    I just noticed that someone earlier this month has commented on an article I wrote, saying they were gassed:Eeek: Not someone they know, but they themselves, I think there maybe some holes in the story, but read it and judge for yourself. Read the article or just scroll down to the comment.

    Barrie's sister has a friend who was gassed in their motorhome in France - shall I try and get an account of it for your research, Jim? :Smile:

    What a load of carp.

    "We caught them" really, how many of then were there and there is no mention of police being called etc.etc. what `happened to the miscreants.

    "Gas bottle with hose to air hole/cent in floor" Gas is heavier than air and would probably leak straight out again. What type of gas, what happened to the cylinder.

    "Miscreants were from a gypsy site" Next to holiday site the author of the report was on. Really? so they just walked back to the gypsy site having been caught did they.

    "Well known, but thy don't talk about it" Well known by who, and the reason theydont talk about it is because it doesn't happen.

    I have no doubt that there are some, gypsy or not who will happily steal from motorhome, but no gas bottle was recovered or at least no details about it are given, neither is there any sensible account of what happened to the "gypsies" who were caught re handed so to speak. Both elements would be essential to give some credence to the story.

    As it is, the story has more holes than the Titanic. I wonder if on the second occasion when the van was cleaned out in 30 seconds if the thieves found the 5000 euros in cash the owner had hidden under the mattress with his solid gold Rolex.:Wink:

    Judy slept most of the night in the car...

    Told her if the same thing happens tonight...

    She will be back out in the car....

    Certainly sounds highly unlikely, however I would suggest anyone who is at all concerned gets a gas detector. Not for this mythical 'gypsy' gas, but it will go if if there is a gas leak, which is much more likely to happen.

    Because the robbers gas is 'unknown to science' it may not set off the detector of course.:Rofl1:

    We have a greyhound, who can clear our motorhome in far less than 30 seconds with "Greyhound Gas" :Rofl1:
