Staycation - Fairlight Wood - Recce

I had a recce on Sunday after a breakfast meet with my bike club, The Meldrews. The coast road would be perfect until you get to the turn off for Pett Village. Right at the end it says "unsuitable for caravans" and it did look very narrow. Even from the seat of a motorcycle it looked narrow!

On the way around onto the A259 the recommended route didn't look too much better, if am totally honest! Gulp as they say. W have fat club in the morning and then I have to drive Claire to Folkestone to the dentists. I might take Reggie with me and we can have a walk and a coffee whilst she is in their getting done.

Then it is back home and load up the Van. The campsite even sticking to the main roads is only about 30 miles tops. We aren't supposed to arrive before 3pm and so there's no hurry to set off for that short a journey.

At least we have LPG gas now to power the cooker and heating. Finally achieved last week. Luckily they still had some at Dover by the Western Docks. A guy on the pump next to us was off to France and wanted a little gas until he could get some over there. He said that no one along the coast as far as Brighton had any. We had problems as they were very low. I managed to fill or part fill both bottles with a total of 22 litres. One of the attendants said that they were very low and that it was taking a long time to dispense it.

So two days and we are off.
