Do you have to pass an I.Q. test before they allow you to buy one?

The Orian era didn't last very long (some say thank goodness) and some of the Orian models hardly sold at all.

Followed an Orion quite some way down the A49 from Shrewsbury to Ludlow today.
An 08 model in really good nick, with the blue bumpers and plinths.
Nuevogirl commented on how slim the van looked, until I pointed out it has exactly the same body as ours.

We were in Ludlow today but didn't see an Orian or a Nuevo. We're staying at Wheathill, about 7 miles up the Bridgnorth road on the slopes of Titterstone Clee and overlooking Brown Clee.

We clocked that campsite when we drove up to Stafford a few years ago and thought it looked a good prospect as a base for cycling some new lanes.
I think there's a good pub locally; have you tried it?

The Three Horseshoes is right next door and has three local ales on tap. Food is good, solid pub grub at decent prices. Decor of dining room a bit odd but all in all an excellent experience. It must be, we've eaten there three times. Views are fabulous. Site is currently having another dozen pitches added to the west, a wide expanse of mud is gradually taking shape. Dog area is brilliant, four separate meadows for them to run in. Lee and family own the static site further up the hill.

Thanks Dave, we'll pencil that it for a definite visit then (the site that is, as well as the pub biggrin ).
