    hi there

    A very big hi. fun is about to start, France ? just an idea for first time, turn right along coast, St Valery sur Somme, about 85 miles, great aires both there and on way, campsites as well if you prefer, choice of coast road,and little towns, main road or motorway,, a great area to cut your teeth on,, lots of bakeries and cake shops, worth a look on map, take care, drive safe and let us all know how you got on, cheers.

    Hi Mike,
    How did the fridge job go?
    When you're down Toulouse way is it your intention to visit Frankie? I only ask because Wildman asked me the same question. I thought it might be a nice idea.
