    I'm Bridget and am a forum newbie-this is my first ever post on any forum! I first started in the 80's with an old VW camper touring the UK and France before a brief dalliance with a trailer tent. Health issues put an end to touring until buying a Rollerteam in 2013 and then moving on to an Autotrail Arapaho ( nicknamed Helix) last September. I am now a solo motorhomer, and have managed 2 solo weekends with my dog Buffy. I would like to learn more about maintaining Helix and doing as much of it as I can. My hobbies include diy, reading, various crafts, cycling and obviously travelling! I'm looking forward to being an active part of this community.

    Thank you all, I've taken Trekkin's advice and upgraded to a subscription. Irnbru, your dog looks very much like mine although Buffy is a collie/jack russell cross

    Hi and welcome from Devon, there is a south West group here with quite a few members. There are lots of solos so you need not feel out of place at a rally.

    Thank you. Thank you for letting me know about the South West group, it's good to know that there are solos as I felt a bit awkward at the only rally I have done with the c&cc. Probably my own fault for not mingling a bit more- I'm sure I'll get the hang of it in time!

    Welcome on board from the duckhouse. :welc:

    There are a lot of solo travellers here so don't be worried about going to a meet or rally with fun. If you do make it along then look out for the van with a duck fixation and Mrs Deluxe and myself will gladly make a cuppa - we have an idiot rescue cocker spaniel by the way.....

    Edit - nice big van, the Araphaho. Plenty of space

    Thank you all for the welcome. I'm hoping to find a rally so that I can meet you and will take you up on the offer a cuppa dux deluxe! Yes, I love the space in the arapaho and am enjoying making minor improvements like soap dispensers and am going to switch lighting over to led's..... lots to learn but that's part of the fun for me. It would have been very cold and windy dappleduck...however...... I have just heard we are expecting a heatwave from thursday to sunday so I will be making the most of that!!

    Hello and Welcome Bridget, well done you, although not been a solo for a long time, can remember how daunting it felt.
