Just tacking this to the end of Bungles thread...

One of the guys has had to drop out for this year and there is currently a room available at our hotel in Germany.

and, as if by magic. The room is filled and this post has been edited within a whisker of its pretend life.

That looks a bargain to me :thumb:, I am sure you will have no trouble finding a taker. Just a shame If it overlaps with a week in Brittany I have booked :crybaby: - maybe next time if you have space

He's a local from Nottingham and will be coming on his VFR I think. This isnt his first trip abroad or through the tunnel, so Ive nothing to worry about on that score. very keen, Told him the room at the schloss was his the moment he booked either his overnighter at Eureka or the Tunnel. he booked into the premier inn on the spot. Hes not a member of this forum. So, thats it.. we're back to a nice round number of 8. and in the nick of time too. 10 weeks today.

Wont be doing this next year. what we have always done is, because the Eifel is a huge favourite, we go there 2 years in a row and then the 3rd year we go somewhere else. mainly so we don't get bored with the Eifel. a change of place.. something entirely different.

Next year my plan is https://tinyurl.com/y636txa3

We will be back in the Eifel in 2021 all being well.
