French Rallies
The French rallies were a great success and although we had to contend with some unseasonable weather and high river levels everybody seemed to enjoy themselves. The great dune at Pyla was climbed, coach trips undertaken, some excellent meals eaten and naturally a great deal of wine was consumed.

Our thanks go to Peter and Jan, Trevor and Margaret, and Derek and Angie for all their hard work in organising some outstanding rallies.

Full rally reports will appear in the next Newsletter

A Change of Direction 
     Forty years ago in in the very hot summer of 1976 Margaret, myself and children Mark and Sharon borrowed my parents Tent, packed the car and drove down overnight to Cornwall. I was hooked on camping, three Tents of our own, a VW Van; because I had now taken up Windsurfing; a Renault Camper Van, D35 Pilote Van and the last eleven years Geist Touring 55.
     After having had the Van M O T and Serviced and knowing everything else was up together, but wondered for how much longer and was it a time to call Motor Homing a day and pursue other avenues I thought I would find out how much it was worth. I did not want to sell privately so got in touch with an M/H Dealer on a Friday afternoon, Saturday afternoon it was collected and on sale  the following Tuesday. It took a while to realize what we had done, I shall miss my Van but we have made the decision, will live with it and move on. On the Wednesday booked a Coach Holiday
    Fifteen years belonging to the Pilote Owners Association has been such a wonderful experience, met so many people who have become great friends, some unfortunately who  are no longer with us. Rallies were always enjoyable, even the muddy ones, liked the fact went off to places would not have thought of going to and some never heard of.   
      Thank you everyone for making Margaret and myself membership such memorable and happy experience which we shall always cherish. Please do not lose touch if your down around Weston-Super-Mare get it touch, love to see you.
