Hi Chic,
Great idea to meet at Harthill, I know sandy thinks we can make it in an hour, but i like to be a little conservative, what time at Harthill?

Cheers,

Andy

Sandy

Speed restrictor has been installed for some time and affectionately goes by the name of Heather :lol: - also we are not used to negotiating our way through the wegies :wink:

Breakfast would be very nice - thank you - just bring the bacon butties to Balloch

Hi!
We're going too - but not being anti-social - we're going to Glasgow on Saturday and "overnighting" there.
So we'll see you all at Balloch - and if you've all got "full tanks and full tums", we'll be able to keep up with you!

Hi Chic,

Living in Cumbernauld has its plus points, apart from the excellent facilities and the wonderful town centre, it means I dont have to follow you for 90 minutes down the M8 in 1st gear! My clutch couldn't handle that again, remember the Skye run. Fortunately you were up front with Gavin and Ian, where the roads were clear, we were near the back where it was a different story. :cry:

Anyway, looking forward to the 25th. It might even be dry.

Don

Good to see living in such a sublime location has not affected your humour.

I do remember Skye - well at least until about 8.00pm - but seem to recall that Gavin and myself were left alone up front thinking the rest of the group had got lost - obviously the problem was not your clutch but a confusion between the brake and accelerator pedal.

Trust you are not still chasing round the garden - or was that the dogs

look forward to seeing you both

Hi Chic,

Its living here thats developed my sense of humour :D.
Thank goodness for the 24 hour ASDA and Tesco, at least there is something to do at night.

It was the dogs that were chasing each other around the garden :(

On the Skye run it wasn't so much the confusion between the brake and the accelerator, but the moving chicane ahead of us.

Hi all, which route are you taking? Are you heading along the A85 from Tyndrum and then doing a circuit that takes you round by Connel, Benderloch and Appin, back to Ballachulish and then through Glencoe?
If so, Linda and I may ( a very big may) meet up with you somewhere en route. It is about a 260 mile round trip from our house to Ballachulish, but we have to be in Inverness on Sunday anyway and a run from there to Ballachulish would be good.

I found the route details, it would be a 320 mile round trip just to meet up with you all at Connel :cry: So, it looks like a weekend of gardening :(

Hope you all enjoy the run ..... I doubt I'll make it as I wouldn't like to drive those roads in convoy (would prefer to drive them at my own pace).

Set off later and catch up for lunch :lol:
