    Hi

    I’ve just had a fantastic season in ‘Daffy’ and enjoyed every minute of it and cant wait to be able to continue to get out and about in her!

    However, I’d really like to meet other single folks who are travelling alone, in the Derbyshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire area for next year. It’d just be great to be able to meet up with like minded folk.

    I personally didnt find it that easy turning up at campsites on my own, with everyone else in couples. I didnt feel them all thronging to welcome me, on the contrary, I felt very much that they were doing their own thing (which is fine, and their entitlement), and I was left to my own devices, but it ended up making me feel more alone than ever!

    So, it’d be great to hear from anyone out there!

    Oonagh

    Hi Oonagh. I am solo and love it. I have my life away from motorhoming and then friends with vans. Can't get away as much as I would like but the meets very often have other happy solos attending them. Please try to come along and I for one will put the kettle on. :Smile:

    Also a solo traveller. The fun meets are fantastic and you will feel very welcome.

    If you see a crappy van with a fun sticker, you are also welcome to bang on the door and have a coffee or a beer :thumb:

    Hi Oonagh and welcome to the Fun from another solo motorhomer (plus dog). :welcome:

    I fulltime and was around the Peak District and Staffordshire for quite a while earlier in the autumn. If you see a somewhat 'blingy' van with a Fun sticker on it, pop over and say hi. There is usually coffee on the go, sometimes with gingernuts! :Smile:

    Hi Oonah, See what you are letting yourself in for?:Rofl1:

    I am between Liverpool and Manchester, so not too far away, as in fact are many more. Keep posting... you will be surprised how many meets are within range of us. :thumb:

    PS When Sue says there are lots of gingernuts she means biscuits ... :Wink:

    Hi Ooonagh
    And I'm another solo traveller. Live near Lincoln and attend a lot of the rallies and have a real good time. Do come along. You're going to be putting weight on with all the offers of tea/coffee and biscuits. Look forward to meeting you. I am off to the CC site at Castleton at weekend and the weekend after that the Abbey Wood site in London:BigGrin:
