    Was due to be in Dubai (working) from the New Year but has now been put on hold indefinitely due to economic conditions over there. Therefore I'll now hopefully be going over there again.

    Last year was a blast, apart from the rain on the Sunday morning!

    Also looking at what to take (car-wise)...

    Where are you camping ? When are you going down ?

    I haven't booked yet but thinking about it! I was also thinking of travelling down on the Thursday evening hoping it would be a bit less busy!

    I was thinking of booking it through these people http://www.speedchills.com/

    Anyone else thinking of going ?

    Just about to book my tickets. But have just found some availability at Garage Verte campsite, near Tetre Rouge corner? Anyone know it, know what it's like?

    We've booked the 5am ferry from Dover, so we should be on site by lunchtime on Thursday.

    PJMSPEEDY - if you get there on Thursday night you'll be left with absolutely shocking pitches, unless you've got a reserved/numbered site? Last year we got to Beausejour by about 2pm on the Thursday and it was chocka, with very little space left...

    Yep,

    Feel free to join us for a beer.

    Will take you up on that. We may beat you down there (earlier ferry), but you'll be travelling faster, so no doubt bump into in the queue getting in!
    Brilliant idea about the Knights - we were joking about going as Brian in loin clothes !!

    We'll have a dark grey Defender 110 County with big black wheels + a black saab 93 estate. May well rig up a flag on the Landy too
