    I've done it! Booked two nights at Exmoor House, Dulverton next week for my first solo trip. Not too adventurous but it's a start. Anyone else around there I would love to say hello.

    Hi and welcome Raindance.(y)
    Enjoy your first outing and I'm sure you will have many more to follow.
    I'm a little worried that your forum name may put others off wanting to be in the same area as you .... maybe Sundance would have been a better choice.;) (sorry no offence intended)

    Sorry not around there but hope you enjoy your first weekend away. It can prove to be lonely the first time as you will have time on your hands. Take a good book and pen and notebook to make a note of any questions that may arise .. Come back and tell us all how you go on ... Once New Year has passed there will be lots of us looking to meet up across the country.

    :)

    Thanks for your good wishes. It is not the best time of year to start alone I know but I am pushing myself a bit to prove that I can do it but looking forward to next year. I am realising now that Raindance was not the best choice of name! It was because it chucked it down the day Sundance first came home. I think it's too late to change now.

    I was only jesting, Raindance is fine. (y)
    However if you really want to change it at any time you only have to PM Jim with a request but probably only after he has extracted £10 from you to become a fully fledged Funster.:rolleyes:

    I like the name... very Native American. :) The first sight you see when you are born apparently .....

    Don't forget to keep in touch with everyone and let us know how you go on. Motorhoming can be more fun when there are people to meet along the way.

    Can't tell you how much these comments mean. Gives me hope for the future because the now is proving so difficult I feel it could beat me. X

    awwww... That is so sad. Please be happy. YOu have taken a first step to making new friends and a new hobby ...... I know how you feel from your explanation... take each hour, not day, as it comes and please, please, please come on here and join in our silliness, our jokes, our serious conversations.. There is always hope and there are lots of new friends on here for you to meet. I am just sad that it is the wrong time of year for me to help more .. come the warmer weather trust me you will grow stronger....

    Your time in the van this weekend alone may feel a bit desolate at times, I know mine did, and I wondered if I had done the right thing... but we need those moments so that we recognise the good ones when they come along.

    Sending you a big hug. :)

    And a huge hug to you too. To find some understanding helps so much. I know I will be lonely for a while but I also know that there are so many like minded kind souls beyond where I am now X

    Chin-up Raindance, I see Jim has extracted your cash and you are now officially a Funster so you now have hundreds of friends on this forum.
    I don't know your circumstances but you can always find someone to pass the time with on here and although there are not so many meets this time of year you will be welcome at any that you choose when the weather perks up.

    Not at all. Just send a PM ( start a conversaion ) to Jim, he who created the forum on the first day then got pissed for the rest of the week, ask him to change it to .......

    If you can drive to the shops you can manage a MH.

    I can't begin to tell you how much your comments mean to me. I will certainly keep in touch, keep brave and most of all look forward to the future. X
