Disaster struck en route to run. As I came through Clyde Tunnel I got distracted by a signpost for Irvine A736. While wondering if I should take that exit I hit a puddle of water which dislodged the sunp guard which at speeeds of over 20mph was hitting road. Had to limp home feeling @?%?** stupid. Sorry but had no phone numbers to let anyone know.

Sorry you guys, couldn't make it today. After getting home from hols yesterday, and pouring rain here this morning, decided to do the household chores instead - poor substitute and one that won't happen too many times I can tell you!  Hope you all had a great day.  At least it'd be quieter without our exhausts!!!

Slightly different perspective from the passenger seat, good run good company.

Food was great again, well done Phil.

Interesting run today and weren't we lucky with the weather, hood up only for a few miles before lunch..which was once again excellent.
Thanks Phil and Cameron for helping.

Pity the gremlins struck today, re Ronnie and Liz & Don,
Stella & Nige...that excuse is not acceptable.

Thanks to Phil for a great run. The lunch at Malin Court was excellent. An enjoyable day out that even the weather couldn't spoil.

Paul & I had a great day, good company and good grub and weather not too bad at all!!!
Thanks to Phil & Douglas & anyone else who helped with organising! :-)

We'd like to add our thanks to Phil for a lot of hard work and planning. The Malin Court was excellent again and the company as usual was brilliant.
The treasure hunt certainly adds a bit of interest for the passenger too.

Glad you guys had a great run.
Stella & Nige - I feel your pain!  After being at the theatre all week involved in a show, I too had a horrendous amount of chores to do. Not pleasant, I can tell you! Can't wait to the next run now that my Sundays are clear.

8th May 2006 12:21 :: Gordon & Janice
I should have mentioned, it was a very important landmark for our car during the run, we passed the 100,000 mile mark somewhere around Skares...

Really looking forward to the next 100,000 :-)

Phil, VMT for the magical mystery tour. Magical for the roads. Mystery, where the hell are we? Lunch was excellent. The Malin Court even gets a mention in the Sunday Herald's Great Scottish Drives supplement.
