Well it was supposed to be a half-term camping trip but ended up a few nights away as the rest of the time was a mad scramble to get everything ready. The day before the bus interior was all hurriedly re-installed and the make-shift "facia"/insulation was put in place. The big question was "will everything fit?"....especially with my rather large toolbag and spares. Was very impressed by what you can stash under the front seats! Everything was going swimmingly well until I took a toilet break and on my return noticed that the awning was still in the hall and not on the roof rack as first believed - yes we almost forgot it tuesday_wildchild. So after a bit of repacking we were ready for off. I pulled off the drive to let my wife park her Berlingo on it before we set off and then hit the first problem. The dog restraint didnt really help restrain our dog's desire to sit in the driver's seat - he has always hated travelling in cars and usually has to be carried in and out. The only reason he got in the bus was that he hadnt quite twigged yet that it moved! At this point we were only 4 hours behind schedule, on an already truncated trip but the wife improvised and within 5 minutes had come up with a suitable solution using some surplus ply that was lying around. Need to come up with a more strategic solution for this, with maybe a modified westy box between the seats. Finally, We were then all ready, and off we set for North Norfolk which proved relatively uneventful - only stopped twice, once for a flapping tarp and another for lunch and the oportunity to investigate some non-specific noises coming from the front. On the way up the A11, through thetford forest and towards Fakenham and beyond we met with lots of smiles and waving; of note were a red camper going the other way who were full of smiles and a lowered modern golf whose driver was flashing vigorously and giving a big thumbs up.....can only assume that he had left his bus at home. Arrived at Breck's farm just outside Holt - very easy to find. The lady who checked us in asked for 30 quid for 2 nights even though I told her we were 2 adults, 2 kids, 1 dog, a camper and awning....result. It wasnt too busy so we had lots of choice where to pitch, finally opting for the Meadow as we didnt need/have a hook-up. If you notice in the photo the driveaway awning isnt really attached. In th pandemonium of trying to get the bus ready we had made some assumptions about what wasin the bag...like clamps for connecting to the roof doh! Oh well need to get those then. Consequently didnt really get a chnce to try this out and it was used more for storage. I am not sure I would use it when touring as putting it up and down was a bit involved - seemed a bit more useful for being relatively static, say in the Lakes for a week. Oh yes it was an Outwell CountryRoad. First nights sleep in the camper was awesome. Had a great nights sleep and didnt need any of the contigency plans- the forecat was for wind and lots of rain overnight so we could have withdrew to the awning if the leaks got too bad! No leaks at all, depite most of the rubber seals on our import being dried out. In the morning things got even better as there is an guy who turns up at a breakfast booth selling tea, bacon butties etc !!! After getting stuffed for breakfast off to the extensive shower block. Had token(50p) operated showers which caught me out the first morning as you only get about 3 minutes!! Aparrently shower 1 in the ladies time restriction mechanism seemed to be broken.....although that would have been a bit pervy for me to use. Rambling a bit and dont want to make his overlong. As the kids had non-pupil days we were staying til Monday and it is fair to say almost everyone left on Sunday. Unfortunately the downside of this was that the breakfast booth wasnt open next morning. Had a great time checking out Sheringham( Norflok Ice cream at Ellies was tops) and saw a nice green bay from Norfolk Retro Hire...or something like that. Driving around i thought we had a problem with the "big end" but turned out that the dog was shaking aand knocking the cupboard door- a big relief. Also there appeared to be a problem with the roof rack and the wind getting under it so when we arrived back on site I made my kids sit on it as it appeared to have lifted......my son decided he liked to read up there after that. Location was great. Liked the site , although I could have done with longer in the shower...maybe 2 or 3 tokens worth. There was a bigger site along the road which proved a lifesaver for us to pick up a 907 campinggaz bottle and had a nice shop also. All in all a great first trip out with no need for reovery services, even though we limped home the final 20 miles with a suspected rear drum problem - still need to verify. One final question, how do you easily pass chocolate minstrels from the front seats to the back - at full stretch we could barely get a handoff.
