All,

 

Here is the link to the event.

 https://event4x4offroadbelgium.wordpress.com/for-three-days/

 

I and some others have registered for the event in Sept. I plan on staying in a local hotel/BB instead of camping as id have to buy all the gear anyway and besides i don't think she would camp!

It is not easy going through how to pay!

The easiest and cheapest I found is online though via  Post Office/International Money transfer.

Digger,

When we have done Chambon before - we stayed at this travel lodge.. just around corner from ferry, caught the 07:00 ish ferry and then trump on down some 400 miles for the night

'm happy to book this too for Thurs night 15th.

I didn't realise that the Chateau was only about 3 hours from the Channel coast. A lot nearer than Dover for me on this side.  Are you going across on the ferry then? What about the tunnel?  I will have a look!

I haven't actually got that far into organizing that side of things, 

Ive booked/reserved the hotel/bb from Thursday night until Monday for now.

I guess the plan was to look at ferry or euro nearer the time. As its only a few hours the other side its no so much an issue for me staying in dover or Folkstone the night before. Chambon - yes- as its much further down

Hi Doodle, I only know one person who is  familiar with this area. They tell me Namur is lovely place. I just booked (cancellable} some where acceptable whether I'm one or two in Andenne  which is nearest. It all seemed very booked up there when I looked.

Its my belief that cheapest ferry bookings are advertised on a Tuesday, so I am going to look again tomorrow. I'll let you know what I decide.

it is a nice area, Namur is good, Liege is really rough, as are a few of the south Belgian towns, car and contents theft is a big problem, due to a very high amount of illegal immigrants that are living off what they can steal, i would advise camping on site, the facilities are very good.   i lived in Liege for 3 years, the language is french.

Hi guys,

 

For info I paid for the Belgium event by Bank Transfer. I haven't decided yet if I go B&B or Camping.

 

I will look into that soon.

Thanks Frosty. After reading your comments I did a bit of 'digging'  too!

I am now booked into ''Jardin du The'' in Namur. At the end of the day if weather is good and if I am on my own or have a passenger who is happy to do so, I will camp. Otherwise the 'Jardin du the looks good and it has private parking. I have also booked 'Premier inn ,Dover East' for the 15th and the 20th. My ferry is 16th 07.50 Dover to Calais P&O.

Dear JOC members attending this event,

have you received an email from the Belgian Jeepers regarding a panoramic Road Book? If not check your spam folder. It is not compulsory so it is entirely up to you. Basically it's a touristic ride of about 3 hours to discover the beauty of the Belgium countryside with a stop to taste the local products in a Farm. No off roading there but that sounds really nice so I booked myself for the 10am ride. Paull aka Doodle is also booked for that time. Your email will give you 3 choices of departure so if you fancy doing it with us pick the 10am option.
