    Hi guys, I just wanted to introduce myself, I've been exploring for around 7 or 8 years, very regularly initially, and whilst I still manage to keep going somewhere, it's getting less and less, which is a shame because I love the hobby. It's pretty dangerous to go alone, so I thought I'd hang out here, and hopefully join in on something that someone has organised, or make a couple of mates to organise things with.
    I've been on a couple of forums in the past, been ripped off, had some of my stuff stolen even, or mates that just couldn't be bothered in the end.
    If you're enthusiastic about this hobby, and can help include me in it a little, it would be nice. I drive, and am quite happy to be the driver for a trips to places, providing those coming will chip in towards the fuel.

    I know there are comments here, when people ask for people to take them places, it's not a tourist site, for sure, but without any contacts, it's hard to get out there and explore a hobby that you love.

    One site once organised a group meet, the one I went to was in Preston, it was great :)

    If you can see my point, and you've taken the time to read this, maybe just send a quick message, let me know I'm on the right track, it will give me the motivation to have some input here, and hopefully make 2016 my best exploring year ever ! :)

    Enjoy your night :)

    Welcome in Paul

    As you"re an old hand at this you probably already know what i"m going to say .......get some of your reports up on the Forum & create a presence. Interact on the Forum and the rest should follow ;)

    Seems a bit harsh getting done over :eek: what Forum was that FFS ?

    Obviously some people are also hesitant to meet/greet new members for similar reasons too those you have mentioned above.

    Look forward to seeing some reports :thumb

    And don"t forget to use the Search Box for locations

    Unfortunately I'm pretty poor with computers, and I found it really difficult to get photos hosted (is that the term?) and link to them to make a report :(

    Would like to know as well.

    mate, if you have the wherewithal to create an account and post messages, you can upload images and link them. Literally, upload them to Photobucket, get the 'BBCode' link and paste it where you want it.

    Thanks for your reply. I will in fact create a photo bucket account and learn how to upload images and link to them, do I also need to know how to resize those images too ? Or can they be resized as they're uploaded to the hosting site ? I did a bit with websites a number of years ago, so hopefully I can remember how to link to the images.

    The main thing is, I need a couple of explores and some photos first, something I'll be working on !

    Many thanks to your comments :)

    Paul
