    just done a 510ml round trip to essex and and out of maybe 30 motorhomes only a handful gave me a wave on the motorway!!!!:Sad:
    is it because,
    A- too shortsighted to see over 6 lanes
    B- too afraid to take a hand off the wheel
    C- too busy argueing which offramp to take

    if anyone was on the A614, M62, M18, A1(M), A14, M11, M25 or A127 today or yesterday and did wave, then your the good guys, cheers.:thumb:

    I wouldn't take it personally Inever wave on Motorways and sometimes the Wife has to tell me that a Motorhome just waved and I did't even see the Van never mind the wave. Always do if I can.:thumb:

    We had more waves from German, Dutch and French motorhomers than British, this September in France.
    We are a miserable lot must be the weather.
    We wave at everyone, get some funny looks from white van men sometimes:Blush::Blush:

    it is getting more difficult to tell what is a motorhome now with all the fancy colour schemes coming out. i look for the roof ornaments, aircon box, sat dish, ect but it is embarassing waving at a fridge van. :Doh:

    We've noticed that very few people seem to bother to wave anymore. :Sad:
    Its a sad indictment on our selfish society that people don't seem to want to bother themselves to be friendly to fellow motorhomers on their travels.......we all miss a wave here and there, but I must say, it seems like very few bother to do it now:Sad:
