    shortly after the 19th aug myself and one other female are planning a short trip to france for a few days. We will be crossing over from dover. Don't know how many days we will be gone, or where we crossing back from, or what time we leaving. Its a fact finding mission. Ie are we able to put air in the tires. (never sussed it out in Portugal), where is the Laundromats, shops etc, practice driving in towns etc. We will be visiting beaches, and trying the food out. We only plan at this stage to hug the coast, and hop back onto a ferry further down the coast. You are welcome to join us. You are particularly welcome if you are an experienced driver, as at the moment im the lead driver.

    Later in sept we plan to try and get to twin lakes meet up.
    The idea is practice, practice and practice. Hopefully I wont be crossing the same bridge 7 times following the sat nav, or get lost on the Motorway for 5 days again, or get stuck on a horse path.

    cheeky. I didn't run out of fuel. I was on reserve when the fuel strike hit. My fuel went down after I crossed that bridge 7 or so times when the strike started and exit 5 porta 400/600 was blocked off with tires on fire.

    I was just about to tell you that... (the last year bit, no the eejit bit)
    Maybe try starting another trip going, you seem to have done incredibly well this year with meeting up with other Funsters (y)

    Are you going to Pembrey Pip? Many female solos are going I think.

    I might be up for joining up with you and any other funsters you collect, depending where I am at that time. I will probably already be on the continent - currently soloing in France, with a plan to head for Spain sooner or later.
