I am joining the convoy in France but I thought the ferry was from Dover to Dunkerque but now I read Dover to Calais. Am I confused? Please let me know so I show up in the right place at 9am.
Also please add me to the convoy list:

ClausHema 1966 Deluxe
It is Dover to Dunkerque ;) For the main Cool Flo cruise anyway, or Hull to Roterdam for the ones from the north of the UK.
RHD 54 Barndoor

Premier Inn booked on 17th the good thing about this place is it overlooks where the hardcore Vdubbers will sleep on the harbour front . Tried that last year before EBI but just couldn,t settle :oops: . should be a nice VW village in Dover the night before 8) :D

Wow. Although I'm driving down from Holland just to turn around and convoy back I'm feeling kinda lame for not crossing over and getting up at 4am to take the boat back to France. Need to find a hotel on the French side where I can safely park while waiting for you all. I 'm not even going to go into my Barndoor envy.

There is a very cheap, clean hotel on the 1st roundabout from the docks in Dunkerque. http://www.premiere-classe-dunkerque-su ... index.aspx

Thanks for that.
I am worried about leaving the bus alone all night. Any thoughts on that. It does have a remote starter cut-off and GPS tracking. Is there going to be anyone sleeping in a camper on the docks who could keep an ear out?
