    Anyone had any experience with lonersgroup?

    Anyone come across Lonersgroup before? They're mentioned in this month's MMM, and they seem pretty active.

    Hello JimD,

    I haven't heard about them, but to be honest, I'm not keen on the name they've given themselves !

    I think I will stick with SMH & my widow/ers group, (who have Meets happening somewhere every month)

    Marion.

      Must admit I've never heard of them! Although they seem well established. Think I agree with Marion about the name.

      I've tended to avoid singles groups as I like to have couples and families as well as solo campers around me, it's more like real life!

            Not really relevant but they could do with a better website.

              I would agree Graham. I do not think this is a group for me!

                  Agreed, it looks as though their online presence is fairly new, maybe the webmaster is still learning the ropes.

                    Hi Jim,

                    Whilst staying at Devizes last year, I happened to meet a group that I think were the "Phoenix Camping Club", not the Loners but also designed for solo campers. They were very friendly, seemed to have organized activities that you were welcome, but not compelled, to join in with.

                    I didn't join them as prefer more freedom to do my own thing but if you are looking for this type of group they may be worth further investigation. Others on the forum may know more.

                      Yes, I'm sure you are right, we all have to start somewhere as Pauline and I know from building this site.

                      They look like a friendly bunch and website shouldn't put anyone off joining them if they want to, although if I was a single camper I would resent having to pay a yearly subscription when other organisations are free of charge.

                        the yearly fee covers the monthly Diary which is sent to each member each month giving details of all meets and tours and rallys,throughout the year.
                        They prefer this "private" way of doing things to an open forum,this may change if they get webmasters as good as G&P and the family of Moderators.

                            Loners not for me

                            Horses for courses I guess... The idea of joining a 'loners' group makes me cringe. But then, I am a bit of an introvert! I have now been campervanning solo for just over a year, and travelled about 5000 miles so far. I tend to go to CC and CCC sites if I can, and find other 'vanners a pretty friendly crowd. I've met some really interesting people en route.

                            People say "Aren't you brave to go alone?", but that isn't at all how it feels. The bravery I think is about sorting out all the van snags and dealing with people who are keen to sell you vans, alarms and equipment, but cold shoulder you when their stuff goes wrong! Doing that on your own does take courage!!

                            I have a stack of van-related stuff to sell, but don't want to open a Paypal account; any ideas? Do shift this elsewhere if it's in the wrong place Graham!

                            Happy travelling

                              I hear that a lot, and I tow a diddy caravan!

                              Sell your stuff on here through the 'for sale' bit for a small donation, also there's preloved. And even local ads in a free nespaper or the local newsagents. You only need paypal for ebay.

                              As for belonging to a 'loner's club' - I really don't need to join a club to be one, do I?!! I am often 'alone' but I'm rarely 'lonely'.
