ok.. i've found my "remittance slip" for the crossing. I guess that's enough. Will they require any ID. Photo Driving licence ok? surely no need for a passport...

just been thinking about them, not much fun with kids to. Can they all sleep in the van? don't fancy them setting up camp in this, I'd do the travelodge in Liverpool if it was me.

Thanks for the concern, camped on the north face of the Wirrel Thursday and last night, fantastic site and very friendly but bloody cold on Thursday, better yesterday.

Just got home and Mike's getting dinner on. 8)

Thank you all on the IOM it was fantastic, more photos to be added by us later. :wink:

I've asked Doc to set up an IOM section, like the Bad Camberg bit so we can have all the posts there.
