Re: Welcome Bert Wilde

Hi Bert, Welcome to the real Noahs Arc There are still a few of us left on here that have not deserted this wonderful site to the FBI's world-wide surveillance network they call facebook. How different things are today compared to the best communication we could manage in the troop then was about 20...

Re: Motorhoming for Bill Bentley

Pinky, John Wayne, his horse and Indians. I drove down to Monument Valley in the Navajo Indian Nation on the Arizona-Utah border near to the four corners. I'd booked a personal guided tour starting from the Monument visitor centre supposedly to see parts the public are not normally allowed into. Sur...

Re: Motorhoming for Bill Bentley

Hi Tony, Yes we are still here but our wanderlust is as strong as ever. There will be plenty of time for roots when we are scattered somewhere together. Thank you for your regards. I prefer touring with comfort so to that end our next trip is to the the outer Hebrides when the weather improves. The ...

Motorhoming for Bill Bentley

Hi Bill, Some time ago you asked if I had any motorhome tips. After 3200 miles of quite enjoyable touring around England and Southern Scotland I do have some points to make. With the benefit of experience I can say we have been there and done it (enough anyway). After some discussion we have sold ou...

I am so thankful to be so well and feel heartfelt for those comrades who have passed before me. At the moment Margaret and I are on wal...

Re: Done and dusted

Hi Tony, We are not intending to return to Canada but still have the wanderlust so an extended holiday is certainly not out of the question. Other locations for a move have also been considered but we cannot decide where. Looking back over our last 50 years together we have moved on average every fi...

Re: Done and dusted

Thank you for the well done Ian guys...I just hoped to get any response. I did not ever drive a Stalwart myself but I did command the bridgelayer tank in about 1968 with Billy Ash driving. He was actually the expert and we did get to deploy the bridge now and then. Except for the time we were stuck ...

Done and dusted

It seems that this website is done and finished by popular choice. It's a shame that something that was so uniquely our own has fallen into non use by the attraction of the facebook monster. My regards to those few stalwarts that has tried so hard to keep it going. Ian Neilson... Alive and well, nea...

Re: Where has everybody gone

Hi comrades, I'm here too, always have been. It has been lonely for awhile except for Tony, Pinky and Bill mainly. Sorry Quassie is no longer here to entertain and inform. Hi Malcolm (Sammmy) long time no see, not spotted you in Crewe since I got back from Canada and now that you are moving away we ...
