South Wales Meet - Saturday 10th November, 18:00

Pub meets, drives and social events. For good food and good company while the car stays in the car park, or for a pleasurable drive through the countryside.

Our female cat is called Gracie day to day, but her full racing name, is The Great Green Arkleseizure.

Also, in our black R3, I am still trying to figure out what to install that would let me have a black button, labelled in black on a black background, that lights up black to let you know you have done it. :-k
I have one of those but cannot seem to put my finger on it!

Trying again to get this run to work next month. 15th September due to Forge on the 8th.

First post updated, let me know if you can make both run and meet, or one or t'other. 8)

Arghhhh - I have bust it! Had forgotten that the date had to be shifted for Forge and therefore carefully arranged to go camping on the third weekend of the month to ensure we did not clash with the meet :crybaby:

My plans for a run seems to be doomed to failure. Let's see if anyone is in over the next week.

Well if you fancy a bit of a run, how about Llandeilo - Llandovery - Sennybridge - Abercraf - home?
You will know [ I suppose] the most interesting road to Llandeilo (I don't) ; to Llandovery is a fast, open road
(easy cruise [at the national speed limit, of course :) ] )
To Sennybridge is twisty. :yeah: :yeah:
I don't know the road from Sennybridge to Abercraf, but it looks pretty open on Google's Streetmap (I fancy using it sometime!)
No doubt Castle Coombe would beat the above, hands down!

I have driven that road before , turned right from cross hands , I was looking for a static caravan to buy to live in . I ended up following a Peugeot van and cruising at 80-100 in my Nissan Navara , very fast roads , I ended up in Builth wells .
Got distracted and never found the caravan

My car was all over place once too and I was advised it was the nut behind the wheel that required adjustment.

It must be worn shocks then as the PZ suspension is said to transform the cars handling, but how it has on your car!

Great to see everyone, but I must apologise to Pat and Caren for the magical mystery tour back to the M4. At one point there was a 50/50 choice, and I got it 100% wrong ;-)
