    Carrots Charger and myself have booked accommodation in Dover on the Friday so if anybody fancies meeting up for a beer/dinner I am sure we can sort something.

    synchronized watches...

    Bloody hell talk about organized! It sound like a crack commando raid on Italy! I'm guessing Paul you're not big on the flip-a-coin-at-the-intersection-left-or-right style touring???

    (secretly I'm very jealous )

    Not sure it would work too well with a group this size.
    Reminds me of a (possibly apocryphal, but nevertheless funny) story about an italian army convoy in Somalia. Nighttime convoy crossing the desert, second vehicle loses sight of the tail-lights of the lead vehicle, but resights it sometime later and resumes following. Only problem was that its wasn't the tail-lights of the lead vehicle, but the tail lights of the last vehicle in the convoy. Apparently the convoy kept circling in the desert until they ran out of fuel.

    I'm sure we won't be having any of that on this trip

    I think that we are meeting at 7am just through the customs/passport control before you get to the ferry kiosk.

    Can someone confirm the above please?

    I asked Baron a few weeks ago & he told me our outward ferry is 07:55 & our return is 18:20. (local times)


    Just read this on the P&O site..

    Dover-Calais

    This is the update for 14h00 on Friday 6th June 2008.

    Customers will notice a heightened police presence at ports and are advised to check-in promptly or a little early to accommodate increased security checks.

    Im also booked into the Longfield.

    It is my intention to push off from Northampton around 6.30pm, so if anyone wants to meet up and travel down with me, I will appreciate your company.

    Cheers

    Paul

    We are to meet at the ferry terminal. Once you go through the first ID check, you follow the road round to the right and there is a parking area before you go into the main passport control.

    We need to meet at 7am.

    I have just got back from Poland, and have experianced the new security measures, which involve a passport double check/swipe thing, and it really takes a while.

    Officially, we have to be there 45 mins before sailing, so I would say, get to the terminal for 6.45am to be on the safe side.

    Cheers

    Paul

    To all collecting at Dover on the Friday Night if Paul hasn't already got it organised, let me have mobile numbers and we can call to arrange point of meeting.
    Navigators booked the room but not exactly sure of accomodations location.
