    Hi we've just started this game. Through illness over the last 3 years my husband decided he didn't want me to tow the van. So I bought a camper van. We can now go to see our grand children in Swansea and hopefully our other son in Norway. We were very active until Parkinson's and my funny heart has tried to stop us I'm still trying to get back into the kayak, and I'll try to get him back on his bake as soon as the van has got its new gear box. We went to scatter the ashes of 2 very fine people on Dartmoor last week. Then beetled down to the Gower to see our grand kids. We should be on our way to Dover right now BUT the gear box was growling too much to travel 3600 miles to and from Voss in Norway Have to wait until next year now.

    will it be worth paying for the re-furbished gear box.

    Hello and welcome. Cannot help about the gear box but wish you lots of happy miles once you have got it fixed.

    Yes you lot are friendly. Just like the Rugby Parkinson's group we met up last year. Not heard about the van yet, so can't plan a trip.
