    We've decided to rough it and camp on the 2 nights. Found a place in Interlaken just by the lake for Friday and for Saturday we'll be staying in Santa Lucia which is about a mile and a half south of Bormio. Should be good! Got my MT800's coming in tomo so I'm good to roll! :)

    Nice one, you'll save a bit of wedge doing it that way. You never know, one of us posh gits might let you use a hotel shower!

    You booked the eurotunnel?

    Yup, shuttle is all booked up too. Just need to get a few things sorted like insurance and first aid but thats little details! Leaving on the same one as you and Mitch I think.

    Sorry folks it is a no-go for me this time.

    I will watch out for any further road trips and see if I can tag along in the future.

    I shall keep an eye out for the trip updates, any of these hotels have web access for updates on the fly ?

    Regards,

    Paul

    Its gonna bee too much for me otherwise. It would be better to be fresh on Firday morning, rather than fooked from a 4 hour drive...

    Suppose. I'm not that far away (J11 on M1) so it wont be too bad for me. I was just wondering if anyone was coming down on Friday. Thinking to meet up and go down together.

    So your expecting to sleep Thursday night then!? lol I'll be buzzing!

    wicked, glad you're all booked up leon! Manged to sort out a co-pilot?

    my living room floor is free for all audisportballers on the Thursday night if you need it. Can't remember who is crashing at mine but I think there are at least a couple of teams so far!

    It'll be a very early start on Friday though, so no heavy lashing the night before!.... Leon! ;-)

    Where abouts? I used to live and go to uni there. Speaking of which I have a house in Reading that might be inbetween tennants in august, might be a bit more comfortable than my living room floor! I'll find out if it's going to be empty...

    I'm driving down Friday morning at the moment, coming from West Mids though so M40 - M25 - M20 for me, not much scope to meet up except for on the M20, but then you might as well carry on to the Euro Tunnel.

    Might leave Thursday evening depends if I can get away from work at a sensible time.... :(

    Yea you'll be coming in the other way. It shouldn't take me more than 2 hours to get there. Pretty straight forward route too. M1-M25-M20. At half 5, 6 in the morning, should be there in no time!

    It was alright, the adrenaline kept me going! knackered when I got home though!

    If you can, bring a co-pilot though, it'll be better, although solo you'll get to drive on all the sweet roads, not just half!

    Yeah, its finding someone who has the time to spare. Its proving difficult. Its creeping up on us quickly now.. I dont think i'd be too bothered going it alone, its just a bit lonely on long journeys. Good to have a laugh on the way ....

    Yeah, maybe you should post a thread asking if anyone on here fancies going with you. Bit of a gamble though, you might end up with a chump!

    Shame, but if you manage to get the green light from the misses then I would have thought you would be alright booking quite late, there are loads of hotels in Interlaken and Bormio.
