    Very open ended from our position.. No decision made as yet but it is still only October and we always have Xmas at home and then ship out 1st week of January. Currently thinking that as my Insurance is due 12th January, will have a green card issued before we leave UK and then decide from there..
    There will no doubt be Funsters around, several have said they are going..

    Ebola and militant Islamists not that far away. I think Africa is out of bounds for me for the next few years at least. These things spread!!!

    As Dave said, the Ebola and militants have put paid to 2015. I think that this Ebola will appear in the UK and Spain this year :-(

    I actually think it will spread wider than that - but it won't be as widespread as in Africa - and I wouldn't put myself deliberately in harms way in a third world country where it is rife.
    Won't stop me heading to benidorm though!!!

    Well unless the powers that be tell us it's unwise, we're definitely going and we're prepared to accompany a SMALL group along the lines of 2014 i.e. meet up somewhere close to/at Algeciras and cross on the ferry together, get "acclimatised" then you do your own thing. Like Tonka, haven't decided on a date yet (got Xmas to sort first) but it's probably going to be mid-January. So if you're interested post on here and I'll start a list - but please note this is NOT a rally, I'm not going to be "the organiser" just do a bit of co-ordination. Would be helpful if the group contained a few who've done it before (Steve? Interested?)

    If you haven't done so make sure you read the Morocco 2014 thread to ensure you know what you need to sort out yourselves.

    I'm probably going to regret this.........

    Many thanks for the replies, much appreciated.

    Take care,
    Norman.

    Please add me to your list. Your proposal is exactly what we are looking for.

    Also, I note that the Morocco thread of 2014 was exceptionally long and I thought it would be helpful for members if the 2015 thread was split.
    i.e. Morocco 2015 Campsites and Ferry Information: Morocco 2015 General Information: Morocco 2015 Arrangements for travelling groups/parties etc.:
    Just a thought as it would direct interested members to the right group and cut down on the overall length of each thread. Would need Jim to set up I guess.

    Thanks for that gents, can I start my ball rolling, I have driven through France a number of times and I got as far as Gibraltar when my wife was alive but I have not traveled out of season before.
    Personally I would be happy to meet and travel in company from the UK, but that is just me, open to ideas though.

    Norman.

    We will be returning to Morocco in January unless Ebola or ISIL make it unsafe.
    Unable to commit to a specific date though as we are planning to take our time meandering down to Algeciras.
    We will be keeping in touch via this thread though and will help out with advice if we can.
    Re splitting thread, my advice would be to keep it all in one place. For those actually travelling in Morocco you know you only have one place to look to find out what's happening/get help/provide advice.
    It's only looking at it in hindsight that it appears daunting. I think It's worked the last two years, it ain't broke, so why fix it?

    Okay folks, I'll get the ball rolling. Fully agree with makems, keep it all in one place - when we get home (at Gravelines tonight on our way back from Germany) I'll have a look at the 2014 thread and identify the most relevant bits. So from now on we'll use this thread to communicate etc.

    As regards numbers, a group any bigger than 20 would be a bit much, particularly finding stopovers that can take that many all in one go, so for the moment that's the limit I'm working to. However if someone wants to go on a different date and is willing to co-ordinate I don't see any problem with a second or even a third group. I know that many people we've talked to about 2014 could be interested.

    TucanoTwo - thanks Norman will keep you in mind but I'm hoping that there won't be too much messing about although "on the day" it would be nice to have an extra pair of hands/feet.

    Terry

    We'll be around Algeciras early January and would like to visit Morocco for the first time, but, like many others we're waiting to see how things are over there, so it will likely be a last minute decision for us. (Had the jabs & bought the T shirt). Will also keep an eye on this thread. If a list gets started, please include us.
