No you are not. There is Learoy, Daveedin and jjroder. They mainly hang out in the SL Forum. Kensilver is from New Zealand, in case you are interested to know.

Hi elau Thanks for that mate.

Its nice to read the all the posts on this site and to realise how simalar we all are at the end of the day

I've only just got my first merc but i've been into the vw t25/t3/vangon thing for a number of years now and its good to see you have the same kind of love and enthusiasm for the mercs as we do for the vans.

We dont seem to have a site like this for mercs in the uk(unless anyone can tell me diferent).




ps, im sorry for my bad spellllinggg Most sites i use have a spell check facility!!!!!!!!

Howdy stwat,
Welcome to the forum. Another guy from England is Bear. He doesn't post often but he does lurk so you might hear from him.

Howdy stwat,
The weekend can bring on slow replies since a lot of people are gone. Also thetime of day can cause a delay. Some of us do sleep

Welcome Mr. stwat. Enjoy the pretty girls thread, we've put a lot of work into.

Its always good to hear from someone from the Old Country. I am of English heritage, in fact my great-grandmum was born in Somerset. Are you anywhere near my family's ancestral village of Wincanton?

Wincanton is in SW England, on the road between Exeter and London. I'm planning on a trip there in about a year or so.
