    Hi, We are Dave & Mary had our first van in 1967 ( called a camper van then ) had a few years as a tugger when the kids were small. We use the van all year, 10 years ago we left the uk in our van for an adventure and travelled around Europe, after 6 months we bought a finker in the mountains of Spain and used this as a base to travel from. Had the best 7 years ever, but all good things come to an end, and with illness in the family we returned to the uk and so this has been the first summer in the uk for 10 years and I am not impressed ( miss the sun ). We enjoy the freedom, and wild camp as much as possible, not keen on paying high site rent prices when we only wont to park, love going to meets with other m/hers and have found most of the people there are all good for a laugh and very friendly.
    Now I have to find my way around this site not that good with computers so I will apologise for any cock ups now ( seems a bit confusing at the mo lol ) :Confused: :Confused:

    Hi Dave and Mary,

    I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your adventure.

    Your Spanish must be pretty good by now?

    Like you ... the shock of coming back to this chilly N. European weather is not good.

    Best of luck.

    PS Like you I am still navigating my way around this site after being out of the country for 5 years, as I only joined yesterday!

    Hi & big Welcome Dave & Mary,
    Your adventures sound very interesting, we've been motorhoming since the late 1970's but nowhere near as adventurous as yours, only been to UK, France,Belgium, & Holland. I will be interested in your tales as and when.

    Well, well - look what the dog's brought in! Hullo you two and welcome! :thumb::thumb:

    Hopefully catch up with you again soon! Oh, by the way, the blanket is finished - I've got a picture somewhere!

    Cheers
