Thanks so much for all of your info. (Who is John??) We are leaving on
Wednesday and shall stay in France (at first) because of your recommendation
about Spain. We are planning to stay in the Ariège part of the Pyrénées
because I think it would be better there. There is hiking around
Aulus-les-Bains and (if there is not too much snow, we'll go into the
Couseans) If it's bad all over (we'll keep checking weather) we'll just head
further northeast into the Cévennes. Thanks again for being so kind. If we
get to Bilbao (no reservations, ever, when we go) - would you like to hook up
with us for a drink? tapas? dinner? How can we get in touch with you?
By for now.
