    If we want to be on the same shuttle we well need a ticket with the same letter, which means meeting before we go through the main gates, at the service station i recon would be best like last time.

    Have a super time you guys. I'm sure you'll enjoy the driving.

    I'm off to Germany (mosel Valley) for a week and then on for a further week in Switzerland (near Davos) on the 14 June. It cannot come soon enough.

    With regard to the Vignette - it very easy to purchase one as you cross the border. When I cross on the A5 at Basel it only takes a couple of minutes and you don't even have to get out of the car!

    12:45h leave Calais to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc
    21:00h get to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc
    Hotels:
    Hotel Chris-tal http://www.expedia.co.uk/pub/agent.dll/qscr=dspv/nojs=1/htid=1116736
    Hotel Du Bois http://www.expedia.co.uk/pub/agent.dll/qscr=dspv/nojs=1/htid=889384
    Hôtel Les Campanules http://www.expedia.co.uk/pub/agent.dll/qscr=dspv/nojs=1/htid=1741350
    Hotel Beau Site http://www.expedia.co.uk/pub/agent.dll/qscr=dspv/nojs=1/htid=1783471
    Saturday
    09:00h leave Chamonix-Mont-Blanc for Davos (D1506, 9/E62, 19, 13/E43, 28)
    15:00h leave Davos to Stelvio (28 (via Fluelabach), 27, 28, SS41, SS38)
    17:30h leave Stelvio to Bormio (SS38)
    18:30h get to Bormio

    Hotel Baita dei Pini http://www.expedia.co.uk/pub/agent.dll/qscr=dspv/nojs=1/htid=1787491
    Sunday
    09:00h leave Bormio to Mesocco (tomtom it)
    12:00h leave Mesocco to Hinterrhein (13 (not 13/E43) - San Berardino pass)
    12:30h leave Hinterrhein to Calais
    22:00h leave Calais to Folkstone on eurotunnel
    22:45h drive home/get hotel/crash at mine...

    Monday
    09:00h Sleep!

    These are very approximate times, I'll work them out exactly if everone is happy with the above. Does anyone have a problem with us leaving on Friday morning? if so we can leave a day later (or Friday night maybe) but get back very late on the Monday.

    The hotels might be a bit of an issue, in that we might end up in 2 or 3 different hotels depending on availability, but they are all in the same areas.

    Does anyone have any comments/suggestions/questions?

    Mr Alex Green aka Maximillion Cooper... excellent once again for the organisation... sounds sweet and mouth watering just thinking about it.
    As for me not a defo yet still deciding... Got a mate who probs will come too with his RS4 if he can sort out his cover for work.

    Google maps/earth is good to check the route. Especially google earth, you can see the awesome mountains and roads in 3D!

    That is a good plan!!

    I will decide next week if I am up to.. I might prefer to be windsurfing in Portugal.

    If I decide to go I will join you only on the first two days, Sunday I take my route to monaco, Nice, Barcelona and then Porto as I am on holiday I might take the entire week driving about...

    But possibly I will be windsurfing instead... I have to make up my mind yet...

    ok so totalling my figures up for 2 people im estimating a sum of around £1200, is this fairly accurate? This is based on:

    1. £150 hotels
    2. £200 Eurotunnel
    3. £150 spending money
    4. £100 insurance (for my codriver) and european breakdown cover (£45)
    5. £20 vignette
    6. £600 petrol (im getting 35MPG at the moment so i may spend slightly less than the 8P's on fuel)

    It will be a lot less than that mate, I recon including everything < £900, my first trip to the verdon gorge was around 1900 miles and two nights in a hotel - worked out at about £350 per person (me and a co-driver) so around £700 total.

    I'll work it out later...

    The route above adds up to 1770 miles, so say 1800 at 24mpg = 75 Gallons = 340 litres = about £400.

    Great, £900 does sound more reasonable! Im really looking forward to this now, the only thing holding me back is my codriver, but if he backs out im sure there's others who'd love to come

    I've just sent a mail to everyone on the list asking whether they can confirm if they can come or not.

    We have plently of time, but it would be good to finialise the plan as soon as possible making sure everyone is happy with it.
