    I am off up the road to the NEC for the Tuesday opening day . Just had a thought. Do I wear my badge to identify myself to other miscreants that might turn up there? Or would I look silly unless I'm on the Carthago stand, trying to blag a free one from them.
    Would you wear it with pride or skulk around?

    There's a time and a place !
    The rest of them aren't like us and won't understand ,if you feel the need to wear it and attract any unwelcome attention ,tell them you work for an agency investigating gassing incidents ,I'm sure they'll give you a wide berth and ask no more questions

    Yes you'll see a few Funster badges being worn. When I was there in February I found a group of badge wearers who had met at the show. Where did I find them? Sat outside Wetherspoons :rofl:

    So if you wear your badge they will give you a wide berth,

    Hi.
    There is more to this than meets the eye,being as i am a bit of a loner when out in the unit with first wife,(52cnd wedding anniversary tomorrow 12/10/ 2015..Where did those years go ?),i am wary about attracting attention. (Who could have guessed that..)
    So far,having spent 6 weeks back in England at 4 seperate sites,i have yet to see a Funster member + badge,or smiley face on a unit. To be fair,i had more fun with "C/vanners" and two M/Homers who were not funsters,but i spread the word while there. Are you all out of the country !!!LOL.
    Will get a smiley face for the unit in the fullness of time,however,at the moment it is in Stealth mode.(Need to know basis). Look forward to perhaps seeing some of you in our future travels.Stay well,stay lucky.

    3 smiley faces on windscreens in Keswick last week(y) @Bluemooner parked next to us, very nice couple (we are evens now andy) Didn't meet the others, never saw them in, and ourselves.
    Must admit only ever seen these 2 + my first meeting with @zainspops in Chartres this year, another nice couple.
    Do people hide their Smiley's and put them on show only when they feel sociable?

    Don't have sticker for van or badges now in the van badges got water damaged when we left them in the garage when we stored the van last year.
    and don't have the sticker on windscreen nether as we prefer a clear windscreen and windows with out stickers except a very small Scotland badge

    "Badges, we don't need no stinking badges!". Famous line from a brilliant Humphrey Bogart film.



    And copied in Blazing Saddles.

    Looking at your avatar I can see why if you were wearing a Funster badge you would look really odd! :)

    How do you get a badge? Can you order one and pay for it online or do you only get them at the large rallies Jim attends?
