Timetable - IMPORTANT

Post by Mike Bottomley on Mon Mar 06, 2017 9:05 pm

Hopefully everyone will by now have received version 1 of the expedition timetable based on the doodle poll. Please post here if the dates work for you, if there are any problems, or if you're not already on the timetable please let us know dates you can make.

It would be great for folk to start booking flights, arranging car hire etc asap as prices will go up. We haven't had confirmation of the permit yet, but i am not envisaging any problems with this.

Thanks,
Mike

Flights and car rental

Post by Steph on Fri Mar 10, 2017 11:39 am

It is also worth mentioning to people that flights are at their lowest at the moment but will rapidly rise soon - going on precident here.

Also, Car rental will be expensive that time of year so book ASAP!

It would suit me better to shift my two weeks on the timetable earlier to between June 24th and July 8th.

Is that likely to fit in with other folks at that point in terms of car hire?

Hi Mark. Great, have amended the timetable. Re car hire, it should work fine as there'll be a few heading out on the 24th (steph, plus hopefully jock/reuben/fleur) and then heading back to UK on the 8th or 9th July. Once we know folk are happy with the timetable we can start booking things.

Fleur......Steph is thinking of heading out with Diff on 28th June (Weds). Fancy coming out with us that day for a week and a half, so until 8th/9th July?

My dates are not on the list yet. I was thinking of coming out around the 24th June and staying until 8 July or thereabouts, for two weeks max. I can't come out any earlier, but could move the trip forward into July by up to a week. I would love to share transport in Spain.

Hey Pauline. Thanks for your msg! 24th June - 8th July would be excellent if you can make it then :-) There will also be a few people with the same dates, and so will be easy to sort transport.

Hi All, I've not looked at flights yet, but my plan is to head out on 28th June and return on 16th July. I'm happy to book a hire car . I think Stephs dates match up, anyone else want a lift? Diff

I will be travelling by car arriving, not sure when heading out but latest arrival date is 8th July.
Departing 22nd July for Cantabria via Bilbao airport picking up Miri.

Unlike 2016, we won't be able to use my car as expedition truck.
I will have lots of space heading South to Picos but the date is in the middle of the expedition, so won't be particularly helpful getting expedition kit out there.
Also - I won't be able to return any kit I bring kit to the UK as I need to transport three cavers from Cantabria to PSM and expect to be fully loaded.

Hi, as it stands at the moment, Dave and I will be heading out for the first 2 weeks in July (as per the timetable). Will probably aim for Dover-Calais and the long drive through France.
Cheers, Helen

HI Guys

I’m down in the timetable for June 24th-July 9th but not sure if I’ll be able to take two full weeks off work and then have to arrive home and work during marching season.. Will try to start looking at flight options this evening, probably leaving dub June 24th, possibly flying back a bit earlier around July 4th or 5th . Or would it be a big hassle if I shifted my dates out to the first two weeks in July as I’d get bank holiday days on July 11th and 12th and would get to escape dodge city for bonfire season Smile

Jock, ideally we need you earlier but I understand where your coming from in terms of best use of holiday.

If Stevie and Claire can commit to two weeks from the 24th your off the hook or you can recruit two able, sound replacements for your original dates as per the timetable link above. BTW to all, there still will be plenty of exploration in the first week too as it's already rigged.

No worries Steph. I’d be more keen on helping out with any set up donkey work as it my first time out so I’ll see what the flights options are looking like for June 24th this evening, but will probably need to come back earlier at some point on that Frist week in July. I don’t really have any major preferences for dates and should be able to work on July 11th and 12th to get the time back.

Cheers

Jock

Alight guys.. tis looking like flight options from Dublin are fairly limited without having to transfer via England.

Most practical option seems to be a direct Ryanair DUB-Santander flight

Leaving Friday June23rd arriving 9pm Friday evening, back on July 5th or 7th for about 200 euro with 20 kg bag

Reuben, Steve Muh, Claire, MarkS – any chance that any of you might be thinking about flying into Santander June 23rd evening or early on the Saturday morning for a car pool?

Cheers

jock

Yes, seems sensible, Fleur.

Dates

Post by Howard W on Wed Mar 22, 2017 8:50 pm

Hi Guys, my shoulder's still on the mend and keeping my fingers crossed to regain fitness to join you all. My potential dates may alter slightly (as in be slightly longer) as in an ideal world it makes sense that I travel over at the same time as Phil Keith & Stu and stay out for the same dates, that way we can share logistics but I need to float this with them first as I am still not certain I'll have full function of my shoulder and I don't want to muck up their plans. A job for tommorow. If I can come out I would intend to stay at the refuge when not underground.
