    On tuesday I am off on a mini Somerset tour! I am quite excited because it is going to be me, Mini Male Maggot (7) on his Decathlon and Mini Female Maggot (5) on the trailer-bike. I have managed to squeeze 3 sleeping bags a 2 man tent and stove etc on board and the kids are dead excited:biggrin:

    We sat and planned the route today, about 20 miles day one, stopping at a campsite just up the road, indoor pool and bar, Mrs Maggot is going to bring us spag bol in the evening:tongue: Then 15 or so on the second day. We planned the route not with Memory Map but by garden centres with cafes!!!!;)

    The kids wonder if completion of this tour qualifies them for membership of the CTC:biggrin:

    Sounds like a good family outing; something the kids will long treasure!
    Have a great time - hope the weather's good!
    My brother lives near Oxford and whenever I visit him I insist that we have a trip or three to the garden centres! ;)

    Just shows too that you don't need to spend a wad (Disneyland, etc.) to entertain the little 'uns!

    Hope you have a great time ;)
