No - I am specially collecting him before the tunnel as I booked the high vehicle section (for the width of course).

I will lose him soon after Calais as there are a few junctions there 8)

Although I don't have the French camera detector anymore as it is still in the M, so will have to keep him with me a bit longer as I can never remember where the 3 cameras are that we pass ...

At least I will be useful for periods of the trip, though I'll never really know where we are :D

Note my comment above about keeping quiet about the time we need to leave on the Friday...

As soon as we meet up at Maidstone I will say "hey, wee Bing, looking forward to leaving the hotel at 530 on Friday? " :evil:

Excellent point Mark, no need to adjust for time zones to soften the blow. May as well give the full whack :lol:
