    hi guys, well the time is near for me to dissapear again , i think this winter is gonna be a mixture of spain and portugal, thinking of benedorm for starters, then work my self down into porky, around early feb i hope. i know i have a few rvoc,ers to hook up with, is there anyone else going, if so should see you around algarve ,maybe albuferia, and i will try and keep my updates going this time, as i lost touch last time, thats due to having so much to do and enjoy, rite now ive been dooing a mini tour of ireland, with a few funsters in tow. and now i,m at hook head light house, listening to the sea pounding off the rocks, just me and two other campers, google it, well worth a look. and i,m on the live webcam, its wild camping at its best,, no facilities at all , but thats the way i like it, i might even do a few piccys tomorow, if i can work out my new phone, then on monday, we are off to rosslare , gonna base ourselves there and use the car for the duration of of the week till sunday 6th oct, then its the high seas for the journey back, anyways time for the labba, thats bed in irish, ye all have a good night,:Smile: posted on rvoc s well'

    Hi doc, We hope to be in Benidorm on La Torreta in November for 30 days, then who knows. At least Benidorm will be open then :Cool:. If you do decide to do La Torreta they can take your rig and they have wifi.

    Derek, if your heading to/from Benidorm way call into this place:

    http://www.areaautocaravanas.com/

    Great site will have no problem fitting your MH in with the car trailer as well. The young lady owner is really nice.

    We will not be in Portugal until early December if you about. You have my mobile so call when your in Spain around the Alicante area and we will pop over for the day.

    This is a good plan. If you can't have a good time in Benidorm you'll never have a good time. If you like Chinese you'll not get better food and nicer people than here....

    For all you Funsters heading south, don't forget there is a decent stopover with a big welcome (and discount) for you at Parc Verger, not far from Limoges. OK, we're a site and not an aire, but its safe and quiet, ideal for breaking your journey.:thumb:
    Hope to see some of you in the months ahead.

    My people have contacted the Algarve authorities and they are now organising a load of bunting and red carpet so as to be ready to welcome the return of The King Of The Algarve no matter when it is.
