What a brilliant idea



French meat is expencive and rubbish so we take enough for the whole stay and as fresh milk is not a common thing there we freeze 4 pint cartons of milk too.
we even took French fries last year " coals to Newcastle as they say "

These are amazing. Went to a car show in June last year. 32c heat and it was out in the sun all day. The ice packs were still frozen solid after 3days. We all stuck our food in there. Just wish I had the boot space for it will all my other camping gear

Don't be scared most french roads are dramatically quieter than British ones.
Things to remember as in the UK cities and the ring roads / approaches are busy, toll roads are fine as all the nutters " Dutch & Germans" stay in the fast lane.
Rural roads and minor duel carriageways are really quiet, i fact I recall a few years ago being on a duel carriageway in Brittany thinking I must have turned onto a road that was closed because I hadn't see a single vehicle after being on it for 20 minutes..!!!
Be brave and go for it. Just avoid Paris
Oh and breakfast cereal is ouber expensive too, really take as much stuff as possible.

Oh thank you, you and your cool box have given me added vigor !!!!!!!!!!! We will go and those few words of advice will make it all the less worrying too, thank you so much, and you have made it sound easier too,....as for Paris, no I dont actually fancy Paris really, so no loss there I will leave it to the big boys and enjoy the real France but take my own milk, meat and french fries xxx thanks again

should I vote hot?

Although please bear in mind that it is illegal to transport meat across the channel !! I take meat with me but I'm always prepared to loose the lot at customs if they catch you!
