Tim

We know you are awaiting replies from campsites but are you getting any nearer to setting dates for this?

Been waiting for a callback from Eurocamp.

Phoned them and they in turn are waiting to hear back from 2 campsites. Apparently it's difficult to contact the French campsites at this time of year, they don't constantly have someone on reception like a hotel. Plus they are mega relaxed about responding to emails so the Eurocamp guys have been phoning. They are on it and promise they'll come back asap.

As soon as I hear anything I'll post it here.

Tim - are you any nearer to confirming actual dates for the trip next year? Given that I reckon your at least as anal as me on stuff like this, you'll understand why I'm asking!

The only way I cope after Xmas until the lighter nights arrive is by planning the summer trip. I like to book ferries, etc and put the date in the calendar so I don't clash with the management team in our office.

As you know we're planning on incorporating the Forum trip with another couple of weeks in France and Spain and I've started looking at villages to visit from here.

I get (almost) as much from planning our trips as I do from the trip itself! Sad, but true...

I can't wait for some more of this, particularly on a day as cold as today.

Boo! have you given Eurocamp any suggested dates, Tim?

Holiday memories: Here's a pic of A@C behind us in the ferry queue at Porstmouth in July this year.

I've told them we'd like to go sometime in the first 3 weeks of August. The crux is when the campsites they're asking can fit 12 Kombis in, pitched together. If I get more specific with the dates, that introduces a further difficulty into the equation.

I understand, particularly as it can get busy on some of the sites when the August French holidays start.

I'll just have to be patient, although that's not one of more core competences!

It's equally, if not more frustrating for me Abs as the bloke trying to pull this thing together.

Right .... I've just had a phone call. Eurocamp have 2 sites that think they can accommodate our group. They are just checking the specific dates but it will be one of the following 2 sites:

La Foret

or

Pong (interesting name!!)

Both in the Vendee, travelling out from Portsmouth to St. Malo and back from Caen to Portsmouth (so we can get an afternoon ferry back.)

Looks great Tim. I assume that those of us who want to travel independently can be accomodated.

I'll make sure that's an option, but if you don't come along for the convoy Abs, you won't be in the movie!!!!! ....... Wink
