    We are off to Spain on Thursday morning 6.00am thru Tunnel! We are hoping to get as far as Orleans on A71 on the first day, is that a realistic goal? and can anyone recommend any good sites in the area (or Aires, I have the book but you cant beat a recommendation)

    We stayed on La Grande Sologne site on the RD2020 just south of Orleans. ACSI site no. 1523 on page 198 of this years book. There is also an aire at the entrance to the site.
