    Not much bed space, but quite energy efficient, I imagine! We're all heading that way ….

    Ikea, that’s what we did with our Cali today.
    Camping gear out, bench folded down and single rear seat fitted so the front passenger could be pushed forward to get the 2.4m long flat pack in.

    Bala lake, great site right on the lake. Take a Steam train into Bala town, which has the best ice cream shop in the world and then work it off with a nice walk back along the hillside with great views across the lake. Perfect!

    What were the contact details for this site please? We live not far away and this looks like a lovely 'quick night away throw a bottle of wine in the van' site!

    As you can see on the map and photos the train leaves Llangower and runs to Bala, we walked back along the top of the hills with great views down to the lake. It’s all signed up quite well. Or you could take your bikes and cycle back.

    Campsite is really good with very clean facilities but gets booked up quickly. You can also launch your SUP or kayaks from the shores.

    Nice to have a campfire on the shore in the evening and watch the sunset....

    My drive has been busier than a dealers forecourt often is, today.

    Packing to get away tomorrow and 3 separate occasions people asked about the Cali so got a look round. One was a friend who hired one for three months a year ago and now looking t buy, one from my neighbour over the road who puts my bins out for me on mondays when I am away, and hoping to talk hubby into wanting one and once two complete strangers walking their dog down to the beach, stopped to tell me how beautiful Alfie was and confessed to owning a Bilbo years ago.

    At least I know the roof works, it's been up and down three times :D

    Guess they may be useful as an aid for the BIAB scenario. I won’t publish any feedback on that!

    Thanks to a very helpful tip from @Loz this is what I use for shutting the door quietly. A small Dent Puller from Ebay. I wonder if people might mistake yours for a phone @EddieEagle

    Ah ha, the price was right and I supported the charity too.
    Agree, not very pretty.
    Could be mistaken for a defibrillator ?
