was obviously too lazy to use the point with his number so used ours. I then used 112 that backs on to us. Then someone arrived. A little Spanglish later and all settled amicably. All due to dumb ass next to us...

The overnight rain has finally stopped and there's a vain hope that it will stay dry today. It needs to be dry for us to wrestle the insulated cover back into its bag!

The plot surface here is very sandy, although compacted, but it sticks to the soles of your shoes. So we have been brushing the floor constantly.

We need to be away soon. EHU disconnected. Gas off... 😁
