We Have A Van!

On Tuesday myself and “The Critter” travelled north to Edinburgh. The train journey went without a hitch and as planned we met the seller at Waverley Station. The process went very well (Thank you Graeme, a productive deal for both of us). After an extensive handover, we journeyed back to Wrexham, with a short stop on the M74, so the “The Crit” could take on emergency foodstuffs, she had a fatbusting burger and chips, whilst I was very sensible and chose the healthy option:  chicken burger, chips and a diet coke!!

The van handled very well on the return journey and we were safely back in Wrexham at 6pm and new holders of the land speed record 😉

So, since the trip, I’ve spent some time getting to understand how everything works and generally getting ready for our maiden voyage which is this weekend to a site near to Moel Famau in the Clwydian Range: http://www.brynbowliocaravanpark.co.uk (review to follow).

  1. congrats! good looking thing, lots of fun times ahead for you this year then ^_^

    • Big time. Off to Barmouth on Mon 25th, 2 nights at http://www.trawsdir.co.uk (special offer £9 a night), not really our type of site, but the beach will be deserted and the facilities do look really good at that price. Then onto Bala for two nights 27/28th. Will have to arrange a van viewing 🙂

      • Happy days! Can’t complain about £9/night, can you? [could not see their special offer though, just the £18/van reference on their tariff page?]. Have you picked your Bala adventure yet? We stayed here http://www.bwch-yn-uchaf.co.uk/ last year, I loved it! Right next to the historic rail station and plenty of dog walks around. Which just reminded me: not featured it on here yet?! Currently looking into Easter adventure, not sure where to go yet, possibly Yorkshire or Norfolk [random but nice, ha!]. Van viewing with pub venture? ^_^

      • When u speak to the site on the phone, they confirm the £9 a night rate. Booking was really easy.The Bala site is Tyn Y Cornel………..I think!!

  2. PS: just to clarify……when I say *on here* what I mean is *vanplusfour.com*. Shameless plug ^_^
