Being an 'old timer ', as well as a 'long time member' of the forum, I sure do know how important you were in the setting up of this forum that any fair minded person will admit has been the catalyst that has driven the vintage caravan hobby to where it is now.
Have you noticed we have a Hall of fame thread these days with your very first post in it inviting members to "fill all the spaces".... and that is what has been happening for just over ten years.
Photos ? ...There are quite a few on the forum from the early WA runs and this one I took when you swapped vans at Burra on the way home from the first Nationals at Morgan, remember that ?
You've had a hand in giving lots of people good memories Jenni, take a bow

Great to hear from you and see you back on the forum.
As you say, it's fantastic to see how Mark T's vision for a national vintage caravan forum has grown and flowered. However, you provided a lot of the 'techno-geek' skills in the early stages (you probably wouldn't call them that, but you were well ahead of most of us at the time) - learning how to manage the forum software, posting photos and information for new forum members, helping people to learn how to use Photobucket, etc...not to mention providing stories based on your vans, etc. One set of photos I particularly remember was when a wheel came off one of your vans - straight through the wheel arch! One of the photos was of your daughters standing beside the marooned and de-wheeled van looking d-i-s-t-i-n-c-t-l-y unimpressed with this vintage vanning caper!
We have a lot to be grateful to you for, which is why it is so good to see your post.
