Default Hello from Brizzle

I'm Steve and I'm a motorhomeaholic. Joined in June 2011 when I first started looking for a motorhome and spent a lot of time sucking this (and other) forums dry in a quest for help, hints, tips and advice. Fast forward two years and we (married nearly 30 years to Andrea) have travelled 12k miles in our Dethleffs in six countries (if the principality on the west of Britain counts) and have realised that I am no longer a newbie as people on sites and at home now ask for my help and advice. I am a bit of a tinkerer (not a tinker) and have fitted all manner of accessories and repaired the strangest things. Have now paid my subs and feel ready to contribute. If you see me/us with the van please feel free to stop and chat, we have met the most lovely people on our travels, but I am sure there are more out there!
(and, yes, I love brackets)!

Hi Steve, welcome to MotorhomeFun.
Growing old is mandatory - Growing up is optional

Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

You don't stop playing because you grow old - you grow old because you stop playing!

Better to have one and not to need one, than to need one and not to have one.
