      ... in their UK Motorhome around Scotland for 6 months. They had just recently traveled the States in their USA Motorhome and, over a few wines, gave us lots of tips about travelling there next year. However, as we tried to get to sleep later, the howling wind and rain, coupled with the buffeting wind rocking the truck, caused us to move camp back to the village at 10.30 ...
