me witchywoo, cookiemonster and mrs decided to head off to castleton camping for the weekend, on the was called off at `suprise` corner which is a bit of a tight bend just before you get to Hathersage...

lovely views

some cars do miss the bend which is not a good idea as its a bit of a drop

then we drove to Castleton to have lunch and a climb up to the castle ruins

can you spot the Karmann`s?

cool pics

 

did you always go away at weekends or is it something you've started since getting the karmann?

where do you find details for campsites open all year round, most of the ones that have websites or are in guides are normally summer only

ive only gone to shows before, i swapped a westy for a multivan as i didnt use it much, but now i met witchy i wanted to show her round our countryside, and ive drooled over karmanns for a long time now, so bit the bullet and got one, so were off out as much as possible, makes a nice change from going to the local pubs or town,

as for the sites, cookiemonsters mrs is in charge of sorting that out, but we tell her sites weve seen on our travels and try and get in those
