TUT Fill up before you come across!!

I live in the South West of France, and at the present moment there are port blockades by cash strapped fishermen and there is a Train Strike. A pleasent trip to La Rochelle on wednesday last nearly had us stranded there. Luckily I'd filled up in Aulney after a wait in a lengthy queue. However our friends in their MX5 thought it'd be OK. Well, we couldn't find petrol in La Rochelle, and at Rochefort it was the same story, with the big supermarkets being sold out. We found a corner garage selling fuel and there was an enormous queue with police in attendance. We carried on, and eventually found a small supermarket selling fuel but limited to 30Euros per car. So if you're coming over here for a vacation or a jaunt, keep your tank topped up. Things may be better, but I don't know. SO BEWARE TAKE CARE KEEP TOPPED UP IF YOU CAN. Enjoy your holiday on the lovely French roads. Regards to all louis boy
