you coming for 3 days then Mike,have you booked your train yet?
Not booked anything yet mate, only planning on 2 days but if it looks like it is going to be epic (which it inevitably will) then I will have to reconsider. Will need to get my copilot involved in paying for stuff I think.

Will be scheduling a skype call soon to finalise the route although this is pretty much decided upon, and providing a choice of hotels in each area to suit those who want a bed for the night or those who want something a little better :)

Having spoken to some of the people on the interest list it seems that the extra day may be putting some people off, either through cost or time off work issues. So, to get the maximum numbers we can for a great weekend we are thinking of running the trip as follows:

All set off together on the Saturday morning and stay together through the day, overnighting in the same place, then on Sunday morning splitting the group, with the extra dayers going on their way and the others heading back towards the tunnel.

To help this work, I've said I will do the two day (1 night) option so we will have leaders with both groups.

Can you let us know (on here) if the 2 day (1 night) option would suit people better? If it doesn't then I'll stick to the longer trip, but we want to accomodate as many people as possible.

Whether I bring one of my cars or co pilot I would prefer the 3 day option. If I co pilot and my driver only wants 2 days, then 2 days it is.

I have booked the train for the 3 day option but if there are only going to be a few of of us for the 3 day trip i would rather change it for the 2 days.
