If like me you struggle to reverse your bus back into the same position on your pitch each time, especially at night, and sometimes in the day:oops:

Well I found a solution for me..These great little light up pegs from a local tesco, they cost about a fiver, if you knock them in roughly where you need to reverse your bus they work a treat, also useful for lighting up walking areas, they use a standard LR41 battery. I used them recently when camping at the Witterings, worked great!

They look a great idea! Especially for things like tripping over ropes too! Good find Smile

Just Googled to se if they do Red...sorry Tim they all look to be Ginger!!!

However I did find them for £1.99 on the web at http://www.tooltime.co.uk/shoppingcart/products/4-Light-Up-LED-Tent-Pegs.html

By the way, they are a bit tacky wouldnt want to rely on them holding down the awning in a strong wind..

Hey Tim
Perhaps a little red paint over the top would work?
Most if not all of "that ginger colour" would be out of site in the ground any way Laughing
Ideal though for anyone who may have such a coloured camper and wish to colour code their accessories Rolling Eyes

I went to Tesco to try and find some today before we go away tomorrow. No luck though, oh well.

I'll have to order some when I come back.
