    A whole week lost. That could be half a holiday.

    I know what I'd choose - wait a week or go through a near death experience !

    The way the weather is shaping up in the UK,, :Sad:

    Why not cancell that trip and get your money back, a leasurly drive up to Dover hop on a ferry and drive down.. :thumb:

    You could have one or two over nighters in an Aire and be here in this hot heat by Tuesday.. :thumb:

    This heat cannot last that much longer. :Wink:

    Will try and hang on to it for you, but cannot promise. :Cool:

    Thats a shame especially when you are geared up ready to go.
    We are on the train on the 1st prefer it with the dog.Only had one stop in France last time at St Maure De Touraine south of Tours then a night in Spain nr Miranda This time we may take longer as there are 3 of us going down..depends how cold it is no point hanging around in a freezing wet France.
    Hope you both get down the following Sunday. Might see you around ..

    often wondered why they never fitted water taps in the tunnel roof...:Wink:

    tunnel or bay of biscay......i know my choice.

    tunnel fires.

    only 3 fires since '96

    Large storms occur in the bay, especially during the winter months. Up until recent years it was a regular occurrence for merchant vessels to founder in Biscay storms,

    how many ships lost ?
