Caravanning : More than just freedom?

Its 17:53 and I’m strutting around the house with a beer and an aura of accomplishment. You see today I’ve been digging up the roots for two Hydrangea in our back garden. Just ridding the garden of these 2 mammoth plants has effectively doubled our garden size. Go me. Whilst I was swearing, heaving and hoeing in the garden today I found along with an unfortunate ear worm (Laughing gnome by David Bowie) that I was repeating, “I’d rather be in the caravan, I’d rather be in the caravan” and looking on social media this evening, it appears we are the only people in the world that are not away in...

The ultimate caravan jockey wheel

The ultimate caravan jockey wheel

Its April and its seven months since we collected our new caravan. One of the few niggles I have with the caravan is its terrible Jockey wheel. The jockey wheel is a standard ALKO type made of a hard plastic and this became an issue when we manoeuvred the caravan at a recent trip away at Lincoln Farm Park. The wheel would not turn when we moved the caravan with the motor mover, and just kept digging into the pitch. This meant I had to keep lifting the front of the caravan onto the soft gravel that was in front of the caravan, while Angela shuffled her feet to reposition the gravel and remove...

Caravan, camping and motorhome show

So how was it for you? I am of course, referring to the caravan, camping and motorhome show. It was from the outset a very popular show with an increase in footfall and popularity. For me however, it felt kind of strange. I feel completely disconnected from the show, and this is 100% down to me. I did attend the show and I did film lots. But, my filming schedule was for paid work so no content would be coming out on our channel. I am completely fine with this. I thought having a break from filming would help other channels really flourish and share their own experiences of the show. And I...

TourerFest 2019

Hi everyone, Its Jules from Here We Tow writing a guest blog and i’m delighted to announce the details of TourerFest 2019. It has been a journey since last May 2018 from Anita’s touring park. We have felt that the time is right to announce the efforts so far from Iain, Andy, and Jon, but first lets bring you up to speed with what we have done just to get to this point. To keep this brief we have been in contact with several companies and secured some potential sponsors for this years event. I think it would be unfair at this stage to name these as we are still trying to sort out what...

Amazon influencers

Amazon influencers

It has been some time since I sat quietly in the office, just typing some words on the computer in the hope that the words make sentences and make sense. So far, so good. I hope. A couple of weeks ago Amazon sent me an email asking if I would like to join their influencer program. I quickly clicked read and moved on to more important emails, but in a moment of calm, I re-read the email and investigated the scheme they have now set up in the UK. The program gives us a storefront on-which we can list and group products that we want to promote. I thought about this idea and after a couple of...
