yeah same as everyone else if think it's expensive for the distance but then again i suppose it's because it isn't as busy as over routes. Mrs Buzz use to live and work there for years when she was a lot younger oops 8O Looking to do a euro trip next year including spar and a france etc so will see what happens but good idea though. :wink:

Thinking of doing Holland next year in April. Camp about an hour from Amsterdam so we can take the local train into town ! Quality of campsites looks excellent. Not sure about Ferry prices yet.

:D well I'm a bit biased but havin lived here for the last 8 yrs its just a lovely Island. The scenery outstanding, the people warm & friendly.

If any of you get the chance you should come & if you come as a group I'm sure our IOMVDub club would make you at home. We know some of the best places to camp.......some of which are free.........thats if you don't mind not having showers :lol:

We can also recomend the good pubs & places to eat......the only downside is the ferry price to get here.........but worth it I can assure you!!!!!! :) :wink:

Ive just had a pm for Ian (A67MAN) saying if we can get 10 or more van we can get a cheap deal free camping and possibly a band
This could be the making of a good weekend we would be the guests of the IOMvw club, the island is beautiful.

Just agree on a date come Northwest crew there must be enough of us


Hi Simon

My Contact at the Steampacket Company has confirmed that if you can get 10 or more vans interested the cost say next March would be £115 return for a bus with two passengers

Camping will be free and I could possible come up with a quality band (just need some more time on that so bare with me)

Cheers
Ian
