    Just a thought Lou, I've done a journey plan from the Black Forest area, via my new place on towards Virey.

    It's a bloody long way so if you wanted to you could break your journey and stay the night with us. We'll have two guest bedrooms but we also have a field nearby (1km) so if you're camping we could all stay at the field and have a party ???

    PS I'll be getting a Triumph Tiger.

    Just remember one thing ... that there France is a BIG country, as SWMBO and I found out when trying to get to a gite near Pontarlier (Jura) from Dunkirk (nr Canterbury, not the one on the French coast) and leaving at around 09.30hrs and landing in Calais after 13.00hrs local time. OOPS!!:oops:
    Got there way after 7pm for a 4pm (ish) handover!:eek:
    Not made that mistake since, I'm pleased to say.:)

    Many thanks biglad, but we are already booked into hotels at St Dizier and Orleans for our trip from Seebach to Virey. It looks like the distance is probably to far on this occassion. Regards Lou
