You cannot do much off roading in a computer.

I agree with a lot of what has been said.

I also stop past here every so often to see if there are any new posts that catches my interest. After our big trip it has been a bit quiet on the vehicle front, so don't have many questions to ask or specific information to look for. But that is exactly what I use the forum for - detailed information about technical, administrative, or visa issues, or to find specific information about border crossings, countries, fuel, or budgets.

I just asked a colleague of mine (a few years younger than me) if she was using FB. No, she said, I am using Instagram and Snapchat. She used to use FB, but then her friends started moving away from FB onto other social media so she did to. I think this is a general trend around social media.

I also think that there is a place for forums like this. Maybe they are not as active as they used to be, but maybe that is just a natural cycle? There is a huge amount of info on FB, but I don't always find it easy to search for. Forums, if they are well set up, provide a much better platform for storing and sharing information.

I will continue to visit this forum every so often, and to contribute if I have something to add.

The forum is not dead, long live the forum.

Happy trails

Nice plan Tuggy, thought for some time that Scandinavians countries are a good bet as they offer a new challenge to the baking heat and dirt roads that most people choose, near enough to civilisation, but far enough away for a challenge and some isolated off road driving in very different conditions.

Got a spare portable log burner if you get stuck but you will have to provide your own chainsaw.

i used to do norway regularly and i went last year...and im going to lofoton next year its a place i have always wanted to go.....and i have my chain saw......"} thumbsup

Cheers for the feedback Sheelah/Oyvind, nice to know you still visit and the forum's hanging on in there. You may have read that I'm off to Spain to live, so this and other forums will be my lifeline.
