    Let any one stay on your property..?

    Over the last few week`s we have had a few Mo-homers and Tuggers pull in and ask if they can stay/camp..

    Most times we say no or if they are members C.C.C.GB... point them in the direction of my mate Martin who has a 5CL just up the road..

    Last night a young Dutch couple pulled in fairly late in the evening and asked if they could stop... (I asked if they were members of C.C.C.) and no was the reply..

    So I have let them stay as my invited guest...

    As it happens they are a lovely couple on the face of it, and are touring the UK for six weeks in an Old Home built Toyota van...

    Don`t know most from Tom,Dick or Harry...

    Are we being too laid back... ? :nod: :shake: :nod:

    We all way`s take a photo of the vehicle whoever stays.

    And give them a Introductory card for Motorhome Fun..

    Whether they join or not..... I don`t know..

    I think you have exactly the correct approach Mo. You can pick and choose who you let stay and if you allowed them all, word may get around and you could find it becoming a nuisance. I like the photo idea for your added security (y)

    Are you playing up with my nerves Mo? This is very unfair to ask such a question when I'm begging for someone to come here!:(

    I would love to have someone in my garden right now..... just for some competition with my "other very unwanted"guests":whistle:

    Back in Sarfend for a while, then back to RSA.
    Sounds just like what Brexit will achieve - your property, your decision who enters and who doesn't.
    Invite in those visitors you wish.

    Gut feel Mo, wonderful thing and rarely lets you down. Mind you, if anyone calls from the South Island or even if they LOOK like Ner-do-wells then give them the Spanish Archer.

    For Example..........

    I have a simple way to find out if motorhomers wishing to visit QMJ are suitable or not.

    I play them a couple of Man City videos and if their eyes light up with excitement every time City score yet another goal, they can stay.

    Of course they must be Funsters first.

    Mind you... if they are professionals with a strimmer/rake/shovel/pickaxe etc they can bypass the footy test (but not the Funster one).

    JJ :cool:
