Hi Guys,

Crendonman the 'lurker' here :D :thumb:

Now I am back in dear ol' blighty, can we agree a time and venue where we can meet for the run up to Elvington (Friday Morning)

M11 Services has gotta be favourite (Stansted or Peterboro ?).

I'm asking now 'cos if its raining on Sunday, I'm not going to be at The Grasshopper.

Such a wimp! :-(

Why dont us southerners meet at an earlier point

(The Grasshopper / clacket Lane ?)

Would be good to do the tunnel in Convoy.

Where are you all :confused:

Lets agree a departure time from south of the tunnel and we can work out collection points and times from there.

Brian,

I spoke to DaveN and PurpleAK yesterday at the Westerham meet and it looks unlikely that they will be attending. As you already know Plod cannot go so the S E Expedition, is currently floundering.:-(

I am not going out of my way to meet at The Grasshopper, maybe we could meet somewhere else, say A25/A21/M25 Junction near Riverhead??

May I suggest that we start off around 10.00hrs, Dartford Tunnel by 10.30, bottom of M11 by 11.00, top of M11 by 12.00hrs.

Then its a long haul up A1 (A1M) dont under estimate the time it will take, particularly bearing in full compliance with the statutory speed limits:angry: , meeting up en route :D , breakdowns, natural breaks :whatever: etc, etc.

So I guess 12.30hrs at Peterborough Services (A1) to pick any Essex/Midland wide boys!!:thumb: :thumb:

Dont want to arrive too late otherwise it will be too late to assist Rob.

What do you think??

Oh I nearly forgot!!!

That would mean Birchanger Green Services (Stansted Airport) around 11.15/11.30hrs

Hi, we will join you at Coltersworth which is about 25 miles north of Peterborough on the A1 at the services. I think you should be there about 1pm but I am meeting Kev there to give him a lift so will get there a bit early so we are ready to roll straight away. My mobile is 07753 868431. Looking forward to a great weekend and more new friends, see you all soon, Simon
