Hi all well, Me & her to be obeyed went for our little bimble to France, my new GF had never been on a bike till she met me, & the furthest had been so far on the back of the was Eastbourne.
I suggested a few days in France camping, as that is all the buckshee time I had available, so we packed the panniers, took of the Top box & put my otleibe in it's place.
As we where only going for 4 days we didnt need much :whistle: Dave Lomax would of had a field day with us
As She had never been Camping either, lucky for me & still got quite a bit of 'ehem' older camping kit, that I have held on too as a 'never know might come in handy'.
besides the Tesco £20.00 3 man Tent (had it 3) years now, so got my ££ back on that one I think. We decided we would take my Coleman 442 multi fuel cooker + 1 pot & lid + 2 mugs + KFS so we could have a brew, buy bred cheese etc. & buy a eve meal if we felt like it.
we both took 1 change of clothing each except the socks & Undies, a few extra.
We opted for the Cordura gear other than the leathers, (not sure if a wise move?) as when sitting on ferry & got to camp site I was soaking wet! & yes I had my EDZ under gear on & no liner in the trousers.
I booked on line outward with P & O £13.00 Return £15.00
we arrived in plenty of time,
I had already asked on the Forum for camp sites in France, so I found I liked the sound of & where we wanted it to be I phoned in advance, they had spaces.
It cost 14.00 euros for the entire time, with or without elec. on the way there we went past the municipal camp site out of interest I asked how much 24.00 euro's per night so brucie bonus for us.
On arriving we found the camp site to be massive, with some perminate homes by the beach, others, the caravans & Tents in a another part, Showers cost 1 euro for 6 min, She did notice the loos had no seats in fact made without a place to put a seat on!! lots of things to do for all ages, night club, tennis boles volley ball etc.
the next day we decided we would go for a ride around visit a few places near by as we left the camp-site the Belgium border as 1000 yds away!!
we went for a little ride in to Belgium and back a scenic route then off to Dunkirk, I wanted to pay my respects to the fallen.
we then came back & had a spot of lunch in one of the 3 night clubs / pubs on the camp-site, the food was very reasonable & really good, & then we found out how the Camp site got it's name.
no idea the type of parrot but very friendly & they let them out
Unfortunately It rained all day the Thursday, but good job we had our Cordura gear as we decided just to relax & do bugger all go for walks etc.
We packed up the Tent Fri morning & headed off but took a photo of the space I had for my 3 man tent we could of got another 6, in there!! very easy
This Short trip, was really a taster for her to see if she would put up with it or no way, well she has decided she
1) Now wants to learn to ride (on the look out for a 125, don't want to do DAS) Edit Now has a Yam YR 125, still sorned but a start
2) Decided she now wants a exped down 7 matterss, (I used mine she had my old Tesco blow
up thing, £5.00 Edit we both now have a Exped 7 mattress
3) Wants sleeping bag's that can be zipped up togeather :whistle: (I used my new down bag
she had my old Army feather thing, (took up more space than my change of gear!! lol Edit now has a new Down bag
4) We need a better Tent This Tent fore what I payaed for has done very well now looking at Vango Omega, Bravo or Banshee all 350 (3 man Tent) Omega Edit now got Vango Omega 350
Either way we enjoyed our selves, I know it is not really adventure Riding, but it was an awfully big adventure for her
have now uploaded my first ever vid from you tube, I have called it Jeanette & the French Parrot Sketch
