    Not for us.
    Say goodbye to Family in Altrincham.
    Aim for Portsmouth. Time departure to avoid M6 mad hours.
    Break journey at Banbury.

    Continue to Pompey,avoiding rush hours.

    Overnight in Portsmouth.

    Ferry to Northern Spain, if it's practical..This year, no availability. Ouistreham gets you into warmer nicer country,with less of a drive.
    Plenty of stopping places along the N84.
    We're having a couple of nights on one.. A flooded Quarry with fishing lagoons,a bar and flat hard standing. Perfect peace and quiet. I'll post details soon.
    Too busy drinking wine and listening to Test Match Special, on long wave. Come on, Jimmy !!

    Sounds lovely in September, not so sure about January!!

    Just in case some are not aware. Radio on Internet doesn't eat much of a data allowance.
    radiofeeds.co.uk gives a choice of streaming speed and just about every BEEB
    station in the UK, and most others besides. Been using this since the 3 mobile mob introduced
    the Feel At Home service. I think BEEB LW power output has been attenuated in the last few years,
    and MW is very hit and miss especially in s. France and much of Spain.

    Agree entirely.
    There's something about TMS on Long wave.... A bit like listening to an old 78 RPM record ?
    It also saves data, which we can use for binge listening, Youtube and Jango, the day before the allowance runs out.
    We're just north of Niort and the daytime signal is pretty fragile. OK after dark.
    Probably won't be audible as we head south.
    Then we'll use the BBC I player radio.

    January is normally OK on the Spanish Med', it's February when it can get rough, that's the time to hop over to Morocco!.

    That's where I'm hoping to be Feb & Mar.
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    I meant travelling down through France sounds lovely in September, we didn't enjoy it much when we drove down in January. Heading for the Algarve again after New Year, hoping for a better winter than the last two have been

    The rate that we're travelling, it could be February, before we get down there, unless The Child Bride gets her foot down.. Leaving Puy Du Fou tomorrow... Perhaps?

    Ahhh !
    Crossed the border at Irun, after delays and a slow time using the new Bourne on the Bidart aire... Brand new, high tech, and already falling to pieces.
    Hit their rush hour and had a sat nag inspired white knuckle ride to the top of a hill, overlooking San Sebastian. There's a patch of flat land, no bigger than a sailor's hanky.
    We managed to tessellate ourselves in with two smaller PVCs.
    Goat bells ringing, sunshine and a sweet breeze.
    Opened a cool bottle of cider and decided to stay a couple of nights.
    It's not where you live... It's HOW you live..
