In the past, at this time of the year, many of us would be looking forward to our expensive overseas holiday.  But with the credit crunch biting more and more into our disposable income many of us are searching for cheaper alternatives ways to get our R&R.   This is why camping has become so popular this year and I am willing to bet for the next few years at least.
