    Wherever we stop.
    Hi all, a few weeks ago I said we were selling the hpose and taking off in the van, that has all happened and we are thoroughly enjoying ourselves.
    We started off at a small rally, aimed at new fulltimers meeting old hands and learning a bit, in Norfolk, after that we went up to
    Tetny Lock then
    Market Raisen area then
    Bridlington then
    York then
    Hawes, Yorkshire then
    Lake District then
    Derbyshire still here.
    Next stop Silverstone then a visit to his parents then
    Wales to see my mum and get all our winter clothing.
    We are really enjoying this life, long may it last!!!!!:thumb:

    Good for you, it certainly looks like you've been busy. Are you intending to go south to Spain for the winter or are you going to see how you cope in UK. A few years ago I changed jobs and was unable to sell my house and I lived in my van from September through to December on a farm near Wisbech in the heart of the fens. It was very cold and despite having the 2kw heater on all night some mornings I woke to ice on the inside of the windows as well as outside.

    A bit of go in you. Just the right people to make a go of it.

    Let's see how you cope with your first winter.

    The Spanish Job might help.

    Really nice to hear things are going well, its always good to hear when a plan comes together, please keep us updated on your progress, see your are in a Hymer 584 how is that working out, ((we love ours) . It would be a shame to move the post as its nice for all us that dream about it on and off, to get a insight of it for real and maybe those thinking will get that extra bit of confidence to live their dream.

    Have no fear, it wouldn't disappear, would still come on the front page when updated .. and it would be easier to find by others looking for full timing threads .. :Smile:

    I never stop learning on this forum, just found the Full Timing Forum, absolutely fascinating will settle down this afternoon and have a good read, real life experiences just a good as any book. Again have to say to Jim & Bryan thank you for the best Motorhome Forum on the net.

    The 584 is working out really well-we love it but we did have the table chopped and it has given us a lot more free space but you stilll get a 'bar' at the side for cups of tea etc. it also makes it easier when dressing and using the bed!:thumb:
