For a day spent on logistics, today was a pretty awesome day. Everyone was up and ready to go at our chosen time. Geoff and Lynn already knew the way to the Canal D’ourcq, so they led us over there. The ride down the canal was easy and lovely. When we reached the end of the canal, Brent and Laura used their stellar navigation skills to take us nearly directly to Gare de Bercy where we arrived about 30minutes before the Rhonda/Brent/Lynn/Geoff train departed. The train station was on one level so there were no ups-and-downs to get onto the platform. An easy load onto the train and the four of us were off, with Laura and Ann following on the next train. At Nevers, Lynn got directions to the campground and we had an easy ride over. Upon getting our campsites arranged (at the only ‘zeltplatz’ I’ve seen so far in France), Geoff and Brent dumped their gear and headed back to the Gare to collect Laura and Ann while Lynn and I put up our tents.
The campground has great washrooms, free WiFi near the reception building, a laundromat (which we’re not ready for yet), free showers and taps for potable water.
