Is that Orbit?

Added. Yes it must be, he's from the Aubusson area. Met him several times with his wife and also once with his daughter, possible Sam. Craig/Ventodue stayed at his bnB once. A really nice bloke.

Your right Chris it was Orbit, he was very active on the old site, and also found us again on the new site, RIP Martin, :rip

Has Sam got access to the forum? I emailed her my condolences and her reply implied that she hasn't been on it as she doesn't know how it works.
