And we're back from the Pyrenees!

Post by CDS » Mon May 19, 2014 11:14 am

I'm off with Amondeggs on Friday for a jaunt across the Spanish Pyrenees, traveling East to West from near Perpignan to Santander, eurotunnel and drive through France on the way out and then Santander to Portsmouth ferry home.

Here's the planned 'rough' route. We're not planning to stick religiously to it and are open to detours etc on our way :thumbright:

Will try and post up some pics along the way if anybody's interested :thumbright:

It's gonna take in about 120miles per day, we haven't booked any campsites other than one on the way down nr Paris, we are planning to stay at the one we used at the beginning of the 2012 club trip, but they won't take a booking for less than 3 nights as it's peak season. We have loads of sites plotted on CompeGPS, so we can just stop where we need to, also may wild camp a couple of nights so long as we are outside of the national park it should be fine :thumbright:

120 miles off road a day - that's a lot. Poor Steve in a 90! He'll need a back transplant by the end of the week!

Not all of it will be off road, and the plan is if we don't go the distance then we'll carry on where we left off another year or so down the line. The beauty of just 2 cars is we don't need to plan out the stops the same you if there is a large group
