    Not spread the news yet...

    But we always get on a ferry and scream on down to Spain or Portugal...

    Well this year,,,, around the beginning of September, we are driving up to Dover,,, hopping on a ferry and doing the real France for about a month while the weather is nice..

    Few "Aires"... a few Campsites... and seeing as much of the old France as we can... Few days here & A few days there...

    Spoken to a couple of Funsters and RVOC members who have said we may be up for that (For the same reasons as I first mentioned above)...

    Two of my proper campsites I would like to go to are "Parc Verger" to catch up with Bob & Di and "Twin Lakes" to see Garry and his family.. (Few years since we have been to either sites) and both lovely sites with welcoming Mine Hosts..

    That is the only planning we have done at the moment, and not going to do a lot till we set foot in France...

    Any body up for it... ?

    Suggest about 6 - 8 units to make it do-able, and so we can keep an eye on each other...

    Other than a Saturday Ferry and booking the two sites mentioned, it will be a lets go there for a couple of days.... "Any Where"... :thumb:

    This will be an only France or possibly Belgium trip, as we are both taking "Toads" on "A" frames...

    Well Mo, every day in every way we learn a little more, do we not?

    Seriously sounds like a great idea, but I can't be sure I'll be retired by then, I keep hanging on hoping the pension pot will be a little fatter.......

    .....I know what you're thinking, I'll be one of the wealthiest corpses in the graveyard.......:Rofl1:

    I think you'll find Mo is always cross when he's dressing but a fag and a coffee soon puts him right :BigGrin:

    Hello Popeye

    Got a good mate who's a cash multi millionaire. He's always worrying that he hasn't got enough money for his nearing old age...

    It's all relative don't you think?

    WE may see you Mo, as we are doing central France for a month starting 3 September, including Charente, Limousin, Auvergne and perhaps down as far as Cahors. We will be going to Parc Verger at some stage. Will let you know more when I have done our itinerary! We will be governed a bit by going to see friends - there are 4 lots who live in France. Sailing from Dover, coming back from le Havre. Got the passages for £120 which I thought was very good, but we are only small fry compared with you lot!

    We've been travelling all over France for the last three years in September. This year, we decided we should change our plans and spend May/June there, so have booked tunnel and everything :Doh:

    Ooh ! We too are leaving beginning of Sept for 3 weeks in France. Mainly Brittany and the Loire Valley, however, who knows where we'll end up. Getting a one way ticket as not sure where we'll end up to come home. It's our first time away over the water in what will be our newly finished campervan, therefore, we wldn't really join up to a large group as such, however, will defo keep an eye on where everyone is staying and hopefully bump into people for the odd night :Smile:

    You will be made most welcome, Mervyn.. :thumb:

    Few "Aires" few sites.... bit of doing the leisurely tourist thing... meal out may be... few get togethers over a drink.. :Wink::BigGrin:

    Posting each night where we will be and for approx. how long... then people can join and leave when ever they like...

    Would never be able to arrange some where to visit to suit ever body so come and go at will.. :thumb:
