Hi All challengers
I am still here although I nearly wasn't.(long story but OK now!) :)
Sorry for not being on here for some time.
I am also looking forward to taking part with Phil C.
It will be good to meet up with some of the old BXAGONEER'S.
And some new faces and Cars.
I think this wil be a very good time for all concerned.
One warning Don't buy Drinking Yoghurt in a low altutude shop and try to open it at the top of a mountain. :roll:
Trust me been there and it is not a good outcome.

Looking forward to the adventure.

Regards Kermit.

Hi Kermit,

Good to hear from you and it'll great to have you along again.

My BX passed its MOT today, at no expense save the test fee. :D

It will be taxed next month to limber up for France, ready for the Alpine Drinking Yoghort Challenge 2012.

Fantastic Mike. Well done.

To all BXC members; please consider doing this event - it's not too late: it's shaping up to be what promises to be a really fun trip, with easily 20 people taking part.

If any Classic Challengers wish to share hotel accommodation let me know. I've booked the Travelodge in Ashford and the Ibis in Epinal. Also the F1 in Charleville - Mezieres. Cheers. Mark. :) p.s. I don't snore too loudly!!

Have any Challengers found suitable accomodation (twin room) for the nights of 9th, 11th and 12th May?

Check the route plan there are some suggestions:

9th
Alternative hotel option:
http://www.sanotel.fr
Although this might be out of date because of the recent route alteration dictated by a necessary camping site switch, I suggest having another search online.


10th
Alternative Hotel options:
http://www.hotelscombined.com/Hotel/Hot ... Chanas.htm
http://www.campanile.com/hotel/en/index.aspx

11/12th
Alternative Hotel option:
Hotel Pre Vert, http://www.hotel-prevert-gap.federal-hotel.com

14th
Alternative Hotel option:
http://www.budgethotel-beatenberg.ch

Any luck with those?
