    I've been a member for a couple of months just reading posts, but after just commenting on one thought I'd better introduce myself.
    Have always had mobile holidays, first tenting, then tugging until 2001 when we upped sticks and moved to live in SW France. Sadly my husband passed away in 2007 and having no regular income (I was doing supply teaching of english) had to move back to england. Then three years ago I met someone with the same love of mobile holidays as me,( he posts on here regularly, but I hope you won't hold that against me!). We bought an old LDV campervan and last year travelled 3500 miles across France to Italy, back across the mediterranean coast, into Spain, then back up the SW of France.
    Have decided that we need a bit more comfort now we're both retired so have recently bought a Compass Avantgarde and love having space, apart from the squashed up shower room which a lot of you probably know about by now.
    Love reading your posts, especially those from women. All I've got to do now is get my OH to a rally.:BigGrin:

    I could shout out of the window and you would probably hear me from Midway

    Welcome:welcomefunster:
    We were new six months ago and can recommend the rallies for meeting up with lots of good folk. Hope to meet up with you too sometime soon.

    Hi and welcome to the fun, you don't mention who your other half is, I hope you realise you only need to pay one membership fee between you. Check out the rallies section, maybe we can tempt you to join us in Ilfracombe in August a lot of funsters are coming so a good chance to meet a few.
