    suggestions anyone ??????
    loads of good campsites on south coast of Sicily do good winter deals, my favourite one is 9 a night for over 30 day stay.

    Looks lovely but what is the weather like?

    Go for it Chriss, have a great time. Wish I was following you this year.

    South of France in Winter

    Hi Chris,
    We are going down there in January. Thank you for all the information you gave us last year, we should now be better equipt. We now run on French gas bottles and have had a solar panel fitted. As usual, we will be chasing the Brocantes , possibly we may be able to meet up with you which would be very nice, especially if are buying the wine!

    Off on Monday down to Dover Park and Ride for the night, have a look round Canterbury on Tuesday and then through the tunnel 4-30 pm, then down to Bonneval, after that its a steady run down to Portugal, havent any set routine other than a stop at Behobia to top up with cheap whisky
    Have to be back home for about the 10th December as our Grandaughter is making us great grandparents
    Give me a wave if you see me on the road or if we are stationary call for drink

    Send him back and keep the dog, you know it makes sense

    In my defence 9 times out of 10 it does look like I'm listening.

    Well. here I am in France then! It's been a bit of a rollercoaster. I've been very grateful for our fab POI map. The night before the tunnel was spent at Farthing Common, the first night in France I was at the one near Richebourg and the next night was Abbaye de Vauclair D886. The night after that was at a place we don't have on the map, but I think it could be added, we certainly didn't have any problems there: 48.6019374,4.7173393 - in the woods near a lake. Although it was a Monday night in October everywhere else round the lake was rammed with motorhomes!
    Thanks again for the POI efforts Chris.
    Now staying for a few days at a friend's place near Langres before heading further South. I hope everyone's journeys and plans are going well!

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll add it to the POIs.

    Glad you're having fun!

    I'm hoping to get away Mid December but the missus is talking about spending Xmas with the grand brats, if so, it will be early Jan.

    Late Jan & Feb can be crap weather in Spain, have to take a quick ferry trip over the straits to Maroc.
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.
