    Anyway we just wanted to say 'Hi' - . . . . . and if anyone could suggest a lovely site for a couple of newbies . . . where hopefully we wont make complete prats of ourselves! Somewhere quiet . . . with some nice views . . in Devon/Dorset or even Hampshire???
    Any advice would be great.::bigsmile:

    Hi and welcome.

    The only advice I can give is get yourselves along to a fun rally. You can make a complete prat of yourself there and it would be considered normal behaviour :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Stopped at Garstang for 2 nights recently and a couple next door said they were on their first trip and only had the van 1 week.

    We were only on our 2nd trip out, everybody passing was friendly and if there had been any problems i'm sure there would have been offers of help.

    There's a lot of us still learning.::bigsmile:

    Yes, we're definitely still learning, apart from a minor malfunction with bubblewrap in the oven :RollEyes: it's been great so far. The trip to France next month will be the biggest test for us though............

    Hi and congratulations on your purchase. It's a whole new world...
    I'm new to the forum too but have been motorhoming a while longer.
    I'd vouch for the Caravan Club as well, if you want continuity of quality sites.
    It's not as adventurous, but you know what to expect when you get there.
