We’re meeting in Lisieux at 1:45pm, which is around 45 minutes/35 miles south of Le Havre.

Just come across this thread, is it too late for us to tag along?

We have four of us heading down in one car on the 07:20 Eurotunnel crossing on Thu 5th July, which means we should arrive at Calais around 08:55 local time. I guess that would make it difficult to make the 1st meeting point 60 mins from Calais for 09:30, unless we really pressed on! I guess we could barge on down the boring A-roads for a bit and catch you up for one of the later stops. Where would be a good place to catch you? Looks like the second & third stops might be off the menu now, but if there's a convenient point along the way that we could join, then it'd be nice to join some likeminded folk on some nice D-roads rather than plodding down the dull A-roads.

Nope, not too late.

Although I’ve planned a meeting time of 9:30am, we’ll not be setting off until 10:00am as there always seems to be at least one car running late!

So, you could probably make the first meeting point, although allowing for refuelling, catching a bite to eat and a having loo break might mean it’s a little bit frantic.

You could comfortably meet us at the second meeting point though. We’ll be there around 11:45am and will likely stop anyway to stretch our legs. Using the autoroutes from the Eurotunnel, the second meeting point is just over 2 hours away.

If you decide you’d like to join us, let me know and I’ll add you to the list.
