    Well, we survived. Had a few issues with the van on collection, but managed to get everything satisfactory so we could proceed.
    Had a cautious initial drive of about 40 miles to Smeatons Lakes, near Newark on Trent. Driving an automatic after many years was a challenge in itself, but proved enjoyable after a short while. Arrived at the site, set up and spent the next 4 days fishing and using everything we could on the van.
    Happy campers to say the least. Drive back to Bristol was uneventful, and putting the fulll cover on for the first time was something of a minor challenge. This was after educating my wife that just waving your hand left and right rapidly is no indication to a driver reversing a van with little practise is of no help whatsoever. Having smashed the passenger mirror on a parked Argos delivery van in Birmingham on the way home didn’t help the cause either.
    We are now looking to get a short weekend away somewhere local in a few weeks time.
