  1. Lucky for me i won't be doing it in a landing craft towards a load of angry Box Heads.

    Off to France this weekend via car. Objective see The Millau bridge. You know tallest Bridge in the world. Top Gear fans may know what i'm on about.

    Just trying to search for the best Ferry deal on the internet. Have to go via the south due to picking up a mucca in Aldershot.

    Any help appreciated!

  3. Check the forces discount book the ferries offer MoD discount

    Sod bouncing about on the bounding maine for a couple of hours.

    Drive on. Sit in car. Pop up in French France half an hour later.
     
  6. Sea France usually have good offers and as they're usually crewed by the dregs of French society (no not politicians) there's the added bonus of an argument or two.
     
  7. Bump

    We'll be using squaddy friendly accomodation so no need to worry there. Side of the road, put seats back and snooze!!!

    Anymore ideas before i make a booking!!!
     
  8. Normally with a lot of shrugging too.
     
  9. It must be about 1200 miles from the French Channel ports to Millau and back!!
     
  10. An educated guess? According to Autocraproute it's 578 miles from Calais to the town of Millau.
