Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Got held up extracting the eldest from school. Arrived at tunnel 10 minutes before our booked departure- 5.51pm so we’v been offered the “next available crossing” at 01.23 tomorrow morning...

After some discussion we’ve been found a space on the 20.50

The terminal and car parks are as empty as I’ve ever seen. Apparently they’re fully booked but only running 2 trains per hour until midnight when they are running 4 per hour. Weird logic.

So we’re settling down for a lengthy dinner at Burger King (had been hoping for steak and vin rouge at Courtpaille)

There were three other similarly affected families waiting to speak to the desk and we all shared our frustrations a bit and suddenly he found a “cancellation” for us.

Very showery but quiet drive. Got to Reims at quarter past midnight. Had a good sleep and now we’re off to breakfast. Next stop Annecy via a lunch stop somewhere.

@holidayloverxx, well I've seen stark warnings in the press about Thursday being about as bad as Friday traffic wise. Also chunnel kept sending me texts warnings about it being a busy day and that I must allow for traffic and crossing delays.

Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise. So for us today its a bit of Christmas shopping, sightseeing and good food. Tomorrow is the last push to the mountains

There was one lane for the passenger traffic when we drove. I imagine it will be a bottle neck even real holiday traffic kicks in

@Hells Bells, When the lorries are like this I'm not sure how easy it is to cross the lanes to the passenger check in. I guess assess when you get to Junction 11a.

This is amazing. It looks as if I've been incredibly lucky. It has been the smallest delays I can ever recall at the tunnel we just sailed through.
We are now on the autoroute heading for rheims. The rain has stopped but there are strong blustery cross winds. Satnav is showing an eta of 21:30

Not driving until Feb half-term Shocked but I do like to follow everyone's trips snowHead

Funny how you can tick off the journey with various landmarks etc - it's just north of Lyon I really like when the scenery starts getting interesting and you can catch a glimpse of mountains. Stupidly excited when through the Lyon toll and the Alps are ahead of you.

Wish I was on the way now!
