First Outing

Posted 11/12/2011

Last Sunday (whilst still feeling very groggy from my works Christmas Party the night before!) we got up to go on our first real outing in the motorhome. Ryan's brother wanted to test out his new motorbike so Ryan borrowed a bike from a friend and we took them to Whaddon motocross track for the day.

It was just nice to be able to spend some time pottering around, making tea and bacon sandwiches on the hob for the first time! As it was the last meeting of the year at that track before they close for winter we were all very grateful of somewhere warm and dry to relax in. We hadn't filled the water tank up yet as we don't want the water going stagnant whilst not in use so we had Ryan's 'Camel pack' hiking water carrier hung over the sink for hand washing etc, though when I had to use the on site 'facilities' I wished we already had a nice loo installed! Very grim :S
I also took advantage of the spare time and began unscrewing the curtain rail from around the rear bunks :)
So Ryan and his brothers sped around a muddy field and around the various tracks all day (heaven on Earth for him!) and when the light was all but gone we towed the bikes home again with yet more ideas...
