    Retired at last!
    I've sold the business and intend spending the rest of my time on earth drifting around Europe in the 'van, visiting shows and as many vineyards as I can find.
    I enjoyed running the business and met some really great motorhomers - plus the inevitable few a**holes.

    I look forward to meeting up with a few funsters in some lovely remote spot - please don't introduce yourself if you're one of a**holes!

    Minus the A**eholes how will you notice any difference, you appear to be planning to do more or less the same as your previous work?:Laughing:

    Retirement

    Message for Taran

    When I started the company I used to lead all of the tours myself, but as it grew this became impossible and I was stuck in the office throughout the year, planning and organising tours which sounded absolutely wonderful.
    Perhaps you can now understand my reasons for "drifting around Europe".

    Being English, rather than American, isn't it a***hole and not a**hole?
