A-Z Challenge 2012
We move from site to site on a regular basis. During the summer months with the vintage rallies we can be moving every weekend. During the winter it is every 28 days due to the current rules and regulations.
So home is really where ever we end up parking up.
It takes us no time at all to be fully set up and back to relaxing.
Our large awning takes the longest to set up at approx an hour to do these days, our first attempt took us 6 hours!
Getting ready to move takes no more than 30 mins to do the caravan and an hour for the awning.
We are moving today (Saturday) we will be moving from our current site, 100 yards down and across the road! So not far at all, so no travelling today!
In saying that we will be driving a few miles as the turn in from this direction is a little tight, so a trip around so I can get a good swing in is advisable.
I've now lost count how many times we have moved, it is all documented in our hard copy diaries, but it must be a few now!
I look forward to moving, I'm not keen on the packing up, but I like exploring around the new site, with different views etc. This will probably be the shortest move yet.
Our new site we checked out a little while back, it has showers, but we didn't take a look at those, so we will find out how good they are a little later.
Do we miss not having a definite base? Personally the answer is no, home is where ever you make it. My birth town is Shaftesbury which I always will have strong connections with, but do I miss the place? The answer again is no.
I guess since the age of 16 I have always moved on a regular basis, and so moving does not bother me at all now.
Moving house was a nightmare though, you tend to have so much clutter that you never use or need. Now, we have very little to worry about.
But we do have a little clear out and get rid of various magazines and old unwanted paperwork. It's surprising how soon it all mounts up even in a caravan.
So now off to move to our new "X marks the spot"
