    Well......IT'S STARTED:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    We have emptied the house...
    Tenants on their way in...
    RV filled, packed and started...
    ...and we're off :BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    Currently in Oswestry, treating the RV to some new tyres at Brian Evans tyre depot in the morning.

    Then 'darn sarf' to meet up with some friends who we are crossing with (so three RV's and a fiver in convoy!) from Portsmouth to Santander (so that'll be another 23 hours in the cabin for me :Rofl1::Rofl1:)

    Then down through Spain for the winter and we'll be back when the snow's gone and the sun has got it's UK visa back :Rofl1::Rofl1: :thumb::thumb:

    Will you miss us? :Wink:

    Safe travels, make sure our plot, 140 has concrete slabs on this year and we'll be down in December, away from the cold and snow :Rofl1::Rofl1::thumb:

    Safe travels all of you, we expect you to be fluent and able to give lessons in spanish on your return Bryan, so you better catch up with suzies language skills. Above all enjoy

    There I was waiting patiently at DOVER looking out for bryan and susies RV

    Ive practiced me running and the hiding under the rear wheels

    Just to find I should have been

    AT PORTSMOUTH


    So much for stowing away to have a mega funster holiday

    I will have to try harder next year - in the mean time I am hitchhiking back to london as I wont make it to portsmouth before they catch their ferry.

    :Sad: I wish we had a plot down there, that needed slabbing. :Wink:

    Have a great time Bryan & Suzy. Next spring, it'll be one down, with nine to go. :Wink:

    Have a safe trip.

    All the best,

    Jock & Rita.

    I intend to be with you for the month over Xmas & New year.

    Going to travel down slowly taking couple of weeks and same on return:Smile:

    Any sites open throughout the year on the way through France would be nice to know in December.

    Hi John,

    I think that perhaps ACSI Camping Card, may be your best bet if others can't recommend certain camping sites, and as it is out of season, you'll get the best deals.

    Good luck with the search.

    Cheers,

    Jock.
