For essential travel hopefully.
Yes we do consider it essential. We help an elderly aunt who at 86 will be have her movements severely restricted. We will put her in the Cali, take a meal with us, take a run, park up somewhere with a view and give her a break from the house to save her sanity.

We have some of the most beautiful coastline and countryside in this country.

We will certainly be using our Cali to get out and about during this period.

Long walks and time away is what it is all about....a bit of fresh air and exercise thrown in too!

Just be sensible around any crowds.

Take your own food and be prepared to not use public facilities too often.
Correct, you can find isolation in lots of places particularly early or late in the day.

I’m currently finding isolation in my house with my missus nelly the dog and our 5 year old who has a cold which has morphed in a cough. Not allowed to go to school now.advised by work (both of us mrs gas works on a Tuesday) that we now need to self isolate for 14 days.

So far cut the grass pulled some weeds fielded loads of calls from work mates telling me how lucky I am to have 2 weeks off but currently not feeling that feeling. Oh and Dylis the bus is in the shop having a light repaired on the kitchen unit so can’t get out to the forest for a walk away from the general population

Hi all.

As it looks like we are heading towards non essential travel measures, I am now thinking of sorning our Cali at the end of the month as it is not one of our daily drivers and it looks like we wont be able to use it for leisure. Our other cars have a zero or exempt tax rates so no point in sorning them. Is anyone else thinking they might do the same. I suppose the question will be what the restrictions will be and how long they stay in place.

But don’t you just enjoy driving it? Go for a cruise once in a while. In fact, since this awful period has started we’ve gone out for picnics in the Cali, including today, just to get out of the house for half an hour but avoiding cafes etc.

Knowing my luck I'd end up on top of one of those extra long pole vaulting poles with my vertigo.
Ohhhhhhh vertigo don’t go there,,,,
just had a bout myself :(
Loose eyes in my head when walking sent me green the worst feeling .....not your standard vertigo apparently.
Betahistine did the trick!!!!!

Isn't the advice on non-essential travel referring to public transport, due to the risk of infection transmission on buses, trains and planes? Driving in a Cali isn't in itself going to increase the transmission, it just depends on what you do if you get out. Looking at the Caravan and Motorhome Club website, their campsites are still one, so I have been wondering if it is an issue to go to one. The main risk would be infection transmission in the wash areas and kitchens.

You'll probably have them all to yourself as the great whites use their own facilities. Just more rumbling of water and waste carriers.
