    Hi

    I have just bought a converted Fiat Doblo in a moment of madness, but i am very happy and looking forward to new adventures on my own with the dog. Didnt want a large campervan as i wanted to use it for commuting to work and also at weekends. I am planning where i want to explore. I enjoy walking and going to the seaside.

    Welcome! Doesn't matter what size it is, it's how you use it! :) Look forward to reading about your adventures, Susie.

    I think there are a few people on site with Doblo converts. Might be worth a search.

    Hi.gif and a warm welcome from us. You may be locked out of the forum now, with regards to making posts, as you only get 5 before you have to subscribe. It costs £15 per year, which to us is an absolute bargain as the information freely given by other subscribers must have saved us a fortune over the years.
    So, Susie, we look forward to hearing from you again.

    Welcome Suzie ... sure you will enjoy your new hobby. Look out for the smiley face Funster stickers on other vans on your travels and go and introduce yourself.

    Lovely to have you aboard .. young solos needed .. too many of us are old fogies now :(

    Thank you so much to everyone who has welcomed me and with such wisdom......Thank you Movan, Hilldweller, Rob and Val.....such a great site. Have subscribed now. Do people go on meets etc. Not sure how things work. Where do you get the smiley face Funster stickers from. Do people go wild camping or on a specified site.

    I sunshine .. there is always something going on .. for example if you look under rallies forum you will see many up and coming meets .

    Why not have a look at the Malvern one coming up .. @Ambilkate will hopefully see this and give you a link. Sometimes we just meet up on a field or small campsite and sometimez at organised rallies. What area are you in?

    I have to limit myself to the cheaper sites and meets as I only on pension and so you can choose what you would like. Bbqs, music, dancing or walks and just relaxing. You do as much or as little as YOU want to do.

    @Cal54 have you met Susie?
