Well it`s been a long time since we moved but Sunday morning will see us moving all be it slowly in a northerly direction.
The first thing to be done is to pass through Springwell Lock before it closes on Monday. We then will have to moor up for a few days to await the opening of Rickmansworth Lock on the 19th.
Between here and the Milton Keynes closure that is in force now untill Mar 16th (68 days) there are 14 other closures most of which are to replace lock gates. A lot of these closures will be open by the time we reach them.
Once we have passed through Ricky the next closure will be just pass Cassiobury Park Watford on the 29th jan. If we don`t get through it will mean a wait of 2 weeks. At this point we will study the timetable of closures and plan the next few moves.
So folks it`s back over old ground but hey i really don`t mind it`s just the pure freedom i enjoy and summers on the way, each day now that old sunset gets a little later.
Wales is our destination via Birmingham hopefully after Easter and before the holiday season starts as the Llangollen gets busy in the summer season.
So folks if i am coming near to you please don`t hesitate to E Mail and you will be welcome to come aboard and have a cuppa at the new dinette.

The Dinette in day mode room for 4 people to dine. The seat nearest the camera has 2 drawers fitted but unlike the other seat has no back rest. The idea of this is that people can sit facing into the saloon. Below the other seat is a lift up lid giving access to a large storage area ideal for bedding plus much more. The table has been lifted out the leg folded under it and the table then rests on 2 supports between the 2 seats to create a double bed, ideal for visitors.
