    Reading threads in which Funsters offer support and help in abundance, I wondered what being a member of this fabulous forum has done for others.

    Being a Funster has totally changed my life - I wouldn't have re-discovered my love of making music, and subsequently met Barrie, if I hadn't rallied with the Funsters at Malvern 5 years ago. Thank you, Jim & Sian :)

    Come on then - how was it for you?

    I find it comfortable.

    If I am stressed at work I pop in, have a giggle and feel invigorated again.

    Some seriously nice people in this club(y)

    I would say that being a Motorhomer is changing my life and that being part of MHF is complementing & enhancing my new direction & journey (y).

    Like Janine have to say yes, have met so many real nice genuine people in Fun, travelled through Morocco with made memories we will never forget. Party'd on shell Island, the list goes on. Seen the support funsters give when someone is not well, like our own Mousey (Dawn) now bet most on here on Fun will be wishing her well. Don't think you are ever alone when you are a Funster.

    Great thread Janine.

    Yes, without doubt. I drink more, eat more and swear more!! All of this is Jims fault!

    Seriously though, it has. We would not have travelled as much, got by when things didn't go as planned, met some lovely lovely people, and some kno*s as well mind. :eek:

    We might still have done some of the things and been to some of the places, but I doubt we would have gone to Morocco if it hadn't been for this forum.

    Oh yes! If we had not met the soggies we would not have come to France for a visit, fall in love with the place and are now living a dream!

    Will always be grateful to Alan and Lynda who we first met at Stoodley pike!!!

    A fantastic network of some likeminded people who you may not have bonded with without the forum.

    We have used the van far more than we might have done otherwise, I have learned an awful lot more by using the forum, I have visited places that I probably would not have done and, like Janine, playing the music with the rest of our musical friends has made a significant difference for us. It has also opened up a whole new world and in the process made us some really great friends.

    But, above all, I also met Barrie through the Forum :eek:

    It certainly has changed our lives and continues to do so. We have made new friends both on here and at the Meets(2 only so far),learned we're hopeless happy dancers at the Falkirk Meet, gained much valuable information provided freely by the Funsters on umpteen subject topics and daily enjoy the banter and contacts on here.

    No I wouldn't say it's changed my life, but I've not gone beyond the online Fun so what would I know? If the rallying side of it is your thing I could see it opening up all sorts of possibilities. I have friends I've made as a result of past surfing forum meets.

    It is however an excellent source of information on pretty much anything, and the slanging matches measured debates are hugely entertaining.

    I know, it's a bummer, but we can't seem to get rid of him!:whistle:

    I find the endless tips amazing.
    I also find the banter great fun.
    I know it can sometimes be cutting but in my heart I know that people will always support each other when the chips are down.

    A great gang of people
    A great website
    A great place to dip in and out of for a smile or two.

    I like so many others like to play devils advocate

    Thank you to all for bringing something different into my life.

    John

    I enjoy the Fun banter and I feel that although I have not met too many funsters yet I still feel that I know some of you fairly well. My greatest achievement on fun is probably being one of the very few members on Shiftzz ignore list. ;)
