    Hi All,

    Well, after 6 years of wandering around Europe & the UK with our Autotrail Dakota, we've sold up & become 'tuggers'.

    Well not exactly. We like Cabopino so much that we have decided to buy DSCN2022.JPG DSCN2271.JPG a Hobby 720 & set up shop on a semi-permanent basis on the campsite. I will NOT be towing this monster. We have a large awning & plan to spend 9-10 months of the year in S Spain.

    If we want to travel, then we can cruise or pop down to Malaga Airport. DSCN2022.JPG DSCN2271.JPG DSCN2289.JPG DSCN2290.JPG DSCN2312.JPG

    I would like to than everyone who has given such good & useful advice on this forum & also thanks to those who read the blog. We had 100,000 hits. However, that will now cease.

    Thanks to Jim & Sian and everyone we have met thru MHF.

    We'll keep our subscription - maybe we'll get another van one of these days.

    Kind regards to all

    Bill & Carole

    Good luck with the next chapter Bill and Carol, once you have found what you like why not. (y)

    We have a caravan in Spain, but after about 5 months we find its time to carry on travelling. ;) :ROFLMAO:

    So we went down the panel van route, and great car in Spain and perfect for touring when we leave. :D

    All the best Bob and Janie.

    We had a house near Cabopino, its a nice place and well situated for Malaga, Marbella, Fuengirola, etc. Buses are cheap and frequent too.
    Best of luck to you both.

    As Bill and Shirl were setting up we were moving off.

    After 7 seasons at Cabo we are now winter homeless.

    I expect we will find our way down to the Marbella area during the winter, but as tuggers.

    Strange how things change, from a Tugger back to a Tugger with a few Motorhomes in between.


    Keep the Wine and Beer chilled Bill and Shirl, as you might just get a visitation.

    Pete.
