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...

Caravan, camping and motorhome show

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...

Love2Stay

It was sometime earlier this year that I started to see a lot of positive reviews of Love2Stay. It was always a place I wanted to visit and, this year it seemed the time was right for us to visit this new offering For those that are unsure of what Love2Stay is, it’s a new affiliate club site (Caravan and Motorhome Club) and has been constructed by the team that run Salop Leisure. The site offers a high specification of facilities, some onsite activities and fully serviced pitches for all who visit the site. We booked our trip for the beginning of August to coincide with our 21st Wedding...

Our new book project

Our new book project

It’s true. I have a book in the making. So far, I have written 16 chapters of various topics all relating to caravanning. It’s a natural extension from our YouTube channel and links many topics that we have covered together. It also provides extra information that cannot easily be contained on a video.   What is the book about? Well that’s where it gets a bit tricky. You see, I’m crowd funding this project and until the project is agreed and the publisher agrees with what I want to create and share, then it’s all a bit hush I’m afraid. But it relates to caravanning and will be great for...

Selling the caravan

Selling the caravan

Yes, it’s true. We are selling our Lunar Clubman ES. I suppose it’s a decision we have been building up to for a while now. It’s a decision based on pure logic. If we incorporated emotion I’m sure we would stick with what we have because, the truth is, we love our caravan. He is a part of the family. With emotion aside, there are a few reasons why we feel now is the time to move on to another caravan. Our decision is based around a few key elements and these are summarised below: 1. We are a different family now. When we purchased the caravan, our requirements were for a family of 4. Since...
