I know it sounds daft to post this on here but I have a chance to buy a campsite.
at the present time it is undeveloped and has a couple of toilets only.
It has a hard standing area for mhers and plenty of other pitches.
BUT it is a wild area wich is why we use it,
400 yds from an excellent beach
private areas for camping in small groups. which will have a fire pit for bonfires.
water on tap. no hook ups at the moment but I plan to put in a few.
a Uk residential address for full timers [with full forwarding service] and as it is a country address it should save a lot on insurance for some.
an area for No children parking
an area for family parking.
we are talking £4-5 a night less for a week
there are no waste facilities as yet but that would be a priority
Now tell me as a wold camper would you use something like that if you were in the area {no wilding allowed locally]
tell me what you would want in the way of facilities?
showers play area
and I would be looking for volunteers [free pitch] to look over the site while I go off wilding a couple of times a year

the chemicals we use in the port potti's would they stop me from using the waste in a methane converter?

then let me ask for some help

1 ie-mail me direct at team-x@supanet.com with a note of how you like my ideas for the site, any other things that you would like to be considered to be added to the facilities. and would you use it and how often.
These are for the bank manager to go with the business plan so nothing silly please.

2 if any of you have some spare cash anything from 500 to 10k and would like to invest then let's talk.
I prefer friends to banks anyday and will offer better returns than any other investment plus free camping.
all would be written up legally.

some time back some cfer's proposed we buy a woodland between us to use as a site. we were put off by the regs and rules.
a campsite does not have those restrictions and I'm hopeful that many of them will come in on this with me. and also some of you.

this will not stop me being a wild camper or supporting wild camping. it is our land and we should be able to use it as long aS WE DO NOT DAMAGE IT.

sorry Roi dont know, but if you get in touch with the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) Near Machynlleth in Wales im sure they could advise. they have dozens of books and manuals on such things

unfortunately I now have my answer
yes it would, that is exactly what they are designed for so wont be able to use it to generate my gas fuel for the heating of the showers and water. bum it would have saved a lot of loot and helped keep fees down but i still think I can make it at a fiver a night which is not too bad. many of us have to pay that for car parking for the day.
