    Hi Everyone
    I am an aging soloist (couldn't wait to get to retirement) part timer. I still have to work full time so get the usual holidays and weekends to get about. I got my Capri in March and I have only been away one day and one weekend so far! It's a dream I've had for a long time and am so pleased I took the plunge - well so far! It's such an adrenalin rush.
    Will have a look around this site but guess I'll be returning to this section often. Hope to meet some of you like minded people in the future - you all sound like a lovely group of people.

    Hi Elaine, and welcome!

    We use our old bus all the time, despite work, even if it's just to bimble around the coast locally for days out. Brilliant fun! :smiley:

    Wow! Thanks All
    Khizzie - love your quote. Gus-Lopez - just got back from La Romana, Spain (by air). Murcia is lovely. Simon - am often in Kent, had a look round the Hoo Peninsula recently. Carol - thank you, will look at rallies next.

    Welcome Elaine, hope you really enjoy your motorhome.
    I'm still looking for my first motorhome and I'm constantly scouring the sites for a Autosleeper Nuevo 2 berth. a few around but miles away.
    Best wishes from another Essex single lady.
