    Just been reading some of the many diverse threads on here and wondered what Fun means to you.

    For me

    It's my daily newspaper,

    Rallies & meets... Part of my social year arrangements

    Instant weather reports from UK and Europe.

    Gives me laughs......Old Mo. and Hilldweller

    What do you get out of Fun.

    Good thread starter Carol.

    Mine is the technical side of it all, the support and the tips given and debated. Shifftz makes my day sometimes with his political meanderings and banter ensued and the majority of the 'on the road' reports are brilliant - followed the Morocco reports daily.

    Just a few of my loves of Fun.:thumb:

    The Fun must go on.

    Regards,

    Trikeman. :Wink:

    From FUN I love

    All the recommendations:Smile:

    From destinations to campsites and how to get there.


    Mifi ........SIM cards..... Window alarms........igloo dog beds........etc etc etc

    The kindness of Funsters.... Frankie offering overnight stops to Funsters and another Funster volunteering to look after Road Runners RV when he was ill.

    Always someone willing to help.

    Andyman when he kindly dropped what he was doing to look at my gas fire.

    JJ and Chrisgreen helping me with fridge problems at the Marjal meet.

    The laughs. I sometimes cry laughing at some posts.

    Old Mo's jokes:Smile:

    There is always someone willing to help out if you have a problem.
    Pappajohn is a mine of information:Smile:

    Yes even Hilldweller :Smile: who at first I didn't understand his posts:Smile:, but now I do.

    Help always at hand:Smile:

    The regular daily posters Shifftz, Tonka, Chris, Old Mo and loads and loads of others.

    I love the way Jim runs the Forum:Smile: no administrators:Laughing:

    I love reading where everyone is going. If I feel in the mood love reading the blogs.

    Love the Rally pictures.:Smile: and youtube videos:Smile:

    I love everything about Fun.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    All of the above, with the possible exception of Old Mo's jokes........:Wink: even the rather dubious thread about inflatable items on campsites which allegedly is a blow up awning (if ever there was an euphemism .............. :Blush:)


    OK I lied about the jokes - keep 'em coming.....


    Cheers everyone and thanks to each and everyone for being helpful/daft/funny in equal measures:thumb:

    Only been a member for just over a year but it has restored my faith in human kindness:thumb:
    It seems to me that no question goes unanswered, no query is ignored and even if it is it gets bumped until answered.
    I have learnt so much even though I was a tugger for 20 years.
    The jokes ( old mo keep e'm coming), the advice, the projects undertaken.
    All in all an extremely well run forum of which Jim should be very proud.

    By the way, Great post Carol.

    same as Carol........and it taught me to type with two fingers at a reasonable speed, so that also makes it a teaching aid. :thumb:

    Even quicker with a stylus on my tablet.

    How many times do you hear people say about the good old days when people had a sense of community.
    For us we feel that we still experience that with Fun.
    There is advice, a sense of humour and a wealth of human experience on here.
    All emotions are covered.
    Best of all, the great times we have when we all get to meet up.
    Love it :thumb:

    FUN is very informative, great meets, lots of info on aires across Europe, lots of technical help, friendly people, no committee members who think they run the show!!
    and all for only £10 per year:thumb:
