PostSubject: Time to part with Ginger   Wed Jun 03, 2015 3:42 pm

As a few of you heard at the Sleepover I was thinking of selling Ginger. Well after a chat with Ian at VWKampers and after one hell of a fight with myself trying to make my mind up I've decided it's time for her to fly the nest and move on. Don't worry I'm not getting a T5

Would like to thank everyone on here for being properly awesome both on the forum at the events. You haven't seen the last of us though, will still be hanging around here and popping along to some events

Sorry to read you have made this decision - it must have been difficult. Sad
We too were hoping you would keep Ginger when hearing the news at the weekend.
Glad to hear you both will still be around - both on here and at events.
We will miss you and your technical updates!
All the best

Well this is sad news. You've been an inspiration with all the tech ideas brought to completion.
Thanks for all your help.
Best wishes to you both.
And I do hope you can keep in contact.

You probably feel better now that you've made the decision. It must have been a real heart v's head battle.
I know you want to stay with the VW scene so I'm sure we'll see you at an event or two.
Going to miss your fiery balls! Very Happy

You two will be sorely missed - good luck with the sale - and don't become strangers.

Very sad news. I know that none of us would be here if it wasn't for Tim, but specifically we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you two wandering up and introducing yourselves at VW Stoner in 2011.

We had no idea until that point that there was a 'special' club for Brazi Bay owners, so for that we are forever in your debt.

Stay in touch, feel free to pop in if you're ever near Reading and if you need a Brazi Bay adventure in the future I'm sure Tallulah will be up for it. Besides, our joint DJing adventure is just getting started!

Didn't see that coming, very sad news indeed, but understand.

Thankyou for all the hard work and input you have provided from the start.

Good to know you are going to hang around, The Forum needs you for your technical and electrical expertise.

Hope to meet up again in the future and best wishes.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. It's been a really tough decision but she just doesn't get used much anymore. Time to let someone else enjoy her

If you are suffering withdrawal symptoms too much you can always come and play with Bessy! Its a lovely van, someone will be very lucky! Look forward to seeing you both in the not too distant future and still reading your posts on the forum......might have to change your strap line though!

Sorry to hear your news, but as the saying goes 'all good things come to an end'. It must've been a tough decision. It's been great to meet you and be inspired by your modding and electrical genius!


p.s. I'm not offended by a T5!

Our lives are full of seasons which come and go.....and as Terry Jacks said..you had joy you had fun you had seasons in the sun. Bob Dylan and the Bible said much the same thing.
Philosophical thought of the day from Mrs Bumble. Enjoy your new season

or the 1970's football version:-

"we had joy we had fun, we had (insert name of rivals) on the run,
but the fun didn't last as the b**tards ran too fast!" cheers

Non-philosophical thought for the day from Paul.

Dropped her off to Ian at VWKampers this morning.

Driveway is looking very empty.
