Now that I hv regain my composure from absolute panic, what am I go to do every day, to phew there are perhaps others who can put their small feet into these very oversize foot steps and perhaps the future will be OK and we can but put a bronze statue to the leader of the pack at the NZMCA in Rotorua.. OK I may be a bit over the top, but not by much really.. You hv done an amazing job of building one of the best forums in NZ... And it ain't easy, we know that.. Take your well deserved nap, sorry fishing trip, in your retirement and we all hope we bump into you on the trail.. Cheers Peter... Yes you hv not gone yet but time travels quickly.. So thanks from me and us all..

Thank you, but Enough! Enough!

I set up the forum to learn how to fix a leaking roof. An early suggestion was to fill the bus up with water and observe where it came out, but despite such set-backs we persevered - and look what you all made. :)

And now back to trying to complete the latest forum software update so that it is shipshape for a hand-over, sometime next year.

Love it!
Got to add my 2c worth.

I guess nothing stays the same.
Sorry to see you go,
Have to add my thanks to you for getting it started and your work down through the years.

A great resource has been created which is of huge benefit to lots of campervan/motorhome users.
But as usual I state the obvious.

Enjoy life after "The Forum".
And keep lurking!

Thanks, Robin.

Fully intend to. I enjoy it too much to think I could do otherwise.
I expect any change-over to take a few months to organise, so I'll be holding the tiller for a while yet. :)

Awwwww shucks, Mark! This forum was my first attempt at negotiating a forum, and I have gained such a lot from it over the years. You can certainly be proud of what you have achieved.
My heart dropped when I saw that you were intending to move on - BUT - I wish you and Kathy all the best wishes for your future adventures. I hope to catch up with you one day.
Safe and happy adventures to you both. Jeannie :TU xx

Sorry to hear of your decision Mark, but i know you must have your reasons. Many thanks to you and your mods for all the enjoyment we have had over the last few years. I know the forum will be in good hands with whoever is to be your successor. Good luck to you and Kathy with whatever you do..... :TU :D
