Travels and Camping

Just back from a trip to Cavan, Leitrim and Down visiting friends and generally having a great time camping. Here’s a photo taken at my friends place, off the grid in Cavan.
This picture is taken from a mobile home on his land, looking down into the forestry land where I was set up with the van. The mobile has a wood burning stove for winter heat as well as cooking, hot water etc. His cottage also has solar power (3 x 70 watt panels) and there is a compost toilet in the woods. It’s always been one of my favourite destinations to get away from city life.
I set up my awning when camping in the woods now, and it’s been great for hanging out wet clothes to dry. It rained quite a bit there and it was like having another room – the plastic awning extends out, doubling the width of the van. I have plans to use tarps to close in the ends too now – lets see how that goes…
