  1. We are members of both major clubs, C+C.C. for 40 years and CMC for 5. We rally with C+C.C. and CMC we use for cheaper ferry prices and occasional CL’s. I read with interest information and advice given on these pages to “ newbies” wondering which of the 2 clubs to join. One reason given for joining CMC is “ their club sites are much better”. My question is How and why are they better? We’ve been on several CMC sites and this season already a couple of C+C.C. sites, I can’t see a difference. Both clubs sites are well manicured, ablutions are pristine and modern and site wardens( managers) are friendly and welcoming. I will be very interested to read what other criteria that should be taken into account. Any “ newbies” reading this,my advice either join both for a year or try each one in turn and try ALL forms of camping, rallies, sites , CL’s & CS’s.
  2. Thank you word master, glad you're home safe, hope we get some British travelogues to see us through 'till November! Keep well my friend
  3. I stay in hotels 2/3 nights a week, yes on expenses and average cost of hotel room is £100+ per night without food. My van cost £21k 2 years ago, I’ve got freedom to go where I want when I want, I can get up and go out or lounge around all day , compare that to a regimented beige box hotel room, where I am currently incarcerated. Now tell me what is the better value for money.
  4. We stayed on a lovely little CL last weekend, toilet no shower and EHU £12.50 per night Still at £22 per night for 2 people, I ask where else could you get accommodation that cheaply?
  5. Why no t go for an XC60 D4 or 5 AWD. I currently tow, and use as my business car doing around 30,000 miles a year. Solo ave 38 mpg. Towing still in the low 30’s.
  6. Ever been to La Linea in Spain, last crossing before Gibraltar? I thought 2nd + 3rd pics were there. And they’re mainly Brits
  7. Transported form cold wet dismal Merseyside to sunny Spain once again, thanks Jon, stay safe and travel well on your journey home
  8. A few of us are venturing into Germany in late summer and intend visiting Munich for Oktoberfest fest. I didn’t know until recently that you can’t just wander into the beer tents and order a pint, you have to book in advance a table, with food at a designated time and date. So after choosing the tent we wanted to visit, tried to book it, oh no minimum of 8 per table, booking opens 10am 10 th February. So at the appointed hour this morning was sat at my laptop with card in hand ready to book. 10am came opened up the site, 1 available time slot available only then realised it should have been 9am UK time! Oh well a Sunday afternoon session it will have to be. Just a heads up to anyone else thinking of going though.
  9. Local government in Wales in general and North Wales in particular have realised that Caravanners/Motorhomers and campers bring money into the local economy and are more relaxed over signs. Until recently Cheshire County Council banned temporary signs, they too appreciate our input into their coffers!
  10. 4 to add, 2 nights Whittingham & Goosnargh Club 2 nights St. Cuthberts CE. Both C and C. C. rallies, 40 nights to carry
  11. Not so long ago a stewards kit was a bag of signs, a pick and shovel ( to dig the “lattie”). Our DA still use one site where the farmer re-opens the Latrine, but thankfully with a JCB. One year we came and there was a dead sheep in the bottom of the pit!
  12. That means we’ll have to wait a whole ten months before we can read your marvellous journals! Keep safe Jon.
