Oh dear, that suddenly adds a whole new dimension . Would 10 days be long enough if we factor in hangover recovery time as well?

Anyway, how's the head after last nights homebrew session? I've still got that 'cloying' taste from the takeaway, and apparently I'm exuding enough aroma to keep the devil away for at least a month

The head is crystal clear!

Thanks for a superb evening, the best time I have had this year.

Just for interest, these are the average fuel prices for Le Havre fuel prices. Obviously it is roadside costs, but at least we've got an idea if we have to carry it from petrol stations further down the trip.

I've been trying to work out how much this journey will cost me. Assuming a 750 nm round trip, about 10 containers of HD100, 500 flash money and the possibility of several nights' hotel accomodation, then the bill won't be far off 3,000. There's no way Little One is going to agree to that. I'll work on her, but I may have to pull out.

I'm trying not to. I'd like to think it's not going to cost 3k but if it's too much don't pull out, jump on mine instead. It'd just be nice to get as many ribs going as possible.
