Camper with Awning 2

Camper Trip to Lincolnshire

In addition to my first ever Quadrathlon in North Lincolnshire at the weekend we tagged on a family holiday in the Campervan as well. We’d never been to Lincolnshire before and this was to be our first extended camper trip too. The race was on the Sunday so we drove up on Saturday morning and arrived...

On the Drive 3

Campervan Essentials

Following on from my last post about buying a campervan, we now have it and it is full of all the campervan essentials. I drove down to Llanelli last Saturday for a last drive in my Meriva and collected the camper. The drive back in it was fine and I made it was far as Aberaeron...

Tent with new Awning 0

Loch Lomond Holiday 2015 – Day 4

Not much of a holiday day today really, as it was the last day in Scotland. Rain overnight meant that the tent was wet when we came to pack it up after breakfast and then it was time to load the car and start our journey south. We weren’t heading all the way home as...

Dragon Award Camping 1

Dragon Award Camping

Yep, we’re at it again – camping in the garden that is. Morgan, Anna and I only have September and December to tick off in order to get our Bronze Dragon Award. We have a Scout camp planned for December so thought we’d tick of September last night as well with a night under canvas in...

Building a Shelter 0

Shelter Building with the Scouts

The Scouts seemed to enjoy their shelter building evening in the woods that we organised for their last meeting. They all got stuck in building some pretty impressive shelters and all want to do it again with the plan of actually sleeping in them. Looks as though Anna and I have another shelter building evening...

We are continuing to do our best to give the Scouts an opportunity to complete their Bronze Dragon Award. This requires them to sleep under canvas during every month of the year. We did January and February over the course of one weekend and last weekend managed to organise a March camp too. Organising and...

Dragon Award Badge 1

Camping in November

We’ve decided that the Scouts should try to get their Bronze Dragon Award Badge. In order to do so, they need to camp outside under canvas in every month of the year. It can be done over the course of a few years, but it does mean sleeping under canvas in the winter months. The...

Glamping in the Garden 1

Glamping in the Garden

We have visitors coming this weekend – Well, actually they are arriving Sunday night for a couple of days. It’s my Sister Trudi, her boyfriend Mike and he children Kia an Shaun. As we only live in a small(ish) bungalow we don’t have huge amounts of room for them, mainly because one of our bedrooms...

Morgan as Doctor Who 1

Free Camping in Wales

We’ve just got back from another excellent weekend away camping for free in Wales courtesy of Chain Reaction Cycles and their series of MTB Marathons and Road Sportives. Morgan was on one of the floats in the Borth Carnival dressed as Doctor Who on Friday, so we packed the camping and cycling kit while he...

Careful what you stand on in the Dunes

As I’m sure you know by now we are at last having a proper summer. It’s been a while coming -10 years since the last one as far as we can remember – but  it’s here and looks set to stay for a while too. Weather conditions have been perfect here in West Wales. Whilst...
