The Wild RV'ers

RVs, or recreational vehicles or campers (UKspeak) are rampant here. They have parking sites of their own - mainly gray gravel and not very congenial to one used to boat parks. And they come in all sizes. Some are little cuties, detachable from a pickup base, and others are leviathans, with extendable side bits. The few roads there are here are big enough (the TransCan) and straight for these giants. Wouldn't like to try country roads in 'em in the UK.

Like boats, really - smaller ones can get into small places, the big ones have to lurk offshore.

    Now I know where I got the nerve to take the big blue horse box to the caravan site near Exmouth. It is obviously a north american (for that read Canadian) thing to take really a big vehicle to places where it shouldn't aught to be taken!

    Hope J is feeling better. The way to deal with the LCBN/Q is to buy loads of the stuff when you find one. Don't worry about the brown paper bags carry the hootch with pride - out in the open like what we do. You would want to end up like my mom and save the last half bottle for 3 months and then invite the neighbours round for a teeny little tipple.
