    Villedieu des Poeles, not sure if the photo is attached. Lovely place, they set off a firework display to welcome us as we drove in, and churchbells to send us off on our way the next morning.

    Our investigations last week to establish a good place to park up overnight in Inverness near the river paid off, as we were able to use this location on 31st Dec to attend the Red Hot Highland Fling Hogmanay event that took place in the Northern Meeting Park. Some super acts, especially Calum Mackenzie Jones and The Trad Project,Attachment 69178
    and about 15000 people were there; we were about 5 rows back from the stage and had a super view of everything. Well done Inverness for putting this on for another year, and what a fantastic fireworks display at the end!!

    Up fairly early the next morning and away down the A9 to Ralia Cafe near Newtonmore for breakfast; too early to overnight here this time, and we on a mission to visit family in Dundee and then Bathgate, so we had our first 2019 overnight at Perth car park instead to score 1/1 for this year.

    Pretty cold here that night and we lost our water when the van went below 5 deg inside during the night (-5 outside) to trip the frost protection on the water boiler; good job it was only a short run on to Bathgate where we stayed for another couple of nights without incident.

    1/1 Bowness.

    We stopped here for 2 nights but went to the Langdales during the day for a walk and got the same pitch when we returned for the second night. I made the mistake of parking under the big tree the first night. I looked at it and thought, well It's not raining and there's no leaves on it how bad can it be. 3 'o' clock in the morning we moved up a couple of pitches.20190113_094135.jpg

    Pleased this has carried on having missed most of last year due to the van build taking longer and a few other issues preventing me getting away as much as I wanted, but the aim is defo to do the challenge this year.
    1/1 Spent last night at Newbiggin Common, quite simply the windiest wildest night I've ever spent anywhere, including my days in the Military, but thoroughly enjoyable. Roll on February.

    1/1

    Let's try again this year:

    First one was last Saturday at the Sir Walter Tyrrell pub in the New Forest.

    Last year, despite having a full time job, I managed 104 nights in the bongo, of which 15 were wild camping! None of the nights were work-related. Is that impressive or what?
