Nice Day For a Road Trip!

We left the marina at the very early hour of 9.30am! Incredibly early for us, but we wanted to beat the worst of the forecast crap weather.

The closer we got to London the weather deteriorated rapidly, thank god we were in the UK where they know how to drive proper like!

We arranged to meet up with some friends from Oz at South Mimms services, it was the closest to their digs in Cheshunt, they are over here for  Christmas, we will have a proper catch up in early January when they come up North to the boat.

We had a good old chat for a coupe of hours then we left for our final bit of the journey to Bearstead Kent, by now the weather was much worse it was a bit of a struggle to keep the motorhome in one lane, it was handling a bit like the boat in the wind gusts.

We are now safely moored up in the campsite, I cannot believe how much the van is rocking in the wind, its worse than the boat!

I have to walk the doggies soon, I don't want to go, they arn't too keen either.  


  1. Does your motorhome not have rear steady legs, like caravans have ? That would stop the worst of the rocking.

    1. Hi Alf it does have the steadies, but the weather was so bad and I didn't want to get wet!

  2. Merry Christmas to you both. Stay safe and enjoy yourselves

  3. Stay safe and have a lovely Christmas. xx

  4. With rain like that on the motorway you might have been better off travelling in Caxton! Hope New Year brings better weather.

    Cheers, Alistair
