Rick Lomas is blogger and content supervisor on this web site MotorhomeFreedom.com. He was born a long time ago in Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England. He lived around Staffordshire until 1980 when he went to live in Cardiff and then the following year in Aberystwyth, Dyfed, Wales. Here he worked as a bass player in a band called ‘Tony Lamb’s Boogie Box’ and eventually moved a few miles up the coast to Borth. Borth was Rick’s first taste of living in a caravan, in fact it was a static caravan at Ynyslas. Rick shared the caravan with Mike Mullins and had a great summer in 1983.
Rick left Wales in 1984 and lived for a short while back in Stoke-On-Trent with his parents before moving onto Coventry.
After Coventry Rick moved ‘down south’ to Finchley, London. In 1985 Rick went to Hatfield Polytechnic which is now known as The University of Hertfordshire. Rick studied Electronic Engineering where his interest in the UNIX operating system was to prove useful later on. At the time his home was in Radlett, Hertfordshire where he remained when he then got a job working as a Unix Systems Administrator for Reed Elsevier in Clerkenwell, London.
The money from the job in London was sufficient for him to buy a 1 bedroom flat in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, where he lived from 1989 until 2001.
In 2001 Rick left the UK to live in the ski and mountain resort of Serre Chevalier, France. In those days there was a campsite called Le Caravaneige, in Chantemerle, near Briançon where he spent two winter seasons in an Eccles Amethyst caravan. In France Rick enjoyed skiing, mountain biking and working on his online businesses. It was a chance meeting with Andrew Hughes who runs a highly successful motorhome hire business based in Cambridgeshire that really got rick into the motorhome idea. The meeting with Andrew served to be a great amalgamation of skills, enterprising spirit and ambition. Rick’s main focus is the motorhome hire business and the promotion of business for Andrew Hughes is his main work.
Rick Lives with wife Susan, a writer and artist, his daughters Madeline and Rosalie. Rick has a Mooveo Motorhome in the UK, an Eccles Amethyst Caravan in Spain and a Ski Chalet in France and spends roughly equal amounts of time in these 3 countries. Rick now works full time online on a handful of sites, mostly about travel and entertainment. If you wish to know more see Rick Lomas on Google+.
