It's alright for you locals be t we foreigners have to choose between M5, M4 direct, or round Gloucester and down by the Severn to the M4 or Gloucester and down the Wye Valley and Phil has gone AWOL for texts and I haven't washed the car yet as I have been wallpapering which must be completed tomorrow for happiness to reign!

Bear in mind we may not be back to the pub until around 6pm.
It's a nice spot for a quiet drink before we get back though, so no bother really. :thumleft:

Hi all

Had a great time today. Enjoyed the convoy trip especially the twisty bits. Good to meet you all and hope you all had a safe journey home.

I got home to find the posts delivered some nice shiny bits Image

This was well overdue, and then we go and have probably the largest turnout in living memory! :lol:

Great run, great company, and a pretty darn good steak too.

We have to do it again now, but with a slight tweak to the route to avoid what feels like the longest town in the world! (Actually several towns all in a row)
As Wayne suggested, we could just turn round and head back the way we came.. :thumright:

I can't comment on past meets but the drive was brilliant for the first 2 3rds so yeah , turn around and hit the mountains back on ourselves which looking at timings would only add an extra 15 mins . I must add this photo Image
Which would probably get me dick of the day badge , I popped outside for a ciggy and put my sunglasses back to the car , only to realise I had left the handbrake off and car out of gear - another six foot and it would have been all scratched in the rear end of a fairly new Range Rover ImageImageImageImageImage

Good to see everyone today and catch up!

I definitely second the plan of turning around after the good roads and going back on ourselves! Didn't realise that it was a epically long 30mph stretch heading back down the valley :/ Thanks to Wayne for leading.

Hope you manage to get the car fixed up soon Tony. :) Fingers crossed the decat helps!

If not you know where I am Tony :thumleft:

Great to see everyone and yes I think it's the biggest turnout we've had. Good to put some faces to names too :) I had literally just put the car back together less than an hour before I arrived. Maybe next time I'll be able to join the run too :)

Thanks for coming everyone =D>

More of the same = the Northern contingent really enjoyed the meet up, tho unfortunately my plan to keep the miles off the R3 may have been derailed now I have seen some of the roads that are just down the street from us :twisted:

Great crowd of people and a nice meal to boot. So ........ when's the next one?

Great to finally get another South Wales meet together, really enjoyed catching up with a few of the past members and meeting lots of new members.
Hopefully we can get another one arranged this year.
