    All the "get ready" stuff will be done by tomorrow so we kick off on Friday morning to spend Christmas/New Year at Camping Calpemar but have decided to check out Camping Marjal at Crevillent, for a few days, on the way. Will be on the lookout for any "Funsters" at both locations... if you spot us, (see avatar) then come say "Hello" and have a mince pie !
    Don't quite know what wi-fi connections will be like so will say it now..... Merry Funster Christmas to you all:BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:


    Regards, Bryan

    I cant help but be a little bit green with envy:Wink: Have a lovely time , and remember us all freezing and working away back here. Have a lovely Christmas too.

    Climb? There was a day, but nowadays a gentle stroll is about the limit, but for sure we will give it a go.:Smile:

    DEFINATELY! :BigGrin: A magical place and done it many times on our "flying visit" holidays to my folks. This will be the first time in Calpe...........well, in Spain at all ! with our rig so its going to be fantastic going up there and knowing I'm not flying home in the morning:BigGrin:
    I have this crazy idea to be up there, either when the sun rises or falls but that obviously leaves the dangerous bit about walking when its dark and I know that people have been "helicoptered" off there! S8d that! I couldn't bare the shame. So a few more reccie missions called for. The thought of spending the night up there in a bivvie bag is awesome but it depends on the weather.:Rofl1:

    Have a wonderfull Christmas pips and I hope the big guys brings all the presents you hope for.
    My biggest present will be the first Chrimbo with Mum & Dad in 6 years since they moved down there. Cant wait.:BigGrin:

    Ps for Bryan.
    Dont knoiw if you've been up there before, but you dont have to go all the way to the top for a wonderfull view of Calpe.
    Walk up to the tunnel through the rock (about halfway up) on a good, safe, reasonably easy path for good views. Care needed through the tunnel cos the rocks are VERY slippy, even when dry, cos of the wear of so many boots.
