Thats sounds right up my street Geoff. A demonstration would be nice though and when i get my confidence up would be happy to have a twosome.

Whatever you guys are talking about I have no clue but something tells me social distance is not a part of it.

Seriously I might be up for a little tour after the Megameet so we can talk about it here.

Sorry Uli, I think we got slightly off topic....
Following on from your suggestion (Harwich ferry), I looked at their timings and prices etc., and it looks like a very good way to get across the water, especially as Harwich is so close to where I live.
Could be the way to go.

Not really familiar with dykes ask the Dutch they are the experts on this. Besides also not really used to Queens apparently you British should know.

Uli don't enquire any further  :164: ... there is a reason Geoff wrote 'dike' and not dyke ... it wasn't a typo. :740:

Harwich / Hook Holland looks likely for me too.
Especially as Dennis mentioned he could be persuaded to cook up a route from Holland to towards Germany
its too far off to worry about prices for 2021

If I coudl find a B&B in say Belgium (or even worse France, France FFS) I might be persuaded to go via chunnel.

but its way too  far off for any serious 'planning'.
the only serious planning Ive done so far is book the hotel and block out big chunks of time either side of the event.

Although North Sea Ferries are only 50 miles of so away from Louthtiger and me, it's become silly expensive in recent years.  We are thinking chunnel or Dunkirk ferry and Premiere classe and then visit the new( ish) Waterloo visitor centre and a second night maybe Luxembourg way.   Back via black forest\ Mosel\ Vosges are ideas.
