    Hey @Fayefaye1429, I'm not living there but will be up in Scotland visiting family and passing Newcastle on way back during mid-July if it suited you?

    Turkey, way down between Greece and Russia,

    I need some pals around here, but there is no forums active, no one I know of. It is always good to be with people who knows what you are, and the ones like you are!

    There's another thread just started about meeting in person. I wonder if it might be an idea to have a section on the forum for arranging local meetings and groups, @Giverny ;)
