    Hi,

    We have had our very first motorhome for just over a month now. We have enjoyed a night wild camping and just come home from two nights on a campsite.

    Have already picked up lots of tips and hints from this forum! Thank you.

    What a wonderful county you live in! I'd be a bit worried driving a motorhome on your narrow roads though in case I clipped a Cornish Hedge!
    Welcome!

    welcome to the fun Esmeralda from across the border where we do cream teas proper like, hee hee. Bill, coaches are up and down the west country roads and lanes all of the time. A man of your undoubted experience would have no problems with a mere motorhome, hee hee.

    Oooh Wildman - I wouldn't want to drive on them Cornish motorways - you know, the ones that have a lane for people driving in both directions ;-)!

    Hi @Esmerelda,
    Welcome to our forum from motorhomers in the St Austell area.
    Fancy our weekend rally at Carnon Downs for the Great Cornish Food Festival next month? A good opportunity to put a few faces to names. There again, maybe not such a good idea. We've got a bloke called @DuxDeluxe coming. That may put you off before you've settled in.
    Stef.

    Welcome from up the road in England. You have probably now realised you have your five free pot-shots at Funsters on here and if you want to keep playing you have to send £10 to some bloke in Wales. Fortunately, the exchange rate is quite good at the moment - 10 leeks to the pastie. :)

    @Esmerelda - Mrs Deluxe is the nice one and she is coming as well. Don't listen to @StefAndDi, they are a bunch of trouble makers, Pirates, wreckers and brandy smugglers....... :whistle:

    Edit - and they like pasties with carrots in them.....:imoutahere:

    Oh no - just seen the dates for the Cornish rally in September - unfortunately can't make it as we have to take our son back to uni that weekend.
