Discussion in 'Holidays, Trips & Campsites' started by MR SAM HODSON, Dec 12, 2021.

  1. I'm going to keep an update on all the trips i plan on doing and do in here!

    for 2022 i plan to attend Ninove and into Spain in the Summer.

    beforehand Scotland on boxing day..

    Anyway here's this weekend, i went to the lakes straight from work.. wild camped 2 nights around Keswick, ate in the pubs and hiked in the days, nothing too interesting to report.. wet.

    I'm currently training for Kilamanjiro in February.

    Nice one Sam.

    I look forward to hearing more about your trips.

    Love the snowy photo.

    We are in the Lakes a lot at the moment (not usually in the camper), so I'll keep my eyes peeled for you.

  4. this weekend has consisted of:

    a wild camp outside of Keswick and an ascent of Skiddaw.

    Shopping in Keswick

    a Night at the National Trust Sticklebarn In the langdales and an overnight stay in their carpark.. permitted at 10.00.

    a night on Windermere... propex gave up during the week with a suspected Flame Sensor issue.. unfortunately doesn't work via a Thermocouple and is a posh electronic thing...

    propex suggest a new pcb and to fix as the voltages are fluctuating everywhere on the pcb connections.. very helpful talking me through all their procedures to find the fault.

    I've found a higher capacity one on ebay for about the same money so going to bid on that and repair mine in the long run and sell.

  10. coniston hall camp site.

    cheap if you're on your own, charge per person and vehicle charge.

    12.00 adult + 2.00 for the van per night

    this is charged per person, lots of families paying an absolute fortune this weekend.. not sure if this is normal. but i usually stay on national trust sites if i have to and these are per van at 11.00 regardless of occupancy...
    anyway.. a wild, drunken weekend with about 20 others[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  12. so, I'll kick this thread into touch once again

    I've driven 450 miles this week, Subaru powered of course, i cannot begin to even tell you how incredible this machine now is.

    fault free fun, around Yorkshire and Cumbria... i somehow over filled the tank one day but easily remedied.

    incredible weather, empty spaces and lots of gin. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
