[Your Founder Dougie]
Dougie, now in his 46th year has a background in cars primarily and originally involved in the old shape MINI, for many years moving on as his family grew to bigger vehicles and VW's mainly with many Caddies, Golfs both Mk 1's, Mk 2's and an odd Mk 3 added to the supplying good teething for what was to come next, always having a secret desire to be different, he harboured an idea to combine a Caddy with a camper as at this point not being able to affords any form of VW Camper it would be the only way he could combine his passion with a VW at least for the foreseeable future, enter stage left his 3-in-1 caddy pickup truck which very easily was a camper, pick up or van see Caddyshack for full details of what ended up being an absolute money pit after being ripped off badly when purchasing, not to be outdone he continued onwards until eventually in 2008 receiving gift from his father, which meant he could finally afford to buy a VW Camper, which came in the form of a 2000 series W plated Swb T4 2.5 Tdi called "White Noise" after being featured twice in Volkswagen Camper and Bus magazine in May and June of 07, and this is where it all started really for him and his passion for VW T4's in particular.
He is a family man, living most of his life in and around Glasgow with brief stints in Blackpool and Golspie [Caithness] amongst many locations in and around his native Bearsden and Milngavie [N of Glasgow city], where his parents still reside today, finally moving to his current home in Loch Lomond in 2002, now in the centre of the Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park, allowing plenty of scope for writing and web design as his two main hobbies anyway, suffering immense ill health making it impossible to hold down a full time job making this the ideal location whilst being the Founder, Webmaster and Editor of this website the ideal pass-time to keep the old grey matter functioning, whilst supplying a happy home for likeminded owners the ideal way to help others. Being unable to find the kind of online home he craved to spend his free time, after very bad experience at the hands of some vicious thugs and faceless bullies made his resourceful mind work overtime and come up with this very community in an attempt to combat all these things that keep many off-line and frightened to partake for fear of being shouted down for the odd spelling mistake, grammatical error or most likely of for all not pandering to owners/moderators egos.
[My Current T4]
Being a family man means he has the usual family things to do also but with a very understanding family a grown up son to house sit whilst we are away at shows or camping and a daughter, who is slowly learning to accept waving furiously at oncoming T4's and T5's as the norm, to wild-camp and not worry about her hair not being tonged or straightened, and a wonderful partner who without which none of this would be happening, who is a self confessed internet and VW widow, but continually backs my every move, meaning I am afforded the luxury of the time to do the job right, the way it should and mostly is in other circles of VW ownership FREE - RELAXED - FRIENDLY the way we started and intend to go on.
We shall of course looking into the future manage this task without any issues as no one is paid with the result there is no hierarchy, and no infighting any out sourcing of operations is done free of charge also by friends, colleagues and other VW loving fellow T4 or T5 owners for the better good of the entire community and not to raise any one company, above any other, individual or entities profile with-in the community we are all equals here and will remain so, certainly whilst I’m at the helm.
The only two things I ask of each and everyone of the members is that I am referred to as "The Chairman" not of the board but due to my inability to walk very far!!! and secondly that each member contributes and respects every other member as if one of their own, which will give us the required tools to forge forward to better things, "One for all, and all for one" ....
