What's the shortest distance you have ever travelled to a site for a couple of nights away , in my case it is just over an hour, i was at the caravan this morning just doing a couple of jobs when a Couple came to collect their caravan, I said going anywhere nice and they said to the golf course which takes about thirty caravans and is just five minutes away, the reason of this mini holiday was because being their new caravan the kids could not wait to go away in it.

Did a C&CC THS ten minutes (walking) from home about 5 minutes by Car as I have to take the anti-clockwise route away from the house.

Any easy way to see what a THS was as we had not been to one before. Stayed one night.

Edit. Checked on Google maps it’s 0.3 miles

About 15 years ago my sister and b-I-l thought they would try caravanning so they bought a brand new van and put it on a storage pitch at Alderstead Heath site. There they made day trips to it but went home at night - 10 miles away. Every three months they had to move it so they hitched up and travelled to the touring pitches on the site. They left it there for a few days before moving it back again. After b-I-l died the caravan was sold with the beds never having been slept on, the toilet, shower and fridge never having been used - only the hob to make a cup of tea. How crazy was that?

1/2 mile, - (less as the crow flies) Caravan Club rally on our village playing field (35 years ago), sports practice for the kids. Only way our kids could participate was to be on the rally, so I agreed to take the van for them and mother and I would have a w/e at home myself. Alot of our friends were there, weather was absolutely gorgeous finished up spending the w/e there. Superb w/e, weather brilliant, grass same colour as 400 miles away! - Saturday night social in the village hall, parked the car on our own drive, 100 yds away. Really appreciated the 'long tow' home on the Sunday evening.

About two miles for me. Years ago, coming home from work, I saw a chap I know walking along the road. Knowing he wasnt local I stopped to see if he needed a lift. It turned out he was running a rally at the next village had just walked to the shop. He persuaded me to go and get SWMBO and the van and join them.
This of course back in the days when I thought rallying might be a good idea.

It's meet up to put faces to names, SWMBO was dubious at first, but after three, its great. Normally a Saturday night meal in a pub or club house the rest of the time is just chilling and banter, and doing your own thing.
Surely this years, Woosie King will give the meet up caravan site.
All welcome.

Buckman. Why not come to this year's Woosie meet up. Referred to as the Woosiefest. You would be most welcome. Trawl the more recent pages of the Woosie Club thread in chit chat and you will get the idea.

Back to the OP. We TRAVELLED on foot (I've seen the contribution from Kev and Hutch) from our back door to the drive for a night in the van on two previous Christmases.

FAO Buckman, you're asking about the 'Woosies', the following are already booked in to the next 'fest'
WOOsiefest.jpg

As you can see there are already 9 couples booked in and if you follow the site link it is a very nice site to meet up on. In the 'picturesque county of Lincolnshire, handy for several seaside resorts and some lovely market towns and wolds countryside.
http://woodthorpeleisurepark.com/
The easiest way to get an idea of us is to follow the Woosies thread in chit chat.
If you should choose to join us , make your own reservations with the site. Our rules are very simple, -- there aren't any! -- just common decency.
