    Hi Guys
    Just thought we would introduce ourselves to you all.
    Just stumbled across this site and it looks fantastic and a great source of info.
    We are Graham & Amanda. A couple in our mid to late 40's (well Amanda is mid and I'm late). We have 4 grown up children with the youngest due to start Uni next September.
    We have for many years owned and restored VW's including many Splitty's and bays, and have spent all our holidays and lots of weekends touring the UK in them.
    For the past couple of years we have been foster carers which has tied us down a bit more than we would have liked so we have made some life changing decisions.
    Next year we are planning on selling everything (the house, the cars, the furniture etc), pay off all our loans and debts, and tour the world in our RV.
    If anyone would like to offer any helpful hints and tips then we are keen to find out as much as we can.
    I'm sure I will be putting up lots of questions and posting over the coming months.
    Here are a couple of pictures of our recently purchased John Deere Allegro RV.
    Basically it is a great van with just a few small jobs to do (and no the tiger was not included when we bought it).

    Can't wait until we can start touring
    Take care all
    Graham & Amanda

    Hi Graham & Amanda

    WELCOME to MH Fun :BigGrin::BigGrin:

    Like the look of the motorhome, should be good for touring.

    Mines only a baby but I am sure your questions will get answers from some of the Funsters, there is a lot of knowledge around on this forum.


    Best of luck

    Dave :thumb::thumb:

    It's a grand plan. How far do you hope to get ? Have you seen the program Long Way Round - that might give you ideas. Or frighten you off the idea altogether.
