    You guys are hilarious “ Tom D Harry” ! You have made it onto my YouTube list of 3 x Van life to follow, 1- Life is too short; 2- Wee Broon Van; 3- GetawayGeese 👍✅

  2. BLAKE'S 4 ON TOUR. Motorhome Adventures on May 22, 2023 at 12:28 pm

    🤣🤣🤣Tom, Dick and Harry!!!!!! 🤣🤣🤣
    The castle was closed for the rest of the season when we went there a few weeks ago. Will have to go back again!
    Nice place though!
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Lynda Like on May 22, 2023 at 12:29 pm

    Thank you both for another wonderful vlog of our little site, we are over the moon with your promotion of Dark Orchard, Hay on Wye and the Castle which we also think is fabulous. Duggans the cake and tart makers on the market have now moved in to a stall in town so goodies are now available every day!!! A new carving has been added this week to the Bailey Walk sculptures, a Red Kite. so a perfect excuse to come back in 2023 to check them out. I’m not entirely sure the goodies were for sharing but you are forgiven Stew for you great photos and footage. We loved the TD & H footage would love to know where you were as that looked a fabulous location. Looking forward to the next vlog😀😀

  4. John Armstrong on May 22, 2023 at 12:29 pm

    another great video, that site looks wonderful and so peaceful. Dick oops sorry Stew how was the wrap? Glad all the batteries things worked out good for you. looking forward to your next adventure. ATB

  5. The Road Two Spoons on May 22, 2023 at 12:31 pm

    Great video guys, thanks for the shout out too! Happy travels ✌️

  6. Colin Black on May 22, 2023 at 12:38 pm

    Great video Stew and Jane, I loved south Wales when I was a lorry driver, there was a small lorry park near Hay on Wye I used to stop at, and in the summer I walked along to a lovely old pub for an after-dinner pint. I can see how those seven days would’ve relaxed you, I was chilled out just watching you two. Keep up the good work, or relaxation.

  7. atcautoelec on May 22, 2023 at 12:38 pm

    Classic Jane moment with her T D & H at Stew’s expense! So pleased to hear how well the leisure battery set up copes with the electrical loads without hook up and a good tip with keeping the fridge area cool on very hot days, well done guys. Hay tourist info people must be well chuffed with the excellent promo work.

  8. Ellie and Graham - Wizard in the Wild on May 22, 2023 at 12:44 pm

    Tom “Dick” and Harry! Nice little site. Good way to test your electric. Like the power banks for the cameras. That was a nice van build. Pleased you got to go to the castle. We love Rummykub.🤣 solar really helps doesn’t it? Safe travels both

  9. Mark Mangan on May 22, 2023 at 12:48 pm

    Great vid folks, very enjoyable and some lovely scenery 😎😊👍

  10. Laurence Rutherford on May 22, 2023 at 12:49 pm

    Nice one guys.. I would have thought a 110ah lithium and 120w solar would last almost indefinitely in summer especially with the poweoak as well. Looking forward to the Ireland stuff. Safe travels.

  11. Rhys Statham on May 22, 2023 at 12:52 pm

    Pity you didn’t visit Hay Bluff stunning views not to far from your campsite if ever you come back check it out.

  12. Anthony Hughes on May 22, 2023 at 1:00 pm

    Hay on wye …Win win
    The lovely Jane….win win win

    Very enjoyable! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

  13. Snoopy on May 22, 2023 at 1:01 pm

    Great drone shots. Always good to see in vlogs. Have you thought about Ecoflow power stations. Very fast charging, via solar or mains. Often less than an hour via mains. Another enjoyable, informative video. Still binge watching. 🤦🏻‍♂️

  14. Lorri Miller on May 22, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    Jane – you have beautiful eyes! And your sense of humor with the Tom, Dick and Harry comment was hilarious

  15. Dappled Days on May 22, 2023 at 1:06 pm

    Enjoyed that, only ever been to Hay for the festival a couple of times. It’s so busy then. Must go to look round the castle and explore the town when it’s more peaceful.

  16. R S on May 22, 2023 at 1:10 pm

    My wife says I have a physique like Stew. I’m hoping it’s a compliment but I’m not sure as she thinks it’s quite amusing.

  17. Wee Broon Van on May 22, 2023 at 1:11 pm

    Tom, Dick & Harry 🤣. Battery test 👍. Great little site, must visit that some time. Looking forward to your next trip.

  18. Steve Bell on May 22, 2023 at 1:11 pm

    Leave janes twix alone stu 👍you been fishing at Coalport yet ? Brewery stretch ?

  19. Patricia Hackman on May 22, 2023 at 1:11 pm

    Most enjoyable, thankyou. Love Hay on Wye, but never visited the castle, so must do next time ! It’s such an interesting little place, especially on market days.

  20. Roaming in Raymond Motorhome Adventures on May 22, 2023 at 1:13 pm

    Looks a very peaceful campsite. We couldn’t get parked up last time we tried to go to Hay on Wye so a site in walking distance would be really good so will look it up. We don’t have a power bank, although I do keep saying we need one but Karl says we don’t.🙄 I did think with using the Power Oak your batteries would be fine. We managed 3 days in winter without moving and only have 2 AGM 95ah batteries and we survived, just about lol. I knew Jane would say Stew was Dick to the Tom, Dick and Harry trio.😆

  21. Linda O on May 22, 2023 at 1:14 pm

    Oh Jane…you are cheeky! 😂😂enjoyed the vlog. Not had a twix in a long time.. now you have put me in the notion and it’s nearly 9 pm! Looking forward to your next vlog!

  22. A Dog A Day on May 22, 2023 at 1:16 pm

    Good news about the battery life. Makes off-grid camping much less stressful when you’re never worrying about charge. And, importantly, it means if you find a great wild spot you’re under no pressure to move on! Lovely campsite. Can you fish in the river or is it private?

  23. Life is too short on May 22, 2023 at 1:20 pm

    We enjoyed that and you certainly did a good job promoting Hay-on-Wye. The food from the market looked delicious 😋 You both looked very relaxed on that CL and the battery set up worked well. Look forward to your next trip 🤗❤️

  24. CamperVanya Sue - Vanlife UK on May 22, 2023 at 1:23 pm

    I was looking forward to seeing how you went on here, and you managed easily. I’ve also been considering my power options, lithium/solar/portable power banks, to allow for more off grid camping for longer periods and use of a laptop, etc. You look to have a really great set up now both tech wise and pitch up wise, and both looked really relaxed at such a lovely site. Great to see. Some lovely drone flying over and along the river. I’ll check out the couple’s channel you mention. Glad the little fridge tip was useful & thank you for the mention 🙏. Take care both 😊
