    So I'm waiting at the Eurotunnel terminal in Calais, get a knock at the door...
    Turns out it's fellow Funster @stevec :)
    We've not met before, Steve was just passing and noticed my Funster sticker. What a lovely gesture to stop and say hello.

    We have only been members for about two years but have never met or seen another Funster motorhome.:cry: We display our sticker, proudly, and will certainly greet any that we meet.

    MHF is a superb site, virtual meeting place, resource, centre for humour(?), and fount of information.(y)

    I stopped for 2 nights at Canterbury Park and Ride. £6 for 2 nights with fresh, grey and black on site, plus return bus ride into the city. The place was busy, but not one other Funster. Plugged us at every opportunity I had while talking to the other owners :)

    I remember how happy I was to have come across Fun and haven't regretted it one tiny bit :)

    After all where else can you get advice from 1000's of other likeminded nutters, ops I mean enthusiasts and all for less than a trip to a costalot coffee shop for 2 coffees and a bun.....winner :Grin::dance2::drinks::hugs: :hi5:

    We've met a couple of funsters on sites, we met Ranger and his wife at the beginning of March and Wendy just before Chester, as I saw their badges in the window and thought I'd say hello.

    I always check the windscreen of MH's to see if they have a sticker. Not seen another one yet though.
    Oh, and if it was a funster at Rownhams yesterday morning, the looney with the Bernese Mountain Dog checking out your van was me! :D

    On our drive around Spain and Portugal last year we met Funsters at nearly every aire we stopped at - that sticker idea of yours was a very good one Sir @Jim ! (y)

    In my experience most travellers are very friendly .. so why wait until you see a Funster badge .. ?

    It could be a long wait..

    At the end of the day, Funster or not, we are all but ships passing in the night .. stop and say Hi .. have made a lot of friends by just saying hello to a neighbour on an aire .. and many were not Brits...

    Agree whole heartedly, and we do meet others.

    But short of saying"Are you a Funster?" and sounding like someone from a very bad spy novel, the sticker is a good way to identify fellow members.

    Of course.. a Fun badge can be useful.. I have one, and wasn't knocking it .. but i've spoken to many fellow travellers and at some point will ask if they are members of Fun or any other motorhome forum .. and been surprised how few are.. most don't use forums..

    In all my travels since joining this forum in 2007 I've yet to bump into a Funster abroad..
