Is there any way that a list of definates and maybes can be attached to this? Ive no idea if it can or cant, but perhaps an admin could do it. It would be handy so we can all see who is going.

Thats fair enough, im sure if we all agree on the overnight stops there will be bed and breakfasts available at them. And as its after the school holidays are ovrr i would think they wouldnt be too busy. If there was a few going bnb then we could make sure we are all in the same establishment.

I'll come along! I'll bring my Berlingo and a tow-rope for towing all your broken down Activae.

I'll be staying in a hotel too! Camping? Ha. Not a chance. I'd rather sleep in the driver's seat of the Berlingo :O

Soap and a river will do for me, I used to do a lot of bicycle touring.
I've got loads of 12v pumps too so if the cars by a river all I need is a shower head.
I guess you could say I have no shame.

I've added a poll.
We won't be able to see who ticked which box but it will help keep track of numbers.
It is set up so you only get one vote but you can change your vote at any time.
I'll add a no option actually so maybes can swap to no as I don't think votes can be withdrawn.

I'm definitely in. (I'll compose my letter of apology to Friends of the Earth later...)
B&B/affordable hotels for me too. As you say, shouldn't be too difficult that time of year.
Really looking forward to this! \:D/

Ditto.. I've slept in an Activa before now - badly - but still better than in a tent..

I don't sleep much but for the short while of a night that I do it has got to be in quality bedding. I also need to properly wash (shower) and clean my teeth before I start the day... I also need to run and swim too..

If I can B and B next to a swimming pool I'll be very happy :)

Or a nice clean lake, I'll swim in that as well. Not really into pools, they make inside my head feel weird.

They just make me feel good... Like the 10K run I've just returned from ;)

It's the endorphins...

It's the chemicals, I just don't get along with them. I've been in a salted pool somewhere and that was brilliant. I guess I'm a bit intolerant of chlorine. I love a good swim though, in Wales I used to just jump into the lakes in Summer. Paradise really.

Better remember shark repellant, I'll feel safe if Jim goes in. He can probably incapacitate a shark with a stern look now he's on the big belts.
