PostSubject: Driving Down to Danbury   Tue Mar 19, 2013 5:58 pm

Just got back from a 3 day trip back to base. When i booked a service and MOT for mid March This is not the weather i was envisaging

Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle line


Ingleborough


Oakfield Farm Campsite, Horton about 5 miles from Danbury - no snow down South thank goodness


Now that's what I call a campervan - room for 4 Kombis inside


Whilst Priscilla was getting some TLC (the chunky kit-kats left in the glovebox for the mechanics did the trick she sailed the MOT) I took the loan car and headed into Bath

If you've never tried it I can recommend the new spa - It's in a Nicholas Grimshaw ultra modern building and on Monday morning the air temp was 5c but the thermal waters are 33.5c and it felt great in the open air roof top pool, steam rising and admiring the roof top views of Bath.

Great photo's.... It was lovely to see you again and the boys in the service department loved the kit - kats ! Bath is lovely and a great place to go in one of our loan cars for the day out. The Spa is well worth the visit too Very Happy

Those lads will be putting on weight if we keep feeding 'em up, Geoff.

Great pics by the way. We're headed back down on Friday on the train. Hoping the weather doesn't worsen for the drive back.

Great pics. Loving the viaduct and Ingleborough pics.

I did the 3 peaks race up Ingleborough, which included running by the viaduct.

Ha, bit warmer when i did it!!!

I kept a look out for Absinthe whilst I was in Yate but didn't spot her - she must be shy! I drove back up the M5/M6 a bit of a plod but straightforward enough and managed to maintain a steady 60mph.

Fuel prices at the services are still exhorbitant 1.49.99999 for petrol and £1.56 for diesel but luckily there are quite a few cheaper filling stations right on some of the junctions - J2 M5 was good ASDA @ £1.34.

see you soon

We had a prestty good run down - left at 7am and were at the services on the M5 just before the junction for Yate at 10.15 for breakfast.
