So, by my reckoning, if you were approximately 18 when you started work as a H&S manager worked there for 40 years before retiring to become a pirate in the Caribbean in 1972 you are (at least) 100 years old and still driving a Hymer GTI Turbo!!!
I think you are certainly entitled to your opinions and with your years of experience must be a font of wisdom.
May I respectfully make a suggestion.......I think that the Hymer GTI Turbo may be a bit too nippy for you at your age, maybe you could drive it with the handbrake half on.....or maybe buy a Swift

Thought it was a wind up all along, but thought it was OP Geriatricbackpacker amusing himself \'cause he\'s stuck in his van in the rain.

Nice one barryd

I was chief H&S officer for Gateshead Council for 40 years before leaving to be a Pirate in the Caribbean Islands in 1972. I can tell you a thing or two about H&S (and Pirates, who also take H&S seriously these days). Some people think they can go into Europe and just do what they like and Johnny Foreigner wont do anything because he is all foreign! [/quote:685122d247]

Troll. Must be over 100 and been promoted at a very early age!

It is that Geriatricbackpacker! He\'s definitely the trouble maker here and made me do it! Sack him.

I think he might be a Fruitcake.

He\'s definitely a Fruitcake and it takes one to know one barryd !!!

Terry,
Sorry to hear you\'re having bad weather down there, if it\'s any consolation it\'s pi$$ing down here in Norfolk !! Suggest you try breaking the rules over the border in Portugal

The rain was OK it was the hailstones bouncing off the roof that finally flipped me. We were actually driving in icy slush yesterday with next to zero visibility, I reckon its that bloody solar panel I put on the roof attracting the clouds! Much better weather today, had a walk around Morella and the castle today and will kick back and see if I can finish off the last of the French wine.

I have to say that I really don\'t know who Barryd is or know anything about Fruitcakes other than they are a cake presumably liked by trolls.

I know realise why I will not be renewing my subscription when it runs out in November after 10 years.

There is none of these shenanigans over there.

Thank you for that information I did not know there where other motorhome forums. How many are there ? Us Norfolk must get out more.

I,m Registered on other forums not related with motorhomes where threads don't get spoiled as they often seem to on here now and by the same few people.
Still they have moderators who do a good job as this forum once had.
