Leaving the Forum.

Post by micknhilary on Fri Sep 26, 2014 9:33 pm

Its with considerable regret that I have to say that, for personal reasons, I have had to give up motorvanning.
With your consent I would like to stay a member so that I can keep abreast of the comings and goings of the Group.
Its been hugely enjoyable as well as being a comprehensive compendium of facts and advice. I briefed the very nice couple who bought my van on the usefulness of belonging to this site and don't doubt they will soon join.

Hi Mick, so sorry to hear you have to give up MH'ing, something we will all have to endure at some time.

All the very best, John.

Now that I am 'vanless' I would like to change my profile to show this fact. Could someone please tell me how?

Hi Mick,

If you look at the top of the page, just below the big blue banner, there should be a clickable link labelled "Profile".  Click on that and it will take you to your Edit Profile page.

The second box down the page is "Personalized Profile" in which there is a box (just below "Location") where you enter your Auto-Sleeper model.  Just set that to "None".

All the best,

Steve

Thanks everyone. I will most certainly be lurking not too far away.
Thanks also SteveUK. I have done as you directed and hopefully it will have worked.

With some regret I am leaving the Forum. We have enjoyed motor homing with our Clubman and it has now been sold. I am returning to boats and have already purchased one. The new owner of my van is already member of this Forum so the van hasn't left! Just a change of driver

Hi Thanks .I had a boat before a motorhome and really enjoyed 10 years on the river in a  Freeman. Similar quality to the old A/S Models.

Regards

To colleagues who are no longer going to be active Autosleepers, I send best wishes. But isn't it remarkable that they should wish to remain with us on the Forum? That reflects the friendliness and sense of community which sets this Forum apart. No wonder it's addictive! So we look forward to your future contributions, especially as they'll have the benefit of detached objectivity. Stay with us!

Hi there,

As with others, we are also ex-boaters who lived aboard for eight years before deciding that a motorhome would better suit our ambitions and bought "Petal".

I am always sorry to hear someone giving up the pastime (especially where "personal reasons" have intervened to stop the fun) but I like the idea of people staying on the Forum.

My reasoning is very simple.  The people who may leave the Forum are the same people that made the Forum what it is; so it seems illogical to me that if someone leaves it will have no impact.

Also, these people have owned an AS, sometimes for many years, and can therefore contribute to the general pool of knowledge that makes this Forum so helpful.

I wish the people involved all the best and encourage them to stay and contribute. champagnechampagne

Best regards,
drinksallround

PS

A prime example is that I really miss Murph (Brian) after his tragic death.

I reckon Brian would have been diving in with plenty of comments on the Thread about companies failing to provide gas for onboard gas systems; especially those that are using "tax differences" as an excuse.allthumbzallthumbz

I agree with all the above. Plenty of knowledge regarding AS's, which could be invaluable especially to new-comers, should not be lost.

I suspect there are a few of us who are boaters or ex boaters on this forum

Indeed!  i agree

In fact we first got into motorhoming when we became bored with occasional air travel home flyin to count the grandchildren, when we sailed our Moody yacht from Swansea to, and around' the Med. boat

The van provided the same home comforts and independence as the yacht, whilst giving us a wealth of insight into the countries whose coastal towns we had explored by bike, cycle but whose interiors were a mystery...I guess we are snails at heart and like to keep our shells with us.  camper

I echo the above comments about appreciating the amassed knowlege,of former A/S owners, even when life changes the priorities. 

When we gave up sailing, we were said to have "swallowed the anchor"  is there a comparative term for retired motorhomers?
