@ Jason: thank for figuring out you route, but 3 hours (when everything works) in addition to flight time and getting from here to there might be a bit to much time at all. Spending this time I can also think of driving by car and take a ferry (which I wanted to avoid).
@ Mr-shifter: a pick-up would be great, but flights from here to Gatwick are rare and expensive. Might be easier for me getting an early flight to LHR and then taking a bus (megabus?) to Gatwick. What do you think? Might this be an option?
Do you return on sunday? So I would try to get a light flight back.
To be honest I thought it would be easier getting there, but I like those kind of trips.
If you can get to Gatwick that’s no problem. I will drive down after lunch on the Saturday and be back 6-7 ish on the Sunday. If we can make something work then that’s no problem. I can also drop you off at Southampton train station if that’s easier. There will be ways and means.
Allright then - I'll try to get an early flight to LHR then via bus to Gatwick. For the return I'll have to figure out what's the best way for everyone. I don't want you or anyone else to have any circumstances or planning because of my flight departure.
Maybe I will leave a bit earlier and try Jasons route back.
Edit: had a short talk with my wife in the meantime. Maybe I'm a little bit late in planning for this FF and better try to get there next time.
Then I'll maybe do this trip with a fellow collector from Germany and we will combine it with a roundtrip along the coast.
