Default First trip

I took up Alex's suggestion of a few weeks ago, and went to Shieldaig
for a week. Not exactly close for a first experience (1000 mile round
trip) but worth the time it took to get there. It's a very
tourist-friendly village in a beautiful situation.
Towing took a bit of getting used to, but I was careful not to have to
reverse on the single track roads. Everything worked in the caravan,
and it was warm and dry throughout some very wet and windy days. I
barely used any gas or electricity, as I only took one battery and one
gas bottle, but it didn't really compromise my comfort, since I don't
need much on a walking/boozing trip. Met some marvellous people -
locals and visitors alike.
I discovered a few minor snags with the caravan - a dodgy door hinge,
and hooks working a bit loose, but nothing critical. Not bad for 750!
Manoeuvring it wasn't difficult despite the ground getting a bit wet
by the end of the week.

Very enjoyable!
