Hi, I have recently lost my husband to cancer, we both loved our motorhome, so I promised I would get out there and use it, I have not long returned from my first trip as a solo motorhomer, what can I say I have never felt so lonely in my life, so I'm just wondering if there is a group on this site that cater for solo travellers,  Many thanks

Well done on getting out there and trying to keep going, Toosca. It’s obviously a difficult time for you.

I get the impression that the Solos group has pretty much disappeared from this club but if you look through a few threads you'll find people in a similar position to yourself and suggestions of groups for solo campers. The Good Companions is one that springs to mind.

Hope Tinwheeler won't mind the correction but the solo vanning group to look out for is "New Companions" I put a link on a previous thread in this section.

I do hope you'll start to enjoy some trips out Toosca, I would imagine the first one creates many mixed feelings. I think others are finding their way out there too and I wish you all the best. Happier travels ahead. smile

Toosca, 

               If you browse in the SOLOs section you should find threads, feeds etcetera from the Solos Touring Group that Vivien ( aka Biscuits Mum, ), organised. Hopefully the Facebook section will still be running despite Viv having been very poorly a couple of years ago. It was a happy, convivial grouping, but did rely rather a lot on Vivien. Hopefully she ( and it ) will still be out there treating Biscuit her pup wink

 @toosca...I am going to the Chapel Lane meet refered to in the link above.It will be my first time. I believe the motorhome funsters usually have a good time! It doesn't mean being together all the time but there is an opportunity for company especially in the evenings. I think we plan to do some walking if you are interested in that. I can only be there from 13th to the 15th. I used to join in with the solo group on here but sadly it all fell apart some time ago.  I hope you will feel like giving it a try. ☺

If you do a google search several groups come up. I was a member of one which has since changed its name . I believe it’s now called New Horizons.

Toosca, I am very sorry about your loss, but not a bit surprised about your feelings about solo Motorhoming. I would find it just as solitary and isolating as you did.  If it were me I would sell the vehicle and do something else altogether, without trying to relive the past.  I hope your life picks up. Good wishes to you.

I don't know David but I suspect that she is unlikely to find this.
