We'd go North Sea Ferries from up here. Its easier, if not cheaper.
Zeebrugge is less than an hour from Calais, and the savings in fuel,
time and hassle are worth it every time to us

529 return Hull Zeebrugge with 4 Berth outside cabin Includes caravan (or
trailer with a landy on!)

Couldn't find a 101 option on the drop downs though...odd ;0)

how about forgetting the off road site and travelling a little further
down....

http://www.directferries.co.uk/routes.htm

Say, Marseille to Tunis, quick zip along the coast road into Algeria, hop
over the border into Morroco, Back over to Malaga and a leisurely pootle up
North through the Spanish Interior to Bilbao.... now to work out what would
cost more, Ferries or Petrol (Assumes 101) :0)

I already have this seed planted, by the time the 101's ready the kids will
be old enough to take the wheel :0)

There are deals to be had, but when you figure on 150 quid (or worse) in
fuel to Dover, 80 quid in hotel somewhere between here and there quite
often, six to eight hours of motoring hell and it doesn't sound so
unreasonable. We usually go inside cabin anyway, though we did get
upgraded to a suite once. Very plush.

101s fit by the way - we've taken Bob on business once.

101 GS with the hood and screens off should be a doddle then...

Surely yon cave like hole can be gardened, like the freshly 101 sized
pit at K-Quads (just rebent the light brackets ;-) )
