Hi Ray,

I do agree and as you know Jean-Michel already pointed out the link as an item of interest of the Millau Viaduct in Reply#21 above. I for one would like to see it. I am also starting to look at accommodations in the Libourne area, east of Bordeaux (it is very close to our destination on Tuesday morning Oct. 2nd if we have the majority of participants to agree on the 3 day trip as proposed above) and safe parking for all cars is foremost on my mind. I will check if we can get a special rate at various locations and report back (unless I can find a volunteer for this task). :)

Dieter

Edit; Removed the second Paragraph above " We would be able to make a photo opportunity visit to the Millau Viaduct on our way to the accommodation on Oct. 1 or after Breakfast on Oct. 2 on our way to Paul Bracq’s  Ateliers (not that one can see much as one drives across this bridge, there is apparently provision at the end of the bridge to stop and take photos). Most accommodations in the Libourne are less then 50 Km to the Paul Bracq’s  Ateliers location. Also as Jean-Michel pointed Bordeaux is not so Pagoda Friendly.or after Breakfast on Oct. 2 on our way to Paul Bracq’s  Ateliers (not that one can see much as one drives across this bridge, there is apparently provision at the end of the bridge to stop and take photos)."

Sorry I made a mistake regarding the location of the Millau Viaduct. Please see Reply # 29 below

Hi all,
Just a quick question.
After leaving Montpellier would there be any interest in heading to Libourne via the Millau Viaduct ? Being relatively close to it may make it a worthy detour to see and cross such an icon in our Pagodas.
Best
Ray and Jill

I Lock this thread (sometimes I miss to lock it) since we communicate by e-mail with the group and post the results here in this thread as individuals get back to me. This way I find we can all be on the same page. I hope all are in agreement with this :)

Hi All,

As mentioned above I’ve made an error as to the location of the Viaduc de Millau. Some people have expressed the wish to see and stop by this icon (see photo below) on our way.

See also this link ——> https://feel-planet.com/millau-viaduct-france/

I got an e-mail from Jean Michel and after reviewing his various options I like to propose The following;

Day 1 - Sunday September 30; We don’t stay overnight in Montpellier. We can drive all the way to Chateau de Creissels. This would be a 425 KM trip (route to this  destination to be refined with Jean Michel’s help). There will be some highway driving, however it is Sunday and there will be no trucks. This route also has tolls, There are not many hotels, however it has a nice Chateau, open the link to see photos and details;

Here ——> http://www.chateau-de-creissels.com/en/

The Chateau is located in the valley as can be seen from the link above. In order to to drive across the bridge there would be additional KM to continue on day 2, this can be discussed with the group later, For a map see image 1 attached.

Day 2 - Monday October 1; We would continue in the direction of Libourne located just east of Bordeaux. This leg of our trip is approx. 400 KM, again the route to this  destination to be refined with Jean Michel’s help later. There are several Chateau’s in the area with safe parking.

For a map see image 2 below

Day 3 - Tuesday October 2; As can be seen from the map (image 3 below) it is only a short distance to the Bracq Ateliers. 33 KM approx. we need to think about parking the cars. I will find out from Boris Bracq once I get back in touch with him about our date change (Oct 1 to Oct 2 for our visit) what is best for the cars if there is space to park them near the Ateliers or not. If not perhaps we leave the cars at the Chateau and collect them after our visit and arrange to take several taxis or a bus? Jean Michel mentioned that Bordeaux is not very Pagoda friendly.

For a map see image 3 below,

We will check regarding accommodations later, Jean Michel offered his help, to contact several places and perhaps arrange for a good rate that then each of you can make arrangements for individually. I will PM you all that I added this post so you may review it and get back to me with your thoughts.

Thank you,

Dieter_”

Hi All,

GOOD NEWS

Jean Michel has managed to reserve a block of rooms for us for our first night September 30, 2018 at the Chateau.

i send you all an e-mail (translated from French to English) for your review. I need from each of you a reply as to what type of room you require so that Jean Michel may call them and reserve the right block of rooms.

Jean Michel will make arrangements in such a way that each of us then can contact them to reserve there room, obtain a reference number for our group, arrange for a cancellation date (such as August 30 perhaps) and see if special rate discount can be obtained.

Please PM me or e-mail me with your need for a double or single bed room.

Thank you All

Dieter

EDIT; So far as of March 8th I have replies from 10 of 10 cars for the type of room required

All except one party have now called the Hotel (see your e-mail for final location) that we shall be staying at on September 30, 2018 after the Euro Event concludes and confirmed there room using there credit card.

We do have one (1) additional room reserved and will hold this room until May 30, 2018. If by then no one contacted me to claim the 10th spot that is still open we shall let the Hotel know that we no longer need it.

Thank you again Jean Michel for your great help in getting this organized for us all. Now that we know what everyone needs for room requirements it will be simpler to find accomudations for October 1st 2018 near Bordeaux.

One correction I like to point out and that is, i think i mentioned that the Bridge near Millau is the highest bridge in the world. Well it turned out that over the past 14 years many more bridges have been constructed that are slightly taller ... see below.

Since opening in 2004, the deck height of Millau has been surpassed by several suspension bridges in China, including Sidu River Bridge, Baling River Bridge, and two spans (Beipan River Guanxing Highway Bridge and Beipan River Hukun Expressway Bridge) over the Beipan River. In 2012, Mexico's Baluarte Bridge surpassed Millau as the world's highest cable-stayed bridge. The Royal Gorge suspension bridge in the U.S. state of Colorado is also higher, with a bridge deck approximately 291 metres (955 ft) over the Arkansas River.[citation needed]... Source the Internet.

We do learn something new every day don’t we now :)

Gentlemen,

I’m happy to let you all know that everyone that will be participating in the caravan to visit The Paul Bracq Ateliers on October 2nd 2018 has now confirmed there accommodations with the Hotel (see your e-mail Inbox for details) for check in on September 30, 2018 and check out October 1st 2018.

Also good news regarding our lunch date with Paul & Boris Bracq and there wife’s on October 2nd 2018 followed after lunch by our visit to the Bracq Ateliers.

I made contact today with Boris Bracq and the plan as it stands and has been recommended by Boris (see your e-mail for details and the PDF file I shall issue to each of you at a later date). The misunderstanding about the visit date has been resolved it is October 2nd 2018.

Please refer to your e-mail Inbox for further details.

Thank you all,

Dieter

Hello,

To everyone that will be participating in the caravan to visit The Paul Bracq Ateliers!

We now have also completed our second Hotel arrangements near Bordeaux for October 1st check in and October 2nd check out. As well as our Lunch meeting with Paul and Boris Bracq and there wife(s).

Everyone should have received details of everything by e-mail by now.

I will issue to each of you a condensed Itiniary complete with maps and addresses in a PDF file. I assume each of the drivers will bring along there GPS as well as Cell Phone  ;)

Keep an eye on your Inbox, I will forward to you all further information by e-mail only pertaining to our journey after the Euro 2018 event to The Bracq Ateliers.

I'm looking forward to this trip as I am sure you are too.

Best,

Dieter

Hello Gentlemen (Members that are part of our caravan),

I send each of you a PM please have a look in your e-mail and kindly reply to the questions on devices you plan to use. We like to finalize the route to Paul Bracq Ateliers and perhaps share files with you for your GPS as well as pertinent other information as detailed in the PM.

Remember for or trip to be successful we all need to be on the same page having the same information so we can communicate should someone get lost :)

As a backup plan I like to provide each car with a PDF file that will contain maps, directions we plan to drive, addresses, gas stops and meeting points in case we loose a car or two.

As mentioned before we most likely will devide the caravan into 3 car groups to prevent anyone getting left behind, however, one never knows does one.

So please let us have your answers to the questions so we can finalize the route and then provide each of you with a good route plan. We just don't like to leave anyone behind :) btw this is NOT Fake News. ~grin~

Thank You!

Dieter

All overnight bookings are now looked after, Jean-Michel will work out the route that we will take west after the Euro Tour (September 30 to October 2nd), including stops for lunch, gas and meeting points. Once I have all the indevidual maps I will compile them into a PDF file including pertainant information like; destination addresses, cell phone numbers of the drivers etc. this way all 11 drivers will be on the same page.

So keep an eye on your Inbox also check back here I will add one more post to let you know when the PDF file was posted, just in case it ended up in your Trash Folder. Only 3 and 1/2 Months to go now, time to get excepted yes :)

Should be a great after Euro Tour outing and then meeting the Master of the Pagoda Creation what a trill it will be :)

I hope all cars made it back home safe and sound. I also hope everyone had a great time visiting the Paul Bracq Ateliers.

Garry Marks and I will spend one more day tomorrow in Nice then on Sunday morning we shall be bording our respective flights back home.

It was nice of Boris to take time out of his busy day and show us around in the Ateliers. Everyone seemed to enjoy his company during lunch not only exchanging tips and ideas in English, French yes even in German. Thank you again Boris.

All the best,

Dieter

Hi Dieter and all,

I am pleased to hear that you appreciated your visit to Paul Bracq's Ateliers and that (apparently) everybody proceeded safely back home. I hope that Ray didn't have to replace his pagoda's tyres and could fix his problem quietly and without stress.

I add a link to an album on Dropbox where I uploaded 4 videos, including 2 (numbers 4 and 5) on our convoy towards Bordeaux
