    Hi everyone

    Looking forward to joining in!

    We have an Autotrail Comanche which we've owned for 2 years or so but we haven't managed to use much! We're hoping to put that right!

    We're currently in a Villa near Moncarapacho in Portugal. Sadly I've had to have a right hip replacement (although only 56!) and we decided to rent a Villa for a month to aid my recovery! Also intended to have a good look around and see how people are using their Motorhomes over the winter in there areas. It's been very interesting seeing people in formal camps but also wild camping. Probably going to be controversial and say in general wild camping is not something we like the look of, there are some quite horrible 'camps' set up hereabouts that look dreadful. Topic for conversation?

    Anyway, happy to become part of the group and hope to add value!:thumb:

    Welcome

    Hi and welcome

    Your views on wild camping are not controversial to me - i have done a little and decided not for me unless absolutely stupendous spot well away from others AND safe - usually prefer the creature comforts too much and find a campsite.

    Welcome to the Fun place.

    In the 6 months we have had our MH we have "wild camped" 9 times and enjoyed it lots. I fully understand you not being keen, however unless you try it you will never know. If you don't feel safe ( a few times we have not ) move on or as we did booked into a site a few km away.

    Anyway enjoy we are having a ball. Next trip is back to UK for 2 months.

    Regards

    John
