    Well I can't believe it, I've made it... This is my 10000th post since Nikki and I joined Motorhome fun back in its first year.

    Through this time we have taken our kids to many meets and although they no longer come have great memories of some of the great early meets we done.
    In the early days I can remember handing cards out with Jim and Sian and their kids at shows and a meet saw about 20 vans.

    Through the great stewardship of Jim and the then internet tutor Brian the site just grew and grew...

    But 10000 posts, wow, plenty of them have been crap some humorous, some controversial and some I'm sure self promoting crap trap.

    If my maths serves me correctly, it takes say about on average 3 mins to post a thread, so that works out at what? 30000 minutes which equates to 21 full 24 hour days which I have spent on Motorhome fun in 7 years......

    Not a moment of it I regret, I've gained a dog, a load of friends, a few enemies, the headache of arranging approximately 30 meets coupled with fantastic reward, I've cleaned van roofs even gone an bought a van for another Funster at 30k which they paid of course, I've had nights in with funsters parked on my drive....

    Wow, that's something I just never believed would happen when I posted my first post.

    So thank you funsters, and enjoy...:thumb:

    :Cool:

    well done Paul, both quality and quantity just the first 10,000 posts mind you:thumb:

    now watch the next 10,000 be complete and utter shite:Rofl1: either way it will be with friends that understand your warped humour and love you more because of it:Rofl1:

    Gosh, Paul ... you're turning into a soppy, old bugger like me son. :BigGrin:

    Congratulations. . . on your 10000 post that is, not on turning into a soppy old b..gger...:Doh: ... I'm sure you couldn't have done it as well without Niki who is an inspiration to everybody.

    Hi Paul, well done. It's more than a post number thing though. To say you embraced the Funster ethos from the start would be a disingenuous; you and Nikki helped mould it to what it is today. Your hard work running rallies, making sure its all about the people and having fun (rather than what they're driving) has played a major part in Fun's development. Many friendships have been made because you and Nikki have made the effort, above and beyond mate. Thanks again, we all owe you one:thumb:
