I have had this camper van for four months and only just managed to take it on an actual camping trip. How very lame of me! For the tester run we decided to take the van (which is until now nameless - you have to name your van!) to Seacotes campsite in the Lake District, Cumbria. This site was decided upon as I'm familiar with the site and the surrounding areas, so this meant we could concentrate on our kit and the van - making sure all bases are covered. Anyone with kids will know you have to think of everything!
Took a drive over to the Wild Boar park in the Trough of Bowlan today, it turns out the Trough Of Bowland is only about 45 minutes drive from me so no grumpy travel weary kids to deal with! The scenery in the Ribble-Valley is very English indeed, lots of rolling hills and farmland as far as the eyes could see. I'm not going to lie, i'm pretty disappointed in myself for knowing hardly anything about this area as it's so close to where I live.
