Relieved we have a crossing confirmed - I was starting to worry we wouldn’t get across.

Now I am worried what you guys get up to that means hotels you stayed at before don’t want you back ......... :cool:
We raised the tone of the place, is all.

Important info to all.
Well in a break of not dealing with the yellow vests, Macron yesterday signed a decree that the British air in your UK cars tyres won’t conform in France after 29th March. So if driving over , the first thing you will have to do is stop and let the air out your tyres and fill them back up with EU air. Residents who bring their car over before 29/3 will be given 30 days to visit a garage and obtain an air exchange certificate.

We now have a space for one more due to a drop out, please PM me for details.

Ideally one person but if you want to bring a mate that can be accommodated.

When I drove through France in September I used Waze as Sat Nav and it marked all of the speed cameras with a policeman icon (in the UK it shows them as speed traps I guess it is against French legislation to do that)

TomTom calls them "safety zones". It's generally up to 1/4 mile early, but forewarened and all that!

Ah forgot about those Waze refers to them as an average speed check which is accurate... They do Mark those zones with signs as you enter them.

I was referring to those little boxes they put on the side of the road mostly on the secondary routes

In the 'bad old days' before UK joined the Common Market/1992 open borders (can't remember which, the gendarmes used to dip fuel tanks in lorries and charge the drivers for importing fuel...I kid you not.

Just heard on the news that some Brittany ferry passengers due to travel in May have had their bookings cancelled due to the government requisitioning the ferries to ship essential medicines etc, in case of shortages following a no-deal Brexit. Hope it doesn't affect you chaps.

And yet they are saying cross channel trade may be down as much as 87% after Brexit, someone is talking b0llocks. Project ‘Fear’ rearing it’s ugly head again?

Down by 87% because the stuff *can't* get through, I think was the point. Not because no one wanted to send it.....

It’s still all b0llocks. We used to have TIR which sealed the trucks and did away with border checks. It can be worked out but I suspect the EU would rather suffer a recession than give us a workable deal.

It’s all a conspiracy led by France to snarl up the ports, they’ve heard you lot are coming ;)
