    I have only met one “Funster” and the way I am going I don’t think I will meet any more!:cry:
    I left Spain on a tour of the UK and have stopped at the following Campsites: Henley, Stratford, Chester, Coniston, Penrith, Loch Lomond, Oban, Fort William, Inverness, Blair Atholl, St Andrews and I am now at Berwick on Tweed.

    The question I ask myself is, will I meet anybody from this forum on my way to: Beamish, Whitby, York, Wansford, Stevenage (Wedding party) Braunston, Grafham Water, Peterborough, Hurley.
    I thought I would be tripping over Funsters all over the UK……where are you all……of course it is always possible that you all move on when you hear that I am on my way!!! :Smile::Rofl1:
    Where ever you guys and girls are, have a great trip:Smile:

    while there is a membership of thousands, the active members only account for a few hundred.

    I have been a member since 2007 and, apart from rallies and shows, i have yet to stumble across another funster...even out on the road. :Doh:

    Hi Bill if the Braunston you refer to is the one in Rutland ill be there!
    It's a small village and home to the Vlad family.


    The easiest way to meet other funsters is to either stop off at a show or rally,or let us know when your in a certain area and see whose near by.





    Regards Vlad

    Thanks for the offer, unfortunately the Braunston I will be at is the one near Rugby, only stopping to see family.

    Shows are difficult for me as I spend lots of time in Spain, came to the UK to cool down and cool down it did, since the Lake District it has rained almost every day all the way round Scotland, people mentioned the midges but didn't say anything about rain in Scotland, it seems they get a lot :Rofl1:

    Would seem more likely Bill that If you let people know
    Where you will be and when you are more likely to be meeting others.:Wink:

    Good Luck and post your planned Journeys

    Hi.

    I am currently at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta with the MCC, a few more fun members have been on the site. I have met up with a few members on the French Aires over the last few years.

    If you want to meet a few try the 160 at Malvern next weekend.

    We've only just managed to meet a couple recently after being members for nearly two years. We had been keeping in touch with them by e-mail and we met up when we went down south to look at another mh. We are hoping to get together when we go down to change the van over later this month:thumb:
    But we have spoken to a couple of funsters on the phone and hopefully we will get to meet up with them sometime or another.

    The last time we were on a big site and got talking to someone in a mh, I asked if he was a funster. He gave me a very strange look and I had to explain, it turned out he wasn't :RollEyes:

    We be in Narfook as well, currently at the Old Hall at Caister on Sea which is a Brit Stop and one that I can highly recommend. We have just moved on today from an MCC rally at Gorlestone where we met up with a few Funsters namely Polar Bear and Martibolt. We are staying on here at Caister until Wednesday when we move on to Malvern.

    I know we should all have funster stickers but have never been one for stickers on car or MH what about a funster motor home using this pitch type thing that we could put in place when we arrive on site
    Just a thought

    Only ever bumped into a Funster once on our travels (except rallies and pre arranged meets)
    We were travelling down to the Algarve and stopped at a Spanish motorway service station for a brew.
    Someone knocked on our door and introduced himself and suggested we ought to join Motorhomefun. "But we are already members" I said.
    Who was it?

    We stopped off at Hope before stopping at Castleton last year, then went onto Chatsworth. But met our first funster last month down near Nottingham, will meet up again when we go down to change over the van:thumb:
