I am a retired oldie too, 67, and you will never convince to join the 
multibillion US company Facebook.
I started th Rover Club of Sweden homepage many years ago, as well as 
some other web-sites.
But before retiring I handed over all those sites to other people to be 
able to enjoy my freedom, which has made me able to make long, long 
timeconsuming trips in our boat as well as in our Rover cars.

So what is Rovernet about?
As I see it it's a meetingplace for Rover-friends. A place where you 
get help with everything about Rovers. Or send a message to tell 
everyone how you have solved some problem with your cars.
What can be more easy and faster than that?

Sorry, You will not see me on Facebook.
