Just joined today

Post by duetto on Sat Jan 10, 2015 8:18 pm

Started camping many years ago in early 80's by buying a tent on impulse after going into millets to buy an anorak and they had one set up in store. That weekend took it down to cornwall only to find a frame tent with scaffold poles a nightmare to put up. Saved by other campers who helped out, following two camping trips were a wash out with heavy rainfalls. sold the tent & got an eriba caravan and had a tow bar fitted. A week later booked a holiday with eurocamp in la Rochelle, France. [never towed or driven abroad before]. Took a late night dover - calais crossing and travelled through the night, well got as far as Rouen and got lost, roads were deserted, even hotels had front doors locked, so just guessed, eventually found ourselves near lemans and picked up the route again [no sat navs in those days].

Had a great holiday and got into camping with enjoyment. Several holidays later started to tire with towing the caravan and had seen so many motorhomes on site saved up a deposit and bought a duetto. Never looked back have enjoyed some great holidays.

We both now have ongoing health problems so do not camp so much.

One of my several health problems is chronic cluster headaches its quiet rare if any members suffer from this dreadful condition would be keen to hear from you and how this affects your camping.

Welcome to the forum even if it will be short-lived. Such a shame that you have to give up motorhoming. Hope you find the right buyer for your Duetto.     handshake

Hi there,

Welcome from a very windy Skegness. keep_cool keep_cool keep_cool keep_cool keep_cool

Most people over 55 years of age start having some health problems .... tap_fingers  tap_fingers
