Hi J.C. back in the right place at last with my thread ? hope to see you sometime
this year as the old gel should be fully functional with the new rear tyres & the
uprated front brakes best regards to all the gang.

Hi J.C. yes still down south, this is where i pop my clogs, we moved down here to
be closer to two of the Daughters & nine of the Grandchildren, i just love it, we
are about two miles from the waters edge & the same from Portsmouth dockyard,
including the submarine museum Nelson's Flagship the Victory & many other atrac
tions like the hill forts, what a wonderful view from up there, am redoing my rear
brakes as all the discs have gone Rusty because of lack of use & the salt air,
love to you & all the gang Raymondo.

Hi J.C. just looking back at the beginning i started posting a couple of weeks before you in 2012,
what a long way we have come since then, we have been through a lot of ups & downs, but we
have persevered through thick & thin, your camper is looking absolutely great, where as mine is
looking a bit tired but with a lot of TLC she could still turn heads once again, it would be great
to meet up with you in the not to distant future, i still have things to do but they don't stop me
driving it, the last time i took it out for a run i went to Brighton, a round trip of about 104 miles,
i did give it a bit of stick on a duel carraigeway & tried the brakes out at high speed, they worked
perfectly & stopped in a straight line with no effort at all, on the way back i went round corners
at far in excess of what a camper shoud do on a sharp bend but it was like driving a car, very fast,
i would love to take you & Mutley for a spin sometime, it is so efffortless to drive with the super
power steering auto box & fantastic brakes, i just love driving it, look forward to meeting you &
the gang soon, happy Transiteering to all.
