    Hi I'm Jim Fisher from Birmingham, I'm a disabled driver who uses click and go technology which allows me to drive manual clutches with just the use of one foot. Been motor homing for some 40 years and had a few different motor homes from a old BMC J4 conversion to my latest a 2005 Autosleeper Nuevo ES.

    That puts most of us to shame. Only 8 years here but 8 good years. You must have some good yarns to spin ! This what FUN is about, especially at meets when a little medicinal alcohol is taken.

    Two stories that spring to mind. 1979 on top of Plymouth Hoe watching the Fastnet race boats come home in that gale that killed 15 people, rain lashing down water coming in everywhere into my BMC J4 conversion. Two babies, me and the wife wet through thinking motor homing not for us. Fast forward 25 years in a packed Amsterdam camp site owned by the most tattooed man and the air smelling sweet, went into Amsterdam on the tram had a chocolate brownie in one of those brown cafe's. Innocence is sweet but don't remember getting home or indeed the next day. Slept most of the next day.
