2014 trips so far

Post by neilwragg on Thu 24 Apr 2014, 1:36 pm

just some pics since I got our 6... this was the first time up on the drive

a rotten awning although nearly thirty years old!

and then tidying the inside

First trip in January amongst the hail

Chilly but bright in the Peak district

The second choice campsite because the first, near Weymouth, was under water proved to be a blessing with great facilities and weather

and then camping near Corfe Castle in a woodland campsite

The awning's new

Post by neilwragg on Fri 25 Apr 2014, 8:30 am

The new awning is from http://www.tentvaletingservices.co.uk (they made that original one over twenty years ago)


But I did get the sewing machine out to make matching cushions...

First attempt at appliqué

and piping, even though I'm generally an anti-cushion person

I remember that thread. The woman who unpacked it when you sent it to them was the woman who made it 20 years ago. The new one does look good.

Wellington Country Park - May Bank Holiday

Post by neilwragg on Wed 07 May 2014, 8:44 am

A local site for the May Bank Holiday weekend, together with some friends we lent them our Bell Tent.
We seemed to have bags of food everywhere!
The home made lantern hanging off the awning is a headtorch shining into a bottle of water, makes a great diffused light.



The site is in the woods and some of the pitches were very sheltered, different to a big field in the open.

Wonderful spot by the looks of things, love the way you're all sheltered in your own area. Great tip about the light
