    I have been enjoying the pommie sense of humour for a few years on this web site, particularly from some of the regulars. Seems like some people have nothing better to do (probably retirees).

    Jean and I have owned a C-class MH since 2012, when I retired. While we have made a few trips we haven't used it anywhere near as much as we should.

    Last December we made a swap with a nice family from Belfast who used our van to travel North of Brisbane and spend some time at the Great Barrier Reef. They then flew to Sydney and enjoyed the New Year fireworks. Next month (September 2016) we are travelling to UK and will use their MH for a trip through Scotland and probably North Wales. Maybe we will be able to get to a Funster's rally.

    I will continue to enjoy this sit and, now that I am a paid up member, may contribute to the forum from time to time; mind you I won't be trying to match the wonderful pommie humour.

    Ross

    Hello and welcome. We won't mention England's recent whitewashing of the wallabies too much either ;)

    Welcome! You are clearly proud Australians, posing for your avatar picture in National dress. :)

    Scotland in September, hmm, take plenty of midge repellent. Smidge is very effective and you should be able to pick some up from outdoor type shops.

    There might be a space left at the New Romney meet as well - not too many people (15 vans) so good for getting to know people. If interested suggest to contact Ramon @B-well - it is 9th Sept weekend

    :hiya:Ross, we have relatives in Toowoomba, did a tour staying in the Big 4s as far as Yepoon three years ago. Enjoy your Scottish trip in September.

    How do ! Midges won't be too bad in September, we'll probably have had a frost by then ! Also, pack clothing for every weather possibility, but I'm sure you'll enjoy yourselves regardless. My SIL just moved up to Brisbane last month after over 30 years in Sydney, she loves the atmosphere, more like a big country town than a city she reckons.
