    Hi,
    I'm Steve from Gosport.
    Originally from Cardiff, but did 26 years in the Royal Navy on ships and submarines. Finished my time in Gosport and stayed here.
    My partner Cathy and I have just bought a 1989 Fiat Ducato 2.5 diesel. We do not have a clue how any of it works - but that is the new adventure we are embarking on.
    Hopefully somebody will be able to advise on how I can get a user manual or idiots guide.

    We are looking forward to our first trip out. Not going very far until we get used to it.
    Exciting prospect, and something we have thought about for a long time.
    The idea of taking the motorhome out - anywhere we want - with the dogs and the unlimited freedom of choice of what, when and where we go. Who wouldn't be excited.
    Thanks
    Steve

    :welc: Just down the road in Fareham. Sure we will meet up for a wet sometime. :drink: MH is parked at Collingwood for the time being till I can re-locate it in Sultan where I am at present.

    Highly recommend the New Forest for your first outing. Not far and a great place. Just returned from Setthorns and maybe going back between Xmas and New Year. Welcome.

    Brilliant - my mate Del Rea is the Base Wo at Collingwood - he's promised me some camping goodies.
    Thought our first trip might be as far as the Kingfisher - but going to be a bit more adventurous
    cheers

    Finding out how everything works, and having a good laugh when you get it wrong, is half the fun. You won't regret it.

    Pay your subs for full membership here, best £15 you'll ever spend.

    Merry Xmas and a Fun New Year.
