Would appreciate any useful info particularly web sites that could be
useful in booking sites/planning an itinarary etc for winter motorhoming in
Europe especially France Spain & Portugal.
--------------------------------
Try www.francecamping.com

In the search box insert 'permanent' and this should bring up continental
sites open all year.

If you insert 'caravaneige' it will give you sites available near to winter
sports.

We reckon the paper copy Guide Bel-Air is the best campsite guide. The
France departmental maps are superb for finding sites

Happy New Year everybody!

i hope to drive down through France where I stay at France Passion Sites -
very quiet with few if any services and then into Spain where I have never
been.

Can anyone advise me if there is anything similar to France Passion here
or where I could find a list of quiet (wild) camping sites please.

Help would be appreciated

Nick

Not allowed! Surface water drains are for surface water only. They
usually drain directly into watercourses and the local water
authority
may prosecute anyone found discharging anything else.

We still use them on the odd occasion however. After all,
thousands of
boats on rivers and canals drain their sinks and showers straight
into
the water....

Mmm I am told the early booking price for the channel Tunnel goes up
on the 8th of Jan and we cant comit yet as we do NOT know the
confirmed date we need to be there.

How do these prices compare with the tunnel.

I dont use ferries as I suffer badly with sea sickness but the last 4
trips in seacat have been fine however we did wish to try the tunnel
but, Unless I can provisionaly book at that price I am stumped! any
advice appreciated!
i last looked at taking hte van on the euro drain about 3 years ago, got a
quote of around 500 quid, to go for 8 days, going out as early in the
morning on the 11th of september (i know how to pick my travel dates dont i)

i wanted early morning travel to keep out of the peak times, but it didnt
make much differance,

i went by p&o's dover to zeebrugge route (now closed) for 180, so never
bothered even looking at taking the van on the euro drain again, especialy
now i can take the new van (if i ever get it back) abroad for upto 3 months,
for around 145, (new van is 1 meter longer than the last one)
i prefer going out at the so called unsociable hours, (04:30) but prefered
more it on the dover to zeebrugge route as it took 4 hours, enough time for
some more sleep before ariving in europe at around half 9 local time, just
right for the first day's traveling.

Travel back on that route wasnt governed by times, so i came back at 11:30
in the morning each time, but avoiding a weekend sailing saved an extra
tenner.

Seasickness has never affected me, but it does the rest of my family, they
all use those bands you wear on your wrists that presses on the carperal
tunnel area, they work for them, but i understand they dont work for
everyone,

the chunnel is a bit boring, nowt to look at out the window :)
been on it on the passenger train to paris, but prefer to fly, a lot faster,
and easier it seemed.

Yes, Hymer seem to have: they tend not to fit a rear window. I can't
say that I like that idea, though.

In my days as a coach driver, we had a few identical coaches in our
small fleet, some of which had a rear "mudflap" right across the
back. That was supposed to keep the rear window clean, but I don't
reckon it made any real difference. The back mucked up as quick as
on the ones without.

Gunge!

dave harrison <chippard@...>
 

Hi All,
Due to the semi-vacuum created when driving, the rear window and
back it gets covered with 'gunge'. Has anyone overcome this problem? I had a
thought that a spoiler, the type that Yanks fit to Station wagons might
deflect enough air downward to alleviate the problem!
Can anyone think of an alternative for keeping it clear? screen
washers would not work.
Regards,
Dave C.

I looked a tunnel prices a few days ago and I think you had to pay in full
for the ticket which was not refundable but you could change the day you
travelled? Hope I have not got mixed up with something else? Did you check
the terms and conditions?

Eurotunnel charge 40 to change your booking.
Try SeaFrance. If you book before 14th you get a good price (I found 118
for my van) and they allow you to change the date with no extra cost as long
as you stay in the same price band.

Truma heater use tip

Tom Pen <tom@...>
 

My Truma heater has about nine horizontal vanes for the air to exit.
I have found that I can slide pyrex plates into the middle slots and use it
to heat the plates.
After about four mins the plates are hot enough to to almost fry bacon - so
beware when U remove them as food realy sizzles when placed on them.
