Staycation - Fairlight Wood

Another shakedown

With one shakedown over and done with, it has given us a few pointers on what to expect. What we need to pack and what we need to leave behind

The former is actually a longer list than the latter. What we did forget were chairs to sit outside. Maybe if the weather is a little better on the next one, I mean not hovering around freezing once the sun goes down (!), we could use them and also deploy the awning.

We need LPG. I have watched several YouTube videos on filling. It looks easy enough. You just have to find someone stocking LPG or Autogas. There are only 7 places in Kent! I have an app that shows locations. The one I have found locally is a taxi compnay and I need t phone them on Wednesday morning to see if they have any and we can go up there and fill the tanks.

Fairlight isn't that far away either. It's along the A259 west of Rye in East Sussex. It's a Camping and Motorhome Club site. We joined that when we bought the Van. They have loads of sites up and down the UK. It will be our first visit to a club site.


As we are only away one night we probably will only make tea and coffee and then eat our breakfast that we will take with us. Reggie will have his stuff too in the fridge for his dinner and breakfast. So what I intend it to test the gas heating and the cooker to make sure they are all working before we go away to Devon the week after.

I'll also book a table at the nearby dog friendly pub!
