    We have a full compliment of Funsters here, just waiting on Meakwooders. Glorious sunshine all day yesterday with promise of more all weekend. I have a burnt red head so I'll be needing my hat for the rest of this rally.

    Have a lovely weekend wherever you are. We're going to:thumb:

    I hope you all have a brilliant time.

    It would be really, really great to see some photos of the festivities (as they are happening rather than after they have finished.) :Wink: :thumb:

    Hi Jim

    Sorry to hear that you have been waiting for us. I did put a message on the shepton mallet post on Tuesday. I really hope that it has not been too much of a pain. I am glad to hear that you are all having a good time, and wish we were there!

    Hi Jim - we got there.

    What a cracking show, we have never seen so many motorhomes in one place. As far as the eye could see were motorhomes, new, second hand and some real cracking old ones and all with superb weather - we have a lot of sunburn.:Cool:
    We popped on to the Funsters site which was very welcoming and picked up the badges and stickers that now adorn our motorhome.
    We were also suprised by how many motorhomes display the funster decals in the motorhome parks - great spread.
    We, of course, got caught up in the moment and spent too much on everything we needed as newbies, ramps, steps, LED's, carpets, tee towel holders, etc etc etc.:Eek!:
    All in all a cracking day - we wished now we brought along our motorhome and joined in the 'off piste' fun, but we are off on hols this evening.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Regards, Trikeman.:BigGrin:

    Well I'm home now after a glorious couple of days.

    Met up with a dozen or more funsters all enjoying themselves. Never met Pamelaaaaar before or her old fella, wotsisname - Breasy - Easy - Briony - Brisey yeah that's it.

    Met wizzbang, capinpugwash, movan, the Hat, peper386 , billy&val a whole bunch of escapees from the principality Silk-cut etc one of which had a very good singing voice at 2 in the morning "Perri" I think it was.

    Also met Fidget (Terry) Isle of Wight and Peter H again and Minx in their new van and Dave and Polly Toledo Spanish hillbillies and nanajan, lovely to finally meet you all.

    We spent far too much on "Essential Gear" which will never see the light of Day.

    I did buy an iBoost on Treacle's say so, hope it proves useful. Anyway got to change clothes and set of for Holland tonight so thank-you Pam & Brisey, Jim & Sian and everyone for making it such a lovely week end..... Griff

    Stuart, to that well known tune

    So I say
    Thank you for the music, the songs we were singing
    Thanks for all the joy you were bringing
    Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
    What would life be?
    Without a song or a dance what are we?
    So I say thank you for the music
    For giving it to me.... And all those other Funsters Cheers mate:thumb:
