Staycation - Three go to Devon Again

An Elddis Van Adventure!

We finally managed to get the Van topped up with LPG for the heating and cooking. Not that I think we'll need to use much of it on this trip we have only four nights in the van and the rest will be in the house we already paid for before we bought the Van!

Both the sites we are staying at in each direction have full electric hook-ups and that will allow us to put the heating on if need be. we have a microwave oven as well as an electric kettle and toaster that were designed to use less power in a caravan situation. The cooker hob has three gas and one electric rings. Once hooked up we have those we can use.

The next thing to get sorted is the Ohrex 7" satnav/GPS. Not the most intuitive piece of kit but so far I have managed to locate the places we are staying overnight and set them as favourites to save too much messing about trying to get it to work. After trying a few apps on my phone that didn't work that well I thought I'd try a £69.99 nav system. Time will tell if it is any good. At the moment it is scoring about 4/10! With familiarity that might go up. It does get a lot of decent reviews on Amazon.

So we are almost ready to go on the first van adventure!
