But all being well I'll be on the 08:00 next Wednesday Morning with the massed syncro's.

Mark, I'm driving up to Dover stopover Tues (time not yet arranged as awaiting meet with my co-pilot), so we could convoy from Bristol. I'll call you Sat . evening when I have my Bristol departure time.

The second one has a large tent area which has electic, that might be the best bet.
Althought these are both just short of 4hrs from Dunkirk, and as Mammut Park is only 5hr45, we should perhaps be looking at an earlier stop.

What do those on the 8am ferry want to do? Do you want to keep going, stop at a proper campsite and pay around 20E or a cheaper service station style option on the road :?:

:( Nobody wants to talk to me. I've sent out a few emails now to different sites all around the Duisburg area and got sod all back. Could be something to do with sending english emails to sites with only german websites???

Not long till were off so i will have a campsite proposed by the weekend, we will definately be stopping, It will then be up to the masses to deside what they want to do.

Alastair I shouldn't think that any of these campsites will be full at this time of year and mid-week - you'd probably be fine just turning up on spec.

Just thought, not sure -

Reminder to the lpg running motors but think the lpg vehicles need to have a continental adaptor.

Hi Neil,
We were working on minimum 20mpg for 650 miles on the continent,we hope [we will get 27mpg most of the time but just in case]so 180-200 euros for fuel + any outings will be extra and for me Ihave to add lead foot to my fuel bill whilst off roading,thats probably 100 euros extra for me! :lol:
