    Hi everyone. Just found the website by chance. Thanks to James Brown (not the real JB !!!)
    for my welcome message.

    My wife & I moved up from London in 2006. Always loved this part of the world and one of my sons lives here.

    Best move we ever made. I retire in 31 working days time (not counting:Blush:)

    We bought our campervan in July. its an ideal size as its going to be our only vehicle. and its also got 2 seatbelted seats in the rear ideal for the grand kids. And just about big enough for our English Setter. Bramble..

    Done a few trips but weather hasn't been great when we had a chance to get away.

    Looking forward to going wherever & whenever next year. Anyway,Hello again and looking forward to getting involved in motorhomeFun

    Hi and welcome Plattypus

    You have found a super site but just remember the more you put in the more you can get out of it.

    We know the feeling of just a few days to retirement, we did it eighteen months ago and have no regrets whatsoever.

    We are off as often as we can with our little motorhome and our pointer dog and we hope you can derive the same pleasure as we have.


    Lynda and Alan

    That's why many of us head into Europe. Trouble is that's not always a guaranteed solution. Nothing worse than being stuck in a tin box with someone pouring lead shot on the roof.

    Hello!!

    Welcome to Cumbia, though I'm at the other end!! You'll love the place. I've been "back" for just over 20years now, after a spell in Milton Keynes and a loooooooooooong time on Merseyside. Was born in Barrow so I know Ulverston quite well. Take care out there, Charles.
