    Ferry Update - Important!!!!

    Gents, we have had a change to our scheduling.

    our outbound ferry departure time has changed to 08.25am

    The ferry terminal address is

    Travel Centre
    Eastern Docks
    Dover
    Kent
    CT16 1JA


    Our return sailing is 18.25pm

    This means, that with increased security, you need to be at the meeting point (see other post) for 7.15am

    If you have any problems on the journey to the ferry, phone me asap

    See you all on Friday night for a pint or Saturday for the boat

    Cheers

    Paul

    I have spent today getting all the final costing together, and will also be the end of this week post a new set of GPS routing.

    The difference between what you have now and what you will get is:

    1. The map set is corrected regarding seasonal avoidance

    2. The daily routes will now show central lunch meeting points

    3. A waypoint is added for meeting Flash & Trassa

    4. A waypoint is added for meeting Stolzy

    I have also sent you today a spreadsheet that details all the accommodation costing for the upcoming tour.

    As well as some info on outstanding costs - please come back to me on that one.
    hi paul, you have not e mailed me the files and dont laugh but whats a v 5 document

    Carrots charger and myself are leaving Thatcham, near the M4, about 3.30pm if anybody wants to come meet up with us and travel down.
    Regarding meeting in Dover I would expect to be safely ensconsed by 6.30 pm in Dover. We will wander off to find a meal and a quiet ish pub maybe. Pablo has my number and as his bluetooth connection is crap I suggest he call me when he gets down. Anybody else who is coming down and wants to meet up can PM me their phone number and we will sort something out on Friday.

    Departure Time

    Well it's finally here!

    my bike is fully loaded and sitting in the garage waiting to go.

    After all the planning and challenges - tomorrow we roll!

    Thanks to everyone for the help, support and advice and also all the people who even though not going, have followed the progress of this trip and wished us all well.

    There will be a write up thread in this section for a while, before everything gets moved to the report main section.

    I am sure that there will be plenty of pics and stories posted, and I will do a full write up at some point in the near future.

    To everyone thats going on the trip, thank you for wanting to take part, and especially to Baron - minister of transport for the assistance in making it happen.

    See you when we get back

    Cheers

    PaulBDE

    Well done lads, the preparation & build-up has been very professional.

    Here's to a great few days away!

    Just got to secure the luggage, adjust tyre pressures & wind the preload up a bit.

    Is that all your taking? I have got the Famsa bags with the side bits so I can take more crap. But I am still going to forget something really important.
