Are there any more people interested in this trip, but holding out until nearer the cut off point to confirm with deposits...???

Just so there is an indication of whether the trip will go ahead or not, otherwise I guess I'll need to start making arrangements to take the Jeep across Corsica or the Pyrenees for a couple of weeks later in the year.

Cheers
That sounds good - perhaps you could do with a co-driver/bag-carrier/someone to help pay the diesel bills?

@hertsboy

Diesel is for whimps (and Land Rovers..........:p)

I only drive a HIGH OCTANE YANKEE GAS GUZZLING BEAST...!!! (surprised it even accepts Unleaded)

So yes, fuel contributors may be an essential requisite.......lol

....... maybe something to discuss after the 15th.

Looks like this may not be happening as we have a week & a half to get 5 more people to commit to this, which is a real shame as I had high hopes for this one.

Aye, you and me both Neumo, but sadly it's looking bleak as there isn't much chatter beyond those of us who have signed up already.

It will be a real shame if it's cancelled, as I was really looking forward to it (sounded like a terrific opportunity).

Aye, real shame if it doesn't take place. Chance in a lifetime trip if you ask me.

Mind you, I can understand people thinking twice about sigining up as, taking the flights into account, it's a good £1,500 that has to be found.

Not all of us are fortunate enought to have that kind of money to spare.

We will have to see, as we may get a rush of takers at the end but probably not. Shame as I was really looking forward to this one.

Your sentiment is very true hertsboy, as I asked a couple of people I know in my village (knowing it was right up their street - or should that be river.....lol) and they just couldn't justify the money at the moment.

Not that I believe it to be an expensive trip for what it is but trip + flights + additional gear + possibly staying additional nights if flights don't tally, soon adds up and sadly these are mediocre times financially for many.

Yes, same here. Times is tough, so many can't afford this. Thanks for letting us know & will hope there is another one at some time in the future.
