The prodigal son has returned to the fold. A quick g'day from an old member who has seen the error of his ways and rejoined after an absence of quite a few years.

I'd taken up the bad habit of lurking around in the background so decided I should step up to the mark and restore my membership.

Hooroo for now

Thanks cobber

A pleasure to be back, though I hope the tuck shop bitchiness and kindy capers of yesteryear are well and truly history. I'm sure I'm not the only one who got thoroughly sick of it all at the time.

Cheers

Rosco

Mate if you have been lurking in the background you would have seen that it is a much more subdued site than it was on occassions in the past.

A better class of manners and perhaps A bit less testosterone.
A few more girls on here lifting the tone of the place as well.

Cheers, Bruce.

Thanks Bruce

My lurkings have only been somewhat recent in nature, though I have noticed a significant improvement in manners in general which is a welcome change.

I certainly have fond memories of both good natured forum based banter and face to face contact with other members.

No doubt that aspect remains and I look forward to a more active involvement.

Cheers

Thanks Heather

I'm sure I'll enjoy my "lurk free" status.

Cheers

Hi Rosco

I am a relative new comer to the site having sat in the background reading other peoples posts for a few years.

I have always resisted online forums of any kind, including facebook and twitter etc. I finally decided to become a member because of the lack of "the tuck shop bitchiness and kindy capers" and the openness that 'members' are prepared to exhibit on this site. The wealth of information that people are prepared to share is incredible.

Sure there is the Toyota/Nissan and 4WD/Softroader type rivalry - but name a campsite anywhere that it doesn't come up! Difference here is that it is usually in good humour - both given and taken.

Look forward to reading some of your posts.

BTW noticed you have a UEV 490 - mine arrives on 15 December (I'm like a 6 year old at Christmas). Would love to know what you think of it, any issues etc

Cheers

Thanks for the welcome Anthony.

You're correct about the old Tojo/Nissan friendly banter and I'm sure you can imagine what I copped, given that I was a Landy driver at the time. Never mind, I simply put it down to the ramblings of the hordes of the great unwashed LOL.

Re the 490, I'm sure you're keen as mustard. We've had ours for quite a while now (it was No. 4 on the import list). As a result there were a few minor issues to be ironed out, but as has been said by many other happy campers, Dan and the boys can't do enough to ensure you're happy with their product.

No particular issues that I can think of, other than the canvas arrangement over the kitchen area, which leaves a bit to be desired in wet weather, though I believe the lads are working on that particular issue.
