Scouting Trip

Discussion in 'UK Smokers' started by kc5tpy, Jun 16, 2014.

  1. Hello All.  2 weeks ago the Missus and I bought a new (1994, but new to us ) caravan.  Well, as we needed to do a “shake down” cruise, AND the new part of the campsite in Woodhall Spa is now open I decided to kill two birds etc..  I booked the same site I will be on in August.  So I “forced” myself to go away for 4 nights on a scouting mission.  I had to lay out in the sun, order take away,  grill some steaks and drink too much lager!  The things I MUST do for the sake of the Group!

    The new section has been done with the same quality as the older sections.  There are 2 things I want to make note of:   1. As this is a newly developed section the big trees are missing in this section, the saplings are planted and 20-30 years from now it will look great but they will not be there for August.  2.  The drains for gray water are there but they then found that connecting the drains to the mains were “ going to cost 2 legs and an arm” so that connection has been postponed.  You will need to bring your gray water containers for the weekend.  The gray water and sluice disposal are not very far away.  Below are a few pictures we took to give you an idea of how it looks.

    As I didn’t know if anything worked on the caravan I didn’t plan a big smoke.  I grilled/smoked a couple steaks but nothing to write home about.  Next time will do better.  Keep Smokin!

  6. Hello.  No Wade, the site was pretty full.  Folks just didn't know about the new area I suspect.  We had it to ourselves for most of the weekend.  Just FYI, these Folks were in the finals for U.K. camp site of the year, don't know where they finished but they didn't win. Folks won't be disappointed with a stay at this camp site.

    Danny is just being modest, he booked the whole campsite just for him and his bride. Brownie points...
     
  8. Hello Foam; my friend.  You can't dismiss the beauty and serenity of the woods and a beautiful moon light night!  Many a girl..... That's a different subject!  [​IMG]   Keep Smokin!

    Well done on the scouting party. Were the natives friendly or will we have to form the wagons into a circle ?
