    Always thought that was unfair, to take my little camper through the tunnel costs the same as a bloody great Concorde Liner.
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    Like Alan I,m within 40 mls of Plymouth so tunnel would have to be free to even get considered. We sailed to Santander in Dec for the first time and won,t be driving thru France in winter again. For price you really need to check their web site as a day can make a difference

    but i am a travel club member .
    i always try to get the pont aven boat then i dont need a cabin just pay for a seat.
    usually going in november reduces it to about 425 quid .total.
    I went in february(Portsmouth-Santander),7m van with a pet friendly cabin and it came to nearly a grand.

    you do have to play around with dates etc . i normally go in november come back april .
    like i said pont aven ,then no cabin . used to be about 30 quid for a kennel each way for my dog but havnt got one these days . only me .
    but again car /caravan allow 11mtrs as there shortest length. i,m in there . but do have to pay extra for height .
    my mini artic is actually only 9inches longer than a mazda bongo pulling a 12 ft caravan i had here. the overlap makes a good difference.
    but go later in the summer and yes things go berserk price wise.

    Oh, that's not fair
    Ok, the oppytinery--------------------Landivy for a few nights using a friends place, then off to Giverney (cos' Sue loves the place) for a couple of nights and then over to Albert and the cemetery at Poziers to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Sue's granddad being killed in the 2nd battle of the Somme. That's all thats planned. Then we are off in search of some sun and will stay away until either the money runs out or we are close to killing one another, no fixed itinerary, although there are a few places that we would like to visit. But I promise from the heart of my bottom to do my best to avoid you, I to am much too old for shocks

    Thanks for the warning, Peter.
    .

    We think you are very brave and strong minded to be visiting the battlefields in deep winter. We did Albert, Cambrai and the Friday night at Menem Gate, Ypres... A must do if you can make it. It was a wet, cold October and made us mindful of the conditions that those poor, innocent young men had to endure, even when not in the trenches.

    If the money doesn't run out, and you don't have a domestic, We hope you do get some sun.

    Just let us know if you're approaching the East Algarve. We have had a number of bad influences down here, more to come, and may have to do a runner.

    Safe journey, only pleasant adventures.
    It's not where you live... It's HOW you live..

    off to Giverney (cos' Sue loves the place)

    There's a good vintage stationary engine museum just up the road from the garden entrance free admission whether it's open out of season I'm not sure but a good place to pass a hr while she's in the gardens

    You shoe-horn seven illegal immigrants into the shower at a grand a head.
