I did ask someone last night but apparently at this late stage the cost of a divorce made the trip too expensive.

Seeing as this topic is now on page 30, contains 591 replies and has had 27914 views... and with the overall total for Dinslaken topics being 69 pages, 1126 replies and 43268 views... before we've even left home... I'd say...

Did you get my PM?
Now that I have realised how close the hotel is to the Tunnel exit and how long it will take me to get to Folkestone, I am getting a later train, so I can feed the donkeys and have breakfast t home.

See you all at the hotel ...
