It’s something that we need to remind ourselves from time to time. Why indeed?

A few years ago, my wife and I had become increasingly jaded by conventional holidays, so what to do? 

Caravanning did seem to offer a simple solution to that dilemma, for we both have fond memories – possibly distorted by time – of holidays spent in caravans at the seaside. Could a touring caravan offer a new challenge to a couple of fossils well past three score years and ten, as well as relief from being packed into increasingly smaller aircraft seats, or extruded through ever longer security procedures?

Buy a caravan to drag around the countryside, what could be easier; how naive we were; however, the die was cast a caravan, and a suitable tug together with all the paraphernalia that was deemed necessary to support life in our new sleeping box was purchased.

These tales will record both the enjoyment gained, some of the mistakes made, together with lessons learnt and tales of journeys undertaken as we wobble off into an uncertain future.

And, as a bonus, Dodger can come with us so we save on kennel fees.

I hope some of these notes will be of help to others embarking on a similar path or perhaps, and much more likely, they will provide us with a disjointed record to laugh at in darker times when we question our sanity.
