20 minutes later and we’re at the next service station and our planned charge point – Aire de Chateauvillain.
For a moment we think we’re trapped in the wrong place within a one way system, unable to get to the charger that we can see tantalisingly close by. We suddenly spot a second and within a few minutes are plugged in and charging. To get from 38.5% to 80% takes us only 15 minutes. That’s time enough to stock up with drinks for the next stage. [For the benefit of the tape, these drinks do not contain alcohol. Ed]
It feels like we’re back on track, humming along. That’s despite the fact we’re still 50 minutes behind. Is there a cunning plan that will save us? [No. Ed]
