i take it ken you will be draining the pool as well so theres no need for bob and me to come up for a swim.
never mind we shall always be around another winter , we hope .
shant tell where you are i,ll keep it secret if your not draining the swimming pool leave the hot water on please.
Doesn't sound like fun to me, it sounds stressful! Is it just a particular region?
We use Aires and camper stops to get water and dump our toilet. These are not expensive in fact some you only pay for the water used. Others it is cheaper to stay the night and use the dump facility twice that just call in to dump (ie. Calnegre Camper stop). We also use Fuentes for water inland.
As for Ken's idea of a meet. Camper stops such as Auto Caravanas Vera (ACVera on a paddle and tennis complex)) are very cheap if you stay for a few days. Also useful for a battery top up on EHU. New Year it is always very full there but otherwise there would be bags of space.
The Aire in Cartagena is right opposite EROSKI and there is also a laundrette in the Rembla complex. The Aire offers free parking and toilet dump with water at 2 Euro for 10mins (about 100 litres). An overnight stop here 11pm to 8 am is 10 Euro and you are in a locked compound and EHU. Space for about 10 vans on EHU plus others.
The Camper stop at Los Delores (also near Cartagena) is also very good and offers cheaper rates for more than a few days. Laundry available and very popular with users. Good bus services into Cartagena from both of these locations if you like cities.
We met up with Alan, Bob, Snail, Donna and Phil and others, one Christmas at a beach location, but that has now been fenced off.
Carol, Spain has 17 autonomous regions and each town hall has its own rules and has police to enforce them. Camping anywhere other than on an official caravan site is unlawful in most of Spain, but some regions are not a zealous as other in the enforcement.
Snail and ourselves parked at an empty car park at Torrenostra one evening, and had tickets on our windows in the morning, informing us it was against the local law for motorhomes to park there overnight. We pulled off the car park onto a roadside parking bay on the other side of the road, beside an un-built building plot and were OK. The car park remained empty the whole time we were there. There was boat launching facilities off this car park, but trailers could not be left there either. Local rules enforced by local police.
I love little birds. I'm looking forward to it.
We're leaving Aberdeen 4th October heading to Spain & Portugal for winter before venturing further East next Spring & Summer. Plan on returning to the UK about September 2016 subject to budgetary constraints (running out of money)
Appreciate all the info and advice. Hope to meet some of you on the road.
Thanks again for all the info.
