    Our Blessed Leader is no longer in a position to organise a meet in Portugal in February.

    Quite a few Funsters had shown an interest...

    I have a possible alternative plan.

    I know of a location in Praia de Rocha, Portimao where a get together might interest some Funsters.

    The place in my mind is not a fully fledged campsite in so much as it does not have a shower/toilet block nor electricity but it does have the following advantages...

    1. Lots of space on different surfaces, tarmac, gravel or gravel/grass mix.

    2. Water.

    3. Cassette emptying.

    4. Dog friendly.

    5. Very close to huge beach and marina.

    6. Close to shops, restaurants and bars.

    7. A small onsite bar/snack bar/restaurant.

    8. Free internet (speed variable).

    9. Very affordable. (€2.50 per day, €2 for 110 litres of water).

    10. A short drive to supermarkets, GPL and Burger Ranch.


    If Funsters are interested maybe those in the area could choose a week/weekend (in Feb?) and meet up to discuss Fun stuff and hang out.

    What do people think?

    If enough people are in to it, I could approach the powers to be and see if they would allow us a space where we could be "all together".

    At the moment it's looking like I will be hospital in February so we can just be "maybe's" at the moment.

    Well...

    It looks as though we already have 6 vans so a "get together" looks ON.

    Here are Funsters Ray and Joan (RV8) at the Praia de Rocha beach...

    We could be interested possibly from mid Feb - on returning from Maroc but can't commit fully until we know exactly when we will be crossing back across the Straits.
