Hi nightrider, welcome aboard. As you go along you will realize that most of us dont know much, either.Some will have you believing they do,but you know the saying'Empty vessels make most noise' Mick H.

P.S if a problem pops up just post a question, somebody knows.

Nice one Malcolm,
ours is the same except it is two years older, went VeeDub after struggling with the lack of driving fun with the good ole Sevel range. Nice vans reliable - but Fiat arm have dreadful dealers and weren't any good for cruising over about 55 [the vans not the dealers ]. Has done about 50k miles, we used to do about 9-10k a year but we've had a couple of quiet years as well; tend not to do much in the UK anymore which has reduced usage by about 3k a year.

Why not start by trying to upload a profile image (little piccy on the top left of the thread, mine is the five dogs, at the moment,always changeable though.) this will be a good learning curve to uploading all your holiday snaps that we like looking at. Mick H.

Unless you really want all 430 from our recent trip?

No? I thought not!

Yes they did Jackie - twice - but I recharged them.

It's only 430 because I deleted the other 350 that were not so good!

I always believed that quality is more important than quantity Dave!

Bigger isn't always better - and we were only away for 45 days - and it did rain on one of them!!

Hymer C 9,

Got name of nightrider cos of our habit of driving thru the night down to Devon, Cornwall and Dorset. If for example we go to the Moreton campsite near Weymouth which is 300 miles from home we have two or three stops to rest up and have a brew and hit the site at about 11.30am.

Unfortunately I am the opposite of you, my one and only misbegotten son has already spent his inheritence and my lump sum pension as well.

Do you mean the 'quote box' like this one?

We use it to answer a specific post, as sometimes the conversation can move on before we've replied.

Instead of pressing 'reply', you can press 'quote', then edit the relevent bits before adding your own reply.

good 'ere innit?????????????????

have you sorted out the avatar bit - using J9's invisible ink

I'm not sure what she was referring to but when you edited your profile from the 'control panel' to show address n van info keep going on down the page to where it sez
'upload profile image:'
then click on the browse button to upload the image
there are restrictions on size - can't remember what they are - but it needs to be pretty small

see ??



ps - our first house as a married couple was in Helmshore - about a million years ago
