Back in April, I booked the Brighton Breeze ticket and a hotel for the weekend, but since then I have bought the van. Never mind, it is a very nice hotel with a sea view so I might as well enjoy it.
The sea front is empty on Friday afternoon. Only a bay window is there on Madeira drive.
It is time to contact Neil the president of the SSVC. He told me that I could leave the Kombi nearby at the campsite, where I know it will be safe overnight. I come back to the hotel to chill out for the evening.
Saturday morning 7a.m, time to pick up the van, I think I am the only one awake at this time of the morning in Brighton. By the time I came back to Madeira drive a few vans are already there. I park mine, and people are starting to arrive in a constant stream.
By lunch time the site is full, about 1000 Vans are there, it's amazing.
I have put a video on You Tube. Click on the Logo and Have a look.
A lot of trade stands are there as well, it is a very good atmosphere. And it's incredible to see so many vans on display in one road.
