    The question "Will coachbuilts through the Eucalyptus trees?" has been answered!

    Yes.

    Doug and Sandra drove their Swift Suntor 630G right through with the wing mirrors out and thus became the very first visitors to Quinta Majay and we are now having the very Funsters' meet!

    Come on JJ spill the beans. Where is this haven and when is the meet.

    Down in Southern Spain in a few weeks and I like my little trips into Portugal.

    Hi there all...

    apxc15... the closest village is Pinheiro Bordalo. (Central Portugal) I will have a Google Map prepared soon. The meet is a rolling one... if you arrive and there are other Funsters here the meet starts, if you are on your own you will have a real "solo" meet... :)

    JJ

    PS. Before you can receive your Google Map you have to pass the laws of Quinta Majay...

    Law One. No Manchester United fans allowed.

    Law Two. See Law One.

    Law Three. See Law Two

    etc...

    I didn't think it was possible but you have done it Smudger!!!

    You've found a use for Man U fans (other than having them pour petrol in their cars and helping pay the wages of the City boys...)

    :) (0-2, 1-0, 0-1, 4-2.) (Solve this puzzle and win a free year's stay on Quinta Majay.)

    I think I can obey the rules with relative ease. In fact if I find myself in the company of Man U "fans" I usually make my excuses and leave.
    Could the puzzle be a reference to Manchester City?
    Co-ordinates for TomTom would be handy and would I get a 7'6" wide Hymer in there OK?

    Pete:Cool:

    PS Whoops just looked at the Pic's and you have a Hymer in there, that'll teach me to be more observant.

    Steve4kay... Arsenal fans are welcome... the Gunners play beautiful football and have a manager who has taught us loads about professionalism etc. (They also let us beat them now and again!) In January the weather is changeable and not as reliably sunny as the Allgarve but is always nicer and warmer than the UK.

    Thanks for your kind comments Haleylulu... I found you one of the nicest Scum fans I have ever met and Martin was great fun too :)

    All potential visitors should give me possible dates of visits... exact location will not be published for the whole world to see or we might be inundated with undesireables (or Morris Dancers)

    APX (I've forgotten your exact avatar and if I go back to check I'll lose the whole post (again)) we will have to have a prime location for all the Hymers away from the ordinary folk and closest to the tastiest grapes, pears and cherries....

    Smudger... I'm looking for anywhere nearby for your Palace!!! ;-)

    Yes Dodgey... that's my dream machine!

    www.wagonman2000.blogspot.com has more pics...

    looks to me to be the scores of the last 4 games, maybe a new team, manager, and club name would solve it, hee hee

    Well done Roger... you are right but I think you might have failed to notice they are all glorious victories for the beautiful boys in blue from Eastlands...
