What could possibly go wrong? I had had the van a week, by then I surely should have had all the gadgets and workings of it down pat. I had the address for the campsite; all our clothing was packed, we even had food.

There’s always that mystery moment with Google maps when you’re planning you get the estimated time, then like a lucky dip as you enter your postcode and the real travel time comes up it’s either happiness or disappointment. Now, this is usually a minor addition to the journey time, unless it’s bank holiday weekend, which of course this was.

As always I forgot a few things, a couple of things went wrong, but what can I say, every day a school day right!?!
