I know I've been promising it for ages, but I'm just putting the finishing touches to it now and it will go live this weekend. Essentially it will be a place for those looking for someone to meet and travel with. All kinds of travel and holidays. You might just want to travel with someone for extra security, or extra fun. Certainly most agree that travel adventures shared are just so much better. Whatever the reason the site should enable you to get to know your travel partner as much as practically possible before committing to meet them properly and planning the travelling.

There will be a charge for accessing the site, but this will essentially be used as a vetting tool for confirming real names and addresses etc. While I've not decided what the charges will be yet I am looking to give some complimentary slots to subscribing Funsters who can get the ball rolling and test all aspects of the site. So if you are a subscriber here as well as a solo traveller and are interested in helping establish the site then please let me know by way of PM. Thanks (y)

Wonderful idea Jim. Once I get through New Year if you still want help and there is anything I can do to help I will be there. I won't be able to help re going abroad though till anything happens to mum as I need to be here.

It will take some of the worry out of travelling for females who often feel if seen regularly with another male traveller it can be misconstrued .. this way it is a recognised as a friends travelling club. Well done.

Jim , has it have to be only for solo motorhomers and related to the solo travellers forum?

I would be happy when away in France to see if anyone would travel with me if at the same time in the same area.
Or is it just for people who are going to travel for a long time together?

Hi Frankie, hopefully the site will cater for a broad range of requirements. I envisage the following uses;

People who motorhome and want the security of a two or more vehicle convoy.
People who don't have a motorhome but would like to travel in one.
People who want to follow someone who is an experienced traveller
People looking for a new life partner.
People looking to share a holiday experience

Clearly at the start it will be motorhome biased, but eventually I hope the site will cater for all sorts of people, travel and holiday types. (y)

I'm a newbie
Sound great - If I was in a small convoy I would prob feel ok about driving abroad!
I went with a small very informal group to Spain & France last year - we all showed interest in a hol of this kind, but via another forum, and we just went for it.. absolutely great time & we're going back to Spain & this time to Portugal too.

hi jim, im on your new site ,trailmates..
still not got my head round it completely...it was introduced via the solo section on fun ,and I believe you asked for interested solo members of fun to express an desire to help get the site off the ground..
my question is, is it a solo exclusive site....
reading the home page it seems not, but I have not seen a definite reply to that question..
if it isn't solo exclusive , then why will people pay a further membership subscription when everything else can be done on the current fun site, ie go to normal meets, build up a circle of friends and arrange any travel/holidays to suit.....
would love to hear what you and others think, and help me get my head round it :unsure:

ps .how about a years free subscription for the volunteers :D

Hi what I good idea
I have been traveling on my own for some time now and find it quite a lonely experience and would welcome companions to share in our motorhome travels .
I have traveled abroad frequently and know the ropes quite well and would be happy to help others in there quest for expiration abroad
Remember you have to take a chance if you want to enjoy motorhome life
