    ...then raced through the land of the Bearded, Lisping Bull Baiters and arrived at the best (private) off-site park up in the South of France.

    A brilliant "Warden" who started some washing for me, made a coffee, provided some electricity and then took me out to dinner.

    Having just watched the weather forecast you have moved from a wet place, through a dry place to another wet place!

    It was warm/hot and sunny as I drove to the Portuguese/Spanish border and stopped overnight near Vila Formoso.

    It was warm and sunny with a helpful tail wind (queue smutty jokes) and only a few minutes of rain as I drove the Salamanca, Valladolid and Burgos route to Miranda de Ebro for the second night.

    A terrific, warm and mostly sunny trip from Miranda over the border, through the traffic jam of Biarritz, to within 200 kms of Toulouse.

    A superb drive today in wall to wall sunshine, Mont Marsan to Balma.

    But if the weather forcasts report differently, so be it!
