Just got to some wifi, thanks MacDonalds, we had a brilliant weekend everybody, thanks to such good company. Another big thank you to @Jono1249 for his fire pit and wood. We set of after a lovely carvery, (what a very civilised way to round off a weekend camp) with the intention of getting to our next site just south of Shrewsbury but called a halt to proceedings as the weather got worse and worse. We very nearly got blown into the path of an oncoming lorry. I now know adrenaline is brown. The roads we were on we're quite exposed and trying to keep it on the road as we passed hedges and buildings gave me many tense moments. In addition to hail, torrential rain and side winds I got the wrong exits on a few of the bigger roundabouts so the atmosphere in our van became, Ummm, shall we say, Tense? To avoid a regrettable murder, either mine or Jan's, we decided to split the journey so pulled in and camped in a farmyard for the night. Woke this morning and the water in the dogs bowl had frozen That's campervan living. Still, all's good now, once the fog had cleared, and we're back on the road. Oh, by the way @Barneyrubble i would have sent you a pic this morning but my phones dead and somebody didn't pack the charger lead, so we're on the look out for a phone shop on our travels.
