I will be doing an A-Z Blogging Challenge this April. I will save all of the posts onto a separate tab at the top of my blog. I will be writing some fiction posts which will hopefully link together. Don’t worry, I won’t stop blogging about Edna, but I thought it was time to do some writing in this Camping and Writing blog. I hope you’ll take a peek. I’m a little nervous about this.
Now I have a VW Camper Van other Camper Vans, particularly VWs will often wave as we go past or sometimes hoot their horn. This is lovely and the children think it is great too. We feel like we’re part of a special club. However, there are some difficulties with this. There are a lot of VW vans around. They seem to fall into three categories – normal vans, often owned by plumbers or small businesses, people carriers with lots of seats and camper vans. We are quite new to this though and often it is quite difficult to tell whether first of all a van is a VW and then if it’s a camper rather than a people carrier or tradesman. This is especially true when one is driving towards you on the opposite side of the road. You have to make a split decision, do I wave or not. So the past few weeks has had me waving at quite a few random people who after I have passed I have realised weren’t camper vans. I am getting better at doing this, though I should remember only to do it in the Camper and not when I’m driving the husband’s car. I tend to look for the roof now, it seems to be the easiest thing to spot from the front, but just in case, if you’re a plumber in a VW van watch out for me. I’ll be the one waving enthusiastically in a Camper Van called Edna.
