    Have today just joined up with this group of happy campers. Came across you guys due to doing some research (hair pulling - if I had any) into buying a motorhome. Some of the posts that I came across may have been "dated" due to the subject I was googling.

    My partner Carol & I took off around Europe & Morocco wild camping for almost 2 years in '07 & intend to do similar mid next year. On my previous trip I was a total 100% newbie travelling in a very basic Fiat Ducato. Apart from the trials, tribulations, beautiful vistas & experiences the main thing I enjoyed was meeting fellow travellers. Most were retired but what I took away from meeting most was the vitality that they displayed in enjoying life to the full, the openness, helpfulness & eagerness in also meeting us.

    Anyway thanks for allowing me to be part of this group & hope I will be able to contribute in some small way.

    They're not really spirited at all you know.

    They're boring old farts who have a change of personality when they spot anyone in a M/H not bearing a 'Fun' sticker, and go into 'recruitment' mode, as Ringleader Jim brainwashes them with fancy things they've never seen before, like heated marquees and bacon sandwiches. And his wife's the same - she bribed me with a Gin & Tonic.

    You have been warned.

    Well that was a welcome & a half. Normally I’m used to a room going quiet when I walk into a strange place – bald & over 2 meters may have an influence.

    Thank you for your welcome Taran, Rangitira, Pete, Carol, Peter, ukbilt, billthedrill, , Terry & Mac

    Janine & Keith, thank you for the offer re use of people knowledge. When I am close to making a choice of vehicle the chances are that I will run it by the group.
    Ukbill & Rodger/Sheilla - I will endeavour to contribute J


    Brian - “spirited people” reflects the fellow travellers I have met, so far from the greetings you people appear to share the same ethos, which is great.

    Jenny – ha ha. Well I’m up for being kept in the group by Jim & his wife with bacon sandwiches perhaps even washed down with a gin & tonic (or 2).

    Jim the Ringleader – this group sounds more & more like a circus & you deserve your title ha ha. Thanks for your personal greeting. I will endeavour to work our how these forums things work out. Until I do please excuse me if a message is directed at me & I fail to respond. It will not be because of being ignorant but due to not having worked out the technical aspects of how these forums work.

    Anyway, thanks guys.
    Phil

    It's really strange

    I have been a Fun member for 4 years, and have done lots of travelling around in that time. Apart from Fun meets/rallies, I have NEVER seen a van with a Fun sticker in the windscreen. Everywhere I go I look for them, but - no luck. Why is that? :Confused:

    Hurray - I've seen my first sticker - was it you??

    After posting yesterday that I had never seen a Fun sticker except at rallies, I saw one today on a lhd Hymer at around 10.55 on the Eastern Bypass, Oxford, near Sainsburys. Was it you?
