    There are many funsters either out there now or on their way ,I am sure they will keep a good lookout for them.

    S'only 48 hours. We often go longer than that without worrying about folk knowing where we are.

    I think they are panicking to early they could be somewhere with no phone signal at all, we try to find places like that. It's only been three days we go a week at a time or more without calling home.
    Hope they are safe sure they will be(y)

    I'm sure they are parked up in a little quiet spot thinking to themselves, what bliss is this, no phone no internet and a glass of wine and a great view.
    Bet the kids give them a rollicking when they get hold of them lol.

    The reason I posted this was that any funsters travelling in the area could keep an eye out for them.
    three days isn't that long really, maybe they call home everyday & the family are worried.

    3 days isn't long at all but the report does say that they have phoned every day since they travelled in July. I suppose that's why they have flagged it. The police are taking it seriously so I that's worrying for me. I hope they are found safe and soon.

    Agreed, makes a welcome change from disasters in Italy, terrorists and politics.

    They should be flogged for getting everyone worried NOT :sleep:

    They can repent and stump up £15 for FUN and keep in touch with the world!

    To be fair you could understand The Daily Mail getting concerned about a couple losing contact with home for 48 hours whilst touring Normandy. It's a wild and untamed place where there was a war only 72 years ago, and it's foreign.

    That's good news... (y)

    However..
    Th problem starts when people keep in touch every day when in fact there is no need to .. then when you don't call people panic ..

    We went 'away' for almost a year and people thought we were lost.. questions raised on forums.. etc.. no internet, mobile for emergency use only.. which we never used.

    When we go away now we tell people we won't be making contact unless we have a problem .. we go away to get away.. not to keep touching base everyday.

    When Chaz goes away to Cadet camp for 10 days we don't hear from her until she's on the coach coming home.. no news.. is good news..
