Sundowner here !!!
Wow what can i say, to say that i am totally P****d off would be an understatement.
Got the new tent went to the broadwater tourist park Mon 24th booked till Sat 29th, got so much bad weather, soaked through to the skin, pools of water around the tent, Thurs night 27th the heavens opened all night with gail force winds, got 1hrs sleep all night, decided to head back to Brissy 1 day early, trying to get the tent/tarp, ground sheets etc down in bucketing rain and wind was an absolute nightmare.
Unfortunately it brought all the bad memories of past camping from last time in the UK and you may think me a wuzz but it has put me off camping again......sorry folks.
Gonna get us another pop top caravan for me and Patricia, we are 50+ now and to be honest the last 5 days has buggered us up.
Think we will leave the camping scene for the younger generation, brand new Sportiva Headland 12 had to be put away wet but we will hopefully get a break in the weather tomorrow to get it out and allow to try then re pack correctly.
Will get a caravan but stay a member of this fantastic forum as obviously a big similarity between campers and caravanners.
Hope all who went away over this festive season had a somewhat better experince than us.
Safe travels to all.
