Hey Phil, I would love to but have certain impracticalities at the moment, in order :-

Kids

A wife that wants beach holidays

Not enough disposable income

So for me it's a static caravan in Devon!!

Oh, and we're going here in June, I get the feeling I will see little of my 10 year old during the day..

Fuck all this year, on the move again, but buying a property. 

We might get away for a cottage holiday at Easter, but doubtful. I quite fancy a cycle holiday! 

Always 2018!!

We're doing seven nights at the Rownhams Services resort.

We did three there last year but it wasn't really long enough to explore the whole service area.

The food's always good, there's always something to see, and the kids love paddling in trucker piss.

We looked at Winchester Services but it's a bit too foresty for our liking.

 We were thinking of doing a day trip to Fleet services but I hear most of it burnt down. Actually, that'll improve the experience.

Right,  must book a,day off

 Been there, done that. One day you'll be able to upgrade to Eurocamp that was awesome at that time

Two days in Liverpool, next week.

I have a feeling it will either be very depressing or one of the best times ever and will be decided by 22 men i don't know.

 Been there, done that. One day you'll be able to upgrade to Eurocamp that was awesome at that time

We were looking at that, around £500 for a week for a basic caravan which is maybe £200 cheaper than in the UK. Then checked the ferry prices........£500 return!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Yeah but that is because THE MAN can rip you off because they passed Laws that force you to take Holidays WHEN THEY WANT YOU TO so that they can inflate the prices #Schoolholidays.

I guess I was lucky, kids were Eurocamp age 15-20+ years ago and I didn't get shot for taking them out of a school (that I was paying for) over here.

End of the day, Kids can have as much fun in West Bay in the rain as they can in Southern France in 35C heat mid summer.

Just need to find the right deal on the right Ferry Link (eg you might have to go to skatesmuff to catch a Ferry) ;)
