    we picked our van up yesterday and we're so excited about using it, although tonight is in the carpark sharing a chilli and few bottles of wine with friends,as our teenage daughters are having a party tonight and didn't fancy being away from the house!!!

    can't wait to meet some of you at the rallies.

    Isnt it just such a wonderful feeling. Most sleep in their MH somewhere or another in their first night. For us it was only the driveway but still very exciting.

    Remember to protect the water from frost and drain down the system if you wont be using it.
    Heres to fun times ahead! :)

    Well that came around quick, but I expect the last few weeks dragged by.

    You really must let us know what you forgot to put aboard on your first trip. For us it was a bottle opener and we made some great friends knocking on the door of a Hymer and begging for a borrow.

    See you out there Di............ Griff :party2:

    Congratulations! We just bought out 2004 kon-tiki a few weeks ago and rushed up to a beautiful site at Devil's Bridge (just north of Aberystwyth) to try it out! Stayed 3 days and then rushed back there the following weekend to try it again! Magic!
    Very Best Wishes - enjoy yourselves while you can!
    Gerry
