Midweek escape to Snowdonia

Postby jes*b » 14 Mar 2014, 16:34

Took advantage of the weather window to visit North Wales. dropped in on Aidan and then headed into the National Park to get a bit out of the way. Walked Snowdon the quiet route without a cloud in the sky. 800 mile round trip and a bit of a shakedown for the camping side of things

Nice one Jes! One of my favourite bits of the UK! How did the Westy manage on the camping front then?

for two people its spot on. the dogs kept us warm at night but ran up the ebber just for good measure to check it. really like the table arrangement. cracked my head a few times on the extra light thats been added below the rear cupboard so thats on its way. also you loose the storage space that is offered by that cupboard as it now houses the air con so will look to gain that back somehow. Gas on the fridge is iffy as well so maybe look for an upgrade there in future. The insulated windows really cut down on the condensation judging but the amount on the glass at the front.
Leaving aside the obvious debate it drove like a dream - a world away from the JX. Powerful, smooth and handled the climbs without continual changes. very relaxing.

Same problem here - we've bitten the bullet and gone the Waeco CR 50 / Sterling route.
