Default French trip 2022

Maybe this is an excursion we need to think about planning for the future. At the moment I'm looking at just me and a mate going next summer. Much as I love you all and had a brill time on our BPW last year, I'm not sure I'm ready to cope with a large group on a two week excursion that soon. We could look at 2022 maybe though?
My mate and I have done thousands of miles together and we understand each other well, work to the same sort of budgetary limits, and know what allowances to make for each other. I think taking any more than the two of us would need some serious planning and discussion to ensure such a large trip didn't fall apart and end in disagreements.

So, in principle, yes, an org trip to the Pyrenees would be fun, butot next summer. Let's make plans for the summer after.

Ok so this is all just about general discussion, shall we/shan't, who might be interested etc. Too soon to get too serious about it. Who knows what shape the world will be in by summer 2022.

But it might be a fun thing to do.

As a starter though, it would need to be a minimum of 10 days. Two weeks would be more comfortable.
