It would be great to have feedback on the caravan sites and how the safety measures are working. We will be watching for the next two weeks to see how safe the sites are before we decide to start touring again.  Maybe a lot of people will put reviews on individual caravan sites.

Unfortunately you can't educate people who don't do rules.

Never failed either here or over there. Long journeys over there done on Sundays.  On holiday so time to kill not get killed by time

The M5 traffic cameras seem to show good traffic flow, Exeter looks busier as it's a junction to various areas A good thing that site arrivals have been staggered. It sounds as though camp sites have had plenty of bookings but not totally overwhelmed but hotels etc aren't doing quite as well.

Morning

I'll be on here with some feedback as the week goes on. I guess it's going to be a good while before folks get used to things. For example, we have a 50% reduction in shared facilities to allow for social distancing and the extra cleaning regime in place so there will be queues, no shop, a one in one out at reception to name a few.

Some things don't change though, there's 2 outfits outside the gate now (6.15) Happy Days

2 points Peedee

1 any journey with Birmingham  involved defies acurate   timing

2  I have yet to to have sat nav predict anything like an accurate time until the last few miles.

However on journeys I have done before on the continent  I can tell to a few minutes even on a long trip.

Like I say the sat nav s not set up accurately then or it is a very poor one. Mine displays ETA even if I have the vehicle/road speeds set wrongly. I can therefore slow down or pull into a layby to ensure I arrive as required or even speed up to a certain degree. Even without a sat nav I have a very good idea of my average speed on a journey and a quick calculation will give me my ETA as well as miles from destination as indicated on a signpost.

In this day and age there are no excuses for ariving early.

We have to travel 120 miles West on mainly single carriageway roads before we turn North.  The calculation is fairly simple mileage to destination say 250 miles divided by what I believe my average speed is likely to be i.e. 40 miles per hour =  6.5 hrs, not rocket science.  If we stop for breakfast in the American diner on the A1 then add an hour.  As Mrs One tows we share the driving

Yes, I can usually do the same. I would not like to predict journey times to South Coast today though, and especially with a 12 O'clock arrival time for example. Would anybody? Nor would I be confident of finding a layby etc near the destination

"we always allow more time"

That's obviously what those who arrived early have done. Provided the ones waiting have the first slots and there is room to park, no problem.
