    Those French storms are something else aren't they?

    A few years back we stopped at a site near Le Mans. We were woken at about 3.30 am by the mother of all storms with lightening and thunder shaking the van.

    Being an idiot I had parked us under a big tree. I had to get out to unhook and then move the van out into the open. Soaked:Doh:

    We lost our awning in a storm at Carcassonne about a week ago. I'm afraid ours is a total write-off.
    We are at Camping Aquarius at San Pere Piscatore, we will have stayed here for 10 days when we leave on Thursday, saving €42 a night on the ACSI rate. I think ACSI was about €13 this year so saved €407 on this site alone. 3 nights at Carcassone saved another €30. Otherwise we have been on Aires. We also expect to save staying at Bourg st Andeol as their ACSI cheap rate runs up to the end of the month.
    Moral is don't leave home without ACSI.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    i stopped at that site but they tried to charge me 35euro said they only give a 10% to acsi so i didnt bother and will report it to acsi i went to riu instead nice place for a stop over and very friendly now im in park playa de bara stayed here last year and a great site but can be expensive although the bar prices and cheap so loose on the swings and gain on the roundabout lol
    what date is thursday i think thats when i leave here as well then will travel back to maybe orcet i have to see that place again will maybe travel longer so i can stay there longer going to do a night journey leave here around 6pm also want to go via Fontainebleau went there a few years back want to see it again maybe

    that seems like bumping the price up just to show a discount, who would actually pay over 42€ a night for a site. sorry to hear about the awning I hope you managed to make the van watertight.
