    I have come to the conclusion that most of the people that own motorhomes don't work Mondays, as I have been from Gillingham,kent to Bridgwater and back for a days work and have seen about 60 motorhomes on the road, wish I could retire as well

    Hi, A lot are retired like myself , but just think again!! when retired you never again get weekends or bank holidays again to look forward too. But its not all bad , its just you have to fit in camping / motorhoming / trips away around doctors / hospital appointments etc!!!!

    I'm surprised you only saw 60! We see loads down here. Fidget is right; retirement is not all it's cracked up to be. At least that's what we tell our old friends who are still working......:BigGrin:

    Retirement is everything, you can go away when the children are at school. couldn`t do when younger without the crowds , you are your own boss, can go where you want and when you want, able to do things you didn`t have the time to do when working, both my husband and myself tell folks we haven`t the time to go to work :Rofl1:we are busier now than ever not enough hours in the day, and folks who say they are bored I feel sorry for, my Daughters said to me ages ago, Mum you will never be bored you have to many hobbies etc. there may come a time when you cannot do or able to do what you want so make the most of it, no one knows what is around the corner and then it is too late, choice has been taken away from you. :cry:

    It's great when the kids want to visit and you can tell them, 'oh we're away for x weeks then' :Rofl1:

    could it be like me, the vans you saw were haveing a long weekend, Friday to Monday?

    I hate going away for the weekend only to pack up sunday morning to go home early.


    But as an aside, we were at CC site this weekend and two lots of people were there, who had been away from home for more than six months, both newly retired and both tuggers.
