We are just back from our second trip so far this year. We had 4 nights at Pembrey C+MC site where the facilities are closed. It hasn't been an issue to us really. Prior to the current situation I used to use on-site facilities, preferring to keep the on board ones for my wife to use. Also unless you have a fully serviced pitch, it meant more work for me filling up with water and emptying the grey. We had a fully service pitch at Pembrey so no worries there.
Oh, it also means emptying the toilet cassette daily as well as opposed to every other day, in normal times.
All we have done is adjust our daily routine really. The heating and water come on at 'early o'clock' on the timer so we have it piping hot by 8am. i then take first shower and brush my teeth etc. Mrs GMJ then gets up and has a coffee and breakfast by which time the water has heated up for her shower.
It hasn't thrown us out at all really. Prior to these 2 trips I had only used the shower once I think but I have been impressed thus far. We have a good sized cubicle plus the pressure is good and the water red hot.
We had a lovely trip away. the weather was foul on Monday when we left home to get to site and didn't relent all day. The next 3 days were cold but mainly rain free so we managed to get out on our ebikes all 3 days. As I had forgotten to pack the battery chargers I had to use mine in manual mode so as to save the battery for Mrs GMJ's use. Tbh it worked out fine as it is mostly flat in the country park and on the Millennium Coast path.
Anyway, our next trip away is next Friday. we are off to Cardiff for 3 nights and then Cirencester for 11.
