    You lucky people I am sat here recovering from an operation, and looking over at my yard where the RV is sat waiting to go, except I can't drive for another month. So I just keep visiting the funsteers and do my travelling through you guys. Hope your trip goes well, and let us know how the journey went, and what your site is like.:thumb:

    Me too, off work for 6 weeks following an operation Christmas Eve so no driving! Still it gives me a lot of time to research places to visit when we do get away, although its a bit slow trying to type one handed :Rofl1:

    We're getting the tunnel on 2/1/14 but plan on gettin there possibly the day before,where's this sleepyspot that's closeby then? I normally sleep on the front down by the marina but it's a bit of a pain going down into dover then back to the tunnel 22miles round trip, waste of fuel,and they won't let you park up in the tunnel car park till nearer your crossing time for whatever reason I don't know.gwyntaxi.

    We will be crossing on the 2nd then heading down to Villasol. Got a fantastic rate from them and look forward to meeting other Funsters when we arrive on site.

    Arrived at Villasol this morning. Plenty of pitches down near the road but a bit thin higher up in the site.
    Good run down. 36 hours from Dover to Villasol.:thumb:
    Will now probably be led astray by the Funsters.
