Splitty parks on double yellows!!!
It’s already mid may and I forgot to put up the campervan photo for this month from our calendar. This one is a beautiful D reg splitty. I’ve occasionally thought it would be nice to have the roof racks as they look great, especially with the surfboard up there. However because we have a pop top we could only fit rack on the bit over the front seats.
That in itself would look good and we will probably look out for one at some point. In the meantime it is easy to fit a surfboard or two inside our van.
Our van Betty has already been busy this season and bookings have picked up significantly from last year which was our first year in business. Most of June is already booked out and July is starting to fill up. Yay. This year we are going to fit in some trips around whenever there is a free weekend in the bookings calendar.
She has been booked for our own use for JoeFest which is our own family’s festival in Lincolnshire (tickets for Joefest available here if you want to come). After that we may send a few days down at Rhossili Bay in the Gower Peninsula which is a particular favourite of ours. We rent the surfboards from a local shop.
One thing I did notice about the calendar photo btw. They have parked on double yellow lines. I’m not aware that VW campervans are immune from parking fines but it would be nice to think that the traffic warden would spend so long just standing there admiring the view that we would have returned to the vehicle and driven off before he or she got a chance to slap on a ticket:) Dream on…
