    Hi Everyone

    We're Jerry & Helen, and live just south of Newbury - a stone's throw from [STRIKE]Downton Abbey[/STRIKE] Highclere Castle. We picked up our 2013 model Rapido 9090DF from Wokingham Motorhomes last Friday, and then proceeded to have our first couple of nights away in it! We were recommended to join this community by Peter of Johns Cross, who we met on Friday afternoon - so here we are.

    Having first tasted motorhoming with our children on holiday in Canada in 2000, and hired a couple of times subsequently, we graduated to purchasing our dear old Magic Bus (a 1989 Hymer 694) in 2008. It was originally purchased for Glastonbury Festival (we go every year it's on), but opened the door to so much more! It will be going on the market in a couple of months or so.

    We've now treated ourselves to our new baby, and are looking forward to easing up on work and having more time to enjoy ourselves - the youngsters having grown up and moved on ....

    We have several questions and will post them in the most appropriate place - just need to investigate the site a bit more!

    Jerry & Helen

    PS. Does anyone else spend the evening surfing the web, surrounding by ACSI, France Passion and other brochures?

    ah the planning, hours of dreaming and what ifs, finding that best spot on google maps and streetview - and then do something totally different as soon as we get off the ferry:BigGrin:

    everytime!!

    but i think your right - the planning is part of the fun - if only to be able to look back at all the the things you didn't do and must do next time and the things you did do that you hadn't thought of :Rofl1:
