Sounds good Roger, we are sailing to Bilbao this Wednesday, hopefully the storms will have passed by then, going to head down southern Spain and then track up the east coast of Spain until April, then return possibly by Switzerland, and then into Germany. We need to be back for mid May as Elaine his having one her hips replaced in May, so we thought we would escape while we have chance. Are you driving down through France, or getting the ferry to Spain.
Driving from Calais. We have a couple of calls to make on the way down. Can’t wait!

As you all know, I'm one of the younger members on the forums. That being the case, I'd appreciate some advice on travel insurance.
Last year, I paid about £240 for multi trips, Europe, up to 90 days.
This year, unless I wanted to pay over £850,* I've been restricted to 35 days, multi trip.This is with Staysure, with several medical issues.
* I hit the over 71 alarm.

Try Allclear they specialise in insurance for those with medical conditions.

I've got that pleasure to come, a problem for next year.
Hopefully we'll get over the channel before the storm.
I saw you are in convoy, who's with you?
We are meeting up with Joy in France and the heading south.
May be we'll catch up with you in Portugal.
Have a safe trip.

Going with Val and Reg, Bigredf, don't think you've met them yet. They're going with me, because I'm an experienced continental traveller. :rolleyes: God help 'em.
The slow meander through France and Eastern Spain, will now be a mad dash south. So even with you going a week before us, there's every chance we'll overtake you.

We are on the Portsmouth to Bilbao ferry on Wednesday, think the bay of Biscay will be pretty stirred up, with the tail end of this storm, me and the Mrs have good sea legs, so not worried to much about us. but my question is, the trucks last time I did this crossing were chained down and it was a smooth crossing, but do they secure the motorhomes as well if it is going to be rough crossings.

If you carry on posting while travelling, that would give us an idea where you are. And then avoid 😘
