    • Username and other important upgrade information   09/23/2015

      Please note that the forum is still upgrading will be for most of the night I think,therefore you may find it slow at times, looking different etc etc. This will straighten out (he hopes) as the upgrade continues. One of the big changes is that usernames and display names will change.   At the moment you can have a username and display name for example you can have a username of joeblogsy and a display name of Joe Blogs.   After the upgrade we will only have usernames.   For some this won't make any difference at all but there are a fair few of you that have different display names., many of which I have changed for people for various reasons.   If, after the upgrade you notice your forum name isn't right please just send me a PM with your desired username.   You may also find you have been logged out, if this happens and you cannot remember your original forum details, please email me at mark@touringandtenting or open a support ticket by

    Happy days.
    Hubby had me use a Shakespeare Beach contender rod when fishing at Cley (Norfolk) this week. Loved it. Years old, but who cares,  I caught fish!!!

    Been a little busy
    Hi folks been a little quiet of late just been busy getting Maxine Motorhome all Spick and Span ready for our next trip 
    So 
    fitted a Tracker system with engine stop capability fitted and tested works fantastic and not too expensive either - see Rewire Security 
    Then we tried to get the two gas cylinders we have in the gas locker - the handbook says 2x13kg  - there is absolutely no way they fit being too tall and too fat so Stephanie had to open her purse 
    So now I have fitted a Gas-It twin 11kg system with external filler  just waiting for a gas company to arrive (Wednesday ) so do the require gas check and then we can fill them up
     
    So dry and canned food in boxes ready clothing all in soft bags (3 section boot tidies actually) under the bed 
    Fishing tackle all identified as wanted on journey and wooden tray made to hold the fishing rods safe in underfloor locker which is 6'6"" long
    Maxines garage sorted and re-sorted re-packed weight moved around 
     
    So now it's just a case of waiting for our departure date ti arrive 
    Yes the countdown has started properly

However somewhere between motor moving the van onto drive, plugging in the car and getting to site, it's no longer working :( It's only another night but does anyone know what charger/psu is used on the 2009 Supercyclone please? Will need to sort this fairly soon

  12. Gray added a post in a topic sea fishing   

    OK Sea fishing in the UK doesn't need a rod licence but some places do charge for day tickets 
    You need a Rod Licence for Spain and Portugal to sea fish and fresh water fish
    but not in France although you need one for fresh water and it is expensive
     
    Just trying to sort mine out now

    Don't think it's a particularly good time to advertise your building cladding panels in the UK...

    We were at Cley yesterday. Was lovely to get away from the heat. A lovely sea fret, a great hooley wind and a chop on the sea!! 
    Fell in love with my rod! An old Shakespeare contender beach castor!! Brill and it caught fish!! 
    Not a lot of fish jumping on our lines! Very small Mackie's and sand eels. That was it!

    The Girl on the train, I think this book is not very consistent with my taste, a little disappointed, I have been looking at the hand-made books

  25. MONTYSA added a post in a topic Sat nav   

    Hi
    Have Garmin myself it is very good Tom Tom is just as good I use my Garmin for speed warning as satnav in car you cannot add anything to it. Like the sound of the of the Xgody7 for the price.
    Just a little bit of thread. If you are buying new car and sat nav is extra to buy don't waste your money as you will end up using another for speed warning and camera's it is so annoying having two going at once.
    Happy Caravanning
