Arrived in Heathrow, organised coach+train to Preston, picked up the Camper, organised insurance – sounds simple but this took a day and a bit (it certainly wasnt simple! Farken fark fark). The insurance providers we had researched suddenly now would not insure with a international drivers license
We had a pub meal which was cheap and nice and experienced our first pub brawl. We think they were girls...ladettes we will call them! No one else blinked an eyelid at this brawl. Must be a common thing in the UK!
Spent the first night in the closest caravan park to Preston. We drove along some country lanes where crops were farmed, asked horse riders for directions, took a wrong road and ended up down a dirt road and into a paddock (4x4ing a camper on the first day – nice work!), but eventually found it. Not like Aussie caravan parks, this is a guys mowed backyard! Nice chap though...Ian was his name. One other camper there who was a local trying out a van he was servicing. Services: 240V power and a toilet, that is all.
