    Hi,

    I joined at Newbury after strong hints from friends :)

    Been motorhoming with a panel van, a Murvi Morello, since 2005. Caravan 11 years before that and trailer tent 5 years before that. More a stages-of-life-thing according to affordability and children in tow or not.

    Only prior involvement with Fun was a very sociable evening at Peterborough show a few years back.

    I retired early last month and am now getting the van ready to sell. Will be going next year for something more amenable to longer stints in Europe. Or as wife Alison would say, with another living compartment to get away from me .....
