Re: 2018 road trip to the Casa. More ideas like last year please.

Many thanks for the further replies guys appreciated. We are now on the journey. We stayed in Saint Jean D'Angeley near La Rochelle after driving fron St Malo on Tuesday. Nice central hotel with a good French restaurant which we used. As per usual France closed at 8.30pm so it was a good job the hot...

That does look an interesting route and certainly one to try in the future. Many thanks.

Re: 2018 road trip to the Casa. More ideas like last year please.

Thanks for this. Yes you are correct there, it seems you need to stay near the coast to make the easier crossing across the mountains. I'm not set on having to go to Burgos and would love to do the Pamplona route, rejoining the main E5 north of Madrid if poss, I just can't get a feel of what those r...

Would ideall...

Re: Fuel prices

I kid you not Peter, I'm the chap when on holiday the locals come to when their car does not run, my mistake for doing a repair for someone ages ago. A bag of Avocados is the reward usually. Last year it was an ancient Vitara that was playing up, obviously hadn't seen the inside of an ITV station fo...

Re: Fuel prices

A good tank full of Vpower Gerry and I can almost guarantee you'd tell a difference in performance when it's got around the fuel system. We use only VPower on all our cars, whether it is diesel or petrol. As Chris says this fuel does burn leaner and cleaner, just the oil changes tend to support this...

Re: car transport

Thanks Olive, I see you know the benefits this can bring. Yes the new bushes are a must I now realise on an older car like this, especially with beefed up performance. So tight and precise the car belies its years and is just so poised compared to how I remember these cars handling when I last drove...

Re: car transport

Thanks Al and I think you are bang on with all you say, although I'd thought the car new in 1988 may have been cheaper than 11k, I'll have to check on that. 9.5K rings a bell. Yep, your therapy comment is also true albeit tongue in cheek, the money I've seen thrown at classics (as I'm sure you have)...

Re: Premiership on the radio

Sometimes a radio commentary can add more to the excitement than actually watching it live in vision. Nowt matches the 1pm Monday afternoon 3rd round FA Cup draw though. Best radio programme ever :mrgreen:

Re: car transport

Hope it turns out to be a good buy whatever it is, I've just done similar. Great finding a forgotton gem. As some here will know I've always got a couple of classic/sports in the garage and a few weeks ago I was tipped off about a car that had languished unfinished for 6 years after a ground up rebu...

Re: 2018 road trip to the Casa. More ideas like last year please.

Thanks guys, yes Segovia and Toledo were mentioned last time but we just went direct from Burgos to the Med in the end, maybe that should be an option this time. Shame about that Beachy but thanks for the info. Although it's only a stop over it's nice to not have to rely on staying in the hotel, it ...

Re: 2018 road trip to the Casa. More ideas like last year please.

Thanks Beachy. We've decided we will 100% stay here now guys. Is it a town centre position, easy to find etc. Are there restaurants within walking distance or do you dine there if not wanting to use the car?

Many thanks

Enrique, many thanks mate and long time no speak, hope all's well with you and the family. Really appreciate that tip on Lerma, it sounds great and well good enough for me the way you describe it, I think we will give this a go now without doubt. Also your advice on the M50 and toll road last year w...

2018 road trip to the Casa. More ideas like last year please.

After last years brilliant drive to our place in Andalucia we are doing the same again shortly, just so much more relaxing than the grief of airports and as I was told a great way to get there and an experience. We will be using the same crossings again, ie arriving at St Malo and departing via Caen...
