    Friends of mine have just come back from 6 months away in spain and portugal, and they have just mentioned that they met some funsters, but they cant remember there names.

    My mates van had the problem with the wheel bearing and they had an old hymer 694. Annette also gave you a load of books.

    Was this you?

    Well it was - and it wasn't !! LOL

    Pete (Trophychap) and I were on the aire in Caceres at that very time, your friends were parked 'on the side' in the 'Bus Parking' and because of being stuck there until the local Ford dealer could have the van in and mend it, asked if we were perchance moving soon, so they could move and be on the actual aire so hopefully they wouldn’t get harangued to move.

    We were with another couple at the time – whom we had met on the aire at Capbreton in May 2013. They are fulltimers and we each went our separate ways.

    Meanwhile some time later, we went to Portugal over Xmas and New Year and in early March we were meandering back through Spain, sat at Caceres for the night and whose face should appear round our van, than the chap who we had met at Capbreton. They were also on their way to Calais for the ferry. That evening we agreed to meander back together, ish.

    It made a really nice change having company along the way although none of us want to make a habit out of it – it suited us all at the time.

    Anyway – it was Jez, the other lady, who your friend handed the books over to. (Keith & Jez) Pete and I both have Kindles and have given up books in the motorhome LOL cos they hit you in the face when they fall out of lockers LOL and at a rate of about a book a day each when the weather is inclement, you can’t carry enough of em.

    We thought they seemed nice people, and hope they got the wheel bearing sorted, cos he did say they were sposed to have already had it mended in Portugal but clearly whoever did it, didn’t make a very good job !
