Outdoor 2016: Europe’s largest outdoors industry trade show Part 3

Outdoor 2016: Europe’s largest outdoors industry show Part 2

A Welsh road trip... continued

Our road trip in numbers: 575 miles, nine campsites, four days, two motorhomes, two tents, one memorable camping adventure.

To pick up the story where our Simon McGrath left off, I write this blog from the grassy late arrivals area at Ebury Hill, the final campsite in our whistlestop tour of the Club’s Welsh sites, and those English sites near its borders.
