    It doesn't have all the background info but we all know the info so it's alright.
    Yep, that works

    Bloody hell Sid, you have gone a long way around, what made you do it that way rather than getting a ferry over?

    Safe journey, enjoy Spain, hopefully you'll be riding into some better weather from that point.

    fyi your site isnt reporting speed any more, not that its important

    probably best if it doesn't last thing you need is a gadget that's going to call you a liar while your explaining to the polis how you've been a good boy and not broken the speed limit

    Reporting in from Ibis Zaragoza Central.

    Decent internet access with proper qwerty keyboeard not like those crap French ones.

    Just got back in from trip around town checking out the Tapas bars. At last the red wine is at the correct temperature, it was served chilled in France.

    As I'm typing this so Paintman is pouring me a glass of Rioja. [can't find the red wine smiley]. Glen is chatting up the Spanish receptionist.

    We've finally got the worst of the weather behind us we think. Managed to switch off the heated clothing this afternoon.

    Hopefully, we will just cruise down to Valencia tomorrow, Tuesday.

    I'll try to do a full report on my blog site before I drink too much red wine.

    The last thing you want is an infected wound in Africa

    Ask the hospital for a tube of Polysporin or from the chemist a product known as Second Skin (tm). Ideal for your injury... says the plastic surgeon burn specialist

    I think Sid has too, His map is stuck in Bordeaux

    Unless His tracker rests in a bottle of plonk or a flowerpot back where they stopped
    Oh Great and Wise Deity, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    Courage to change the things I can! And the wisdom to know the difference!

    I think Oony is going to update with 24 hours time delay, to ally any fears some of the party have.
    With Sids groups permission I'll update as and when Sid ok's it, usually at the end of the day...
    When they cross onto the African continent, I too will be 24 hours behind as per instructions

    Nothing to do with me, Sid's updating his own map I've no contact with him.

    I was asked to keep folks updated and post pics etc. I found out that, that is not the case by reading Rob Farmers post. They have asked for a news blanket of there movements for security reasons so I have to respect thier wish's

    No doubt they will be along at some point and post a report, till then Sid's map and blogs is all we have

    Just done daily update on my blog for day 6 Zaragoza to Benidorm.

    Another long day of 321 miles but they feel like twice that in these conditions With my infected knee my new name is "Infecktado".

    John "Paintman" will henceforth be known as "TwatNavMan".

    Decent internet access in this lovely top quality 4* hotel. Beers reasonable price but I´m not supposed to be drinking due to the antibiotics. Bollocks to that. Glen has just topped me up to save me loosing my place at teh PC. This is mine all night now.

    Not sure why my Spot thing has not updated. I´ve had it switched on in my pocket and it says it is sending a signal. I´ll try to check with my IT geek son. He may have set it to not be public anymore.

    I don´t care who sees it when I´m still in Europe but I obviously don´t want it giving real time location when I´m in Mauri.

    I was going to ask a MOD to remove the link in the first post of this thread as I think that was done by my son (on my wife´s login). I´ll get my Spot tracker set up properly and if anyone wants to follow me then they can PM Proff for the link. Anyone who has sponsored me at least 5 pounds can be given the real time Spot tracking link, fair enough?

    Knee getting better today but still funny colour. I thought this trip needed a bit more risk. Snow, ice and terrorism wasn´t enough for me so I had to add an infected knee just to keep the interest levels up.

    Thanks for the positive comments about the blog.

    As Sid has just stated, anyone who has sponsored [at least a Fiver] him can get the real time link from me [inc password ]

    Theres nothing wrong with the tracker Sid, it's showing where you are

    The link in the first post has NOT been updated since Bordeaux so don't bother deleting it...
