    The way it was......

    Let me begin with an apology to Rob & Laith. Both their posts got derailed a bit, probably due the excitement of the new ownership/ old members coming back/ a new trip etc. I 'spouse what I'm trying to say is this is how it was in the "early days", a trip report would lead to a semi hijack & next thing you know a new trip was up and running feeding off the interest generated by the 1st one. There was plenty of BS ( no, not the 6B&S kind !!!), banter ( nothing nasty, always jovial digs at each other etc). There was always something going on, the place was "alive". Then things changed................
    What "newer members " ,for want of a better way to say it, are seeing I think is an inkling of what Adventurers was like in the beginning and ,hopefully will return to ,that is one of the best places to hang about with great people doing great things & having a great time !!! I for one think we are in good hands with the admin team, time to make the place ALIVE again

    Very well said Bev. We were very new to 4wding when we originally joined and not only did we learn a lot from members but we made life long friends and had some of our best times on trips organised through this forum. I am so glad to be back and I'm busting to share a campfire and have a laugh with members new and old.

    Here Here I'll second that

    That's exactly how I remember it also Bev well put

    I cant wait to get away with the crew new and old though it will be some time for me at this stage with a new family member set to join the ranks in the next three weeks exciting times ahead for myself and family

    I will do as much here as possible over the coming months and keep my fingers crossed I can slip away for a weekend get together sooner rather then later

    Exciting times ahead great to be chatting with everyone here again

    Hijack away Rich, might end up with a sale out of it !!!!
    Also just to clarify, I'm in no way having a go at the "new blood". We were all new once, though at the time this site started a lot of early members knew each other from another site so we had a head start on the characters we were dealing with.
    Anyway, Xmas is done, kids are going back to school, things are getting back to normal. Time to start doing some camps,day drives, social catch ups etc. Whatever tickles ya toes, throw out a bait & see who bites. Some great meets have started from very small beginings.
