    Sorry - I know where the ones are that we have passed, but not anyway of finding out.

    Maybe I am just cautious but if it reached the end of its cycle, I would hate for some low-life to make off with it while I was browsing the cheese and wine in the supermarket.

    Thanks Richard, I'm still around lurking. I'm glad that old post is still proving useful.

    I would have given you a 'like', but for some reason the button isn't responding - could be my security settings; I shall take a look.

    A lot of super markets have launderettes and its possible to sit in the van watching while your washing is being done, Once the cycle starts it won't open until it ends so you've no need to sit there all the time. B/F Poole to Cherbourg end of July mon to wed is 204 how much fuel to drive to dover and down to Cherbourg

    You are probably trying to click on the 'Like' that is not a link button. Look a little lower down & try clicking on that 'Like'.

Going to have to look at mifi or something similar.
    MiFi can have its advantages in terms of access wherever you have a mobile signal, but if you happen to be with BT for your Internet, you should have free access to the Fon network, which can be very useful, especially if on a budget.

    FON is great if you have a wifi antenna like an iBoost but as the roaming charges have been abolished (For now) you should be able to use your phone for a quick google (check with your provider) at the same cost as if you were at home but some restrictions on data usage may apply but for three weeks you should be fine. This can be really useful for just quickly googling for information on your locality when you turf up somewhere or even as your wandering about.
